Described by Opel as crisp and compact on the outside and spacious and versatile on the inside with trendy two-tone paintwork, the new Crossland X has a cool SUV look.
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 big seller, the Mokka X.
The larger Grandland X will be launched in the compact class (C-segment ) later this year. These two X-newcomers bring together the best of different worlds - cars with the bold design, the virtues of an SUV and the attributes facilitating an urban lifestyle. Opel claims they are the models with the certain X-tra.
Compared with the Opel Mokka X, which comes with optional four-wheel drive for occasional off-road outings, the new Opel Crossland X is predestined for urban areas with its crisp exterior dimensions while also being perfectly suitable for a shopping spree or for a holiday trip to France.
With a length of 4.21 metres, the new Crossland X is 16 centimetres shorter than an Astra, while at the same time 10 centimetres 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, Opel boasts the newcomer offers outstanding innovations that make every day driving safer, more comfortable and easier. Innovative 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, 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 colour touchscreens.
Opel cars with OnStar on board have been on the roads for about 18 months now. Currently, every second new Opel in Europe is equipped with the groundbreaking system. The personal connectivity and service assistant offer includes automatic crash response, vehicle diagnostics, stolen vehicle assistance and a Wi-Fi hotspot for outstanding connectivity.
Opel boasts that in the last 18 months Opel OnStar has already registered more than nine million interactions, around half of those via smartphones and the myOpelApp. Now Opel OnStar subscribers can look forward to further services such as hotel room booking or parking spot search via an OnStar advisor.
By the end of the year, Opel plans to offer OnStar in 33 countries across Europe and in 23 languages.
“Demand for small SUV and crossover models tailored for urban traffic is increasing significantly, says Opel CEO Dr Karl-Thomas Neumann. "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.
“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 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.
