The SUV party doesn’t seem to show signs of retiring any time soon. If anything, more patrons are joining the party in larger numbers every day.
The Vauxhall Grandland X from Opel is therefore only a little behind the pack but has the chance to showcase how well it can dance to the SUV tune. It comes in the footsteps of its close cousins Crossland X and Mokka X.
Nonetheless, it is still the largest in the Vauxhall lineage, rivaling the Nissan Qashqai, Peugeot 3008 and Skoda Karoq. It is seen as much closer to Peugeot 3008 given that the two cars were developed in the form of a joint venture and share DNA.
The Opel Grandland X is appropriately sized and designed for a modern mid-size SUV. It also brings around several engine options with the base engine being a 1.2-liter that generates 130 horsepower and pulls 169 pound-feet of torque.
Diesel engines are packed in the form of a bigger 1.5-liter that sheds also sheds out 130 horsepower but increases torque to 221 pound-feet. If you pick the 2.0-liter diesel, it will give you no less than 177 horsepower with 295 pound-feet of torque.
The standard gearbox of choice for the Grandland X is a six-speed manual transmission, with the top trim of them getting an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Opel Grandland X isn’t coming to challenge the status quo or rewrite history.
However, it has attempted to be the best version of itself and has the ability to perform above average even in a highly competitive category. It is a suitable choice, particularly for family-oriented buyers.
