Vauxhall Crossland X 2017 price and specs have been revealed
The all-new Vauxhall Crossland X is now on sale, priced from just £16,555.
It originally made its world debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.
Crossland X is an important SUV for Vauxhall and will sit alongside the Mokka X and be joined by the new larger Grandland X later in the year.
Vauxhall is hoping that the crossover can be a competitor in the burgeoning SUV market. Due to the fact that this segment could become over-saturated, the Crossland X needs to stand out be a success.
It’s very unthreatening and somewhat youthful looks certainly are a vote in favour of the Crossland X, which has a vague resemblance to the new Renault Captur.
We’re not sold on the contrasting plastic front and rear bumper and chunky side sills though, with them looking a bit clunky.
The grille, which is accented in chrome, the contrasting roof, similar to the one of the Adam, and the inclusion of LED headlights are, however, much more pleasing inclusions.
Crossland X is more compact than the Mokka X and is actually shorter than the Astra Hatch.
However, it boasts an impressive 520-litre boot space which can be extended up to 1,255 litres with the 60/40 split seats folded down.

The rear seats are also adjustable up to 150mm forwards and backwards to improve either luggage space or legroom.
The entry-level SE trim is available from just £16,555 on-the-road, with a 1.2i (81PS) petrol engine and five-speed manual transmission.
The top of the range model is the six-speed manual 1.6CDTi (120PS) S/S diesel in Elite Nav trim, available from £21,380 on-the-road.
Available with several 1.2i-litre petrol engines, the Crossland X offers a choice of five-speed or six-speed manual transmissions, or a six-speed automatic gearbox.
The 1.2i S/S (130PS), with six-speed manual transmission, is available from just £18,290 on-the-road in the generous Tech Line Nav trim.
Onstage with 4G/LTE WiFi hotspot can also be selected
The Crossland X range includes SE, SE Nav, Techline Nav, Elite and Elite Nav model trims, ensuring a suitable model for every driver.
For drivers preferring a diesel engine, the 1.6 Turbo D ECOTEC S/S (99PS) with manual transmission is the most economical in the range, with CO2 emissions of 93g/km.
Starting in SE trim from £18,715 on-the-road, the frugal engine is available at all trim levels.
The diesel range is also available with the more powerful 1.6 Turbo D S/S (120PS) engine that, when coupled with a six-speed manual gearbox, has CO2 emissions of just 105g/km. It is available from just £19,575 in Techline Nav specification.
Inside the car is an eight-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system which is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Onstage with 4G/LTE WiFi hotspot can also be selected, providing increased connectivity on the go.
Vauxhall has also given the option for buyers to benefit from a Head Up Display, which in theory reduces distraction.
A range of driver assistance and safety systems have also been included as standard on the Crossland X and some as optional extras, or exclusive to the higher trim levels.
These include a 180-degree Panoramic Rear-View Camera, Advanced Park Assist, Forward Collision Alert with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Speed Sign Recognition and Side Blind Spot Alert, among others.
