The second ‘X’ model to join Vauxhall’s SUV/crossover line-up – confirmed as the Crossland X – is one of five new models slated for launch next year.
Vauxhall says the newcomer is designed to appeal to family car buyers who demand agility and convenience in urban driving along with comfort and performance for longer journeys.

Since 2012, the Mokka – recently revamped as the Mokka X – has found more than 120,000 buyers in the UK, its single biggest market in Europe, so Vauxhall is expecting to build on that success with the new addition.
As well as the Crossland X, Vauxhall will be launching four other brand new models in 2017, adding further variety to its range, while at the same time entering new market segments.
The new Insignia Grand Sport will be the new flagship product of the range. The large five-door hatchback will have a coupe-like silhouette, as well as ‘huge driver appeal and a class-leading all-wheel-drive system’, says Vauxhall.
The rakish new Insignia Sports Tourer is said to take many design cues from the 2013 Monza Concept. Compared with the existing model, interior space has increased significantly, especially in the rear cabin and luggage area.
The new Insignia range will be completed by a Country Tourer model featuring all-wheel-drive as standard as well as off-road looks.
The SUV/crossover range (Mokka X and Crossland X) is to be joined by a new C-segment crossover, similar in size to the Astra and Zafira Tourer, and with an especially sporty design, says Vauxhall.
“2017 will be a landmark year for Vauxhall,” said Rory Harvey, Chairman and Managing Director. “Our portfolio will grow, for sure, but it’s the quality and innovation which underpins our new products that will surprise customers. The Insignia Grand Sport will force buyers to reassess how they perceive our brand, and later in the year our two crossover offerings will bring Vauxhall to, in many cases, completely new sets of buyers.”
