Vauxhall Grandland gets a fresh face and drops the X
The Vauxhall Grandland crossover has been thoroughly refreshed for 2021, with the Qashqai competitor also dropping the ‘X’ from its name.
Read on to find what else is new.
Vauxhall Grandland exterior
Vauxhall really has gone to town with this refresh. Compared to the outgoing model, the new Grandland features a much more distinctive design.
You’ll notice that it bears a striking resemblance to the latest Mokka, and that’s no bad thing. Up front you’ll find a flat-faced grille and a pair of new LED headlights (made up of 84 individual bulbs).
WIth its contrasting gloss-black trim and a new angular look, it really sets itself apart when compared to competitors such as the Nissan Qashqai and Ford Kuga.
The back end isn’t quite as striking, although it’s been updated just like the front. You might also notice the lack of that ‘X’ on any badges too.
Vauxhall Grandland interior and tech
The look and feel of Vauxhalls have really taken a step up over the last year or two, and the new Grandland is no exception; there’s two screens that take the place of buttons and analogue dials.
The central infotainment screen is a touchscreen unit and measures 12in, while the driver gets their own 10in driver display instead of analogue dials. This tells you about key functions and replays all the info they need to know.
The infotainment system is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, meaning connecting your phone is really simple. Talking of phones, a wireless charging station is standard across the range too.
Vauxhall Grandland engines
The Grandland will be available a petrol, diesel or hybrid, with the range made up of the same units seen in the outgoing car.
Specs are to be confirmed, but expect a 1.2-litre unit to power petrol and hybrid models, with a number of power levels offered. A diesel will likely make the line-up too, and probably be a 1.6-litre unit.
Vauxhall Grandland release date
Set to cost from around £25,000, we’ll bring you more info on the refreshed Grandland when it’s revealed.
We reckon it’ll be available to order soon though, with deliveries expected to start from the autumn months.
