In addition, SsangYong is providing a £500 ‘congratulations on passing your test’ voucher to those who have learnt to drive and pass their test in a Tivoli, redeemable either as a cash discount or a deposit contribution when buying a new car.Available on all Tivoli 1.6 petrol and diesel models and worth £500 to officially recognised driving schools, the programme includes the free fitment of dual control pedals, and a £100 contribution towards the cost of a roof mounted learner A board and ‘L plate’ magnetic graphic panels.
A number of SsangYong dealers will also be established as expert driving school centres where a Tivoli with dual controls can be demonstrated.
The contemporary SsangYong Tivoli B-segment SUV is available with 1.6 litre petrol or diesel power, manual and automatic transmission, two-wheel drive or 4×4.
“We know that many driving instructors need a car that’s easy for their pupils to learn on, while also doubling as their own personal transport,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK. “Highly responsive and light to drive, the Tivoli meets both these demands, and also comes with a market leading 5 year limitless mileage warranty to give driving school owners complete peace of mind.”

5 year limitless mileage warranty
All models in the SsangYong range are covered by a best-in-class 5 year limitless mileage warranty. Designed to be totally transparent and give customers complete peace of mind, ‘limitless’ means just that: not a maximum mileage condition that some brands impose in their small print. All the major mechanical components are covered including the engine and drivetrain, wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system. Wearable components such as clutch friction plates and brake pads which could have their life reduced by poor driving are covered for one year or 12,500 miles, and the battery and paintwork for three years.
Made in Korea
The SsangYong Tivoli is manufactured in South Korea by SsangYong Motor, which is 73 per cent owned by the Indian engineering conglomerate Mahindra & Mahindra, and imported into the UK by SsangYong Motor UK. Established in 1954, SsangYong is Korea’s oldest vehicle manufacturer and only 4×4 and SUV specialist producer. There are currently some 60 SsangYong dealers covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with new locations being added to the network all the time.
