Vauxhall adds Ultimate trim level to Grandland X range

A new top-of-the-range variant has joined Vauxhall's Grandland X SUV line-up, fitted with extra equipment as standard and powered by a new 2.0-litre Turbo Diesel engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Standard equipment across all Grandland X models already includes OnStar, Dual Zone Climate Control, Lane Departure Warning and Rear Parking Sensors but the Ultimate adds a range of extra features.

On the style front, there are 19-inch BiColour alloy wheels, alloy sports pedals and a black roof and door mirrors, while interior comfort and convenience are boosted by a heated steering wheel, heated rear outer seats and a Denon premium sound system. 

The Ultimate upgrade is completed with Automatic Cruise Control, a 360-degree Panoramic Camera and an LED Adaptive Forward Lighting Pack with projector headlights.

The new SUV also introduces Vauxhall’s latest 2.0-litre diesel engine, which delivers 177PS at 3,750rpm and 400Nm of torque at 2,000rpm, helping it achieve 0-60mph in 8.6 seconds and a top speed of 133mph, with official CO2 emissions of 128g/km and fuel economy of 57.6mpg on the combined cycle.

Vauxhall says that the eight-speed automatic gearbox is similar to that fitted to the Insignia range, and it has been 'engineered with a smooth linear shift pattern'.

Available to order now, the new Grandland X Ultimate is priced from £33,995 on-the-road. The flagship trim level will also be available on the Mokka X and Crossland X models.
