New SsangYong Tivoli XLV Priced From £18,250 In The UK

After announcing that their larger Tivoli XLV would make its UK debut this summer, SsangYong has now released both pricing and specs for this ultra-practical and budget-friendly SUV.

UK buyers will need to spend £18,250 for the Tivoli XLV 1.6 diesel manual (with 2WD), £1,000 more than they would on the equivalent Tivoli ELX.

Getting the automatic version would require £19,250, whereas the 1.6 diesel manual 4×4 and the 4×4 automatic cost £19,500 and £20,500 respectively.

The Euro 6 compliant 1.6-liter e-XDi160 diesel engine is good for 115 PS and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque, achieving a CO2 emission level of just 117g/km and averaging up to 62.8 mpg (4.5 l/100km) in the combined cycle.

Because SsangYong made passenger safety a priority with this car, the Tivoli XLV comes with 7 airbags, multi-function ESP, Active Rollover Protection, Brake Assist, Hill Start Assist and ESS (Emergency Stop Signal), a tire pressure monitoring system and a warning reminder on all five seat belt positions.

In terms of practicality, the Tivoli XLV features digital-dual zone automatic air conditioning, an infotainment system with RDS radio, 7″ high-res touchscreen, USB/AUX port, iPod & Bluetooth connectivity, Tom-Tom navigation and rear view camera. There’s also cruise control, parking sensors (front & back), rain sensing wipers, automatic headlights and roof rails.

Compared to the regular Tivoli, the XLV comes with a lengthened body from behind the C-pillar, which makes for an increase of 238mm (9.4 in) over the standard car – expanding load capacity to 720 cubic liters (25.4 cu.ft) of space.

“Tivoli has been praised universally for meeting a number of customer requirements, not least its ability to carry five adults in comfort, and for having one of the largest boot capacities in its class,” said SsangYong Motor UK CEO Paul Williams. “Now SsangYong has gone a step further by launching an extended car to provide even more carrying capacity and practicality, and we believe that this will enable us to compete with SUVs such as the Nissan Qashqai, but also station wagon style cars like the MINI Clubman, Skoda Yeti & Roomster and other small estates.”

    There are many ugly cars today on the market, and many others were made in the past. but i think this is by far one of the ugliest i have ever seen. SsangYong has never made head turning cars (unless you mean that as turning your head in the opposite direction) but this one is really something.
