SsangYong has introduced in Geneva the Tivoli XLV, a larger and more practical version of the crossover.

Certainly not the prettiest car being exhibited these days in Geneva, the Tivoli XLV loses some of the original model’s looks in favor of a boosted practicality. It has the same 2,600-mm wheelbase as the standard Tivoli, but it is 238 mm longer after the C pillar to create a bigger trunk that can swallow a massive 25.4 cubic feet (720 liters.)

The stretched rear end makes the SsangYong Tivoli XLV look significantly bulkier than the regular model, but on the other hand the longer rear end allows owners to haul a lot more cargo. For even more space, the 60:40-split rear seats can be folded flat which will be handy whenever carrying longer items. There are multiple stowage areas inside the cabin and all of the door pockets can hold a 1.5-liter bottle. In addition, the trunk comes with a discrete underfloor storage area, luggage net, and a hook to carry various items.

Other than that, the Tivoli XLV is basically the same as the regular model and will be available with a 1.6-liter gasoline engine developing 128 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 160 newton meters of torque from 4,600 rpm. There’s also a 1.6-liter diesel rated at 115 hp from 3,400 rpm and 300 Nm available starting 1,500 rpm. These engines can work with either a six-speed manual or an optional Aisin six-speed automatic transmission, with a choice of a two- or four-wheel drive arrangement.

Just like the regular Tivoli, the bigger XLV version will be manufactured at home in South Korea. You can check out both of them in Geneva these days where SsangYong also has on display the SIV-2 concept serving as a preview for a larger SUV.
