The Contender: New Opel Grandland XModern, dynamic lines, a cool off-road look, along with a host of top technologies plus plenty of space and comfort – this is the new Opel Grandland X. The newcomer is a true contender in the booming SUV segment, thanks to its attractive price-performance ratio. The new Opel Grandland X makes its premiere at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September and will be available to order from dealerships from Q4.

The cool, dynamic design of Opel’s new compact SUV makes it a real eye-catcher. The 4.48 metre-long Grandland X’s athletic look boasts crisp exterior dimensions while the long wheelbase of 2,675 millimetres, offers generous space for up to five people in the interior. And with a load volume of 514 to 1,652 litres for luggage and sports equipment, the new Opel SUV is even on a par with extremely spacious compact class estate models.

The Grandland X has a first-class portfolio of ultra-modern assistance, infotainment and comfort features: Lane Departure Warning, Road Sign Recognition, Hill Start Assist and Radio 4.0 with Bluetooth hands-free phone capability come as standard on all models while Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking and pedestrian detection, Driver Drowsiness Alert, Advanced Park Assist and the 360° Camera are available as options. Characteristic first-class Opel comfort is ensured by AGR (Campaign for Healthier Backs) certified ergonomic seats as well as a heated steering wheel, seat heating front and rear and the tailgate which opens and closes with a simple kicking movement.

In usual Opel fashion, Grandland X drivers and passengers enjoy top class connectivity with the latest generation of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatible IntelliLink systems as well as the personal connectivity and service assistant OnStar including Wi-Fi Hotspot[1] and new services such as booking hotel rooms[2] and searching for parking[3]. Smartphones can even be charged wirelessly via inductive charging. For music fans who want to enjoy an outstanding audio experience, a Denon premium sound system with eight loudspeakers and one subwoofer is available as an option.

Opel again shows leadership in lighting technology, equipping the Grandland X with bright driving light thanks to Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) LED headlamps. Functions such as cornering light, high beam assist and auto levelling guarantee optimal illumination of the road ahead in all situations.

Driving fun with modern engines and Grip Control traction

In addition to the many driver assistance systems, the lively engines and optional electronic Grip Control traction also contribute to safe and enjoyable driving with the Grandland X. Initially, two engines which boast excellent CO2 emissions will be available, a 1.2 Turbo petrol and a 1.6 diesel – a real plus for tax savings and economic efficiency. Both engines can be combined with a modern six-speed manual or friction-optimized six-speed automatic transmission and come with Start/Stop as standard.

The Contender: New Opel Grandland XThe optional electronic Grip Control also ensures that power is safely transferred to the road, providing top traction all year round and on every surface. The driver has a choice of five driving modes, the system then adapts the torque distribution to the front wheels and with the automatic transmission adjusts shift points as well as throttle response. This ensures best traction and stable handling regardless of whether the Grandland X is travelling on snow, mud, sand or wet surfaces.

The new Grandland X will be available to order from Opel dealerships nationwide from Q4 this year. The newcomer joins the Opel Crossland X and bestselling Opel Mokka X in the Opel X family.
