The compact SsangYong Tivoli (see our top 10 small SUVs) has been followed by the larger Tivoli XLV, a car rather more in line with SsangYong’s usual speciality of big, utilitarian four-wheel-drive vehicles. You could call it an 'SUV estate'.
Much of what the Tivoli XLV offers is unchanged from the regular Tivoli, so it's an easy and unthreatening car to drive and never feels uncomfortably bulky from behind the wheel.
SSANGYONG TIVOLI XLV
20th October 2016
The 1.6-litre petrol engine from the regular Tivoli won't be available in the XLV, but that doesn't matter, because the 1.6-litre diesel engine was our favourite in the range and well suited to the XLV's bulk. Although it feels a little coarser than some rival diesels, it has plenty of power and fuel economy is reasonable, too – although the optional automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive negatively affect efficiency.
