Opel is expanding the powertrain lineup of its Crossland X subcompact crossover with the addition of a six-speed automatic transmission as an option on the range-topping, 1.2-liter turbo petrol engine.
The optional auto ‘box enables the Crossland X 1.2 Turbo to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 198 km/h (123 mph). In this configuration, the three-cylinder direct injection gasoline engine produces 130 PS (128 hp) at 5,500 rpm and 230 Nm (170 lb-ft) at 1,750 rpm.
Compared to the version equipped with the six-speed manual, the automatic transmission increases fuel consumption by 0.3 liters/100 km on the NEDC combined cycle. On the WLTP cycle, average fuel economy is as low as 6.6 liters/100 km with corresponding CO2 emissions of 145 g/km.
The Crossland X powered by the 1.2-liter three-pot equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission starts at €23,320 (approximately $26k) in Germany. For the money, customers also get several assistance systems as standard, including cruise control with speed limiter and intelligent speed adaptation, hill start assist, lane keep assist, speed sign recognition and driver drowsiness alert.
The list of standard features also consists of multi-adjustable driver and front passenger seats, chrome-trimmed leather steering wheel, air conditioning with footwell heating and front and rear power windows. Also standard is the Radio R 4.0 IntelliLink infotainment system with 7-inch colour touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
As options, customers can also equip the Crossland X with forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, 180-degree rearview camera and automatic park assist.
