On or off the beaten track, the Grandland X is ready for action - and now there’s a plug-in hybrid version, too. A stylish full-size SUV, it’s both practical and agile, with impressive luggage capacity and a premium cabin allied to exceptional performance on - and off - road.
The Grandland X manages to look purposeful and sleek at the same time, proving that SUVs don’t need to be big and square in order to still take the rough with the smooth.
With its sloping roofline, athletic poise and muscular curves, the Grandland X has immense road presence while at the same time maintaining a design harmony that’s often missing from SUVs these days.
It’s the details that make the difference and in the Grandland X you keep noticing them. First, there’s the hands-free tailgate - if you have the key in your pocket, just pass your foot over the sensor and ‘open sesame’, no need to put down your heavy load.
The Grandland X also has a FlexFloor boot, which folds flat and allows up to 1,652 litres of luggage space.
With the seats in place, there’s loads of room for front and rear passengers to stretch out, while ergonomically designed sports seats, a heated windscreen, heated seats and heated steering wheel add further to the appeal. Like we said, it’s in the detail.
With two electric motors and a 1.6-litre petrol engine the Grandland X Hybrid4 is the first Vauxhall PHEV and has an electric-only range of 35 miles, which is ideal for many people’s daily commute. It also gives the feel of 300bhp at the touch of a pedal thanks to the electric drivetrain’s instant torque.
There are also a range of modern and efficient petrol and diesel engines.
Safety and technology
There’s a host of high-tech safety kit in the Grandland X including LED Adaptive Forward Lighting and a host of Driver Assistance Systems including traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking.
In addition, there’s lots of technology in the cabin, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and wireless smartphone charging capability.
