What is it?
The Vauxhall Grandland X is the company’s entry into the very tough mid-sized SUV/crossover market.
Good specification levels, moderate off-road capabilities, practical design
The Grandland X is a critical new car for Vauxhall. The company expects that it will become its second-most popular model for retail customers after the Corsa supermini, and will be crucial in ensuring buyers continue to flock into Vauxhall showrooms for the next few years.
Vauxhall has set its prices higher than many of its major rivals, but is offering a lot of kit for your money in return. Safety kit is very good on most models, although the base model SE misses out on key accident avoidance technology like autonomous emergency braking.
Perfectly competent although never really compelling, the Grandland X ticks all the boxes that modern family cars need to tick. It’s comfortable, practical and well equipped for the money, and Vauxhall is expected to be competitive on finance offers once the Grandland X hits showrooms. It’s certainly impressive, but then so are most of the cars in this class.
