Vauxhall’s forte has always been the mid-range, mid-size segments and so staying within this playground they are introducing a new crossover called the Vauxhall Crossland X. Built to rival the likes of Peugeot 2008 and Renault Captur, the X slots below the Mokka in the car maker’s lineup.
The small crossover measures in at 4.21 metres but it is tall and has an elevated driving position so while the car is intended for urban dwelling, it’ll give its driver the sense they are in command of something more robust than all the sedans and hatchbacks. Vauxhall Crossland X also has a spacious cabin with plenty of light, something the car maker likens to a Tardis.
Designed to take care of the needs of an average urban family, Vauxhall Crossland X has a 410 liter boot with the rear seats up which should be enough for monthly grocery shopping or taking the kids to soccer practice and the like. You will probably have to leave early for the practice though, because the Crossland is just not going to be fast. Chances are the most potent engine it’ll get is a 1.2 turbo.
The vehicle is also up to date equipment-wise, boasting OnStar, as well as IntelliLink infotainment systems, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other highlights in terms of features include Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) with full-LED headlamps, Head up Display, 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, Side blind-spot alert, Cruise control with speed limiter, Three-level Driver Drowsiness System., Heated steering wheel and heated windscreen, and Keyless open and start.
