The new five-seat SUV spun off the Peugeot 3008 underpinnings & will sit above the Mokka X and Crossland X. Looks very similar to a high-riding Astra.


Vauxhall has released the first images of the all-new Vauxhall Grandland X SUV, the third member of its 'X' family, which receives its public debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

With a sporty design and off-road looks, the Grandland X has elevated seating for five people, generous luggage space, good all-round visibility and a raft of safety technologies. At 4.48 metres long, it will be the largest SUV in Vauxhall's range, offering even more cabin space than the 20 centimetre-shorter Mokka X and Crossland X.

LIGHTING, COMFORT AND DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS

The Vauxhall Grandland X offers a selection of ultra-modern assistance and comfort features. Adaptive Cruise Control with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking, Driver Drowsiness Alert, and Advanced Park Assist are just some highlights.

AGR-certified premium ergonomic front seats, heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats and smart tailgate, that opens with a kick, all ensure driver and passenger comfort.

Grandland X drivers and passengers can enjoy outstanding connectivity that is now typical across the Vauxhall range, with the latest generation of IntelliLink systems and the personal connectivity and service assistant Vauxhall OnStar, which now includes new services such as hotel booking and parking space search. Smartphones can easily be integrated to the infotainment system and charged wirelessly via inductive charging on handsets with this function.

Vauxhall continues to deliver on its commitment to lead in lighting technology, equipping the Grandland X with the innovative Adaptive Forward Lighting LED headlamps. Functions such as cornering light, high beam assist and auto levelling guarantee optimal illumination of the road ahead.

The Vauxhall Grandland X offers safe driving fun on every surface, thanks to the optional electronic Grip Control that ensures traction in diverse driving situations. The driver has a choice of five driving modes, for each one the system adapts the torque distribution to the front wheels, allows wheel-spin if necessary, and, with the automatic transmission, adjusts shift points as well as throttle response. This ensures traction and stable handling regardless of the road surface.

DESIGN

At 4,477mm long, 1,844mm wide and 1,636mm high, the new Vauxhall Grandland X is a robust SUV from every perspective. Above the front skid plate, the bold grille proudly displays the Vauxhall Griffin.

The chrome winglets embrace the brand logo and flow outwards to the slim, double-wing LED headlamps, visually widening the front and giving the Grandland X a powerful, solid stance. The bonnet features the signature Vauxhall crease - an expression of the Vauxhall design philosophy of sculptural artistry and technical precision.

The side profile echoes the attractive combination of rugged SUV charm and elegant lines. Muscular, sculpted wheel arches and protective cladding on the lower body give the Grandland X real off-road appeal. In contrast, clear lines and the refined blade on the lower doors identify the new Grandland X as a member of the Vauxhall family. The optional two-tone finish, with the roof in contrasting black, adds an extra touch of personalisation.

The smooth flow into the rest of the body is emphasised by the "breakthrough" C-pillar, which creates a dynamic bond to the rear. The rear view of the Grandland X shows what real SUV design means, with a wide stance, silver underside protection with integrated tailpipes on the left and right, protective cladding, and slim LED taillights, underlining the newcomer's sporty, muscular character.

The Vauxhall Grandland X has the same quality on the inside: the instrument panel and centre console with touchscreen are clearly laid out and horizontally aligned to the driver. The centre stack has three horizontal rows of controls for fast and intuitive access to infotainment, climate control and chassis functions.

Drivers and passengers benefit from the elevated seating position typical of an SUV, which ensures good visibility in all situations. Its long wheelbase of 2,675mm means the compact class SUV has plenty of space for up to five people, while the luggage compartment (with a load volume from 514 litres to a maximum of 1,652 litres) offers generous room for luggage and sport equipment.

Vauxhall Grandland X revealed as new Seat Ateca rival

Five-seat SUV will get Vauxhall’s latest in car technology; it’s due on sale early next year

The Vauxhall Grandland X has been revealed five months before its Frankfurt motor show debut.

The new five-seat SUV is spun off the Peugeot 3008’s underpinnings and will sit above the Mokka X and Crossland X in Vauxhall’s line-up. Like the related 3008 and Citroën C5 Aircross – which also shares the same structure - it will compete with the Seat Ateca and Nissan Qashqai.

The Grandland X will be powered by a selection of turbocharged engines from the PSA Group and General Motors ranges. It’s likely that the entry-level variant will have a 1.5-litre petrol and the range will be crowned by a 2.0-litre diesel version. Front-wheel drive will be 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.

Inside, the dashboard and centrally mounted touchscreen will be familiar from existing Vauxhalls, as will some of the kit on the tech list, including wireless smartphone charging, the Onstar connectivity system and a powered tailgate. A heated steering wheel and heated seats will likely be among the most popular options.

The boot can swallow 514 litres of luggage with the seats up and 1,652 litres with them down. This just beats the Seat Ateca and comfortably trumps the Nissan Qashqai, making the Grandland X one of the class’s most spacious offerings.

Vauxhall has gifted the Grandland X with its latest driver assist tech. The list includes adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, park assist and a driver drowsiness detector.

Following its September debut, the Grandland X will go on sale in early 2018, likely priced from around £21,500.

Meet the new (Tiguan-fighting) Opel Grandland X...

Opel has officially revealed the Grandland X, a new compact SUV (closely related to the latest Peugeot 3008) conceived to take the fight to the likes of the Volkswagen Tiguan and Hyundai Tucson.

Set to make its world premiere in Frankfurt in September, the first units will be in showrooms in initial markets in early 2018. As yet, there’s no indication whether the Grandland X will be offered in South Africa (something complicated by Opel’s move into the PSA Group).

Opel describes the new SUV as having “off-road looks”, along with “elevated seating for five people, generous luggage space, good all-round visibility and a raft of safety technologies”.

It measures 4 477 mm long, 1 844 mm wide and 1 636 mm high, and will sit above the Mokka X and recently revealed Crossland X in Opel’s growing SUV range. With a wheelbase of 2 675 mm, the automaker says the newcomer features “plenty of space” for passengers, with the luggage compartment offering “generous room for luggage and sport equipment”.

The brand’s electronic “Grip Control”, which it says “ensures traction in diverse driving situations”, will be offered as an option, as will a two-tone finish with the roof in contrasting black.

Opel has yet to reveal the engine line-up, but we’ll no doubt learn more in the build-up to the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Opel Reveals Grandland X

Opel has shown an all-new SUV in Shanghai. It's called the Grandland X and looks to take on the mid-size SUV brigade.

The Grandland X is set to be the biggest SUV in Opel's current lineup. The Grandland X is some 20 cm longer than the Mokka X, measuring 4.48 m long. It shares its chassis with the French PSA models such as the Peugeot 3008 and the Citroen C5 Aircross.

Much like its newly acquired French connection, the Grandland X is likely to be powered by a small turbocharged petrol unit and a 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine. Whereas details on this aren't available yet, it appears the SUV will be front-wheel-driven with an optional Grip Control system that distributes power to the wheel most in need of it in order to maintain traction.

Opel has detailed a few of the features the new model will receive. Adaptive Forward Lighting LED headlamps with functions such as cornering light, high beam assist and auto levelling take care of lighting requirements. Adaptive Cruise Control with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking, Driver Drowsiness Alert, and Advanced Park assist help in the passive safety department.

The latest generation of IntelliLink is offered for infotainment purposes. The updated system comes with a service assistant called Opel OnStar, which now includes new services such as hotel booking and parking space search. Smartphones can easily be integrated into the infotainment system and charged wirelessly via inductive charging.

The Grandland X appears to be quite spacious inside with room for 5 passengers, although no 7-seater version is mentioned yet. The boot measures 514-litres, which compares similarly with competitors like the Volkswagen Tiguan and Hyundai Tucson.

The newcomer is only slated to go on sale in Europe in 2018. More details on the local availability will be known closer to that time.

Vauxhall Grandland X - Seat Ateca rival on sale, priced from £22,310

Five-seat SUV gets Vauxhall’s latest in car technology; it shares underpinnings with the Peugeot 3008

The Vauxhall Grandland X is on sale priced from £22,310, making it £185 cheaper than the Peugeot 3008 with which it shares underpinnings.

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.

Inside, the dashboard and centrally mounted touchscreen will be familiar from existing Vauxhalls, as will some of the kit on the tech list, including wireless smartphone charging, the Onstar connectivity system and a powered tailgate.

Vauxhall Grandland X 1.2T 130 2017 review

Should I buy one?

To be clear, for those not looking to place any great dynamic demands on their crossover – and they will be in the majority – the Grandland X offers a secure, quiet, well-built and comprehensively equipped space in which to travel. For many, that will be enough.

For us, however, this is a Vauxhall that, above all, fails to rise above the increasingly crowded market into which it now belatedly seeks to insinuate itself. And, yes, we have been here before. All cars must contain at least one reason why they make more sense to a certain sort of person than any other on the market, a distinguishing factor to make it stand out, and in this re-skinned Peugeot 3008, it is hard to see.

Perhaps some of its connectivity solutions will tip the balance, or maybe those who like the idea of the 3008 but find the reality a little too wacky will seek solace in its arms. But we find that the Grandland, while entirely inoffensive, comes to the party not only late but with too little.

Vauxhall Grandland X 1.6D auto 2017 first drive

Should I buy one?

As a car, this is a far better bet than the 1.2 petrol manual version recently tested. While the little petrol motor seems fundamentally unsuited to the car, as does the manual gearbox, the diesel and auto combination appear a perfect match. For high-mileage users looking to hang onto the car for years, the diesel is the slam-dunk choice of the two.

The problem is that, once you’ve paid for the diesel and opted in the auto box, you’re looking at adding almost £2000 to the price of a car that, compared with the Seat Ateca and Nissan Qashqai, doesn’t look that cheap to begin with, however well equipped it may be.

It’s a hassle-free, no-surprises, well-built, functional transport device but, even in a class of unusually modest aspirations, we cannot ignore the fact that others, such as the Ateca in particular, offer so much more and do so from a much more affordable starting point.

10 SA-bound compact SUVs worth waiting for

Opel Grandland X

Due in SA: Early 2018

Whereas the Crossland X is smaller than the Mokka X, the Grandland X will serve as a larger alternative when it goes on sale early next year.

The Grandland X is based on Peugeot’s 3008, but with a design inspired by the Insignia and Astra, and it’ll go head-to-head with the likes of Nissan’s Qashqai and Kia’s Sportage.

Overseas customers get to choose from a 96kW 1.2 turbopetrol and two turbodiesels in the form of an 88kW 1.6 and 132kW 2-litre, but as with most vehicles on this page, we’ll have to wait until the SA launch to get the local low-down. Available features include Adaptive LED headlights, Forward Collision Alert and Advanced Park Assist.

5 Cool Crossovers Coming to SA in 2018

Take a look at 5 eagerly-awaited crossovers that are bound to shake up the South African new vehicle market in 2018!

The market demand for crossovers has risen substantially in recent years and manufacturers are responding with the rollout of exciting new products that will arrive on local shores in 2018. Consumers shopping in this segment have much to look forward to as a number of attractive crossovers are headed for our market. Here are 5 you should look out for next year.

BMW X2

BMW will introduce the new X2 in March 2018 and given its daring styling and brand appeal, it will likely be well-received by buyers in South Africa. From launch, a choice of 2 derivatives equipped with automatic transmissions will be offered.

A front-wheel drive X2 sDrive20i with a 2.0-litre turbopetrol engine with 141 kW / 280 Nm and mated to a 7-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission will be available. A 2.0-litre turbodiesel in the form of the all-wheel drive X2 xDrive20d will develop 140 kW / 400 Nm and will use a 8-speed Steptronic transmission.

Exact pricing and specification will be announced closer to launch.


Jaguar E-Pace

The E-Pace compact crossover/SUV will join the successful F-Pace in Jaguar’s growing SUV stable and can be expected to arrive in the first half of 2018. A range of turbopetrol and turbodiesel engines with varying outputs will be offered along with all-wheel drive capability.

A 2.0-litre turbopetrol engine will develop outputs of 183 kW / 365 Nm and 221 kW / 400 Nm. The 2.0-litre turbodiesel derivatives will offer 110 kW / 380 Nm, 132 kW / 430 Nm and 177 kW / 500 Nm. A 9-speed automatic transmission will be offered on all derivatives.

Exact pricing and specification will be announced closer to launch.


Opel Grandland X

Following on from the recent introduction of the Opel Crossland in South Africa, Opel is set to introduce the larger Grandland X to market in the first half of 2018. In terms of engines, the Grandland X is expected to feature the same 1.6-litre turbopetrol engine found in the Peugeot 3008 with 121 kW and 240 Nm of torque as well as the possibility of a 1.2-litre turbopetrol engine (currently powering the new Crossland X) with 81 kW and 205 Nm of torque. A 2.0-litre turbodiesel is also a possibility for our market. A choice of a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission will be offered.

Exact pricing and specification will be announced closer to launch.


Renault Duster

A new and improved version of Renault’s popular Duster will make landfall in the third quarter of 2018. The new Duster will continue to offer a combination of value-for-money, capability and practicality which has made it so popular locally.

Engines will likely carry over from the current Duster range, which means you can expect the 77 kW / 148 Nm naturally-aspirated 1.6-litre petrol engine and the 80 kW / 250 Nm 1.5-litre turbodiesel engine to be offered in both 4x2 and 4x4 guise with either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.

Exact pricing and specification will be announced closer to launch.


Volvo XC40

Volvo’s highly-anticipated XC40 will arrive in South Africa in the second quarter of 2018 and will look to profit from the acclaim of the larger XC90 sibling. Both 2.0-litre diesel and petrol engines will be offered in D5 and T5 guise with expected outputs of 140 kW / 400 Nm and 187 kW / 350 Nm respectively in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive. The range will be offered with both manual and automatic transmissions. Hybrid and an electric version are also expected at a later stage and Volvo may also introduce a new 3-cylinder petrol engine to the range.

Exact pricing and specification will be announced closer to launch.

So out of interest I decided to watch some reviews and noticed that both the Grandland X and CrossLand X have newer infortainments compared to current intellilink system. Has similar neat UI to the Peugeot system but only difference is there's no homescreen, only hotkeys
