THE pick-up market has seen substantial levels of growth over the last year with many models launched and many more still to come.SsangYong wants a slice of the profitable and growing pick-up market and the result is a beefed-up version of the Korando Sports.Now called the Musso, the name actually dates back to the large Daewoo-based SUV that the Korean company sold between 1993 and 2005.On top of its history, SsangYong believes this badge fits this reworked pick-up, as it means...

KOREAN brand SsangYong is planning to pull off a master-stroke - courtesy of a new large SUV model.Called the LIV-2, the newcomer was revealed by company chief Johng-sik Choi at the Paris Motor Show.The name actually stands for Limitless Interface Vehicle and is the next iteration from the LIV-1 concept exhibited at the Seoul Motor Show in 2013.It will be powered by either SsangYong's own 2.2 litre diesel engine or its newly-developed petrol 2.0 litre GDi turbo.The interior has been...

AS far as full-blown SUVs go they don't come much more versatile and rugged - or offer such great value-for-money - than the seven-seater SsangYong Rexton.With its "full-blown" all-wheel-drive capability - including low ratio gearbox - and built on the tried-and-tested steel ladder chassis principle, it offers a whopping three-tonne-plus towing capacity, making it not only a serious off-roader in its own right, but an excellent tow-car, complete with a raft of goodies and creature...

THE Tivoli has become a huge success for SsangYong in Britain and that is a result of a family-friendly formula which makes the car exceptional value for money.Now the Tivoli is stretching out with the introduction of a longer model which is even more practical.The Tivoli XLV possesses a huge boot that's almost twice as big as that of the likes of a Nissan Qashqai and it turns the Korean crossover into a super-size load lugger.With a capacity of 720 litres it can carry four full-size...

IF you've ever liked a car but cursed the size of the boot there is now a potential holiday luggage saviour in the smartly chunky shape of the new SsangYong Tivoli XLV.The Korean car maker has taken the existing Tivoli compact SUV - launched here to some praise last year - and added XLV to the name and several centimetres to the rear of the car.The extra stretch - all 23.8cms (or just over nine inches) of it - is devoted to padding out the boot space, from a reasonable 423 litres to...

KOREAN car maker SsangYong has added an LE version to the line-up of its latest Korando crossover.It is powered by a new powertrain featuring a 2.2-litre diesel Euro 6 engine and comes with two-wheel drive with either a six-speed manual or an Aisin six-speed automatic transmission.The newly developed e-XDi220 diesel engine has maximum power of 178bhp and maximum torque of 400Nm are delivered from a low of 1,400rpm and maintained through a wide range up to 2,800rpm which SsangYong say...

HAVING spent a pleasant half-an-hour sampling the many toys SsangYong gives you to play with on the Korando the thought crossed my mind that it wasn't going to be cheap to buy.So it was with some surprise that I discovered the SE model's on-the-road price is a shade under £16,000 - excellent for a compact SUV crossover loaded to the gills with kit.The first thing you notice - apart from the neat exterior with stainless steel front door kick plates, black-mesh grille, stylish...

SOUTH Korean car maker SsangYong is best known for producing affordable SUVs and rugged off-road motors with go-anywhere attributes, many of them 4x4s.But last year the brand broke into the compact SUV market with the Tivoli - a value for money all-rounder which has proved something of a hit.Already the Tivoli has become the company's most successful product with sales topping 64,000 around the world.Now SsangYong has gone a step further by launching a stretched model, the Tivoli XLV...

SSANGYONG might not be as well-known in this country as its Korean stablemates Kia and Hyundai but its 4x4s and crossovers have been around here for many a year.There was a three door 4x4 called Korando in the late 90s and the company reused the name in 2011 for a new crossover SUV competing with the likes of the Nissan Qashqai.It has just been revamped but for this assessment, I'll deal with the model built from 2011 to 2014.It's a good looking five seater and the engine option is...

A STRETCHED version of the SsangYong Tivoli will have its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month taking the Korean car maker into the compact SUV market.With either two or four-wheel-drive the Tivoli XLV is almost 10 inches longer than the standard model and can carry almost twice as much cargo.As a rival to the likes of the MINI Countryman, the Suzuki S-Cross and the pumped-up Fiat 500 L and X derivatives, the Tivoli XLV has 720 litres of boot space making it one of the...

IT is rare to be able to try out a proper four wheel drive SUV on and off-road on the same day.I always try and get to my local off-road centre to put them through their paces but don't always manage it.However, I did with the new SsangYong Korando and was very impressed with its wide range of positive attributes.It is an SUV about the same size as the Nissan Qashqai, or the Land Rover Discovery Sport with good looking lines and decent interior space for four or five.The model I drove...

COMPACT crossover the SsangYong Tivoli is now available through the Motability Scheme.It means disabled motorists can lease a new Tivoli using their higher rate mobility allowance.The Tivoli has received rave reviews since hitting UK streets earlier this year and represents serious value for money motoring with prices from £12,950 - and from £99 advance payment for Motability Scheme customers.There are three trim levels - SE, EX, ELX - and the petrol cars are powered by a 1.6-litre...

STEP inside and it's hard to think of the new SsangYong Korando as a budget buy.Rich leather adorns the seating (those in the front are even heated), a sparkling seven-inch touch screen with sat nav dominates the centre of the dash and the steering wheel is sprinkled with buttons and controls in an appropriately contemporary fashion.This is the latest Korando ELX with automatic transmission and four wheel drive and a price tag of £22,495, but the range kicks off at a fiver under...

A SMATTERING of Spanish would have come in handy in deepest Bedfordshire as we tried to tell the SsangYong's sat nav to take us back to base.Someone had set the system for the land of paella and siestas and instructions came out of the Tivoli's dashboard with a softly spoken southern inflection, which sounded lovely but meant precious little.But the destination was eventually plumbed into the TomTom and away we went - in a car that was proving a bit of a surprise.Taking us on the...

SSANGYONG is moving its Tivoli compact crossover to the sharp end of the market with the introduction of a 4x4 range topper.Using the all-wheel-drive set up from the Korean brand's slightly larger Korando SUV, the latest Tivoli is surprisingly capable.To show its mettle we drove the Tivoli 4x4 around one of the toughest off-road courses in Britain at the Millbrook Proving Centre in Bedfordshire where it took muddy tracks, some fairly steep gradients and even a bit of wading all in its...

SSANGYONG cars seem to have come and gone in the UK in recent years, rather like the automotive equivalent of a pop-up shop or restaurant that's there one minute and gone the next.Like many Korean car-makers their models have always had a reputation of being cheap and cheerful but all that looks set to change.Just as Korean firms like Kia and Hyundai have made a determined assault on the European mainstream SsangYong looks set to follow suit.With the exception of the downright...

KOREAN brand SsangYong is stepping up its assault on the UK new car market with a further five new dealers joining the franchise.The company says new appointments are currently running at around one a month and the new dealerships are Burrells Motor Group of Doncaster, Driven Car Sales in Stockton-on-Tees, Hammertons in Batley, West Yorkshire, Horsham Car Centre in West Sussex and Shukers of Telford.SsangYong's UK chief Paul Williams said: "The arrival of the new Tivoli B-segment...

A NEW diesel engine is being introduced by Korean car maker SsangYong in the Korando compact SUV.The 2.2-litre engine replaces the 2.0-litre block used in the current model and sees fuel economy improve by some 15 per cent.There is also a new auto option which will be available in the range topping ELX 4x4 models.The new diesel meets the latest Euro 6 emissions standards and in the two-wheel-drive manual versions of the Korando results in an official fuel return of 53.3mpg with a CO2...

A HINT of what's in store from SsangYong was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in the shape of the XAV-Adventure concept model.With the company hitting a new high after its new Tivoli hatchback was shortlisted for the World Car of the Year awards, the concept car is a clue to the next generation of the Korean brand's popular Korando SUV.Packed with technology, including a hybrid electric four-wheel-drive system, the XAV-Adventure has been conceived as leisure vehicle aimed at...

SSANGYONG's newly introduced Tivoli compact SUV looks even better value for money for buyers who can complete a deal before the end of the month thanks to a special offer which will enable them to upgrade the spec of their car for half the normal price.The special offer is one of a series being offered on the Korean built cars until the end of September and is available on the 1.6 litre petrol version of the Tivoli.Biggest saving is on the SE version which can be upgraded to EX spec...

THE SsangYong Tivoli SUV now arriving in dealerships is likely to be a game-changer in Britain for the Korean company.Smartly styled both outside and in, with a strong equipment list and selling at a competitive price backed by a good warranty, the five-seat and five-door Tivoli will turn heads and open cheque-books.Up to now, SsangYong has sold quirky cars which did not meet the critical demands of British buyers and were sometimes way off the pace in so many ways, but the Tivoli is...

THINK of SsangYong and it conjures up images of cars that are cheap and cheerful, but maybe lacking a little on the quality, technology and general razzmatazz side of things.But all that is about to change because the Korean company that was saved from near-collapse by Indian giant Mahindra has just launched a compact SUV that will take on the likes of the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur.And it would seem that the neatly designed five-door, five-seat Tivoli has everything needed to...

IT'S the car with the flippable name and whichever way it's viewed the Tivoli speaks volumes about SsangYong.The Korean brand has never had a car this good before and with a starting price below £13,000 it is nigh on unbeatable.Even the range topping diesel automatic costs £18,250 and all come with masses of kit plus a five year warranty no matter the mileage.The catch? Well there does not appear to be one and that is after putting all versions of the Tivoli to the test.SsangYong...

YOU might not be able to spell the company name properly (a double dose of S at the start and a capital Y in the middle don't help) but here is a car worth digging deeper into than the badge.The new Tivoli (at least that part is easy enough, and has glamorous associations with Italy, Paris and Copenhagen) is the latest model from a Korean high value car maker that has decided it's time for a full frontal assault on the European car market.In fact, SsangYong has been around since 1954...
