Longer and more spacious version of the Tivoli will reach the UK in May

The Ssangyong Tivoli XLV - a longer, more spacious version of the standard Tivoli crossover - has been revealed at the Geneva motor show.

Based on the XLV Air concept first revealed at the Frankfurt motor show in September last year, the Tivoli XLV will go on sale across Europe in May.

The production model keeps the same 2600mm wheelbase as the standard Tivoli, but is stretched by 235mm from the C-pillar back, providing more storage space and room inside. In total, carrying capacity has increased to 720 litres with its rear seats in place - well up from the 423 litres offered by the standard car.

Powertrain options include the same 1.6-litre diesel and petrol engines already offered in the Tivoli, coupled to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, but the manufacturer says final UK engine options are “to be determined”. It’s available in both two and four-wheel drive forms.

Ssangyong says the Tivoli XLV “provides the versatility needed to meet a wide range of individual lifestyles”, and anticipates that with the introduction of this new Tivoli variant more than 100,000 units of the crossover will be sold in 2016.

UK specifications have yet to be confirmed, but we expect the Tivoli XLV to go on sale with almost identical trim levels and options as the regular Tivoli. Pricing has yet to be revealed, but as the regular Tivoli range starts at £12,950 we’d expect the XLV to cost from around £15,000.

Our Verdict

SsangYong Tivoli
Ssangyong Tivoli costs from £12,950

We drive Ssangyong's new small SUV, which isn't up with the best in class but is certainly worth consideration as a budget option
