Powered by a 1.6 litre Euro 6 petrol engine, this limited edition builds on the popular B-segment SUV and is matched with the option of a 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed Aisin automatic.
The Ultimate features an electrically operated and ventilated driver’s seat, heated steering wheel, and facelift enhancements to the front including LED foglamps. Further differences over the standard car include a repositioned handbrake and minor changes to the switchgear.
Now available to order through SsangYong dealers, the Tivoli Ultimate costs £17,495 or £18,745 with automatic transmission.
The SsangYong Tivoli – the brand’s first B-segment SUV offers stylish good looks and class-leading levels of equipment and interior space. Based on the top of the range ELX, the Ultimate is one of the safest cars in its class and comes with state-of-the-art safety features such as Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, High Beam Assistance, and Traffic Sign Recognition. It also includes seven airbags – front, side and curtain airbags plus a driver’s knee airbag.
Offering real value-for-money, the Ultimate is comprehensively equipped with leather upholstery, keyless starting, parking sensors and reversing camera, cruise control, electric windows, smart steering, a 7” touch screen with RDS radio, iPod & Bluetooth connectivity, TomTom navigation, diamond cut alloy wheels and dual-zone air conditioning.
All models in the SsangYong range are covered by a best-in-class 5-year limitless mileage warranty. Designed to be totally transparent and give customers complete peace of mind, ‘limitless’ means just that: not a maximum mileage condition that some brands impose in their small print. All the major mechanical components are covered including wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system. Wearable components such as clutch discs and brake friction materials which could have their life reduced by poor driving are covered for one year or 12,500 miles, and the battery and paintwork for three years.
SsangYong cars are manufactured in South Korea by SsangYong Motor, which is 73 per cent owned by the Indian engineering conglomerate Mahindra & Mahindra, and imported into the UK by SsangYong Motor UK. Established in 1954, SsangYong is Korea’s oldest vehicle manufacturer and only 4×4 and SUV specialist producer. There are currently some 65 SsangYong dealers covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with new locations being added to the network all the time.
