Even as India, the home of SsangYong’s parent company Mahindra, is waiting for the Tivoli compact crossover, neighbouring Nepal has already received it. The South Korean automaker has appointed IMS Motors as its official distributor for Nepal and launched 5 SUV models there including the SsangYong Tivoli.
The smallest SUV in the automaker’s lineup is priced at NPR 5,375,000 (around INR 33.66 lakhs), thanks to the country’s high tax structure. The Tivoli for the Nepalese market will be sourced from South Korea.
The Tivoli which was showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo earlier this year subscribes the brand’s latest design philosophy. In the global area, the compact crossover locks horns with the likes of Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks, Honda HR-V, etc.
The Tivoli is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol motor is a 1.6-litre unit which is capable of 126 PS and 160 Nm of torque. The diesel mill also displaces 1.6-litre, and is good for 115 PS and 300 Nm of torque. Both manual and automatic transmissions are on offer. Higher variants are equipped with a 4×4 system.
The SsangYong Tivoli is also available in a longer version under the XLV nameplate. The SsangYong XLV offers a protruded rear overhang, redesigned rear fascia and significantly larger boot space. IMS Motors has also launched the Korando, Rexton, Kryon and Actyon models in Nepal.
