    New Opel Crossland X: Stylish for the City with SUV Coolness

    Opel
    2017-01-18


    - X-tremely cool: All-new crossover model to be launched in booming CUV/SUV segment
    - New X family: Opel Crossland X joins Opel Mokka X bestseller
    - X-tra casual: Elevated seating position, spacious interior and high flexibility
    - X-factor technologies: Opel OnStar, great infotainment and numerous assistance systems
    - X-act overview: Head up display, 180 degree rear view camera and AFL LED headlights
    - X-clusive appearance: Premiere at large Opel vernissage in Berlin on February 1



    Rüsselsheim. Crisp and compact on the outside, very spacious and versatile on the inside with trendy two-tone paintwork and a cool SUV look – that is the all-new Opel Crossland X. This versatile urban crossover model (Crossover Utility Vehicle) is the second member of the Opel X family in the B-segment where it joins the sporty bestseller, the Mokka X. The larger Grandland X will be launched in the compact class (C-segment) later this year. Opel thus kicks off the product offensive “7 in 17”, which will see seven new models launched in 2017, with two X-newcomers that bring together the best of different worlds: Cars with the bold design, the virtues of a SUV and the attributes facilitating an urban lifestyle. They are the Opel models with the certain X-tra. The Opel Crossland X will celebrate its debut in Berlin on February 1.

    Compared with the Opel Mokka X, which comes with optional four-wheel drive for occasional off-road outing, the new Opel Crossland X is predestined for urban areas with its crisp exterior dimensions while also being perfectly suitable for a shopping spree at the organic farm shop or for a holiday trip to Tuscany. With a length of 4.21 meters, the new Crossland X is 16 centimeters shorter than an Astra while at the same time 10 centimeters higher. The occupants can thus enjoy the elevated seating position and resulting excellent overview. Buyers looking for an even better experience can improve the feeling of space even further with the optional panoramic glass roof.

    Furthermore, the newcomer offers outstanding innovations that make every day driving safer, more comfortable and easier. Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) with full LED headlights, head up display and the 180-degree Panoramic Rear View Camera along with Advanced Park Assist, Forward Collision Alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking[1], Driver Drowsiness System, Lane Keep Assist, Speed Sign Recognition and Side Blind Spot Alert are just some examples. The new Crossland X also comes with Opel-typical outstanding connectivity thanks to Opel OnStar as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible IntelliLink infotainment technology including up to 8-inch large color touchscreens.

    Both the driver and the front seat passenger can take advantage of the award-winning and AGR-certified (Aktion Gesunder Rücken) ergonomic seats with Opel being the only manufacturer to offer such comfort in the segment (in both the Crossland X and the Mokka X). Elsewhere, trunk volume of 410 liters – without folding the rear seats down – is class leading. In addition, passengers in the rear have the possibility to adjust their seating position by 150 millimeters in longitudinal direction, thus either increasing legroom or the capacity of the luggage compartment. This makes the Crossland X even more versatile.

    “Demand for small SUV and crossover models tailored for urban traffic is increasing significantly. The Crossland X with its combination of cool, SUV-inspired design, outstanding connectivity and high practicality represents a second strong competitor in this vehicle class next to our sporty Mokka X,” said Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann. “Our agile Crossland X delivers on driving pleasure while oozing urban lifestyle, making it perfect for the city and escapes to the countryside.”

    The CUV/SUV B-segment is booming with sales figures are up five-fold since 2010. One of the bestsellers and thus one of the trendsetters is the Opel Mokka X. The Crossland X will now add further stimulation to this new, rapidly growing segment situated below the established compact class and ensure additional growth of the Opel brand.

    68mm shorter, 10mm narrower and 56mm lower (4280 x 1765 x 1590) than Mokka X makes it very small, even by European standards.

    Didn't looked it up but it sounds like Meriva size.

    Yes, but not a re-badge. Both are truly recognizable as a Peugeot or Opel. For those who don't know how the Peugeot 2008 looks:

    With Meriva, Mokka X and Crossland X Opel is well positioned for the German market, imho.

    No - it's a re-skinned, re-engined Peugeot 308 using the PSA EMP2 platform - and built by Peugeot for GM!

    At least that's what's been previewed by Vauxhall - but maybe it's just the Grandland X that's based on EMP2, with Crossland X based on PSA PF1 platform, so it would relate to the 2008 and 208.

    I thought Meriva was being replaced by Crossland X ?

    That was the plan. Sales are declining but in Germany Meriva is still top in the segment afaik, hence some press rumours about a "new" Meriva. But I see GolfBravo is online, maybe he can tell us more.

    Looks nice!

    What is Peugeot's quality vs. Opel's quality? Is one brand better at building quality vehicles that the other or are they on par?

    All French brands have a poor reputation on electrics which doesn't bode well on modern cars - Peugeot used to have an unbreakable reputation long ago but that went down when they bought the troubled Chrysler Europe for $1.

    I don't have any accurate figures.

    For the interior and depending on trim level, the German media sees the newest Opel models as nearly as good as VW (that's good ). Peugeot isn't bad either, but not on par with the best in class. The DS premium line from Peugeot on the other hand...
