SsangYong Tivoli facelift launched internationally with Mahindra mStallion engine
SsangYong, the Korean carmaker owned by Mahindra has launched the facelifted 2020 SsangYong Tivoli SUV in international markets. The Indian-spec Mahindra XUV300 SUV has been derived from the Tivoli, but with changes made to it to duck under our sub-4-metre tax bracket.
The mid-cycle facelift for the SsangYong Tivoli SUV brings with it refreshed exterior styling, by way of sharper front and rear styling. The head and tail lamps have also been given a sleeker look. The facelifted Tivoli also comes with a redesigned dashboard. The stacked centre console of the earlier car, and as seen on the XUV300, has been replaced by a more contemporary layout. The touchscreen is larger as well at 8 inches while the instrument cluster is now a fully digital 10.25-inch unit. We could expect this revised dash layout to make its way to the XUV 300 as well, whenever that car is put through a mid-cycle refresh.
Mechanically, the facelifted Tivoli now also comes equipped with the 1.2-litre Mahindra mStallion turbo petrol engine that debuted at the Auto Expo. This motor puts out 128PS and 230 Nm. This motor will soon make its way to the Mahindra XUV 300 and will even be found in the next-gen Ford Ecosport. The Tivoli is also being offered with a 1.5-litre turbo petrol motor that makes 163PS and 280 Nm. There is also a 1.6-litre turbo diesel engine that puts out 136PS and 324 Nm.
