SsangYong Tivoli

(2015 - present)

The SsangYong Tivoli is a small SUV/crossover, available in two sizes: the regular Tivoli and the longer Tivoli XLV. The shorter model was launched in 2015, with the XLV added a year later.

The Tivoli range has received mixed scores from the UK motoring media, ranging from poor to above average. A general consensus is that the bigger XLV model offers extra practicality but that lengthening the original shape makes it look rather more awkward.

The SsangYong Tivoli has received particular praise for its low price and generous standard equipment levels, but has been criticised for a lack of refinement, below-average driving experience and relatively poor child safety rating.
