Ssangyong enhances Tivoli’s safety features

Ssangyong Tivoli received a number of significant safety enhancements, while retaining its stylish good looks and class-leading levels of equipment and interior space.

Safety features such as Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking System, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist, High Beam Assistance, and Traffic Sign Recognition, are now available in Ssangyong Tivoli.

The Forward Collision Warning can detect a potential collision with a vehicle, pedestrian, or obstacle, and warns the drivers if a collision appears to be imminent. The Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) intervenes with appropriate braking force to stop the vehicle if there’s insufficient braking response from the driver.

The Lane Departure Warning alerts the driver when a vehicle is about to deviate from a traffic lane, and the Lane Keeping Assist helps the car stay on its lane by applying a small amount of counter-steering force.

Tivoli’s Traffic Sign Recognition identifies speed limit signs and provides an information to the driver with an on-screen warning.

High Beam Assist detects on-coming vehicles at night and dips the headlight high beam. The system also tracks the rear lights of vehicles in front and dips the high beam accordingly.

All Tivoli variants have a standard passenger safety features including seven airbags, multi-function Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Active Rollover Protection, Brake Assist, Hill Start Assist, and Emergency Stop Signal, a tire pressure monitoring system and a warning reminder on all five seatbelt positions.

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 two-position base for the boot floor also provides increased load carrying practicality and flexibility.

The Tivoli XLV variant also receives the same safety upgrades and improvements for 2017, with the addition of heated rear seats for extra passenger comfort.
