SsangYong Motor on June 4 launched the upgraded Tivoli SUV in the domestic market as it seeks to further boost sales.
The face-lifted Tivoli comes with a 1.5-liter gasoline turbo or a 1.6-liter diesel engine. The SUV is equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, the company said in a statement.
The gasoline-powered Tivoli sells for between 17 million won ($14,000) and 22 million won, while its diesel version is priced at 21 million won-25 million won, it said.
The SUV-focused carmaker said it has yet to decide on the timeframe for its overseas launches. Other SUV models are the flagship G4 Rexton, Tivoli, Korando C and Korando Turismo.
SsangYong Motor sold 59,902 vehicles in the first five months of the year, up 9.8 percent from 54,532 units a year earlier, helped by strong exports.
