SsangYong has made the Tivoli range a lot more practical by unveiling an extended version of the vehicle in the form of the Tivoli XLV. Earlier shown as the XLV Air concept in Frankfurt last year, the new Tivoli XLV will be shown at the Geneva Motor Show.
Featuring the same platform and 2,600mm wheelbase as the Tivoli, the XLV gets a lengthened body from behind the C pillar. This marks an increase of 235mm over the standard car, expanding the boot capacity to 720litres.
The Tivoli XLV will be offered with a choice of a Euro-6 compliant 1.6-litre petrol or 1.6-litre diesel engine, and matched with the option of a 6-speed manual gearbox or 6-speed Aisin automatic, two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.
Besides the Tivoli XLV, SsangYong will also showcase its SIV-2 midsize SUV concept at the Geneva Motor Show. As the next iteration on from the SIV-1 concept which was shown at Geneva in 2013, this new concept takes a step further and is a mild hybrid. In fact, the SIV-2 combines a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a 10kW electric motor-generator and a 500Wh lithium ion battery.
