Fash ed Linda recently tested SsangYong’s new Tivoli XLV, and discovered that it’s sleek, stylish and full of hidden treasures.


A morning meeting in town – Luas works means lots of diversions. Built in Satellite Navigation saves the day! Phew, I’m on time after all.


It’s shoot day and we’re going off road. The Tivoli stays smooth and easy to control – result!

I’ve meetings a couple of hours outside the city. The built in handsfree means I can catch up on calls for the journey’s length. Plus, there’s a USB port so I can charge my phone. Winner.


I’ve driven it loads and haven’t filled it up yet. The 1.6L diesel engine is economical, and environmentally friendly – the Stop and Go feature lowers CO2 emissions.


Half day, and it’s off for some last minute holiday shopping. Parking’s a breeze with the reversing camera and sensors.


I’m off to a shoot with loads of clothes. After, I collect my boyfriend, plus his golf clubs. The boot fits everything AND there’s still space!



I meet my parents for lunch in Carton House after a smooth and effortless drive on the motorway. The luggage cover ensures my handbag is safe and out of sight in the boot when we go for a walk afterwards.
