Despite heavy camouflaging, the car’s longer bonnet and boxier rear set it apart from the smaller Crossland X model it will sit above.
The model wears a familiar Vauxhall grille that’ll likely feature a single horizontal bar like its smaller sibling. At the back, its rear window sits at an angle to give the car tauter proportions.
Like the Crossland X, the Grandland X is twinned with a Peugeot model. The larger Vauxhall will share both underpinnings and some engines with the French brand’s 3008. The latter car comes with a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol, or turbocharged diesel engines of 1.6 and 2.0-litre capacities.
The Peugeot is only produced in front-wheel drive, but the Grandland X’s more rugged image means two and four-wheel drive versions are likely to be offered. It’s expected to come with a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions.
