Review

This is the new Vauxhall Crossland X – a crossover that rivals the likes of the Peugeot 2008 and Nissan Juke.

Of course, Vauxhall already has a small crossover– the Mokka X – but unlike it, the Crossland X is two-wheel drive only, has smaller wheels and a ride height that’s 70mm lower than its sibling.

It is, says Vauxhall, a crossover that has been designed for the city, a statement backed up by the car’s ever-so-slightly smaller dimensions – it’s 82mm shorter than a Mokka X – that offers owners “greater convenience while driving and manoeuvring in towns and cities”. We would wager few people will spot the difference.

Passenger comfort is said be a priority – the two front seats have been certified by AGR, who specialise in making them uber comfy and the rear seats slide forwards and backwards for more or less boot space or kneeroom. The car also has a raised driving position – it’s 120mm taller than a Vauxhall Astra – so you get a decent view out, too.

Available kit includes an 180-degree panoramic rear-view camera, advanced park assist, forward collision alert with pedestrian detection and autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, speed sign recognition and a side blind-spot alert system.
