The SsangYong Tivoli is a mini SUV made by the SsangYong Motor Company. It is SsangYong’s first new model under Mahindra & Mahindra ownership. The car is named after the Italian town of Tivoli, Lazio, and was chosen because it can be read as “I love it” in reverse.
The Tivoli was in testing and development for the three years prior to its announcement in November 2014 and was revealed in concept with the project name X100. It was launched in South Korea in January 2015.
The Tivoli is offered with a choice of petrol or diesel 1.6-litre engines and is available in two or four-wheel drive. It is equipped with a six-speed manual or AISIN automatic gearbox, which SsangYong claims is as quick and efficient as a dual-clutch setup.

At the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, SsangYong Motor Company launched an extended version of Tivoli, the XLV. Sharing the same platform and 2,600mm wheelbase as the Tivoli, the XLV features a lengthened body from behind the C pillar, an increase of 238mm over the standard car, expanding the load capacity to a huge 720 cubic litres of space. Meanwhile, the styling cues that distinguish Tivoli are retained, including its harmoniously fused SUV body design, sports coupé look and floating roofline.
