Inside, the Tivoli gets a flat-bottomed steering wheel, semi-bucket seats, 3.5-inch touchscreen display, automatic climate control, foldable second row of seats, etc.. Other than a choice of three colours for the interior, SsangYong also offers Smart Steer function with 3 modes, namely Normal, Comfort and Sport. The SUV also gets ample safety features such as 7 airbags (front dual, driver's knee, and side and curtain), ABS, ESP with hydraulic brake assist, hill start assist, active roll-over protection, and tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

The compact SUV is likely to get both, petrol and diesel variants. While the former is likely to come powered by the 126bhp 1.6-litre e-XGi160 petrol, the latter may house the 112bhp 1.6-litre diesel engine under the hood. Transmission options will comprise an AISIN 6-speed automatic and a 6-speed manual.
