    Opel Grandland X Confirmed for 2017 Debut, To Replace Zafira

    Opel Grandland X Confirmed for 2017 Debut, To Replace Zafira

    As you might have heard by now, the Meriva B will bite the dust to make way for a compact-sized crossover. Dubbed Crossland X, the new kid on the block will be joined by a slightly bigger brother in the form of the Opel Grandland X. The latter is set to replace Opel’s/Vauxhall's large family hauler, the third-gen Zafira.

    2018 Opel Grandland X next to Crossland X and Mokka XJust like the Crossland X, the Opel Grandland X is expected to make use of the PSA EMP2 platform. So to speak, this means that the half-brother of Peugeot’s 3008 blurs the line between the compact and mid-size crossover segments. Until General Motors’ European division debuts an Insignia Grand Sport-based mid-size crossover later in the decade, the Grandland X will act as the largest crossover in the automaker’s range. Confused? So am I.

    Opel CMO Tina Muller tells that “Grandland X stands for an adventurous type always prepared to explore something new – in both an urban or rural environment. Our new crossover model looks fantastic and will help excite new customers for the Opel brand.” Expected to debut at next year’s edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Grandland X is likely to pride itself on a 7-seat variant. Think Peugeot 5008, the 7-seater brother of the Peugeot 3008.

    That's what we used to call the Supermarket Grand Union when I was growing up.
    Strange name for a vehicle

    Why work on this CUV joint venture with PSA, when GM already has the Equinox, Terrain and Envision to choose from? Or even the XT5?

    Europe needs a 7-seat compact CUV - the US CUVs don't generally accomodate 7 until much bigger.

    Grandland X is replacing the Zafira but still leaving space for a mid-size 7-seat SUV above it

    Opel/Vauxhall's future line-up is all smoke and mirrors at present, at least publicly - this article states that in 2017 the Crossland X and Grandland X, both PSA-based, will be joined by 3 Insignia variants (Grand Sport, Sports Tourer and Country Tourer) and a PSA-based commercial http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/ne...e-skoda-kodiaq

    "Grandland" sounds VERY much like a name the Chinese would put on a western car.

    Interesting little outfit anyway. Too bad America is so befuddled by such things.

    Yes, it is a very clunky name. Just glancing at "Opel Grandland", I would generally just say "Old Grand-dad". That flows much better (no pun intended).
