Vauxhall Crossland X lease deals available now
Following its official launch at the Geneva Motor Show, the Vauxhall Crossland X SUV is now available to order.
While the Crossland X’s recently-launched sibling, the Mokka X, has all-wheel-drive capability and is 70mm higher, the Crossland X has a firm family focus with a Tardis-like cabin providing high degrees of practicality and flexibility.
At just 4.21 metres in length, the Crossland X is more compact than the Mokka X, and a full 16cm shorter than the Astra Hatch, offering owners greater convenience while driving and manoeuvring in towns and cities. Adding to Crossland X’s urban appeal is an elevated seating position to give the driver better visibility
Step inside and the layout and materials will look familiar to those who know Vauxhall. Unlike the Mokka X however, it’s a much lighter, airier space courtesy of the car’s large windows. There’s enough room for four adults to sit comfortably, while a 410-litre load capacity makes it a more useful space than some rivals offer.
This is helped by the fact the rear seats can be moved back and forth by up to 150mm, allowing you to switch between extra legroom and more boot space depending on your needs. It also gets Vauxhall’s latest IntelliLink infotainment software which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
