Vehicle will be updated before its Australian debut next year
The updated Ssangyong Tivoli has been spied ahead of its debut some time in 2019.
There’s a lot of cladding at the front of the vehicle, but we can definitely say the updated car will have new headlight graphics and a refashioned bumper with round fog lights.
Beyond that it seems there will be a revised grille, probably a redesigned bonnet and maybe a reworked set of front quarter panels.
At the rear, the bumper design has been made a little more conventional with a central diffuser-like section instead of two separate black plastic components framing the central fog light.
We expect this will be accompanied by revised tail-light graphics.
Under the bonnet, the Tivoli is expected to employ a new turbocharged 1.2-litre engine with around 120kW of power. This new motor could consign the current car’s 96kW 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated unit to history’s dustbin.
Although Ssangyong has recently begun selling cars in Australia again, this time as a factory-backed operation, the Tivoli didn’t make the cut, presumably because the facelifted model is just around the corner.
