Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Part of company’s turnaround in the local market.

Six months after Ssangyong launched the petrol-powered Tivoli in Korea, the company has added a diesel variant, thus increasing its appeal to a wider audience.
