The Opel Grandland X represents one of the final GM-sanctioned products before the U.S. automaker unloaded the brand and its European operations onto France’s PSA Groupe. While that deal is still being worked out, Opel has priced the new crossover—which is actually based on PSA product already.
The Grandland X will start at €23,700 ($26,482 USD) when it goes on sale later this year, and it includes some impressive standard features.
Specifically, technology and active safety are a strong suit; lane departure warning, road sign recognition, hill start assist, radio R4.0 with Bluetooth hands-free phone capability, air conditioning and more are included in the base price, which includes all value-added tax in Germany.
The Grandland X is as functional as it is stylish—we think it’s a sharp looking crossover. 58.3 cubic feet of cargo space is present inside and the seats fold in a 40/60 configuration.
At launch, two engines will be available: a 1.2-liter gasoline turbocharged four-cylinder, producing 130 horsepower, and a 1.6-liter turbodiesel that is good for 120 hp, but 221 pound-feet of torque to scoot the CUV around. The Grandland X diesel starts at €26,500 ($29,623).
The Grandland X will make its auto show debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show this September and will go on sale shortly thereafter. Order books are now open with the first deliveries taking place this fall.
