What is it?
Ssangyong is on the verge of a big new model splurge over the next three years, and its growing reputation has been helped in no small part by the Ssangyong Tivoli.
It's a small SUV that offers a value-focused package to give pricier rivals a run for their money. It's been very lightly updated for 2017, getting some new safety equipment, which is standard on all but entry-level models, to boost its appeal. This includes lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning and autonomatic emergency braking (AEB), and Ssangyong reckons cars equipped with it will get a four-star Euro NCAP rating, up from the current three-stars.
That's all well and good: four stars is par for the course in this market, and it’s another plus for a car that has all of its rivals beaten on price (if not much else). But does it do enough to make it a significantly more tempting package?
