Auto Expo-debut likely.
Motorbash has posted more spyshots of the Ssangyong Tivoli testing in India before its expected premiere at the Auto Expo 2016 in Greater Noida in February. Mahindra hasn't confirmed the arrival of the model in India nor its debut at the Auto Expo, but haven't ruled them out either.
The SsangYong Tivoli was unveiled and launched in its home market, South Korea, in January 2015. It is the company's first global compact SUV which was developed in four years. The crossover was the first all-new model from SsangYong after Mahindra took over the brand.
Measuring 4,195 mm in length, 1,795 mm width, 1,590 mm in height, 2,600 mm in wheelbase, 167 mm in ground clearance and having 423 litres of boot volume, the Tivoli was designed based on the SsangYong XIV Air and XIV Adventure concepts that were showcased at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
To rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster and the Maruti S-Cross, the Tivoli is expected to be offered with the e-XDi 160 1.6-litre diesel engine in India. The motor produces 115 PS and 300 Nm at 1,500-2,500 rpm in the Euro-spec model, and is offered with the choice of a 6-speed Aisin automatic or manual transmission.
