Vauxhall dealers get new SUV, the Grandland X

The Vauxhall Grandland X SUV

Vauxhall dealers can now take orders for the brand's new SUV, the Grandland X, with prices beginning at £22,310.

Rivalling models such as the Nissan Qashqai and Ford Kuga, Grandland X will become the largest SUV in Vauxhall's range, sitting above Mokka X and Crossland X.

At launch, customers will have the choice of two engines – a 1.2-litre turbo petrol with 130PS (NEDC fuel consumption urban 44.1-47.1mpg, extra-urban 57.6-62.8mpg, combined 51.4mpg-55.4mpg, 127-117 g/km CO2) and a 1.6-litre turbo diesel with 120PS (NEDC fuel consumption urban 55.4-60.1mpg, extra-urban 67.3-80.7mpg, combined 61.4-70.6mpg, 118-104 g/km CO2).

Both turbo units can be combined with either the six-speed manual or a friction-optimised six-speed automatic transmission and come with Start/Stop as standard.

After the initial launch, Vauxhall will extend the powertrain offering, with a more powerful top-of-the-range diesel.

The model will be available in five trims: Tech Line, SE, Tech Line Nav, Sport Nav, and Elite Nav.

Standard equipment across the range includes LED daytime running lights, camera-based lane departure warning, road sign recognition, intelligent cruise control, and air conditioning with particulate and odour filter.

The Grandland X also introduces Vauxhall’s IntelliGrip traction control system to the range.

The optional electronic system ensures optimum road grip in diverse driving situations, and adapts the torque distribution to the front wheels depending on which of the five driving modes has been selected.

This ensures the best traction and stable handling on any surface.
