Ssangyong dropped a teaser of the extended Ssangyong Tivoli 7-seater, which is christened as the Ssangyong Tivoli XLV. It will make its world debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show next month.
Previewed by a concept model almost a year ago at the same venue, the teaser reveals the exterior sketch of the production-spec Ssangyong Tivoli XLV, which features a front-end identical to the regular Ssangyong Tivoli. Changes start to become apparent at the side, where it has an overall length extended by 235 mm, while the wheelbase remains the same.
Although the interior has not been revealed, it’s expected to be identical to the feature-packed, customizable interior of the Ssangyong Tivoli. The company has confirmed that the boot volume has increased to 720 liters – well up from the standard Tivoli’s 423 liters – which also hides a couple of extra seats.
It will be powered by the same 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines already offered in the Tivoli, with an option between a six-speed manual gearbox, or a six-speed automatic. An AWD system could be equipped in top-end grades.
