Vauxhall Grandland X Aims To Be The Safest SUV In Its Class

At this moment in time we know very little about Vauxhall’s Grandland X SUV, however what we do know is that it completes the trio of SUVs offered by the brand. Aimed to take on the likes of the Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tuscon, Vauxhall wants to make this one of the safest cars on the road.

For this reason, the Grandland X is available with Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian recognition and Driver Drowsiness Alert. There’s also an Advanced Park Assist and Automotive Cruise Control.
Sharing its platform with the all-new Peugeot 3008 (and the upcoming Citroen C5 Aircross for that matter), it’s unlikely to be available with an all-wheel-drive setup anytime soon, favouring instead PSA’s Grip Control.
It’s also likely to share PSA’s engines making use of a 130 hp 1.2 and a 165 hp 1.6 on the petrol side, and a pair of 1.6 and 2.0-litre engines where diesel is concerned, producing 100, 120, 150 and 180 hp respectively.

Vauxhall’s latest SUV will premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in mid-September, arriving in showrooms “shortly after”, priced from £22,310 (£185 less than the Peugeot 3008).
