Crisp and compact on the outside, very spacious and versatile on the inside, with trendy two-tone paintwork and a cool SUV look – that is Opel’s all-new Crossland X. This versatile urban crossover model (Crossover Utility Vehicle) is the second member of the Opel X family in the B-segment where it joins the sporty bestseller, the Mokka X. The larger Grandland X will be launched in the compact class (C-segment) later this year.
With the Crossland X, Opel thus kicks off its product offensive “7 in 17”, which will see seven new models launched in 2017, with two X-newcomers that bring together the best of different worlds: the bold design and the virtues of a SUV, with the attributes facilitating an urban lifestyle. They are the Opel cars with the certain X-tra.
Compared with the Mokka X, which comes with optional four-wheel-drive for occasional off-road outings, the Crossland X is predestined for urban areas with its crisp exterior dimensions while also being perfectly suitable for a shopping spree at the organic farm shop or for a holiday trip to the countryside.
With a length of 4.21 metres, the Crossland X is 16cm shorter than the Astra hatchback while at the same time 10cm higher. The occupants can therefore enjoy the elevated seating position and resulting excellent overview. Buyers looking for an even better experience can improve the feeling of space even further with the optional panoramic glass roof.
Furthermore, the newcomer offers outstanding innovations that make everyday driving safer, more comfortable and easier. Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) with full LED headlights, head-up display and the 180-degree Panoramic Rear View Camera along with Advanced Park Assist, Forward Collision Alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking, Driver Drowsiness System, Lane Keep Assist, Speed Sign Recognition and Side Blind Spot Alert are just some examples.
The Crossland X also comes with Opel’s outstanding connectivity, thanks to Opel OnStar as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible IntelliLink infotainment technology, including a large colour touchscreen up to 8-inch in size.
Both the driver and front passenger can take advantage of the award-winning, AGR-certified (Aktion Gesunder Rücken) ergonomic seats, with Opel being the only car manufacturer to offer such comfort in the segment (in both the Crossland X and the Mokka X).
Elsewhere, the trunk volume of 410 litres (with backseats up) is class-leading. In addition, passengers in the rear have the possibility to adjust their seating position by 150mm in longitudinal direction, thus either increasing legroom or the capacity of the luggage compartment. This makes the Crossland X even more versatile.
