SsangYong Tivoli (2015–)

Model History

January 2015

SsangYong Tivoli unveiled

The new crossover takes its name from Tivoli, the Italian town near Rome with a reputation for style. Noted for its cultural heritage and beautiful location, the gardens at Villa d’Este have inspired many others to use the name, including the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.

4,195mm long x 1,795mm wide x 1,590mm high on a 2,600mm wheelbase.

Cluster illumination can be personalised to any of six subtle background colours red: blue, sky-blue, yellow, white and black. There are three interior trim colours, black, beige and red, with the red interior package especially designed for customers looking for a sportier ambiance.

Generous luggage space of up to 423 cubic litres is enough to carry three full size golf club bags, and the second row of seats can also be folded fully flat for further carrying capacity.

The powertrain of the Tivoli is compact with the choice of 1.6 litre petrol or diesel engines. In development for over three years, the car has been tested from minus 42 degrees in winter to desert temperatures of over 50 degrees, and with brake testing in mountain altitudes of up to 4,000 metres.

Other notable features include an advanced timing chain to limit engine noise, and for the first time in Korea, the application of an aluminum bed plate with high press die-casting to the bottom section of the cylinder block to increase engine strength and durability.

An AISIN 6-speed automatic transmission is also available on Tivoli. Already well proven, this unit is engineered to improve fuel efficiency and minimise power loss. Gear ratios range from 0.67 through to 4.04 help to transfer power smoothly through the gear changes, and further contribute to minimising vibration and noise.

The Electric Smart Steer system, fitted as standard, offers three different steering modes - Normal, Comfort and Sport. A double skin insulated bulkhead between the engine bay and the cabin, also minimises the ingress of engine noise.

Additional active safety features include ESP (Electronic Stability Program), LED daytime running lights, and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

Tivolis come with seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag, and an advanced seat belt system with dual pre-tensioners, which automatically tightens the belt to hold passengers in place during an impact to prevent injury.

The principal concept supporting the Tivoli’s infotainment system is that it optimises the technology available via smart devices. By simply connecting your smart phone with the HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) cable, videos and music can be streamed to the 7 inch display screen, which is also linked with a rear view camera.

Tivoli features a dual zone air conditioning system with temperature that can be adjusted to seven different levels. It can also be set to three different modes, plus a memory function. There’s a smart key entry and locking facility, and a six sensor (two front and four rear) park-assist system to aid safe and convenient parking.

Additional standard convenience features include a luggage screen, one-touch automatic windscreen wash/wipe, and automatic hazard warning light activation, while a safety sunroof, cruise control, rain sensing wipers, automatic headlight activation, and ECM interior rear view mirror are also available.
