It’s been mentioned before by MotorMartin how SsangYong Motor UK is one of the manufacturers who think about the communities that they work in and around helping out where they can. It’s now the turn of learner drivers to feel the benefit as SsangYong have shared with MotorMartin the news that they are launching a special programme with its new Tivoli SUV dedicated to helping out driving schools.

Available on all Tivoli 1.6 petrol and diesel models and worth £500 to officially recognised driving schools, the programme includes the free fitment of dual control pedals, and a £100 contribution towards the cost of a roof mounted learner A board and ‘L plate’ magnetic graphic panels. All important, yet expensive, additional costs that need to be considered by businesses and solo driving instructors must consider.


In addition, SsangYong are happy to be providing a £500 ‘congratulations on passing your test’ voucher to those who have learnt to drive and pass their test in a Tivoli, redeemable either as a cash discount or a deposit contribution when buying a new car. An excellent incentive to pass!

A number of SsangYong dealers will also be established as expert driving school centres where a Tivoli with dual controls can be demonstrated.

The contemporary SsangYong Tivoli B-segment SUV is available with 1.6 litre petrol or diesel power, manual and automatic transmission, two-wheel drive or 4×4. Perfect for learning.

“We know that many driving instructors need a car that’s easy for their pupils to learn on, while also doubling as their own personal transport,” says Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK. “Highly responsive and light to drive, the Tivoli meets both these demands, and also comes with a market leading 5 year limitless mileage warranty to give driving school owners complete peace of mind.”


Tivoli SE – from £12,950

The Tivoli SE starts from just £12,950, and is powered by a 1.6 litre Euro 6 engine with manual transmission.  Finished in a smart grey cloth trim, it includes 16” alloy wheels, cruise control, a stop/go system, Smart steering (normal, comfort and sport modes), an RDS/Bluetooth radio and seven airbags.

Tivoli EX – from £14,600

The EX features cruise control, smart steering (normal, comfort and sport modes), an RDS/Bluetooth radio and seven airbags, grey or beige leather upholstery, 18” alloy Spiral wheels, dual zone climate control, 7” touch screen smart audio system with rear view camera, heated front seats, front fog lights and a luggage load cover.

Tivoli ELX – from £16,000

The top of the range ELX adds the choice of manual and automatic transmission, and features Diamond cut alloy wheels, a smart instrument cluster, smart keyless starting, front & amp; rear parking sensors, privacy glass, rear spoiler, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, full TomTom navigation system with 7” touch screen, rear view camera, and the option of the styling pack and red leather pack with My Tivoli.

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 the engine and drivetrain, wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system.  Wearable components such as clutch friction plates and brake pads 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.


Once again, MotorMartin finds himself impressed with the commitment of SsangYong UK to improving businesses where it can make a difference and for that, I offer a deserved MotorMartin well done.

Where will you go?
