Vauxhall’s crossover line-up is one of the best for offering buyers affordable and spacious and family cars, and there is little wonder why they’re so popular.
Here’s everything you need to know about this entry-level crossover…
What engines are available?
The Crossland X comes with a variety of engines that are widely used across the PSA Group (including Citroen, Peugeot and DS), which are known for being reliable and good all-rounders.
The range starts with a 82bhp 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol unit, which offers the lowest CO2 emissions of all the petrol units – measuring 106g/km. It’s best for town use only, though, with the 0-60mph taking a rather lengthy 13.4 seconds. This is the only engine with a five-speed manual transmission – the rest use six-speed ‘boxes instead.Enquire on a new Crossland X
The turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol units are the more appealing, with buyers able to choose their version with either 108bhp or 128bhp – the latter being the only petrol engine available with a six-speed automatic transmission. Both offer a good mix of performance and efficiency – the 128bhp manual version returning the best fuel economy figure of 47.9mpg, along with the quickest 0-60mph time – 9.1 seconds.
If you cover longer distances, the diesel unit is the version to go for. The Crossland X’s 1.5-litre diesel unit is available with either 101bhp or 118bhp – the former just being paired to a six-speed manual transmission and the latter to a six-speed automatic. The former is the most efficient engine in the entire line-up – returning up to an impressive 61.4mpg.
What trim levels are offered?
Five trim grades are available, with equipment highlights and prices as follows.
Sport – from £18,435
Standard equipment is generous, and includes LED headlights, a seven-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth and smartphone mirroring, as well as air conditioning, a leather steering wheel and diamond-cut 17-inch alloy wheels.
Sport Nav Premium – from £19,685
In addition to Sport, this version adds a larger eight-inch touchscreen with voice control, satellite navigation and European mapping, as well as front and rear parking sensors and Vauxhall Connect on-call services.
Business Edition Nav – from £18,845
This model is focused towards the fleet market, and therefore loses some of the Crossland X’s stylish touches – missing out on its two-tone look and coming with smaller 16-inch alloy wheels. However, it adds dual-zone climate control, front fog lights, automatic lights and wipers, a driver’s armrest and ambient LED interior lighting.
Elite – from £19,595
This version essentially is a combination of the Business Edition Nav and Sport – coming with all the kit of the former with the style of the latter – e.g 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.
Elite Nav – from £20,645
Sitting at the top of the range is the Elite Nav, which brings an eight-inch touchscreen with voice control and satellite navigation, as well as Vauxhall Connect on-call services.

What about personalisation?
Vauxhall offers plenty of options to personalise your Crossland X – starting with eight different colours to choose from. A dark blue is the no-cost offering, but if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous – opt for ‘Power Orange Premium’ or ‘Hot Red Premium’ at £655.
Sport variants feature a two-tone roof and door and mirrors as standard, with buyers able to choose from a black or white contrasting colour. If you want this on the other grades, it is a £400 option.
The options list is also quite extensive, with one of our highlights being the £500 ‘Safety Pack’, which adds autonomous emergency braking and a driver drowsiness system. If you struggle to get comfortable behind the wheel, we also recommend opting for the AGR-approved (campaign for healthier backs) seats, which feature more adjustment to provide more comfort. These are a £425 option. The heated front windscreen is also an appealing offering, with this costing a modest £160.
