The Tivoli compact crossover has been a big success for SsangYong.

The Tivoli XLV is a very similar car, but with an additional 24cm behind the rear axle to create a much bigger boot.

It makes the XLV a more practical prospect – SsangYong calls it an ‘SUV-estate’.

Does SsangYong’s trademark low price-tag, together with improved practicality, turn the XLV into a compelling choice for caravanners? What tow car ability does this budget crossover have?
