SsangYong is expanding its 2016 Tivoli range in the UK by offering an all-new 1.6-litre Euro 6 diesel engine in the model range. The company had launched the Tivoli earlier this Summer in the UK with a petrol engine.
The new e-XDi160 diesel engine has been developed from the ground up and produces 115PS (113 hp) of power at 3,400 – 4,000 rpm and 300Nm of torque at 1,500 – 2,500rpm. The company informs that the engine has been designed for optimised performance and delivers superior NVH characteristics.
The new diesel engine employs a fifth generation E-VGT turbocharger to enhance power delivery in the crucial mid to low speed range. The engine will be offered with two transmission options- a 6-speed manual and an Aisin 6-speed automatic. The diesel engine offers fuel economy of 65.7 mpg (23.26 km/l) when paired to the manual transmission and 51.4 mpg (18.16 km/l) when paired to the automatic transmission. The 2-wheel drive manual transmission variant of the Tivoli diesel emits 113 g/km of CO2.
The diesel powered Tivoli is offered in three trim levels – SE, EX and ELX, while additional customisation is offered with My Tivoli programme. The EX trim sports features like dual zone climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels, 7-inch smart audio system, rear view camera, fog lamps and heated front seats.
The ELX trim adds features like diamond cut alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, automatic headlamps, tom tom navigation with 7-inch touch screen amongst others. It can also be opted with a Styling Pack and Red Leather Pack with My Tivoli programme.
Noteworthy saftey features include 7 airbags, 4-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS), hill start assist (HSA), active roll-over protection (ARP) and Electronic stability program (ESP) with hydraulic brake assist (HBA).
The prices for the petrol powered Tivoli start at £12,950 while the diesel powered range is priced from £14,200. The company informs the 4×4 version of the Tivoli will be introduced later this year.
