Opel is just getting started with its new “X” naming strategy, especially with the amount of crossovers it has planned. The brand announced the Opel Crossland X will arrive in 2017, replacing the Opel Meriva MPV.
The Crossland X will be built in accordance to the GM-PSA alliance, meaning Peugeot and Citroen will also receive a variant of the Crossland X. Opel states the new crossover is a response to the boom of the vehicle type and will deliver with sporty character and spaciousness.
“Customers also want more emotional cars in the B-segment,” said Opel CMO Tina Müller. “We are meeting these expectations with the Crossland X, and offering a car with exciting design and the benefits of an SUV for the urban lifestyle – agile around town, confident over long distances. This is the car for people who want to live the country life in town, who grow tomatoes and herbs on the roof garden and need plenty of space for their children and the shopping from the bio supermarket.”
With the Crossland X, Opel states it will truly begin its crossover offensive, also to be joined by an unnamed C-segment crossover the same year.
