Vauxhall’s new Mokka X will be joined by an exciting new crossover sibling in early 2017, as the UK market continues to embrace the growing trend towards sporty and spacious crossover and SUV products.
Named the Crossland X, the newcomer is as multi-talented as it is stylish, and will appeal to buyers with families who demand agility and convenience in urban driving, but with enough comfort and performance to cover long distances at the drop of a hat. As a true urban crossover, the Crossland X delivers bold design features in a compact, balanced package. The model’s length of 4,212mm, coupled with width of 1,765mm and height of 1,590mm, give it a dominant stance and balanced proportions. It is the latest model in the Vauxhall range to embrace the company’s design philosophy ‘Sculptural artistry meets technical precision’, giving it a rugged, yet sophisticated, appearance.
‘Our customers’ expectations are changing, so the timing is perfect for an additional model in the Vauxhall range, which caters for a new breed of buyer,’ said Rory Harvey, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director. ‘The Crossland X will sit next to the Mokka X in our range, but their identities will be well-defined, and we anticipate that each will have its own following. More will be revealed at the start of next year, but we’re excited about the way Vauxhall’s crossover and SUV family is shaping up – and there’s more to come!’
Vauxhall’s signature LED daytime running lights. Chrome accents coupled with AFL LED headlights give the perception of extra width and additional features taken from larger SUV models give the model a confident appearance. The crisp side lines and ‘floating roof’, which visually separates the lower and upper section of the vehicle lengthen the Crossland X. The prominent rear of the Crossland X makes a clear SUV statement with its visible underbody protection. The highly-mounted split rear lights also feature the ‘double-wing’ graphic and form the intersection between the boot lid and the downwards sloping roofline.
The interior of the Crossland X offers sculptural design and precision, with the instrument panel and centre stack horizontally aligned to the driver for added functionality. High quality finishes are provided with chrome accents around the cluster and air vents, while the centrepiece of the interior is the eight-inch colour touchscreen.
With either Radio R 4.0 IntelliLink or Navi 5.0 IntelliLink infotainment systems, both compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the Crossland X keeps the driver connected with the unit’s seamless integration into the centre console. The latest wireless inductive charging is also available for added convenience and a reduction in wires, and the inclusion of Vauxhall OnStar^ provides a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to seven devices to keep all occupants connected while on the go.
Driver and passenger experience is not only heightened by the intelligent design and infotainment system, but with the model’s comfortable seating and spacious layout. The Crossland X features first class ergonomic seats for the driver and front passenger to make long journeys comfortable, and give generous leg room.
High levels of flexibility are also offered throughout the model, largely thanks to the sliding rear seats. Able to move forwards or backwards up to 150mm, the 60/40 split folding seats provide additional leg room to the rear passengers for added comfort, or alternatively can be moved to create additional luggage space up to a class-leading 520 litres. When the rear seats are folded down completely, luggage capacity increases to an impressive 1,255 litres, with the wide number of permutations in between making the Crossland X capable of carrying a wide range of everyday items as required.
