When many were longing for the Mahindra S201, a model based on it, the SsangYong Tivoli 2018 facelift was recently spotted testing on Korean roads. Spy shots of the compact SUV was released by Auto Desire.
We can easily spot changes coming out of the front as well as the rear. However, the camouflage ceases us from learning more about them in details. It is a high chance the model gets a refreshed styling applied to the grille, tail light graphics, headlight, and bumpers.

Changes also come in the interior where car owners may enjoy new upholstery and trim. Also, car enthusiasts are looking to a touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which we don’t see in the existing model.
The revamped SsangYong Tivoli 2018 offers two options for the engine: One is the 1.6L naturally aspirated petrol powertrain which churns out 160 Nm and 128 PS, another a 1.6L turbocharged diesel unit which is good for 300 Nm and 115 PS. Because a 1.2L turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine is in process of building for the S201, it may come in the facelifted SsangYong Tivoli 2019 as well. If this happens, the powertrain will come to replace the 1.6L petrol unit and be responsible for an output of 142 PS.
Another facelift version, the SsangYong Tivoli Air, may be released sometime in 2019
The SsangYong Tivoli 2018 facelift is set to be on sale in the Korean market inside this year. The European launch is expected to be somewhere near the joint of 2018 and the new year while another facelift version, the SsangYong Tivoli Air, may be released sometime in 2019.
