    2021 Opel Crossland Facelift

    Introduced in 2017 the Crossland X was developed under cooperation between GM and PSA. Crossland replaced the Opel Meriva which had no siblings at GM. With this facelift the Crossland gets the new Opel Visor front end first introduced by the new Opel Mokka. Nothing changed much on the inside. It's still GM from the look of it.


    Link to the press release: New Opel Crossland: Much More Than Just a Pretty Face

    - Early adopter: Crossland features unique face premiered by new Opel Mokka
    - Sweeping change: Opel Vizor covers whole fascia, integrating grille and headlights
    - For enthusiasts: Sporty GS Line+ trim with distinctive black and red colour scheme
    - Outstanding versatility: Sliding rear seats and up to 1,255 litres of trunk volume
    - Excellent comfort: Optionally with new ergonomic, AGR-certified, alcantara seats
    - Dynamic drive: Opel engineers further develop chassis and steering
    - For every surface: Now with IntelliGrip adaptive traction control
    - Euro 6d across the board: All petrol and diesel units meet strictest emissions standard
    - Get ready: Order books open soon, cars at dealerships across Europe in early 2021

    2021 Crossland X





    2018 Crossland X

    Re: 2021 Opel Crossland Facelift

    For those who are interested in how the platform siblings at PSA look like:

    2019 DS 3 Crossback


    2020 Citroen C3


    2020 Peugeot 2008


    2021 Opel Crossland



    I should add the new Mokka. Crossland and Mokka, while riding on the same platform and using the same engines, both have different target audience. Mokka is also closer to the DS and Peugeot model as you can see.

    2021 Opel Mokka

    The Opel definitely got the looks in the family of these cousins.

    The Citroen is, ah, um..... unique. What are those rectangles on the door? I do like the Peugot and Opel.

    Airbumps are Citroen's take on body protection https://www.driving.co.uk/news/news-...oen-c4-cactus/

    Interesting, not sure if the cure is as bad as the sickness. I'm sure they work to reduce scrapes and scratches, but seems to be exchanging one eyesore for another.

    They certainly wouldn't be my choice.

    I am so glad I wasn't born French. Just imagine thinking those horrifically ugly cars were normal looking and the normal looking cars were ugly......Why it'd be like that one episode of The Twilight Zone....


    The Opel is still trash though.

    Only available as a mk1 on the Epsilon II platform - someone in Detroit screwed the E2XX version by "forgetting" to allow room for the RHD version, without those lucrative RHD sales from Vauxhall then Opel couldn't afford the LHD version - so no Buick version.

    The 2.8T V6 is a single turbo engine. In the (heavy) Insignia OPC the engine felt underpowered and was thirsty. The next gen Insignia will ride on the second generation multi energy platform from PSA. Unlike the actual version which does support a ICE, PHEV or BEV configuration, the new one will only be available as BEV and PHEV.

    The US's EPA tests have always been more realistic than the EU's NEDC or WLTP/RDE tests - remember that conversion from litres/100 km to MPG will likely use Imperial gallons which are bigger than US gallons, so give a higher figure.

    France has compensating factors for the weird cars - French accents on women and outstanding food.
