Vauxhall Crossland X (2017–)
Vauxhall unveils Crossland X
The Crossland X replaces the Meriva and is smaller than both the Astra and Mokka X. However, thanks to smart interior packaging, the compact SUV will offer space for four adults and 410-520 litres of boot space.
The rear seats slide, providing more luggage space at the expense of less legroom to rear seat passengers. When the rear seats are folded down completely, luggage capacity increases to an impressive 1,255 litres, with the wide number of permutations in between making the Crossland X capable of carrying a wide range of items.
The interior of the Crossland X offers sculptural design and precision, with the instrument panel and centre stack horizontally aligned to the driver for added functionality. High quality finishes are provided with chrome accents around the cluster and air vents, while the centrepiece of the interior is the up to eight-inch colour touchscreen.
The Crossland X is based on the platform of the second generation Citroen C3 Picasso (not the Peugeot 2008), though it uses the PureTech 1.2 litre 3-cylinder petrol engines with outputs of 81PS to 130PS and 1.6 litre diesels with 99PS or 120PS and 300Nm torque. The PSA EAT6 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission is available with the 110PS 1.2T engine. PSA's 'Grip Control' is not part of the spec.
With either Radio R 4.0 IntelliLink or Navi 5.0 IntelliLink infotainment systems, both compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the Crossland X keeps the driver connected with the unit’s seamless integration into the centre console. The latest wireless inductive charging is also available for added convenience and a reduction in wires, and the inclusion of Vauxhall OnStar as standard provides a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to seven devices to keep all occupants connected while on the go.
