Ssangyong Tivoli India Launch by Q2, 2017


Mahindra & Mahindra owned Korean car maker, Ssangyong, is readying the Tivoli small SUV for the India market. This will be their second product launch in India, the first one being the bigger Rexton SUV. The Tivoli will fall in the sub-15 lac price bracket and will rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster and the Maruti S-Cross. Showcased in its concept form at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the debut was followed by a launch in January 2015 in South Korea. Read on to know more about the Ssangyong Tivoli India launch, price, specifications, features and other details.

Ssangyong Tivoli India Launch Date

The small SUV was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo in February. The Tivoli was recently caught testing in Ahmedabad. This isn’t the first time that a camouflaged test mules of the Tivoli have been spotted. Although Mahindra put the Tivoli on display at the Auto Expo, no details regarding Ssangyong Tivoli India Launch details were provided. We expect the Tivoli to arrive in showrooms in the second quarter of next year.

Ssangyong Tivoli Price in India

In international markets, the Ssangyong Tivoli is positioned as a premium offering in the small SUV segment retailing for around INR 13-15 lacs. Keeping in mind the fact that the Creta’s and the Duster’s top-spec trims retail for around INR 13 -14 lacs, such pricing may not go down well with the India customers. Prices of the Ssangyong Tivoli are expected to start at around INR 12 lacs for the base petrol.
