2015 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: SsangYong Tivoli image

The SsangYong Tivoli sub-compact crossover has been officially presented to the public, in an European premiere, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

Originally shown at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit a couple of months ago, the brand new SsangYong Tivoli is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker officially pulling the wraps off its body in Geneva, during the automotive event. The model in question is a new sub-compact crossover, aimed towards the B-segment, which will go up against models such as the Nissan Juke, the Renault Captur, the Peugeot 2008, the Opel Mokka, the Chevrolet Trax, the Ford EcoSport and so on.

The vehicle has an appealing design with sharp lines and it has been based on the X100 platform, developed by the Mahindra owned company. Its looks seem to have been influenced by the XIV Air and XIV Adventure, shown back in 2014, in Paris, packing an aggressive front bumper, LED daytime running lights integrated into the headlights, black plastic wheel arches and more. The cabin has an infotainment system, a dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, seven airbags and others. The engine lineup is actually made out of a single unit, a 126 HP (93 kW) and 157 Nm (116 lb-ft) of torque 1.6 liter e-XGi 160 petrol, which can be connected to either a manual or an automatic transmission. The Tivoli will be a global vehicle which will be offered for sale from this May.
