The newly launched SsangYong Tivoli compact SUV has been nominated for World Car of The Year (WCOTY) 2016.
It's the first ever nomination for SsangYong, with just 20 new cars being nominated for the 2016 WCOTY title.
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.
The Tivoli diesel is being launched internationally at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week.
