Ssangy­ong launches the Tivoli 4x4

The Oban Times - - DRIVING FORCE -

As the cold win­ter weather starts to bite, SsangY­ong is in­tro­duc­ing a 4x4 win­ter up­grade of­fer on its 1.6-litre turbo diesel Tivoli SUV and ex­tended bod­ied Tivoli XLV mod­els.

The of­fer ap­plies to cur­rent EX and ELX mod­els, man­ual and au­to­matic, and reg­is­tered be­fore Jan­uary 31, 2017.

Com­pre­hen­sively equipped, the Tivoli EX 4x4 fea­tures cruise con­trol, smart steer­ing (nor­mal, com­fort and sport modes), an RDS/ Blue­tooth ra­dio and seven airbags, grey or beige leather up­hol­stery, 18-inch al­loy Spi­ral wheels, dual zone cli­mate con­trol, seven-inch touch screen smart au­dio sys­tem with rear view cam­era, heated front seats, front fog lights and a luggage load cover.

The top of the range ELX 4x4 adds the choice of man­ual and au­to­matic trans­mis­sion, and fea­tures di­a­mond- cut al­loy wheels, a smart in­stru­ment clus­ter, smart key­less start­ing, front and rear park­ing sen­sors, pri­vacy glass, rear spoiler, au­to­matic head­lamps, rain sens­ing wipers, full TomTom nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem with seven-inch touch screen, rear view cam­era, and the op­tion of the styling pack and red leather pack with My Tivoli.

Shar­ing the same plat­form and 2,600mm wheel­base as the Tivoli, the Tivoli XLV SUV es­tate fea­tures a length­ened body from be­hind the C pil­lar, an in­crease of 238mm over the stan­dard car, ex­pand­ing the load ca­pac­ity to a huge 720 cu­bic litres of space.

The SsangY­ong Tivoli 4x4 em­ploys an in­tel­li­gent and ad­vanced all-wheel drive torque on de­mand sys­tem that senses the road sur­face and driv­ing con­di­tions, and dis­trib­utes the power to the wheels that need it most.

Un­der nor­mal driv­ing con­di­tions, 100 per cent of the en­gine’s torque is de­liv­ered to the front wheels so that the car runs with op­ti­mised fuel ef­fi­ciency. On icy or slip­pery roads or, when driv­ing on wet off-road con­di­tions, power is dis­trib­uted to both the front and rear wheels to en­sure a safe, sta­ble and de­pend­able drive. The tech­nol­ogy op­er­ates to give a smooth and safe de­par­ture when driv­ing away from a stand­still on a steep slope, while a lock mode dis­trib­utes power equally be­tween the front and rear wheels at speeds be­low 25mph to op­ti­mise trac­tion.

In con­junc­tion with the stan­dard elec­tronic sta­bil­ity pro­gram (ESP) with hy­draulic brake as­sist and four- chan­nel anti-lock brak­ing sys­tem (ABS), the four-wheel drive sys­tem pro­vides the best pos­si­ble grip and con­trol what­ever the con­di­tions. Hill start as­sist (HSA) and ac­tive roll- over pro­tec­tion (ARP) also fea­ture.

The Tivoli 4x4 also fea­tures multi-link rear sus­pen­sion for a com­fort­able drive on the road, and in­creased wheel ar­tic­u­la­tion for op­ti­mum grip off-road.
