New Opel Grandland X: Summary
 
  • Chic and spacious: Sporty style with crisp proportions and lots of room
  • Top road grip: IntelliGrip for maximum traction on every surface
  • Safe and relaxing: Ultra-modern assistance systems, five stars from Euro NCAP
  • Powerful and economical: Efficient engines ensure lively SUV driving fun
  • Ultimate comfort: Opel Grandland X Ultimate with top technologies as standard
  • Head of the family: Third Opel X model after Mokka X and Crossland X

 

Modern, dynamic lines, a cool off-road look and the elevated seating position with good all-round visibility typical of an SUV, along with a host of top technologies, plenty of space and comfort for up to five adventurous passengers as well as a safety concept awarded the maximum five stars from Euro NCAP – this is the Opel Grandland X. The newcomer is a true contender in the booming SUV segment. Its share has increased from seven percent in 2010 to nearly 20 percent today. Ideally equipped, the Grandland X was recently launched as the third member of the Opel X-Family. It joins its Opel Crossland X and bestseller Opel Mokka X siblings and meets highest expectations.

Under its hood, the Grandland X can look to the new 130 kW/177 hp, 2.0-litre top-of-the-range diesel (NEDC diesel consumption urban 5.3-5.31 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.6-4.51 l/100 km, combined 4.9-4.81 l/100 km, 128-126[1] g/km CO2) in combination with the new, especially efficient eight-speed automatic transmission. Elsewhere, the premium “Ultimate” trim promising an outstanding level of comfort. For prices starting at €41,595, customers can enjoy high-tech features such as Forward Collision Alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking along with ultra-modern technologies such as AFL LED headlights and Advanced Park Assist with the 360° panoramic camera as standard. The AGR-certified (Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V.) premium ergonomic seats for driver and front passenger, leather upholstery and seat heating for driver, front passenger and the two outside rear seats all increase the level of comfort. Outstanding infotainment and connectivity are guaranteed by the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible Navi 5.0 IntelliLink with eight-inch colour touchscreen. Suitable smartphones can even be charged wirelessly. Furthermore, Ultimate customers can listen to their music on the standard Denon premium sound system while DAB+ increases the selection and sound quality of radio stations. This is round off by the cool, dynamic design of Opel’s compact SUV that makes it a real eye-catcher – even more so with the optional two-colour finish.

Safe driving fun: IntelliGrip, ultra-modern assistance systems and engines

The Grandland X drives as dynamically as it looks and offers one thing above all: safe driving fun all year round and on every surface. This is also thanks to the optional electronic IntelliGrip traction that ensures top road grip in diverse driving situations. The driver has a choice of five driving modes. The system then adapts the torque distribution to the front wheels and allows wheel-spin if necessary. This ensures best traction and stable handling regardless of whether the Grandland X is travelling on snow, mud, sand or wet surfaces.

The Grandland X also features a first-class portfolio of ultra-modern assistance systems that make traveling more relaxing: Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking and pedestrian detection, Driver Drowsiness Alert, Advanced Park Assist and the 360° Panoramic Camera are just some highlights. Other systems such as the Adaptive Cruise Control with stop function, which maintains the speed and selected distance to the vehicle ahead and brakes to a full stop or accelerates the Grandland X when required, increase safety even further. The outstanding safety level of the Grandland X was confirmed by Euro NCAP who awarded it five stars. The new Opel SUV earned good marks in all four of the safety categories adult occupant protection, child occupant protection, pedestrian protection and safety assist.

Opel again delivers on its commitment to leadership in lighting technology, equipping the Grandland X with bright driving light thanks to Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) LED headlamps that come as standard with the Ultimate trim. Functions such as cornering light, high beam assist and auto levelling guarantee optimal illumination of the road ahead in all situations.

In addition to the optional electronic IntelliGrip traction and many driver assistance systems, the lively engines also contribute to driving fun with the Grandland X. Currently three engines that boast excellent CO2 emissions are available – a real plus for tax savings and economic efficiency. The engines can be combined with a modern six-speed manual or friction-optimised six-speed automatic transmission and come with Start/Stop as standard; the two-litre top-of-the-line diesel comes exclusively with the new smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic gearbox.

  • The top-of-the-line 2.0 diesel engine produces 130 kW/177 hp at 3,750 rpm and develops strong maximum torque of 400 Nm at 2,000 rpm. This accelerates the Grandland X from zero to 100 km/h in 9.1 seconds and takes it to a top speed of 214 km/h (Fuel consumption 2.0 diesel in accordance with New European Driving Cycle: urban 5.3-5.3[2]l/100 km, extra-urban 4.6-4.51 l/100 km, combined 4.9-4.82 l/100 km, 128-1262 g/km CO2). This engine is exclusive to the Grandland X Ultimate and is only available to order on this trim.

 

Available on the SC, SRi and Elite trims:

  • The 1.6-litre diesel with 88 kW/120 hp provides maximum torque of 300 Nm from 1,750 rpm (NEDC fuel consumption: urban 5.1-4.7 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.2-3.5 l/100 km, combined 4.6-4.0 l/100 km, 118-104 g/km CO2).
  • The 1.2 all-aluminium Turbo petrol direct injection engine delivers 96 kW/130 hp and maximum torque of 230 Nm also from 1,750 rpm (NEDC fuel consumption: urban 6.4-6.0 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.9-4.5 l/100 km, combined 5.5-5.1 l/100 km, 127-117 g/km CO2).

 

Sporty, elegant, comfortable: This is how a modern SUV should look

In addition to the lively driving performance, the elegant styling, high-grade and comfortable interior as well as comprehensive infotainment technology all contribute to the feel-good atmosphere.

At 4,477 millimetres long, 1,856 millimetres wide (without door mirrors) and 1,609 millimetres high, the Opel Grandland X is a cool, robust SUV from every perspective of its sporty presence. In the front above the skidplate the bold grille proudly displays the Opel Blitz. The chrome winglets embrace the brand logo and flow outwards to the slim, double-wing LED headlamps, optically widening the front and giving the Grandland X a powerful, solid stance. The hood features the signature Opel crease – an expression of the Opel design philosophy ‘German Precision meets Sculptural Artistry’.

Its side views echo the attractive combination of rugged SUV appeal and elegant lines. Muscular, sculpted wheel arches and protective cladding on the lower body give the Grandland X real off-road appeal. In contrast, clear lines and the refined blade on the lower doors identify the new Grandland X as a member of the Opel family. Optional two-tone finish with the roof in contrasting black adds an extra touch of personalisation. Its smooth flow into the rest of the body is emphasised by the “breakthrough” C pillar, which also creates a dynamic bond to the rear. The rear view of the Grandland X shows down to the smallest detail what real SUV design means: wide stance, silver underride protection with integrated tailpipes on the left and right, and above that protective cladding and slim LED taillights underline the newcomer’s sporty, muscular character.

The high quality continues in the interior: the instrument panel and centre stack with touchscreen are clearly laid out and horizontally aligned to the driver. The centre stack has three horizontal rows of controls for fast and intuitive access to infotainment, climate control and chassis functions. The interior surfaces have a high-quality look and feel, giving the driver and passengers a feeling of well-being and comfort in all seats. They benefit from the SUV-typical elevated seating position that facilitates ingress/egress and ensures good visibility. The optional panorama glass sunroof floods the interior with light and provides excellent skyward visibility. Typical first-class Opel comfort is ensured by the optional AGR (Campaign for Healthier Backs) certified ergonomic seats as well as a heated steering wheel and seat heating front and rear.

The long wheelbase of 2,675 millimetres adds to the airy interior feeling and ensures that up to five people enjoy generous space in the compact class SUV. And with a load volume of 514 to 1,652 litres for luggage and sport equipment, the new Opel SUV is even on a par with extremely spacious compact class station wagons. Depending on trim variant, access to the luggage compartment is very easy and comfortable with the sensor-controlled tailgate that opens and closes automatically with a simple kicking movement.

In typical Opel fashion, Grandland X drivers and passengers enjoy top connectivity with the latest generation of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatible IntelliLink systems as well as the personal connectivity and service assistant OnStar including Wi-Fi Hotspot[3] and additional services such as booking hotel rooms[4] and searching for parking[5]. Smartphones can even be charged wirelessly. For music fans who want to enjoy a top sound experience, a Denon premium sound system with eight loudspeakers and subwoofer is available.
