What used Ssangyong Tivoli hatchback will I get for my budget?
The cheapest Tivoli starts at around £6000 for a 2015 1.6-litre petrol with an average to high mileage. Increase your budget to between £8000 and £10,000 and you’ll have your pick of 2017 1.6-litre diesel examples in mid-range EX specification that have covered an average mileage for the year. If you fancy something from 2018 and with the balance of its manufacturer’s warranty, a Tivoli with 10,000 miles or less on it can be found for between £11,000 and £13,000.
It’s worth remembering that if you buy a Tivoli registered after 1 April 2017, it will cost you £140 per year to tax, regardless of which engine you go for, because of changes in the road tax system.
Servicing your Tivoli won’t be quite as easy as it would be for one of its more mainstream rivals if you elect to stay within the dealer network. This is because there are still parts of the UK (such as Scotland and Wales) that don’t have many Ssangyong dealers in them. There’s a fair spread of authorised agents in England who can look after your car for routine maintenance or if anything goes wrong.
