SsangYong has disclosed the name of its upcoming B-segment crossover which will be called Tivoli.

Codenamed X100, the subcompact crossover has already been spied on numerous occasions and also teased through the XIV-Air and XIV-Adventure concepts from Paris Motor Show last month. Now, SsangYong has announced the model will be commercialized with the Tivoli designation, after an Italian town located 30 km near Rome.

Aside from announcing the vehicle's name, SsangYong has also released three renders of the sporty-looking crossover which will probably be 4195mm long just like the XIV concepts. We also catch a glimpse of the interior cabin which will likely ride on a 2600mm wheelbase so it should end up being quite spacious while the layout and design follows the norm of South Korean automakers.

There's no word about what will power the Tivoli but SsangYong previously said the XIV concepts have Euro 6-compliant four-cylinder 1.6-liter gasoline and diesel engines. We will know for sure in the months to come as the model will go on sale in January at home in South Korea and then globally by mid-2015.
