The new five-seat SUV sits above the Mokka X and Crossland X in Vauxhall’s line-up. Like the related 3008 and Citroën C5 Aircross – which was revealed in April also shares the same structure - it competes with the Seat Ateca and Nissan Qashqai.
The Grandland X is powered by a selection of turbocharged engines from the PSA Group and General Motors ranges. The entry-level variant has a 1.2-litre 128bhp petrol engine, with a 1.6-litre diesel the other engine option at launch, priced from £23,840. Front-wheel drive is standard.
The car’s exterior design shares some design features with the Crossland X, including similar lights, but the car’s larger size - it’s 200mm longer - and more conventional SUV shape adds to its road presence and creates a more aggressive stance.
