SsangYong Motor Company, (CEO Johng-sik Choi; www.smotor.com/en) will introduce Tivoli diesel – the smart compact SUV, and two concept models based on the Tivoli platform, XLV-Air and XAV-Adventure at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
Powered by a 1.6 litre Euro 6 diesel engine, Tivoli diesel offers a powerful yet eco-friendly and quiet driving performance, and is available with either manual or automatic transmission, 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive.
XLV-Air (eXciting smart Lifestyle Vehicle) is the pre-production model of the long bodied Tivoli which will be launched early next year. As a multi-role SUV it offers increased luggage space, and comes with a choice of 1.6 litre petrol or 1.6 litre diesel engines, matched with the option of a 6-speed automatic (Aisin) or manual transmission, and two or four wheel drive.
XAV-Adventure is the latest compact SUV concept from SsangYong, a reinterpretation of the company’s iconic Korando brand with a modern and masculine touch. Targeting active and young generations, XAV-Adventure offers maximum drivability and off-road capability as a compact authentic SUV.
