Ssangyong’s turbocharged Tivoli 4x4 sends power where it’s needed for a safe, efficient drive

The Ssangyong Tivoli is designed as an affordable and practical small SUV – and it’s now available in the UK for the first time with the firm’s proven four-wheel-drive technology.

The Tivoli 4x4 combines the practicality and security of intelligent all-wheel-drive with the existing strengths of the spacious yet compact machine. To find out more, just watch this video.

The Tivoli 4x4 has an electronically managed all-wheel-drive system that can detect the road surface and conditions, sending power from the car’s 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine to where it’s needed the most.

In normal conditions the engine’s torque is delivered to the front wheels to maximise fuel efficiency and provide a dependable drive. When the conditions become tougher and the car detects front- and rear-wheel slippage, it apportions power intelligently to ensure a safe, dependable drive.

To further ensure the car can cope with all conditions it has an electronic stability programme, hydraulic brake assist, multi-link rear suspension and 300 newton metres of torque. Prices for the Tivoli 4x4 start from £17,100.
