6 CVT petrol, the Nissan returns 44

SsangYong Tivoli automatic 2015 review

SsangYong has thrown all it has at the Tivoli and come up with a characterful and fashionable product like no other SsangYong we’ve ever seen. Don’t be put off by the badge cheap Canada Goose the Tivoli is a match for the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur in terms of quality and is far more keenly priced and better equipped. We predict the diesel engine and manual gearbox will be a better match than the petrol auto, and in that spec it could well earn another star.The new SsangYong canada goose coats on sale Tivoli is yet another entrant into the supermini SUV, but marks an important milstone for the Korean manufacturer that has always lived in the shadow of Hyundai and Kia. Whereas SsangYong’s previous efforts have lacked the quality, design and technology to make an impact over here, the Tivoli is a serious contender in all those areas and majors on value for money, too.Unlike SsangYong’s current line up of four wheel drive workhorses, the Tivoli is tailored to what modern customers are asking for so it puts fashion above four by four ability. We were given the keys to a Korean spec, left hand drive car in the UK months before it arrives in showrooms to see if the Tivoli can really shake up the compact crossover segment.Best crossovers to buy nowIt certainly has the looks to take on the class’s best. The Tivoli flies in the face of SsangYong’s weirdly styled models like the old Rodius, and head in a far more contemporary direction. Marginally longer, shorter and lower Canada Goose Outlet than a Nissan Juke, the Tivoli is a smart looking thing. In fact, its shapely wheel arches are www.scrubsuniforms.ca similar to the Juke’s, while the bluff front end resembles the Kia Soul. A MINI like floating roof (which can be ordered in contrasting black or white for an extra 400) completes the cohesive mix of European, Korean and Japanese styling themes.Image 2 of 11But it’s on the inside where the Tivoli Canada Goose Coats On Sale marks a massive step change for SsangYong. Gone are canada goose clearance the acres of flimsy plastics finished Canada Goose Online in depressing black and in comes an interior that bursts with character, colour and Canada Goose Jackets substance. The dashboard is made of decent quality plastics twinned with silver and shiny black plastic inserts, while a seven inch touchscreen on mid spec EX and top spec ELX models brings a canadian goose jacket welcome dose of modernity. A chunky multi function steering wheel and soft leather seats (amazingly available as standard on mid and top spec Tivolis) give a touch of luxury. There are still smatterings of shiny, scratchy plastics lower down, but the overall quality is a match for a Juke or a Renault Captur.It’s roomy, too. There’s plenty of space up front while three passengers can sit comfortably in the canada goose uk shop back thanks canada goose a floor that’s almost flat. There’s loads of knee room for six footers and the boxy roofline results in plenty of headroom. buy canada goose jacket Open the tailgate and Canada Goose sale there’s canada goose store a 423 litre boot which puts the Tivoli up with the class’s best comfortably beating the Juke’s 354 litre capacity and just 32 litres down on the Captur’s 455.SsangYong has kept things simple by offering just two Canada Goose Outlet engine options a 126bhp 1.6 litre petrol and a 1.6 litre diesel with 113bhp along with two or four wheel drive and six speed manual and automatic transmissions. We drove the petrol auto and it’s here where the Tivoli’s strong case falters a little. Although refined at idle at low canada goose uk outlet speeds, the petrol engine sounds a bit thrashy at over 4,000rpm, but performance is perfectly adequate.With 126bhp, 0 62mph uk canada goose takes exactly 11 seconds and while that’s half a second quicker uk canada goose outlet than a Juke 1.6 CVT petrol, the Nissan returns 44.8mpg compared to the Korean car’s 39.2. Higher emissions also mean you’ll Canada Goose online be paying more road tax with the Tivoli’s canada goose black friday sale 167g/km figure canada goose coats putting it into the 205 a year bracket the Nissan’s slots in at 145. The diesel canada goose factory sale fares better with emissions of 113g/km in the two wheel drive manual model, but it costs 1,250 more than the petrol in the equivalent spec.Image 10 of 11On the move the six speed box switches between gears smoothly and is the same unit MINI uses it’s far more refined than the Juke’s CVT, but it takes its time to change ratios. On our short test route, the Tivoli impressed there’s a rigidity to it that is similar to cars costing far more, and the steering is accurate enough. A 'Flex’ system offers different levels of steering assistance but like a lot of other Korean cars, it’s unnecessary just leave it in 'Normal’ would be our advice.But it’s how much buy canada goose jacket cheap SsangYong is charging for its new B SUV that gives the Tivoli a big advantage over its competitors. Prices kick off at just under 13,000 with our top Canada Goose Parka spec ELX coming it at 17,000 exactly, and with fully packed equipment list consisting of heated leather seats, 18 inch alloys, dual zone climate control, sat nav and a reversing camera, it makes the Vauxhall Mokka and Mazda CX 3 seem very pricy.SsangYong aims to sell cheap canada goose uk 1,200 Tivolis this year and 3,500 in 2016 and on based on first impressions those numbers seem easily achievable. It’s the right car at the right time for SsangYong, and proves this up and coming manufacturer is about to turn a corner.
