Ssangyong Tivoli compact SUV spotted in the wild – Spied
It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Will be the smallest and least expensive Ssangyong in the market.
Ssangyong had revealed the first images of their upcoming B-segment SUV, the Tivoli, as a Christmas gift to fans. However, thanks to Auto Sina, here’s a spyshot of the Tivoli, giving us an idea of how the compact SUV looks in the wild
The Ssangyong Tivoli borrows design cues from XIV Air and XIV Adventure concepts that were unveiled at the 2014 Paris Auto Show. The front end of the Tivoli features a sporty looking fascia with deep bumpers, an aspect that can help the Korean company target the youth.
Under the hood, the Tivoli will be available with 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines, both of which are reported to have been jointly developed with Mahindra. They will come mated to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic, which will drive the front wheels or all wheels in the top-end trim. At the moment, power figures have not been revealed.
The Ssangyong Tivoli will be publicly revealed next month in Korea. At the moment, Mahindra is undecided on launching the Tivoli in India.
Competitors: Hyundai ix25, Kia KX3, Nissan Juke, Ford Ecosport, Honda Vezel.
Expected Price: Around 15,000 GBP (INR 15 lakhs).
Expected Launch: January 2015 in Korea, followed by other global markets.
