SsangYong Tivoli – Korean hit

SsangYong Tivoli – Korean hit

This is SsangYong’s first self-developed model, which was created after the manufacturer was taken over by Mahindra & Mahindra from India. It is expected to compete with cars such as Nissan Yuke and Peugeot 2008.

The production version of the SsangYong Tivoli is 4.2 m long and has five seats. However, the manufacturer announces more variants in the future.

In the first period, SsangYong Tivoli will be available only with front-wheel drive, but the manufacturer is also announcing a version with all-wheel drive. The park is offered with gasoline and diesel engines with a displacement of 1.6 liters. The new e-XGi160 four-cylinder petrol engine with 126 hp and a maximum torque of 157 Nm will be mated as standard to a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional six-speed automatic gearbox.
