Opel will have quite a busy year in 2017 as it gears up to reveal not two, not five but seven new vehicles to expand its portfolio. Many of these new vehicles will capitalize on the success that is the crossover utility vehicle, and what we have here could be a good look at what to expect.
The 2017 Opel Grandland X will fill the brand’s currently empty space in the C-segment of CUVs and will be built in conjunction with the now-sour General Motors-PSA alliance. The Grandland X will also sit above the Crossland X, which will be a smaller CUV.
Our digital mastermind at RM Design imagined the upcoming Opel crossover with the brand’s latest design motifs, which include a trapezoidal grille, angular headlamps and a “floating” roofline.
Opel has also stated the Grandland X will offer “irresistible off-road appeal”, which is reflected in the stylish accents at the front and rear of the vehicle. However, don’t let the marketing jargon fool you, this will certainly not be an off-road machine.
At the rear, a tucked bottom and chiseled lines help pave the way for the future of Opel design and build upon what we’ve seen from the Opel Mokka X and a pair of tail lamps akin to the Astra are present to keep the Grandland X all in the family.
