The European market three-row SUV may be released in 2022. However, at the moment this version was announced only for the model that will be based on “Korean”.
A compact crossover SsangYong Tivoli released in 2015. A year later he was joined by a “stretched” version, which in Korea is the Air console, and in other countries is called XLV. Moreover, despite the increased length (4440 mm 4225 mm versus the restyled Tivoli), this cross is only five. Now it became known that the XLV/Air will still get a third row of seats. But while the seven-seat option confirmed for the SsangYong SUV, and for future models of Mahindra, which will make on the basis of “Korean”. Indian brand Mahindra owns SsangYong.
In Europe, seven-seat crossover should appear in 2022, this was announced during the presentation of the European division of Mahindra, reports Spanish publication Motor. At the moment the project is known as the factory index S204. According to Indian media, home of the SUV may debut earlier commodity name supposedly will XUV400.
We will remind, in the range of Mahindra is a clone of the standard the SsangYong Tivoli is XUV300, it has sold in India, and next year the cross will reach the European market. “Three hundred” smaller “source code” – length is equal to 3995 mm, but the wheelbase is identical (2600 mm, such as in XLV). Model Mahindra “cut” specifically for India, as the home of company cars up to a length of four meters based on tax benefits. Externally XUV300 quite different from Tivoli, in the same vein will surely make the exterior XUV400.
On “old-world” market, Mahindra three-row crossover will be available with a gasoline engine 1.5. It is unclear whether he has a turbo, power is not disclosed. Have XUV300 their motors, not the original from the Korean gasoline turbo engine 1.2 (110 HP) and a turbodiesel 1.5 (117 HP) of its own design Mahindra.
Interestingly, the company SsangYong is still not introduced the restyled XLV/Air, while the “short” Tivoli was updated last spring. Pre-reform long SUV is equipped with petrol “aspirated” 1.6 (128 HP) and diesel 1.6 (115 HP). Refreshed Tivoli is available with petrol “turboservice” 1.5 (136 HP) and a diesel of the same volume (163 HP). For all modifications of SsangYong crosses provided both front and all-wheel drive. Mahindra XUV300 – only front-wheel drive, 4WD version at XUV400 probably will not.
Meanwhile, it is possible that the delay in the premiere of transfigured SsangYong XLV/Air is related to the fact that the Korean brand is preparing for a three-row version.
