Rüsselsheim.  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. 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 bonnet, top engines already comply with the stringent future Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard. The top-of-the-line unit is currently the 130 kW/177 hp, 2.0-litre Turbo Diesel (fuel consumption[1] urban 5.3-5.3 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.6-4.5 l/100 km, combined 4.9-4.8 l/100 km, 128-126 g/km CO2) in combination with the new, especially efficient eight-speed automatic transmission.

High-tech features such as IntelliGrip, Forward Collision Alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking as well  as AFL LED headlights and Advanced Park Assist with the 360° camera increase safety. The optional 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 IntelliLink systems with an up to eight-inch colour touchscreen. Optionally, suitable smartphones can even be charged wirelessly. Furthermore, the Denon premium sound system is available while DAB+ increases the selection and sound quality of radio stations.

This is rounded 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 adaptive IntelliGrip traction system that ensures top road grip in diverse driving situations. The driver has a choice of five driving modes. IntelliGrip 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° Camera are just some highlights. Optional systems such as 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. 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 engines that boast excellent CO2 emissions and already comply with the future Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard 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, especially efficient eight-speed automatic transmission and come with Start/Stop as standard.

  • 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 consumption1: urban 5.3-5.3 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.6-4.5 l/100 km, combined 4.9-4.8 l/100 km, 128-126 g/km CO2).
  • The 1.5-litre Diesel with 96 kW/130 hp provides maximum torque of 300 Nm from 1,750 rpm and is available with the eight-speed automatic (fuel consumption1: urban 4.5-4.4 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.0-3.9 l/100 km, combined 4.2-4.1 l/100 km, 109-108 g/km CO2) or the six-speed manual transmission (fuel consumption1: urban 4.7-4.7 l/100 km, extra-urban 3.9-3.8 l/100 km, combined 4.2-4.1 l/100 km, 110-108 g/km CO2).(
  • The 1.2 all-aluminium Direct InjectionTurbo petrol  engine delivers 96 kW/130 hp and maximum torque of 230 Nm from 1,750 rpm. The engine is available with six-speed manual transmission (fuel consumption1: urban 6.1-6.1 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.9-4.8 l/100 km, combined 5.3-5.2 l/100 km, 121-120 g/km CO2) or – for the first time – also with the eight-speed automatic (fuel consumption1: urban 6.1-6.0 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.9-4.8 l/100 km, combined 5.3-5.2 l/100 km, 121-119 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 exterior 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 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 infotainment systems Radio R 4.0 IntelliLink and Navi 5.0 IntelliLink.. 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.
