With a sporty design and rugged looks, Vauxhall’s new SUV, 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 is the largest SUV in Vauxhall’s range, offering even more cabin space than the 20 centimetre-shorter Mokka X and Crossland X.
The new model will be a genuine contender in the booming SUV segment and is aimed at retail and true fleet customers, with a 75:25 split in favour of the former. True fleet is the traditional user-chooser company car driver, the larger fleets excluding rental and Motability. Sitting at the top of Vauxhall’s X family of SUVs, the Grandland X will compete with rivals including the Nissan Qashqai, Ford Kuga and Kia Sportage among others.
Available to order now, the Grandland X is priced from £22,310 on-the-road and will arrive in Vauxhall showrooms in December. Standard equipment includes LED daytime running lights, camera-based lane departure warning, road sign recognition, intelligent cruise control, and air conditioning with particulate and odour filter.
The Grandland X also introduces Vauxhall’s innovative IntelliGrip traction control system to the range. The optional electronic system ensures optimum road grip in diverse driving situations, and adapts the torque distribution to the front wheels depending on which of the five driving modes has been selected. This ensures the best traction and stable handling on any surface.
Vauxhall’s OnStar service is standard across the range, giving drivers exceptional connectivity when on the move, while also providing a personal assistant service, stolen vehicle assistance and automatic crash response.
