What alternatives should I consider to a used Ssangyong Tivoli hatchback?

The Ssangyong Tivoli generally undercuts its rivals, but often this is only by about £1000. When you consider the additional expense of running some versions of the Tivoli over its alternatives, that saving will be eaten into.

It might seem a little bit smaller than the Tivoli, but the Renault Captur makes clever use of the space it has thanks to its sliding rear seats. Most models sit in low tax bands, making it cheap to run.

Small SUVs aren’t usually that much fun to drive, but the Suzuki Vitara is the exception, particularly when it comes equipped with the nippy turbocharged 1.4-litre Boosterjet engine. Like the Tivoli, you can have four-wheel drive to assist you in slippery conditions.

If you like the size of the Tivoli, try a Kia Soul, because it’s equally spacious on the inside. The dashboard is tastefully finished with higher-quality materials and it feels a bit nicer to spend time in.
