And the smart Tivoli is also the first SsangYong to be nominated for World Car of The Year 2016 which will be announced in March.

“Tivoli is being praised for its style, safety and equipment, interior space and finish, and with the introduction of diesel we can now offer greater power, increased economy and a 1.5-tonne towing capability, while also underlining the SsangYong proposition of value for money, backed by a warranty no one else can match.”
