Is the Korean brand's new entry-level product.
The new Ssangyong Tivoli compact SUV will be launched in Korea later today. In anticipation, the company has uploaded a preliminary Korean brochure and a few studio photographs.
The car's interior, of not much has been shown so far, sports a customizable dual-tone layout with a black and red color scheme with silver inserts used for the AC vents. A flat-bottomed multifunction steering wheel, a central touchscreen with integrated Maps, automatic climate control, multi-information display, automatic transmission, perforated seats, 7 airbags (dual front, side, curtain and driver's knee), tablet holder and switchable instrument cluster display are some of its key features.
The vehicle has a boot capacity of 423 liters which can be expanded by folding the second row of seats. The sub-Korando crossover will come with 1.6-liter petrol and diesel engines, matched to manual and automatic transmissions.
The Tivoli will launch with a choice of 8 exterior colours, five dual-tone interior options, white or black contrast roof and five variant lines.
Global sales of the Tivoli will begin in the second quarter of 2015, though Mahindra remains undecided on launching the vehicle in India.
