SsangYong Tivoli Ultimate is the ultimate Tivoli

SsangYong has launched a limited-edition model of its Tivoli small SUV, called the Tivoli Ultimate.

The only engine option is a 1.6-litre petrol engine, but you can choose between a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

Based on the top-spec ELX model, the Ultimate gets leather-upholstered electric front seats that are also heated and ventilated (handy now that the weather has finally started to warm up). The steering wheel is also heated (also handy, since this mini-heatwave certainly won’t last more than a couple of days).

The ELX model is already comprehensively equipped for its price, and the Ultimate gets all the comfort, convenience and safety features that are standard on the ELX.

Visually, the Ultimate debuts a new design for the front bumper and LED foglights, that will make their way onto the rest of the range eventually. Similarly, a repositioned handbrake and minor switchgear changes on the inside will filter through to regular Tivoli models.

The manual-gearbox Ultimate is priced at £17,495 on-road, while the automatic version will set you back £18,745 on-road.
