This time around though the vehicle has only been showcased, it is likely that the company may soon plan on introducing the vehicle soon in the Indian market. The company claims to have used 70 percent of high tensile strength steel for the development of this impressive machine that is not just lighter in weight but also offers much rigidity.

Under the hood, the SsangYong Tivoli is expected to be offered in petrol and diesel engine options.

As for safety, it may be offered with ESP, ABS, seven airbags and Tyre Pressure Monitoring system (TPMS). It is also anticipated that the Tivoli may be offered with an AISIN single clutch automatic transmission apart from the standard 6-speed manual transmission.
