Ssang Yong Tívoli: a surprising interior
The Tivoli measures 4.20 meters and offers a sporty image, although it is perhaps more interesting the result of its interior, since it has a great habitability, which offers its occupants a generous space in the front seats, without affecting the rear, with seats that have a good inclination to deal with long trips with comfort.
The trunk It has a capacity of 423 liters and an area of more than one meter in width and a maximum width of more than 1.3 meters. To modulate the cargo space, the backs of the rear seats fold down completely, in proportions 40/60 and allows to reach up to 1,115 liters.

Gasoline and diesel

The second, the turbo-diesel e-XDi160 and 115 HP, with a manual version 4x2, which consumes 4.3 liters per 100 kilometers.
In addition, the Tivoli can be chosen with 2WD or 4WD traction associated to the diesel engine with both manual and automatic transmission.
The system of 4x4 drive is electronically controlled and automatically split the torque between the two axes. The version with 4-wheel drive has a differential lock below 40 km / h which, together with a ground clearance of 167 mm, ensures good behavior of the off-road Tívoli and sliding surfaces.
For the savers that make many kilometers there is a Bifuel petrol and LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) version, with a range of up to 1,200 kilometers and the advantages of a lower price on fuel and lower emissions pollutants
