SangYong proudly shared the following achievement with @MotorMartin1 and the rest of the motoring press with the release of the following news last Thursday where they stated that the newly launched SsangYong Tivoli compact SUV has been nominated for World Car of the Year (WCOTY) 2016, the first ever nomination for SangYong.
SsangYong go on to say that 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 Korea earlier this year, and internationally in May. Tivoli diesel is being launched internationally at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) this week.
Is this a sign that SsangYong is poised to gain a greater presence here in the UK? Certainly it appears to MotorMartin that this could be a very good second half of the year if such positive news continues to waken the consumer into looking away from the norm when it comes to buying their next new car. Well done SsangYong from @MotorMartin1
Where will you go?
