Riding on the same 2600mm wheelbase as the regular five-door Tivoli, the XLV features a 235mm longer body. All of the car’s extra millimetres have been grafted on aft of the C-pillar, with cargo space in the boot boosted to 720 litres, presumably with the rear seats up.
The Tivoli XLV will be powered by the same set of 1.6-litre petrol and turbo-diesel engines as the regular-length Tivoli SUV, and can be paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. The XLV will be available in Europe in both front- and all-drive trims.
Availability of the Tivoli in Australia is still to be confirmed, with local importer Ateco telling CarAdvice.com.au last year that the crossover won’t come down under until the company can work the numbers so that “it stacks up commercially”.
