Vauxhall has revealed images and more details of the Crossland X SUV, set to replace the Meriva in the brand's line-up.
While the Crossland X’s recently-launched sibling, the Mokka X, has all-wheel-drive capability, is 70mm higher and has larger wheels for buyers with a taste for adventure.
At 4.21 metres in length the Crossland X is more compact than the Mokka X, and 16cm shorter than the Astra Hatch, while being 10cm taller.
Vauxhall is pitting the car against rivals including the Renault Captur and Peugeot 2008.
Luggage capacity is 410 litres with the rear seats up, and adjustable rear seats allows the luggage capacity to be increased up to 520 litres if additional leg room is not required.
Tech features include a 180-degree panoramic rear-view camera, advanced park assist, forward collision alert with pedestrian detection and autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, speed sign recognition and side blind-spot alert, among others. The range includes Vauxhall OnStar, as well as IntelliLink infotainment systems, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, with an up to eight-inch colour touchscreen.
An extensive petrol/diesel engine portfolio with manual and automatic transmissions will be available, details of which have not yet been revealed.
“Crossland X is as multi-talented as it is stylish,” said Rory Harvey, Vauxhall’s chairman and managing director.
“It will appeal to buyers with families who demand agility and convenience in urban driving, but with enough comfort and performance to cover long distances at the drop of a hat. Our customers’ expectations are changing, so the timing is perfect for an additional model in the Vauxhall range, which caters for a new breed of buyer.”
Since 2012, the Mokka has found more than 120,000 buyers in the UK, its single biggest market in Europe.
