SsangYong has updated its Tivoli XLV crossover for 2017 with extra driving safety features and some minor interior updates to improve practicality.
SsangYong has updated its Tivoli XLV crossover less than a year after the car’s launch in Britain. The XLV, which was launched during the second half of last year, is essentially a longer and more practical version of the Tivoli which rivals the likes of the Renault Captur and Nissan Juke.
Now SsangYong have decided to bring some safety and practicality-related updates to its Tivoli XLV. In terms of styling nothing has really changed outside or inside, although the interior does include more buttons now thanks to the added onboard features.
The new safety features include lane-keeping assistance which can constantly adjust the steering to keep the car in the centre of the lane. Traffic sign recognition is also added, along with high-beam assistance which automatically adjusts the headlights to the situation ahead.
Alongside the new safety features, the Tivoli XLV also now has a steering wheel which is fully adjustable for both reach and rake. The ventilation system has also been upgraded and the rear bench seats now recline for extra comfort on long trips.
A 1.6-litre turbodiesel with 113bhp remains the only engine available for the Tivoli XLV. It lets the crossover cover the 0-62mph sprint in 12 seconds. The car also has a braked towing capacity of 1,500kg. A choice of either a front-wheel or four-wheel drive powertrain along with a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox are among other options for buyers.
