The SsangYong Tivoli (Korean: 쌍용 티볼리) is a subcompact crossover SUV made by the SsangYong Motor Company. It is SsangYong's first new model under Mahindra & Mahindra ownership. The car is named after the Italian town of Tivoli, Lazio, and was chosen because it can be read as "I love it" in reverse.
The Tivoli was in testing and development for the three years prior to its announcement in November 2014 and was revealed in concept with the project name X100. It was launched in South Korea in January 2015.
The Tivoli is offered with a choice of petrol or diesel 1.6-liter engines and is available in two or four-wheel drive. It is equipped with a six-speed manual or AISIN automatic gearbox, which SsangYong claims is as quick and efficient as a dual-clutch setup.
On May 2019, SsangYong revealed teaser image and main specs of first facelift of Tivoli. The new version of the car will be launched on June 4th in South Korea.
The facelifted Tivoli received a new exterior design, including new LED headlights, foglights and new taillight graphics. The dashboard also reshaped, with a new centre stack, air vents, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, and a 9.0-inch central infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The updated Tivoli features with a new 1.5-liter turbo petrol engine, which will be replace existing 1.6-liter petrol engine.
The SsangYong Tivoli XLV (sold in South Korea as the SsangYong Tivoli Air) is an extended version of the Tivoli. It is lengthened behind the rear wheels by 245 mm (9.6 in), increasing the rear storage space from 423 to 720 liters. The XLV is offered with all-wheel drive and a 1.6-liter diesel engine.
The Tivoli equipped with seven airbags, including a driver knee-airbag. It also features smart safety driving system including Autonomous Emergency Brake System, (AEBS), Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), High Beam Assist (HBA), and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR).
In Korean New Car Assessment Program (KNCAP) the SsangYong Tivoli received top safety rating of Grade 1 (5 stars; 91.9 pts.) on a 2015 registration.
Euro NCAP & ANCAP
The rating for the SsangYong Tivoli was first published in 2016. At that time, autonomous emergency braking was sold as an option, as part of a safety pack, and Euro NCAP published two ratings: one with only standard equipment and another with the safety pack. Since February 2018, the content of the safety pack - AEB City, AEB Inter-urban and AEB Pedestrian - has been made standard equipment and the rating has been changed to reflect this change.
