The SsangYong Tivoli Gas Returns

Sta. Rosa, Laguna - SsangYong Philippines reinvigorates the sub-compact crossover market with the return of the Tivoli Gas Sport.

Slotting in between the range-topping Tivoli 1.6-liter Diesel Premium and the 1.6-liter Diesel Sport in specifications and features, the new gasoline engine offering in the SsangYong Tivoli lineup stands out to deliver the smooth and refined driving experience that car buyers and crossover shoppers are very familiar with.

Now sporting a fresh, eye-catching design, the SsangYong Tivoli Gas Sport boasts a confident stance that undoubtedly deserves a second look. SsangYong Philippines’ latest offering is poised to make Tivoli customers feel the fun yet again as it reintroduces  the peppy 1.6-liter e-XDGi160 gasoline engine that Tivoli owners have come to love since the South Korean SUV-specialist brand made its comeback in 2016. 

Crossover buyers will enjoy a clear advantage in space and road presence over other market offerings with the Tivoli Gas Sport’s class-leading dimensions. This same space benefit, which all Tivoli variants share, will give its owners more cargo and people-carrying room for their daily needs.

“The new SsangYong Tivoli lineup is our answer to the growing needs of many car buyers for reasonably priced, feature-rich alternatives in the growing subcompact crossover space,” says Japheth Castillo, president of SsangYong Philippines. “Though we pride ourselves with our extensive diesel-engine crossover and SUV lineup, we believe there is still a large demand for gasoline-engined vehicles, especially when they come with eye-catching design aesthetics like the Tivoli Gas Sport.” Castillo adds, “With this latest Tivoli offering, we are confident that crossover shoppers will see the true value and benefits that the SsangYong lineup has to offer.”

The latest SsangYong Tivoli Gas Sport features one of the longest wheelbase measurements in its class at 2,600mm. This affords more legroom and cargo space for small families ensuring their comfort over long journeys.

Standing tall with its 167mm ground clearance, Tivoli owners will enjoy the extra breathing room which will allow them to tackle a greater variety of road surfaces. Sporting 18-inch wheels similar to the top-of-the-line Tivoli Diesel Premium, the newest Tivoli variant will enjoy the same dynamic profile of its higher-end sibling.

Inside, airy black fabric seats make up the living space of the Tivoli Gas Sport as it shares the same 60/40 folding seat option as the rest of the lineup. A leather steering wheel with audio and trip controls, is likewise shared throughout the Tivoli range. While a color-adjustable instrument cluster, similar to the Tivoli Diesel Sport, provides essential information the driver needs.

An 8-inch touchscreen LCD Smart Audio, Bluetooth-equipped infotainment system with Carplay and Android Auto connectivity entertains occupants. This same system found in the top-spec Tivoli Diesel Premium keeps the driver and passengers connected to the outside world as it seamlessly makes use of the mobile phone’s navigation, call, messaging, and music streaming functions throughout every drive.

The Tivoli Gas Sport’s potent 1.6-liter e-XDGi160 gasoline motor, rated at 128hp and outputting a generous 160Nm of torque, is mated to a responsive 6-speed automatic transmission. This gives the new variant its spritely driving dynamic which many early Tivoli owners have come to enjoy.

It also comes standard with Dual Airbags, ABS, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist, a burglar alarm and a rear view camera. Along with SsangYong Philippines’   3-Year FREE PMS and 5-Year Vehicle Warranty, the Tivoli Gas Sport makes for a compelling choice in the compact crossover market today especially when customers consider its price.

With its special Introductory offering of Php 970,000, which is Php 150,000 less than its actual SRP of Php 1,120,000, the SsangYong Tivoli Gas Sport is set to rank high on crossover buyers’ shopping list as it rolls out starting this November at all SsangYong Philippines dealerships nationwide.
