Opel replaces the Meriva – a minivan – with the Crossland X, a model they define as an “urban crossover”. Its body is halfway between that of a minivan and that of a light SUV.
It measures 4.21 meters in length, 1.82 m in width and 1.61 m in height. It is therefore 6.3 cm shorter, 4.4 cm wider and 5.3 cm shorter than a Mokka X.
The most affordable version has a 82 hp tri-cylinder petrol engine and costs € 16 278, a price higher than that of a Peugeot 2008 1.2 PureTech 82 (which has the same engine) or a Renault Captur TCe 90. A Nissan Juke 1.6 94 hp costs slightly more.
With the diesel version of lower power -1.6 Diesel Turbo 99 HP: 18 222 € – something similar happens. It is more expensive than a Ford EcoSport 1.5 TDCi 95 hp or a SsangYong Tivoli D16T 115 hp but cheaper than a Jeep Renegade 1.6 Multijet 95 hp or a Mazda CX-3 1.5 Diesel 105 hp.
One of the main differences of the Crossland X with respect to the Mokka X is in the passenger compartment. Its appearance is similar, but it is wider and brighter (the glazed surface is larger) and it also has several functional elements that allow to modulate the available space according to the needs of load. The rear seats, for example, can be moved longitudinally 15 cm through a rail and the backs can be divided into three parts (proportions 40:20:40). The trunk has 410 liters of capacity in its least favorable position; If the seats of the rear seats are advanced, the volume grows up to 520 l.
The initial engine range is composed of three gasoline -1.2 82 hp, 1.2 Turbo 110 hp and 1.2 Turbo 131 hp- and two Diesel -1.6 99 hp and 1.6 120 hp-. In addition, in September 2017, Opel will add to the range a variant of the lower-pitched gasoline engine – 1.2 82 CV – ready to run on petrol or LPG. All engines are developed by PSA Peugeot-Citroën, group to which now also belongs Opel. The gearboxes can be manual of five or six speeds (depending on the chosen version) or automatic with six relations. The traction is always on the front wheels.
There are two levels of equipment available: Selective and Excellence. From the simplest level are elements such as the speed programmer , the system of recognition of some traffic signals , alert by involuntary change of lane or the multimedia system IntelliLink with touch screen of seven inches. The Excellence level adds to all of the above the lights and the automatic windshield wipers, the interior lighting with ledes or two-tone painting for the body.
In addition, you can optionally have items that are not yet too prevalent in vehicles of this size. This is the case of LEDs with adaptive lighting, the system for projecting information on a plastic sheet ( Head-up Display ) or the area of wireless recharge for mobile phones. Instead, the parking brake is still levered instead of electric.
This model will be manufactured in the Zaragoza plant of Figueruelas. There, also will be produced the new Citroën C3 Aircross, since it will be developed on this Crossland X.
An all-risk policy without excess for a Crossland X 1.2 Turbo 110 hp with the level of equipment Selective has a minimum cost of € 469 and is offered by the company Nuez Seguros . The borrower is a 35-year-old woman with more than 10 of license, who travels about 10 000 km annually, park in a community garage and reside in Valladolid.
