The SsangYong Tivoli 1.6 litre SE has been revealed as the cheapest diesel SUV to run, according to analysis by automotive data experts cap hpi.
SsangYong Tivoli SE
The study looked at the total cost of ownership (TCO) to reveal cars with the lowest motoring costs over the first three years. It took in to account all servicing, fuel and other motoring costs, and the Tivoli SE came top as the best performing diesel SUV, with a cost of £11,583.50 (£321.76 per month).
Commented Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK: “The SsangYong Tivoli is one of the best-value cars you can buy, and this endorsement of the SE diesel being the best performing diesel SUV from such a respected organisation as cap hpi, firmly underlines that.”
The SsangYong Tivoli is also packed with standard features you have to pay extra for on more expensive cars. Comprehensively equipped, it comes with cruise control, electric windows, smart steering, an RDS/Bluetooth radio, seven airbags, alloy wheels and air conditioning.

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 wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system. Wearable components such as clutch discs and brake friction materials 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
SsangYong cars are 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 4x4 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.
