Opel has a busy 2017 in store as it plans to reveal seven new vehicles this year alone. Per the market’s infatuation with crossovers, a few of those seven products will be of the crossover type, and one will be revealed in two days’ time.
The face of the Crossland X looks very much like a blend of the 2018 Opel Insignia Grand Sport and Mokka X, which isn’t a bad thing. Opel’s latest “Sculptural artistry meets German precision” design motif has translated quite well to production cars after it first debuted on the Opel Monza concept.
The latest Opel crossover will also effectively replace the Meriva MPV and will be built according to the GM-PSA alliance in Europe; the new Crossland X will share similar characteristics with an upcoming Citroen, per the joint development agreement.
Opel has previously described the Crossland X as “a car with exciting design and the benefits of an SUV for the urban lifestyle – agile around town, confident over long distances,” playing upon the success of the Mokka X.
Speaking of the Mokka X, the Crossland X will slot one segment above the compact crossover when it does officially arrive later this year.
