SsangYong’s Tivoli is turning heads in all the right directions. The Korean-based motor company known to specialise in 4x4s has managed to muscle itself into the trendier side of the motor market. SsangYong’s Tivoli has made waves with its contemporary small CUV design, combining luxury, style and performance at a price as comfortable as its ride.

The automaker had baptised their car after the Italian town Tivoli, but it’s also ‘i lov it’ spelled backwards. That’s a pretty accurate statement, because you’ll end up loving it at the end of the day.

The Tivoli is a bold step in the right direction. Immediately, its slick exterior design promises both elegance and practicality. The clean front end of the car features on it LED driving lights which incorporate a modern feel, these front features blend in perfectly to a sculpted profile and then into a purposeful rear quarter, which is both home to a spare wheel and successfully provides its owner with a considerable luggage space of 423 litres. The sharp angles, bulky shapes and grinning front fascia, make this car’s exterior feel tough and planted to the ground.

A bold step in the right direction

The interior room in the Tivoli is among the best in its class. Five adults can fit inside the car, with enough legroom and headroom to comfortably enjoy long drives. 

Engineers at SsangYong made sure that all necessary information is easily displayed up front by the driver. A large touch display screen is complemented by modern and clear dials, a tyre pressure monitoring system, climate control memory functions and many of the usual good stuff incorporating both form and function to the car. The seating is both firm and comfortable, making the entire interior quality of the car more than a match for SsangYong’s European and Japanese rivals.

A big consideration towards safety was taken with the design. The Tivoli comes equipped with seven airbags as well as having 40 per cent of the body use advanced, high-strength steel. SsangYong has stated that the Tivoli achieved the highest rating possible for AE-MDB side-impact collision tests.
