The Ssangyong Tivoli is decent for the money, but massively outclassed in terms of space, efficiency and comfort by pricier small SUVs, including the Ford Puma, Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Roc. The Dacia Duster also outclasses it in several ways, while being more efficient to run and cheaper to buy outright.
The trimSee full equipment
Whilst it keeps the cost down, the Ssangyong Tivoli’s base EX trim will leave you wanting when it comes to standard equipment, giving you little more than air conditioning, electric windows and a small LCD screen for the DAB radio. Ssangyong haven’t even included height adjustment for the driver’s seat or a load bay cover for the boot. We’d advise going for at least the Ventura trim level.

Despite being turbocharged, the Tivoli’s entry-level 1.2l petrol engine struggles to compete with the Ford Puma and other rivals when it comes to efficiency and performance. Although the turbo does help to get the Tivoli up to speed, underwhelming performance at low revs can get tiresome.
