The Opel Crossland X crossover has earned a five-star safety rating from the Euro NCAP, which means the more-than 70,000 European customers who have purchased a Crossland X since it hit the market in March of 2017 can rest easy knowing they’re well-protected in the event of a crash.
The B-segment crossover had a strong performance across all four safety areas: adult occupant protection, child occupant protection, pedestrian protection, and safety assist. According to an Opel press release, the Crossland X performed especially well in the side barrier tests, where it scored maximum points for both adult and child occupant protection.
Standard safety equipment, such as Driver Drowsiness Alert and Lane Departure Warning, add to the Crossland X’s safety resume, as do a host of optional innovations that allow for even higher driving safety. These options include Forward Collision Alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking, Driver Drowsiness Detection, high-tech full LED headlights, 180-degree Panoramic Rear View Camera, Side Blind Spot Alert, and more.
In a market that currently favors crossovers and SUVs, the Crossland X’s stellar Euro NCAP performance is great news for Opel and its new parent company, Peugeot Citroen.
