Ssangyong has launched the option of four-wheel-drive to its Tivoli model, accompanied by its recently released 1.6-litre ultra-efficient diesel engine.

The new engine produces just 123g/km CO2 as a four-wheel-drive, which is incredibly low for the type of model. Two transmissions are also offered, a six-speed manual and also a six-speed automatic.

On a combined cycle, the Tivoli 4x4 can achieve a remarkable 60.1mpg with the manual gearbox. With the automatic, this figure drops to 47.9mpg.

The car is helped by an advanced all-wheel drive torque system, which can detect the road surface that the car is travelling on and distribute power to the wheels which have the most grip.

In normal driving, this means that all of the power is sent to the front wheels in order to get the best economy. However, on more difficult surfaces the power can be distributed between all four wheels. A lock mode, which distributes the power equally in order to get the most traction, can be used at under 25mph.

The base model, the Tivoli EX 4x4, features cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, leather interior and 18-inch alloy wheels. It also incorporates a seven inch touch screen and a rear view camera.

The top-of-the-range Tivoli ELX 4x4 adds to this with Diamond cut alloy wheels, keyless entry, front and rear parking sensors and a full TomTom navigation system.

Prices for the Tivoli 4x4 start at £17,100 for the EX diesel with a manual gearbox, climbing to £19,500 for the ELX automatic. All models come with a 5-year limitless mileage warranty.
