Ssangyong is carrying on the tests of the upcoming Tivoli in India. The SUV was again caught testing in a disguised avatar in Chennai recently.

The camouflaged test mule looks exactly the same as the Tivoli sold in the international market. The Tivoli features LED DRLs, 16- to 18-inch alloy wheels and a sunroof. It would be interesting to see if the Indian-spec Tivoli also gets features from the global model. These include a ventilated driver’s seat, heated second row seats, heated steering wheel and a fully automatic dual air-conditioning system with memory function. The latter remembers the preferred air volume, air direction, and temperature in three modes. Then there is also a tyre pressure monitoring system, a multi-function ESP and disc brakes on all four wheels.

The SsangYong Tivoli is globally offered in two powertrain options - a 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel engine. The former produces 128bhp of power and 160Nm of torque, while the latter churns out 115bhp of power and 300Nm of torque. On the transmission front, there is a six-speed manual transmission as standard, while a six speed automatic transmission is also available as an option. Mahindra hasn't confirmed if the India-spec model will be offered with a 4WD system or not.

SsangYong launched the Tivoli in Korea last year and first showcased it at the 2016 Auto Expo in February this year. Whenever it comes to the Indian market, it will give company to the Rexton in the carmaker’s line-up. The Tivoli will be promoted as an urban SUV to target a young audience in India basically looking for a stylish SUV. We are expecting the carmaker to price the car aggressively to make it compete with the Hyundai Creta and the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross.
