First images of new Vauxhall Crossland
October 8, 2020
Vauxhall has released the first images of its new Crossland model which show that the compact SUV is following on from the latest Mokka in adopting the brand’s bolder, design language.
The new-look Crossland (the X suffix has been ditched) features the company’s ‘Vizor’ front-end styling with a single module running across the face of the car housing LED lights and the new, recently redesigned Griffin logo.
Move to the back and you will notice dark-tinted taillights and a fresh high-gloss black tailgate surface that help to give the Crossland a wider appearance.
There are also new front and rear skid plates, chrome door mouldings along with a fresh range of 16 and 17-inch wheels. Sporty SRi models will boast a black roof, a red window accent along with 17-inch alloys.
Inside the spacious vehicle is an eight-inch touchscreen offering full Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, while ergonomic front seats deliver enhanced comfort and support. The rear seats slide by up to 150mm, helping to increase the boot space from 410 to 520 litres. And with the rear seats folded, the new Crossland offers 1,255 litres of boot space.
Powering the Crossland will be two 1.2-litre turbo petrol engines with either 83PS or 130PS or, for those who prefer diesel, there will be 1.5-litre turbodiesels with either 110PS or 120PS.
Safety features will include the likes of forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian recognition, a panoramic rear-view camera with a 180-degree view and driver drowsiness alert.
The car boasts chassis improvements designed to deliver better driving dynamics and comfort, alongside a new steering column intermediate shaft, which Vauxhall says will improve steering feel and handling.
Order books for the new Crossland open later this year with deliveries expected in early 2021.
