Used Vauxhall Crossland X for sale
The Crossland X is the smallest SUV offered by Vauxhall, and makes a great choice if you're after a spacious family car that is loaded with desirable technologies and safety features.
Although it was never deemed an official successor, the Crossland X feels like an up-to-date version of the now-discontinued Mokka X, which was a popular choice among UK motorists. Although there is stiff competition in this segment of the market, there are a number of reasons that the Crossland X is worthy of consideration:
- Comfortable and spacious
- Efficient engine choices, including a peppy 1.2-litre petrol
- Tons of equipment as standard
- Good infotainment system
- Affordable running costs
Engines and Driving Experience
The Crossland X offers a solid all-round driving experience; the ride is comfortable enough and the steering is direct, which makes for a relaxing journey every time. Wind noise is relatively noticeable, but that's only because tyre noise is well-contained, so it shouldn't be a deal-breaker by any means.
An established choice of engines are available, all of which are easy to recommend. Regular town drivers should opt for the turbocharged 1.2-litre unit that is available with either 108 or 128bhp. It feels eager in the Crossland X, yet still returns up to 47.9mpg with mixed driving.
The 1.5-litre diesel engine is also a strong performer and is available with either 101 or 118bhp. These units are slightly noisier than their petrol counterparts, but they'll reward you with up to 58.8mpg and low emissions by way of an apology, making them easy to forgive.
Practicality and Running Costs
Despite being a small SUV, the Crossland X has whiffs of a people-carrier about it, which is mainly down to the high roofline and large interior space. Unsurprisingly, head and knee room are very good because of this, meaning it should be easy for grown adults to get comfortable in the rear.
At 410 litres, the Crossland X's boot offers plenty of space and can fit a pushchair with relative ease. It's smaller than what's on offer in the Peugeot 2008 (434 litres) and Renault Captur (up to 422 litres), but the minimal lip and well-shaped loading bay make up for this.
Annual insurance premiums should be relatively inexpensive because the Crossland X doesn't exceed insurance group 18 (50 being the highest). As an authorised Vauxhall retailer, we can fulfil any servicing requirements, which includes discounts for members of Vauxhall Service Club.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Vauxhall are renowned for including plenty of technology as standard in their vehicles, and the Crossland X is no exception. A slick infotainment system features on all models, which can be accessed via a colour touchscreen. With inbuilt Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, connecting a smart device is straight-forward.
Air-conditioning, tinted windows and cruise control are welcome features. Advance up the range and useful gadgets, which include rear parking sensors and dual-zone climate control, are included. Think about opting for a 'Nav' model if you want satellite navigation and a larger touchscreen (7-inch as standard versus 8-inch in the Nav model).
Safety features that helped the Crossland X achieve a 5-star Euro NCAP crash test rating include:
- ABS (Anti-lock braking system)
- Traction control
- Hill start assist
- Six airbags
- Stability control
- Lane departure warning and speed sign recognition
Is the Vauxhall Crossland X right for me?
The Crossland X is a great choice if you're after a spacious SUV that isn't too big and therefore won't cause a headache when trying to navigate cities and tight car parking spaces. The efficient engines and low running costs add to the appeal, while the generous levels of equipment ensure you'll be getting excellent value for money.
There's plenty of competition in this segment. The SEAT Arona offers a bit more flair and a better driving experience, while the Citroën C3 AIRCROSS and the aforementioned Peugeot 2008 will appeal more if style is a priority.
