Summary


The Vauxhall Crossland is the smallest SUV/crossover in the Vauxhall family, although it’s not much smaller than the Mokka. It was launched in early 2017 as the Crossland X, and a major facelift in early 2021 saw the ‘X’ dropped from the name.

The Crossland was is the first model in the Vauxhall range to share most of its underpinnings with similar vehicles from its new parent company, the French-owned PSA Group that purchased Vauxhall and Opel from General Motors. In this case, the Crossland is based on the same platform as the Peugeot 2008 and Citroën C3 Aircross.

The Vauxhall Crossland X received generally average reviews from the UK motoring media, although things have improved slightly for the updated Crossland. It has received praise for being practical and good value for money, but has been criticised for being unrefined and disappointing to drive.

As of February 2024, the Vauxhall Crossland has an overall New Car Expert Rating of D, with a score of 57%. It gets points for having low CO2 emissions and running costs, but its safety rating has now expired and media reviews have been poor.

Notes on safety rating

The Vauxhall Crossland (then known as the Crossland X) was crash tested by Euro NCAP back in 2017 and awarded a five-star rating. However, this rating expired in January 2024 and is no longer valid as the car no longer meets the standards required for such a rating. This is normal practice, as Euro NCAP reviews its ratings on most cars annually with most ratings expiring after about six or seven years.

However, if you are comparing a used Crossland (or Crossland X) to vehicles of similar age, whose ratings will have probably also expired, its safety rating score is still useful.

The Vauxhall Crossland is a relatively affordable small SUV to own and run, according to whole-life cost numbers provided exclusively to The Car Expert by our data partner, Clear Vehicle Data.

Fuel consumption is only average for the petrol models, which is disappointing compared to most of its main rivals. The diesel models are no longer available new, but produce much better economy.

The good news is that servicing and insurance costs are exemplary, which will be a relief when these bills roll around each year.
