Expert Rating

Summary


The Vauxhall Grandland (nee Grandland X) is a medium-sized SUV/crossover, which was launched in late 2017 and is based on the Peugeot 3008. It has quickly become one of the most popular models in the Vauxhall family.

Initially launched as the Vauxhall Grandland X in 2018 – in line with Vauxhall’s naming practice of giving all its crossover models an ‘X’ suffix – the model was updated in late 2021 with Vauxhall’s new corporate styling themes. At the same time, the X was dropped and the model renamed Grandland. The same has applied to the facelifted Crossland and all-new Mokka models.

The Grandland X received average to good reviews from the UK motoring media in its first few years, and the updated Grandland seems to be continuing that trend. It has been praised for its family-friendly practicality and safety features, but overall it is generally not regarded to be as good as several rivals in a fiercely competitive sector of the new car market. As of March 2022, its overall Expert Rating of 57% puts it in the midfield of its segment, but a long way behind the class leaders.

The first updated Grandland models started arriving in the UK in Spring 2022. We expect to see several reviews of the updated model published in coming months, so its Expert Rating score may move slightly either up or down as motoring titles assess the latest version. However, since the changes are more cosmetic than mechanical or structural, we don’t expect the rating to move significantly in either direction.
