SsangYong extends its popular Tivoli range

Tivoli XLV actionSsangYong is building on the success of its Tivoli model by unveiling the all-new Tivoli XLV at the Geneva Motor Show which offers extra space and additional versatility, and company CEO Johng-sik Choi is confident the model will prove very popular.
He said: “Following rapid growth in the compact SUV market, we responded in 2015 by launching Tivoli, the first small SUV for SsangYong, and already the company’s most successful new car. About 64,000 cars were manufactured and sold around the world last year.

Tivoli XLV rear“Tivoli has been praised universally for meeting a wide range of customer requirements, not least its ability to carry five adults in comfort, and with one of the largest boot capacities in its sector. Now SsangYong has gone a step further by launching an extended car to provide even more carrying capacity and practicality – the XLV.  This was shown as the XLV Air concept at the IAA motor show in Frankfurt last year, and from the extremely favourable feedback we received, took the decision to put the car into production. Following its international debut at Geneva, the SsangYong XLV will go on sale across Europe and around the world from May, and we forecast annual sales from the Tivoli platform including XLV will exceed 100,000 cars this year,” he concluded.

Tivoli XLV bootSharing the same platform and 2,600mm wheelbase as the Tivoli, the XLV features a lengthened body from behind the C pillar, an increase of 238mm over the standard car, expanding the load capacity to a huge 720 cubic litres of storage space.  Meanwhile, the styling cues that distinguish Tivoli are retained, including its SUV body design, sports coupé look and floating roofline.

Tivoli XLV, which according to SsangYong is capable off-roader, offers the versatility needed to meet individual lifestyles. It is the ideal family car for lugging baby buggies and cots for small children, bikes and golf clubs for the sports-minded, and materials or business equipment during the working week. The car provides a large cabin where five tall adults can travel with excellent leg, shoulder and head room.

Tivoli XLV interiorAlthough it is yet to be confirmed which powertrains will be available in the UK, it is thought customers will be able to choose from a Euro 6 compliant 1.6 litre 113bhp e-XDi160 diesel engine which is aimed at delivering a powerful performance with enhanced economy. It can achieve emissions of 117g/km (two-wheel drive, manual transmission with Stop/Start) or there is the choice of a 1.6 litre petrol engine. There is also the option of a 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed Aisin automatic, two-wheel drive or four wheel drive.

Passenger safety has been a top priority for the car, and it comes with seven airbags including front, side and curtain airbags plus a driver’s knee airbag, multi-function Electronic Stability Program, Active Rollover Protection, Brake Assist, Hill Start Assist and Emergency Stop Signal, a tyre pressure monitoring system and a warning reminder on all five seat belt positions.

The car comes with a choice of eight exterior colours, which can be further personalised through the addition of two-tone body and roof colours to ensure style and further individuality.
