    Opel debuts new 1,5-litre turbodiesel in Grandland X

    Opel has announced that it will offer a new 1,5-litre turbodiesel engine in its Grandland X, billing it as more powerful and more economical than the 1,6-litre engine it replaces.

    The German automaker, which now falls under the PSA Group banner, says the new powertrain is designed to meet “strict future emissions requirements”.

    The new four-cylinder oil-burner makes 96 kW and 300 N.m (the latter on tap from 1 750 r/min), and in the Grandland X is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The result is a claimed fuel consumption figure of 4,2 L/100 km. Opel says the new engine will also be available with an “advanced new eight-speed automatic transmission”.

    Whether this new turbodiesel will be offered when the Grandland X launches in South Africa in May 2018 remains to be seen.

    In March 2018, the PSA Group announced that it had signed a joint-venture agreement with the Namibian government to create an assembly plant in Walvis Bay, with the Opel Grandland X and Peugeot 3008 set to be the first models assembled at the new factory. And it’s from this plant that SA is expected to source its units.

    Interestingly, by 2020, Opel says it plans to offer the Grandland X as the brand’s first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.

    Vauxhall Grandland X Ultimate 2.0 2018 UK review

    Should I buy one?

    With extra kit added to an already decent package and the welcome extra pep of that 2.0 diesel, this new Grandland X Ultimate is definitely a step forward from previous versions. It has further refined what was already a rounded, competent crossover.

    Trouble is, even if this is the ‘ultimate’ iteration of the Grandland X, it still does little to truly stand out from the cornucopia of competitors. While there are few areas where the Grandland X is anything other than good, there are also few where it truly excels.

    And there's one more catch; the Grandland X Ultimate is a more compelling proposition, but it comes at a price. At £34,040, it’s around £2000 more expensive than a well-equipped 2.0 TDI Seat Ateca, our current crossover hatchback class leader.

    Ultimately, that makes it hard to truly recommend.

    Vauxhall Grandland X Ultimate specification

    Where Surrey, UK Price £34,040; On sale now; Engine 4 cyls, 1997cc turbocharged diesel; Power 175bhp at 3650rpm; Torque 295lb ft at 2000rpm; Gearbox 8-spd automatic; Kerb weight not stated; Top speed 133mph; 0-62mph 8.8sec; Fuel economy 57.4mpg; CO2 128g/km; Rivals Seat Ateca, Peugeot 3008, Nissan Qashqai

    Opel Grandland X hits South Africa: here’s local pricing

    Opel South Africa has announced pricing for its new Grandland X, which slots in above the Mokka X at the top of the German brand’s crossover line-up to take on the likes of the Volkswagen Tiguan and Hyundai Tucson.

    At launch, the local range comprises three derivatives, each drawing its urge from a turbocharged 1,6-litre petrol engine (yes, the one from the Peugeot 3008 with which the latest Opel crossover shares its EMP2 underpinnings) sending 121 kW and 240 N.m to the front wheels. Furthermore, each variant employs a six-speed automatic transmission as standard.

    Pricing starts at R429 000 for the base version of the Grandland X, while the Enjoy derivative costs R36 000 more at R465 000. The flagship Cosmo version, meanwhile, is priced at R565 000, commanding a R100 000 premium over the mid-spec model.

    The Grandland X measures 4 477 mm long, 1 844 mm wide and 1 636 mm high. 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”.

    In March 2018, the PSA Group announced that it had signed a joint-venture agreement with the Namibian government to create an assembly plant in Walvis Bay, with the Grandland X and 3008 set to be the first models assembled at the new factory. And it’s from this plant that SA is expected to source its units.

    We’ll update this story once we learn more about the Grandland X’s local specifications…

    Pricing:

    Opel Grandland X 1,6T AT: R429 000
    Opel Grandland X 1,6T Enjoy AT: R465 000
    Opel Grandland X 1,6T Cosmo AT: R565 000

    I'm guessing the Enjoy spec is going to be the sweet spot of the range

    Opel's Grandland X arrives in SA: prices and specs

    Following its world premiere at last year’s Frankfurt motor show in September, Opel’s Grandland X has landed in South Africa to contest the highly-competitive SUV segment.

    Pitched against the likes of the Ford Kuga, Hyundai Tucson, and Peugeot 3008 (to which it is closely related), the 4.48 metre long SUV comes to market as the third and largest member of the Opel X family, slotting in above the 4.2 metre Crossland X and 4.3 metre Mokka X.

    The front-wheel drive vehicle (all-wheel drive isn’t an option) has seating for five and a roomy 514 litre cargo bay that can expand to 1652 litres with the rear seats folded.

    It rides on independent suspension all around, with a modest ground clearance of 123mm that makes it much more suited to the tarmac than dirt trails. However, it does come with pothole-friendly high-profile tyres.

    Opel South Africa has launched the vehicle in three derivatives, all powered by the same four-cylinder 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine with outputs of 121kW and 240Nm, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Opel quotes a combined town/freeway fuel consumption average of 7 litres per 100km, but doesn't list any performance figures.

    A walk through the range

    Starting the line up is the standard Grandland X 1.6T auto which comes standard with 16" alloy wheels, cloth seats, a colour touchscreen infotainment system that’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible and has six speakers. LED daytime running lighrts, LED tail lights, climate control, cruise control, park assistance, hill start assist and electric windows are also included, as are safety features like tyre pressure monitors, ABS brakes, stability control, and six airbags.

    Next up is the Grandland X 1.6T Enjoy auto which, over and above the features already mentioned, adds leatherette bolsters for the cloth seats, 17" alloys, lane departure warning, and a Sight-and-Light pack which includes rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlamps.

    The range-topping Cosmo model gets a more stylish look with the roof and the side door mirrors in diamond black, aluminium roof rails, and 18” alloy wheels. The dynamic theme is also continued in the interior with leather seats, a leather-covered steering wheel, while standard features include blind spot alert, adaptive LED headlamps, heated seats, hands-free power tailgate, navigation, and advanced park assist that automatically guides the vehicle into a bay.

    Prices include a 5-year/120 000km warranty and 5-year/90 000km service plan, with 15 000km service intervals.

    2020 Vauxhall Grandland X PHEV to lead fast-paced electric growth plans

    Plug-in model is part of heavy investment from PSA Group

    Vauxhall has confirmed that a plug-in hybrid version of the Grandland X will arrive in 2020, placing the electrified variant at the centre of ambitious growth plans laid out by its parent, the PSA Group.

    The brand will launch an electrified version of every model in its range by 2024, starting with an all-electric Corsa in 2019. The Grandland X PHEV is predicted to become Vauxhall’s biggest-selling electrified model when it arrives, meaning its success will prove pivotal in adapting the company’s line-up to the evolving new car market.

    The Grandland X is already Vauxhall’s second-best-selling model after the Corsa, although its current engine range comprises just two turbocharged units: a 1.5-litre diesel and a 1.2-litre petrol. Autocar understands that the Grandland X’s plug-in powertrain will be based on a petrol engine rather than a diesel one; this comes as little surprise given the recent rapid reduction in demand for diesel cars in Europe.

    Vauxhall remains tight-lipped as to which petrol unit will be used. While the Grandland X is available with a turbocharged 1.2 three-cylinder engine, it’s possible that a larger unit will be used for the PHEV model. One candidate could be the boosted 1.4-litre four-pot offered with the Astra that produces up to 148bhp on its own.

    The brand's electrification plans will be supported by heavy investment into the production facilities of its continental sibling, Opel. PSA has already started a five-year investment period that will expand research and development facilities at Opel’s Eisenach, Rüsselsheim and Kaiserslautern sites in Germany.

    This investment will also see Grandland X production extended to Eisenach from mid-2019, when two shifts will be operated in order to meet projected demand. This plant will also handle production of the PHEV version. Currently, the Grandland X is produced in Sochaux in France and Walvis Bay in Namibia.

    The PSA investment will also enhance Vauxhall/Opel’s overall SUV production output, with the segment being of top priority because it represents an unmatched opportunity for growth. PSA already has a strong foothold in the SUV segment, with cars from its brands accounting for 16.9% of market share in Europe so far this year.

    This growth and investment, along with the arrival of the Grandland X PHEV, appears to remove job security concerns at the company's German locations. Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller said: “We will ensure long-term utilisation of our German sites and thus protect employment — and this well into the next decade — with attractive models and high-quality components.”

    The future of Vauxhall’s Luton plant was recently secured when PSA announced that it will continue producing vans — the Vauxhall Vivaro, Citroën Dispatch and Peugeot Expert — for more than a decade. The future of the Ellesmere Port facility, where the Astra is made, will be confirmed in 2020.
