EQUIPMENT AND HANDLING
The Vauxhall Crossland X is a strong bid from the carmaker for the booming SUV segment and the firm says this is a crossover that's practical for urban areas. Indeed, it has a bold design and there's a lot of comfort and flexibility on board including sliding rear seats.
There's also a comprehensive infotainment system accessed via the 8-inch colour touchscreen and a range of driver assistance systems as well including advanced park assist, a 180° panoramic rear view camera, forward collision alert with pedestrian detection and also autonomous emergency braking. The systems also include traffic sign recognition and a blind spot alert. The Crossland X also has Vauxhall's OnStar assistance system and the IntelliLink infotainment system which is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
There's a lot to like about the Crossland X from the driver’s elevated seating position which gives a good view of the road ahead, and with a spacious interior it's a practical and comfortable place to spend time in.
Indeed, it's a comfortable car to drive round town and this model is slightly shorter than the excellent Mokka X to make navigating streets easier. The floating roof design also helps to create a nice environment for those on board.
Essentially, the Vauxhall Crossland X is up against some stiff competition but there's a lot to recommend this SUV which offers nice levels of handling and comfort wrapped up with practical ideas in a value for money package.
