SsangYong Tivoli facelift to hit South Korean market in June
The mid-generational refresh of the SsangYong Tivoli SUV will arrive in the showrooms across South Korea in early June 2019. The update brings along changes in exterior, interior, and engines.
The car will now ship with two engine options of the fourth-gen Korando: the 1.5-liter turbo gas engine with an unspecified performance rating, and a 1.6-liter diesel rated at 136 hp (101 kW). Both will be available with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The 4WD system will likely stay in the series, too.
Now on to the exterior differences. The Tivoli sports a brand-new front, complete with a radiator grille, bumper, and lighting. The rear bumper and the trunk lid are also considerably different.
The interior houses a 10.25-inch digital dash, an up-to-date infotainment system with a 9-inch display, and climate control. Air blowers are now located in the upper part of the dashboard.
SsangYong will also be facelifting the long-wheelbase XLV version of the Tivoli. No details are available right now, but there is little doubt that the car will celebrate its premiere in a few months.
Prices for the most basic trim begin at 16,680,000 KRW (approx. 14,000 USD).
