New Opel / Vauxhall Grandland X Unveiled, Goes On Sale Next Year

Following a teaser earlier today, Opel and sister brand Vauxhall have officially unveiled the new Grandland X.

Set to become the company’s largest crossover, the Grandland X features a familiar front fascia with a chrome winglet grille as well as LED-infused headlights. The sporty styling continues further back as the model has been equipped with a prominent character line, a sculpted hood, and plastic body cladding. Lastly at the rear, there’s a tailgate-mounted spoiler and an integrated dual exhaust system.

Overall, the crossover measures 4,477mm (176.2 inches) long, 1,844mm (72.5 inches) wide and 1,636mm (64.4 inches) tall with a wheelbase that spans 2,675mm (105.3 inches). This means the model is 200mm (7.8 inches) longer than the both the Mokka X and Crossland X.

The five-seat interior promises to be relatively comfortable as options include ergonomic front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a wireless smartphone charger. Buyers on a budget will still be treated to an IntelliLink infotainment system and a spacious luggage compartment that can hold up to 1,652 liters (58.3 cubic feet) of cargo.

In terms of safety, Vauxhall will offer an assortment of driving aids including Automatic Emergency Braking, Advanced Park Assist, Driver Drowsiness Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control with pedestrian detection.

The automaker is keeping engine options under wraps but they did confirm the Grandland X will be offered with an optional Grip Control system that has five different driving modes.

The Grandland X will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, before going on sale early next year.

    this should have been the envision

      Agreed. The Envision already looks awfully dated in comparison.

    Too bad the U.S. won’t get it.

      I know too bad this won’t be a Buick.

      Its in between the size of the Envision and Encore, and on a PSA platform. I don’t see a place for it in the US.

      • Zandit75

        This would still be a GM/Opel platform. Give PSA at least a couple of years to get the bodies combined on standard platforms!

          The Grandland and Crossland are on PSA platforms since they have begun collaboraton years ago. Next is the Combo. And later the Corsa originally developped on an Opel platform and delayed to be switched to a PSA platform.

            This is correct, this car is a result of the 2012 PSA/GM collaboration, is based on theEMP2 platform.

        Some of us like smaller vehicles. If the Mokka or the Buick version had more HP and torque, I’d be interested.

      • Kash

        quite a few of the most recent Opel cars have been on platforms developed by PSA and GM jointly, this being one of them. PSA and GM have been working together to develop platforms together for the last few years.

          This is only the second car riding on PSA platform after the Crossland and GM has not developed any platforms with PSA since PSA already had EMP2 and CMP (EMP1) replacing PF1, the stratedy was for GM to co-operate with PSA on B and C segment cars but we now know that really meant Opel must start developing cars on PSA’s platforms since it was being prepared to be handed over to PSA, so GM and PSA knew a few years back what this deal really meant.

      We get the Envision instead.

      That seems fair, Buick.

      • dlinfl

        It would be if they were the same size. However the the Envision is approximately 9″ longer and probably heavier.

        • Tumbi Mtika

          It was sarcasm. I hate the Envision.

  • Matthijs

    Looks fine but a bit generic. Would choose its brother Peugeot 3008

  • haudit

    Handsome in a faintly bland, anodyne sort of way, but much better proportioned, and better executed than the rather stubby looking Crossland X. Oddly, (and in common with the Crossland X) the interior seems to mostly use switchgear derived from the Astra, with the exception of PSA’s generic door handles.

    Well the Envision is slight bigger than this and I don’t think this looks that better than the Envision. Also the Envision only came out in 14′ in China and 16′ in the states so it’s just about time for a refresh so be easy people.
