The front end features a bold look sans a grille while the headlamp setup is formed by LED DRLs in a straight line with projector headlight below them. Going down, one can notice the chrome accent that flows sideways and above from one fog lamp to the other. In between them is a honey comb mesh grille. The rear profile of the Tivoli XLV features C shaped brake lights that would also be a LED unit. The rear end gets a clean profile with only the logo sitting in between. The number plate recess sits above the rectangular reflector while reflector strips sit on either side of the posterior.
