In addition to the regular Tivoli range, SsangYong will also offer the slightly larger Tivoli XLV when the brand relaunches locally in November.
The XLV rides on the same platform and 2600mm wheelbase as the standard Trivoli, however, the body has been lengthened by 238mm from behind the C pillar. The extra length gives the XLV 720-litres of cargo space.
The Tivoli XLV has only one engine option, a 1.6-litre turbo-diesel capable of 84kW and 300Nm. The oiler can only be purchased with an automatic transmission but does get the choice of front or all-wheel drive depending on the trim level.
All-wheel drive models will utilise an electronically controlled on-demand system to distribute power to the front and rear axles.
SsangYong is going to give the XLV a fighting chance by including dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, rain sensing wipers, rear-view camera, automatic headlights and a 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
XLV models will also get autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning and seven airbags including one for the driver’s knees.
Trim levels and pricing will be confirmed closer to the Tivoli XLV’s Australian launch in November.
