While Crossland X is the replacement for Meriva, Grandland X is produced to replace Zafira MPV and is set to compete with a high SUV class with the likes of Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Kodiaq. This C-segment SUV takes pride in its comfort, practicality, and the strong yet elegant visual.
Vauxhall Grandland X Specifications
Exterior, Interior design
Vauxhall promised that new Vauxhall / Opel Grandland X Crossover would get raised seating position with better all-around possibility as well as more luggage space thanks to its large size.
Besides that and the fact that Grandland X is going to have the usual quality and characteristic of large SUV, the company doesn’t provide any further details about the design. Furthermore, it is still not confirmed. But, the chance is high that this 4.5 meter SUV will get 7-seat in the cabin.
Even though the information about the design is very limited, we can gain important hint from the short video Vauxhall posted earlier. The radio antenna, C-pillar, and the shape or the rear spoiler in Grandland X is different with what comes in Crossland X. Therefore, we can conclude that Grandland X will get a totally different design from Crossland X and it is not a larger version of the compact SUV.
