This month Vauxhall have unveiled the first images of their new SUV which is set to appear in showrooms this summer. The Crossland X shares similarities with the popular Mokka X but the newer vehicle is set to appeal to families.

The Crossland X has Tardis-like cabin space with the option for rear passengers to adjust their seating position to increase leg room. This feature also allows for an increase in the rear luggage space which sits at an impressive 1255 litres when all the rear seats are down.

This vehicle looks sleek and compact on the outside and is set to compete with rivals Renault Captur and Peugeot 2008. At just 4.21 metres in length, the Crossland X is smaller than the popular Mokka X and its height is a full 16cm shorter than the Astra Hatch. However, the size of the vehicle do not impact on driver viewpoint as the Crossland X's elevated seating position is raised 10cm above the Astra's.


While the Crossland X is designed to make driving more comfortable, this vehicle certainly carries many safety features that will appeal to buyers. The car includes a 180-degree panoramic rear-view camera, advance park assist, speed sign recognition and autonomous emergency braking amongst its features.

The Crossland X will also feature an eight-inch colour touchscreen. This enables drivers to benefit from the high quality connectivity that is becoming the standard in new Vauxhall models. This SUV will feature Vauxhall OnStar as well as IntelliLink infotainment systems compatible with both Android and Apple technology.

Whilst no details about what is under the bonnet have yet been released, both petrol and diesel engines will appear in showrooms and buyers will be able to choose between manual and automatic transmissions.

More to come...

The Crossland X is the first Vauxhall vehicle to be unveiled in what is set to be a busy year for the company. 2017 will see the arrival of four more Vauxhall vehicles including the larger Grandland X which will also compete in the compact SUV class.

The arrival of the Crossland X this summer will see a stylish vehicle that carries many features to appeal to new buyers. Rory Harvey, Vauxhall's Chairman and Managing Director said, "Our customers' expectations are changing, so the timing is perfect for an additional model in the Vauxhall range".
