The new Vauxhall Crossland will be available later this year, but the carmaker has given a preview of its new SUV offering now.

These are the first official pictures of the facelifted Vauxhall Crossland and there’s a bold new look to enjoy.

The new front-end features a gloss black radiator grille, and a new vented front bumper, and the firm is dropping the ‘X’ suffix from the name.

Handling has also been boosted with new dampers and springs, and the steering system has been designed to deliver a more rewarding drive with better feedback.

Crossland will offer a great car leasing opportunity

While prices have still to be confirmed, the Crossland will offer a great car leasing opportunity for those who want a good-looking and well-equipped compact SUV.

The SUV features the firm’s new Vizor design, which we have already seen on the all-new Vauxhall Mokka.

The new Crossland is available with a range of efficient diesel and petrol engines, including a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol with two power outputs of 83 PS or 130 PS.

The 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine offers either 10 PS, or 120 PS.

The engines have either a six-speed manual gearbox, or six-speed automatic transmission for the more powerful units.

Fuel economy will range from 48 to 52 mpg for the petrol engines, while the diesel engine will return around 64 mpg.
