Small crossovers have become a major hit in recent years. That’s down to a range of factors including their 4x4-style looks and endless personalisation options – but the biggest factor is that they offer tremendous value for money.
For a similar price to a supermini, you can have a baby crossover that mixes style and space. And one of the most competitively priced cars in the class is the Ssangyong Tivoli. The South Korean machine is tremendous value to buy and run. Want to know more? Then watch this video.
Prices for the entry-level SE model Tivoli start at £12,950. For that you get a small SUV with air conditioning, seven airbags, an electronic stability programme, cruise control and smart steering.
If you’re in the market for a diesel car, the 1.6-litre Tivoli SE is available from £14,200, and features lower emissions (BIK tax is in the 20 per cent bracket). And if you want the security of all-wheel-drive, the new diesel-engined Tivoli 4x4 diesel is available from £17,199.
When it comes to running costs, the Tivoli is just as competitive. The 1.6-litre petrol unit has an official average 44.1mpg rating, and emits 149g/km, which means annual VED costs of £145.
Ssangyong also provides a five-year, limitless-mileage warranty that covers common items such as wheel bearings, suspension and steering joints, bushes and shock absorbers. Brake pads and clutch friction plates are also covered for a year or 12,000 miles.
You don’t have to pay for your Tivoli in one go, either. Ssangyong offers a range of pay-monthly Personal Contract Purchase Finance deals that start from £199 a month, with a deposit of just £199.99*. For that affordable price, and with those low running costs, you get everything you want in a small SUV: a roomy, rugged, robust and well-kitted crossover.
