This Is The New Opel & Vauxhall Crossland X Sub-Compact Crossover

Vauxhall, the British alter ego of Opel, revealed the new Crossland X, a new compact crossover that will sit next to the Mokka X as the successor of the Meriva.

It may sound confusing at first, but Opel says that despite the Crossland X’s similar dimensions with the Mokka X, their new model is actually a rival to the likes of the Peugeot 2008 and the Renault Captur while the Mokka X, which is available with AWD, is rivaling the Nissan Juke and the Skoda Yeti.

So some of the key differences between the two siblings are that the new Crossland X will come only as a front-wheel drive model and will sit 70mm lower than the Mokka X, portraying this way its focus on family purposes.

The new Crossland X also shares its underpinnings with the upcoming Peugeot 2008 and the C3 Picasso, and the latest reports suggest that they will also share the latter’s engine range. Vauxhall didn’t share any powertrain details at this point.

The cabin is claimed to offer class-leading space, featuring things like a sliding rear bench and a luggage space of 410lt with the rear seats up and at their furthest position. Tech lovers will be pleased by all infotainment systems available as both of them will be compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while there is also a wireless charging point and the standard OnStar service.

The new Crossland X will also feature a wide range of driver assistance systems, including 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.

Opel’s new baby crossover will be joined in autumn by the bigger Grandland X crossover which is set to rival the Seat Ateca and the Skoda Kodiaq. The new Crossland X will hit the market this summer.

      Maybe has the Adblue inlet there as well.

    As much as they try to explain and justify their reasons for having two models in the exact same segment, I fail to see any point. (And no, one being AWD and the other FWD is NOT a reason.)

    • Agreed. I believe this is suppose to be the MPV-esque crossover whereas the Mokka X is the compact crossover which will continue to be the strongest seller.

    • The thing is, this kind of cars (anything, at least a little, jacked up and “scratch proof”, intended for women who roam free through the urban jungle) nowadays sells like crazy so why not put some more in the market… Opel thought.

      I do agree with you, it seems like there is no point but only sales will tell is there enough room in Opel lineup for two of (the almost) same…

    Well, this is a nice WTF.

  • Gustavo Adriano

    I didn’t know why, but the back seats seems to be solid, and no smooth…

    looks good in and out

  • Lottaquokka

    I wonder when we will see a return of the Vinyl Roof. Its a wonder Citroen hasnt bought that back.They seem to specialise in hideous add ons to make their vehicles even more unsaleable.

      smoking your socks again?

  • Ilbirs

    Some art director working for GM Europe forgot to flip the pictures when the Crossland X is in its Vauxhall spec, as can be seen by the steering wheel on the left side and the wipers not going from left to right.

    • ToniCipriani ✓pǝᴉɟᴉɹǝʌ

      They didn’t flip it. It started out as an Opel and just photoshopped the Vauxhall badge over it. Every damn press photo for Vauxhall are like that. Probably just to save time because “AIRBAG”, the gauges and the centre console screens will also need to be flipped.

    • Lukaku

      The wipers are correct for a LHD car. They just photoshopped Vauxhall badges on an opel crossland X

    Talk about boring. 😪

  • Evo45

    It’s more like a minivan, also I find the rear a bit weird.

  • Knotmyrealname

    Looks a bit like an i3 at the back?

    “their new model is actually a rival to the likes of the Peugeot 2008 and the Renault Captur while the Mokka X, which is available with AWD, is rivaling the Nissan Juke and the Skoda Yeti.”

    ???

    Yet more BS from Opel/Vauxhall marketing team. In my universe those cars are all in the same class.

  • Matthijs

    I kinda like it actually. Some SUV’s in its class look like cartoons and this looks quite normal but with a nice modern touch. The rear looks a bit too high and small though but thats quite common in this segment

  • MJ Coffey

    Nice!

  • TheHake

    “the bigger Grandland X crossover which is set to rival the Seat Ateca and the Skoda Kodiaq” – HUH??? The Seat is small and Skoda is large…

  • Nice but nothing special ,Ugly interior !
