The XAV-Adventure imagines a future compact SUV for the brand. The design features chunky, off-road styling that looks reminiscent of a smaller, more modern take on the classic Toyota Land Cruiser. An earlier version of the concept was shown at this year's Seoul Motor Show as a preview of the brand's next-gen Korando.
After debuting in Geneva, the Tivoli gets now gets a diesel engine in Europe. The 1.6-liter oil-burner is offered with a manual or automatic gearbox, plus optional four-wheel drive. One step larger is the XLV-Air concept that previews a longer body with the same powertrain range that's coming next year. The tweaks are most apparent in the extra length in the rear glass behind the C-pillar, plus the red accents in the front and rear bumper catch the eye.
