Tivoli XLV

Tivoli XLV is stylish, practical, fun as well as versatile. With a load capacity bigger than many in the class above, the Tivoli XLV is the vehicle for those who want to downsize without compromise. The car can accommodate bikes, golf clubs or luggage for five. The Tivoli XLV is available in five different exterior colours; Grand White, Silent Silver, Flaming Red, Dandy Blue and Space Black.

"The Tivoli offered great value for money, a fuss-free drive and a well-built interior. Add the XLV’s improved practicality to that list and you’ve got a seriously compelling package." - Car Magazine Contributor Adam Binnie

Top Gear Review

"If the SsangYong Tivoli’s blend of practicality and value has got your attention, this larger XLV version could be worth a look as well. It doesn’t cost much more than the standard car, and it offers plenty of extra boot space for those who need it." - Auto Express Test Team

"The Tivoli XLV’s suspension does a decent job of soaking up the kind of bumps you tend to encounter on A-roads and motorways" - The Telegraph Writer Chris Knapman

The Telegraph Review


Tivoli XLV redefines the standard for the interior style and trim for a small crossover. A chunky D-Cut steering wheel feels and looks good, the fascia is ergonomic, modern and purposeful. The Leather trim comes as standard and the front seats are heated, unlike most of the XLV's peers. The Tivoli XLV features a smart cluster that allows you to change its colour depending on your mood. The sophisticated trip computer shows tyre pressures, distance to empty, distance travelled and outside temperature.

The XLV features a 7” touchscreen with full European TomTom navigation. This unit controls radio, audio via USB or Bluetooth and your mobile phone via Bluetooth. The car features a dual-zone air conditioning system which allows driver and passenger to set individual temperatures. The Tivoli XLV adopts a smart steering system, which has 3 modes; Comfort, (the steering wheel turns with less effort than in Normal mode, making it ideal for parking, backing up or going at lower speeds) Normal (ideal for general driving) and Sport (the wheel turns with greater effort than Normal, boosting the responsiveness at high speed to ensure maximum operational control and precision).


The Tivoli XLV doesn't scrimp on space either, with plenty of room available for both driver and front seat passenger and three adults can travel comfortably in the rear thanks to the generously proportioned seats and nearly flat rear floor.

The car is as practical as it is elegant. The boot boasts a maximum of 720l cargo space and the second row seats can be folded either 60:40 or fully flat for even greater carrying and flexibility. The centre console is large enough to fit an iPad while the glove box has a useful inner tray. All four doors have side pockets which can hold a 1.5L bottle and a variety of smaller items.


The XLV has a choice of two 6-speed gearboxes, manual and automatic. Matched with the 1.6 litre diesel engine, they complement the driving style with smooth shifts and well chosen gear ratios. The automatic gearbox is equipped with three alternative shift strategies – eco, power and winter to suit your driving needs.

The Torque on Demand features an advanced 4×4 system that operates in two modes depending on conditions and settings. In auto mode and normal conditions the Tivoli XLV remains in two wheel drive mode to optimise fuel efficiency however when sensors detect a potential loss of grip, the system progressively engages the four wheel drive mode. For very loose or slippery surfaces, the 4×4 system can be locked to allocate drive equally between front and rear wheels. This provides supreme grip and control for low-speed manoeuvres.


Safety features on the Tivoli include; Forward Collision warning and autonomous emergency braking, which detects a potential collision with a vehicle, pedestrian or obstacle, by producing a warning signal and if necessary the emergency braking will intervene with the appropriate amount of force to minimise damage. Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist are both designed to alert the driver that the vehicle is about to deviate from a traffic lane. A small amount of counter steering force can be automatically applied to keep the car towards the centre of the lane.

A Traffic Sign Recognition system recognises the speed limit signs and provides the driver with an on-screen warning, whilst the high beam assist system detects oncoming vehicles and the rear lights of vehicles in front and dips headlamp high beams accordingly.

The Tivoli is equipped with 7 air-bags for maximum passenger protection on impact – the most in its class. Isofix child seat mountings and to the rear outer seats to allow a firm and rigid attachment of child seats.
