London, 10 April 2015: The contemporary SsangYong Tivoli B-segment SUV arrives in the UK this summer with prices starting from just £12,950 (Rs. 11.79 lakhs).
“This is a car that will really put SsangYong on the map and change brand perceptions,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK. “By any criteria but especially style, interior finish and value for money, Tivoli stands close scrutiny. The verdict from those who have already seen and driven the car is that we’re on to a winner. But ultimately it’s the customer who wins: this is a modern, safe, well-built and comprehensively equipped car, and with a price and warranty no one else can match. Anyone considering a small SUV will have to put it on their list.”
The Tivoli is extremely well equipped – see specification list attached, and for simplicity the range comprises three main model options – SE, EX and ELX, while for those who want further individualisation, the My Tivoli programme offers a wide number of further choices.
The Tivoli SE starts from just £12,950, and is available with a choice of a 1.6 litre Euro 6 petrol or diesel engine (from August) with manual transmission. Finished in a smart grey cloth trim, it includes 16” alloy wheels, cruise control, a stop/go system (petrol), Smart steering (normal, comfort and sport modes), an RDS/Bluetooth radio and seven airbags.
The EX adds the option of automatic transmission on the petrol powered car, (diesel automatic and diesel 4×4 manual are available through the My Tivoli personalisation programme), grey or beige leather upholstery, 18” alloy Spiral wheels, dual zone climate control, 7” touch screen smart audio system with rear view camera, heated front seats, front fog lights and a luggage load cover.
The top of the range ELX is available with the full choice of petrol, diesel, manual and automatic transmission, front wheel drive or 4×4, and features Diamond cut alloy wheels, a smart instrument cluster, smart keyless starting, front & rear parking sensors, privacy glass, rear spoiler, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, full TomTom navigation system with 7” touch screen, rear view camera, and the option of the Styling pack and Red leather pack via the ‘My Tivoli’ personalisation programme.
