After teasing the styling sketches and safety features, SsangYong Tivoli has been fully revealed officially. The SsangYong Tivoli will be the most affordable product from the Mahindra-owned automaker and will rival the likes of Nissan Juke and Renault Captur.

SsangYong Tivoli is scheduled to be launched in Korea in January and globally during the 2nd quarter of 2015.
While the exterior of the Tivoli exude modern and muscular profile, the interior will reflect design elements that are smart and functional. SsangYong has earlier announced the safety features of the Tivoli, which comes with a strong body structure, 7 airbags and advanced seat belt system.

Tivoli also comes with 7 airbags including driver and front passenger airbag, driver’s knee airbag, two curtain airbags and two side airbags. The advanced seat belt system with dual presentioner automatically tightens the belt to hold passengers and prevents injuries from accidents.Tivoli offers a very competitive luggage size of 423 litres that can be further extended by fully folding the 2nd row.
