The SsangYong Tivoli – the brand’s first B-segment SUV, retains its stylish good looks and class-leading levels of equipment and interior space, while also receiving a number of significant safety enhancements for 2017.
Safety features available include Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking System, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist, High Beam Assistance, and Traffic Sign Recognition.
Further enhancements for both driver and passengers include a fully adjustable steering wheel for rake and reach, improved ventilation for the front seat passengers, and reclining rear seats for optimum comfort on long journeys. A new 2-position base for the boot floor also provides increased load carrying practicality and flexibility.
Tivoli XLV, the extended bodied multi-role ‘SUV estate’ derived from the Tivoli platform, also receives the same safety upgrades and improvements for 2017, with the addition of heated rear seats for extra passenger comfort in winter.
Evaluating data from the vehicle’s on-board camera, Forward Collision Warning (FCW) can detect a potential collision with a vehicle, pedestrian or obstacle. If a collision appears imminent, the FCW system will warn the driver.
The Traffic Sign Recognition System recognises speed limit signs and provides the driver with an on-screen warning while High Beam Assist detects on-coming vehicles at night and dips the headlight high beam. High Beam Assist also tracks the rear lights of vehicles in front and dips the high beam accordingly.
Tivoli EX includes Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking, the ELX and all Tivoli XLV models receive the full safety pack comprising all six safety features, giving all these cars their 4-star NCAP rating.
Passenger safety is a top priority with Tivoli and Tivoli XLV, and all cars come as standard with seven airbags including front, side and curtain airbags plus a driver’s knee airbag, multi-function Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Active Rollover Protection, Brake Assist, Hill Start Assist and Emergency Stop Signal, a tyre pressure monitoring system and a warning reminder on all five seat belt positions.
There is a choice of engines which include Euro 6 compliant 1.6 litre Euro 6 petrol or 1.6 litre diesel engine, and matched with the option of a 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed Aisin automatic, two-wheel drive or 4×4, depending on model.
