SsangYong has confirmed that its long-coming new compact SUV will be known as the Tivoli, named for the historic Italian town.

Teased over the past three years by a series of ‘XIV’ concepts, the new small SUV has also been known in recent months as the ‘X100’.

This week, the Korean carmaker has also confirmed that a global launch will occur through 2015.

Speaking with TMR today, local distributor Ateco Automotive's Asian brands spokesman Daniel Cotterill confirmed that an Australian debut is expected late in the third or early in the fourth quarter of next year.

The news of the new model’s naming also brings a trio of illustrations that reveal a clear look at its final design.

As expected, the most recent evolutions of the XIV concepts have guided the Tivoli’s styling, with the ‘XIV Adventure’ concept in particular wearing a nearly production-ready look.

In concept form, the XIV is powered by a ‘choice’ of Euro 6-compliant 1.6 litre four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, matched with six-speed manual and auto transmissions.

Further details are still to be released, although it appears likely the Tivoli will boast the same 2600mm wheelbase and 4195mm overall length of its concept forebears, understood to be an all-new platform.

In Australia, the ageing SsangYong Korando - larger at 4410mm long but with a similar 2650mm wheelbase - is offered with 2.0 litre 110kW/197Nm petrol and 129kW/360Nm diesel engines.

In Australia, the X100 would slot in below the Korando as a rival to the Ford EcoSport and Holden Trax, along with Peugeot’s 2008 and the ageing Nissan Juke and Skoda Yeti.

Other rivals in the coming year will include the Jeep Renegade, Honda HR-V, and Mazda's recently-revealed CX-3.

Watch for further details on the Tivoli to surface in the coming months.
