Rutherglen Reformer - - Drive Time Extra - Com­pact SUV

The newly launched SsangYong Tivoli com­pact SUV has been nom­i­nated for World Car of The Year (WCOTY) 2016, the first ever nom­i­na­tion for SsangYong.

Just 20 new cars have been nom­i­nated for the 2016 World Car of the Year ti­tle, which is in­de­pen­dently recog­nised as the num­ber one car award in the world.

Now in its eleventh year, WCOTY was es­tab­lished in 2005, and the 2016 win­ner will be an­nounced in New York in late March next year.

“This is a huge ac­co­lade for the Tivoli and SsangYong,” com­mented Paul Wil­liams, CEO of SsangYong Mo­tor UK. “Suf­fice to say, we are ab­so­lutely de­lighted!”

The petrol pow­ered Tivoli was launched in its Korean home mar­ket ear­lier this year, and in­ter­na­tion­ally in May.

The Tivoli diesel was launched in­ter­na­tion­ally at the Frank­furt Mo­tor Show this week.
