Ssangyong tries to consolidate its presence in the UK market and prepares itself for a cold winter with a special package. The Korean manufacturer is introducing a 4×4 winter upgrade offer on its 1.6 litre turbo diesel Tivoli SUV and extended bodied Tivoli XLV models. The offer applies to current EX and ELX models, manual and automatic.

The Tivoli EX 4×4 features cruise control, smart steering (normal, comfort and sport modes), an RDS/Bluetooth radio and seven airbags, grey or beige leather upholstery, 18 inch alloy Spiral wheels, dual zone climate control, 7 inch 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 4×4 adds the choice of manual and automatic transmission, and features Diamond cut alloy wheels, a new instrument cluster, keyless starting, front & rear parking sensors, privacy glass, rear spoiler, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, full TomTom navigation system with 7 inch touch screen, rear view camera, and the option of the styling pack and red leather pack with My Tivoli.

Under normal driving conditions, 100 per cent of the engine’s torque is delivered to the front wheels so that the car runs with optimised fuel efficiency.  On icy or slippery roads or when driving on wet off-road conditions, power is distributed to both the front and rear wheels. A lock mode distributes power equally between the front and rear wheels at speeds below 25mph to optimise traction. The Tivoli 4×4 also features multi-link rear suspension.

There is a 1.6 litre turbo diesel engine with a 6 speed manual or Aisin automatic, and prices start from just £16,250.
