Mahindra owned Korean carmaker Ssangyong are considering a convertible version of their Tivoli SUV.
According to AutoExpress, the South Korean carmaker is quite seriously thinking about following in the steps of the Range Rover Evoque Convertible from Land Rover and has already made a few clay models of the convertible SUV.
However, there is a bit of concern among Ssangyong bosses who feear that a Tivoli convertible could be seen as a joke by customers and could undo all of the brand's good work in making the brand click with its customers.
However, if the convertible Tivoli does get the green signal, it is expected to use a fabric soft top and switch to a 3-door setup.
The Tivoli convertible will use the same 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines from the Tivoli though the engines will have to lug more weight around as extra strengthening will have to be added to make up for the loss of the roof.
Not much else is known about the Tivoli convertible but we should get more news about the topless Tivoli in the coming months.
