Fam­ily ap­peal of new Tivoli XLV

Staines Informer - - MOTORS -

THE new Tivoli XLV from SsangYong ex­tends the fam­ily ap­peal of the com­pany’s al­ready popular Tivoli com­pact SUV.

Its se­cret is a stretch to the body­work be­hind the rear seats, adding 238mm to the Tivoli’s length and ex­tend­ing the boot to an enor­mous 720 cu­bic litres of space.

De­signed to of­fer a mul­ti­role, multi-func­tion so­lu­tion to a wide range of cus­tomers, the Tivoli XLV pro­vides just the ver­sa­til­ity needed to meet in­di­vid­ual lifestyles: 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.

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

The Tivoli XLV is of­fered with a Euro 6 com­pli­ant 1.6 litre diesel en­gine and matched with the op­tion of a six-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion or six-speed au­to­matic, two-wheel drive or 4x4.

The 1.6 litre diesel en­gine achieves a CO2 emis­sion level of just 117g/km (twowheel drive, man­ual trans­mis­sion with Stop/ Start), and econ­omy of up to 62.8mpg on the Com­bined cy­cle.

The SsangYong DNA is all about 4x4 and the Tivoli XLV draws on this by of­fer­ing the op­tion of an in­tel­li­gent four­wheel drive sys­tem. The elec­tron­i­cally con­trolled on-de­mand sys­tem dis­trib­utes power to front and rear drive shafts, and au­to­mat­i­cally ad­justs to the road sur­face and driv­ing con­di­tions to op­ti­mise per­for­mance.

In nor­mal driv­ing, drive sys­tem dis­trib­utes the all power to the front wheels to en­hance fuel ef­fi­ciency and au­to­mat­i­cally adapts to four­wheel drive in snow or wet slip­pery con­di­tions, by di­vert­ing power to the rear wheels as well to en­sure driv­ing sta­bil­ity.

For in­creased sta­bil­ity and re­as­sur­ance, par­tic­u­larly when driv­ing on a hill or slope, the four-wheel drive op­er­ates with Hill Start As­sist, which helps by de­liv­er­ing power to any wheels that are spinning.

The Tivoli XLV fea­tures dig­i­tal-dual zone au­to­matic air con­di­tion­ing, an in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem with RDS ra­dio, seven-inch high-res­o­lu­tion touch screen, a USB/AUX port, iPod and Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity, Tom-Tom nav­i­ga­tion and a rear view cam­era. There is cruise con­trol, park­ing sen­sors front and rear, rain sens­ing wipers, au­to­matic head­light ac­ti­va­tion and stylish roof rails.

All models in the SsangYong range are cov­ered by a best-in-class five-year lim­it­less mileage war­ranty. De­signed to be to­tally trans­par­ent and give cus­tomers com­plete peace of mind, ‘lim­it­less’ means just that: not a max­i­mum mileage con­di­tion that some brands im­pose in their small print.

Ma­jor me­chan­i­cal com­po­nents are cov­ered, in­clud­ing wheel bear­ings, sus­pen­sion joints and bushes, steer­ing joints, shock ab­sorbers and the au­dio sys­tem. Wear­able com­po­nents such as clutch discs and brake fric­tion ma­te­ri­als, which could have their life re­duced by poor driv­ing, are cov­ered for one year or 12,500 miles, and the bat­tery and paint­work for three years.

The Tivoli XLV goes on sale this sum­mer.
