Rüsselsheim.  Crisp and compact on the outside, very spacious and versatile on the inside with trendy two-tone paintwork and cool SUV look – that is the Opel Crossland X. It is excitingly different and every detail is intriguing. The Crossland X is the second member of the Opel X family – comprised of the Mokka X, Crossland X and Grandland X – that is now available to customers in its entirety for the first time this year.

Compared with the Opel Mokka X, which comes with optional four-wheel drive for occasional off-road outings, the Opel Crossland X is predestined for urban areas with compact exterior dimensions while also being perfectly suitable for a shopping spree or for a holiday trip. With a length of 4.21 metres, the Crossland X is 16 centimetres shorter than an Astra while at the same time 10 centimetres higher. Occupants enjoy an elevated seating position and the excellent all-round view it provides. Buyers looking for an even better experience can further improve the feeling of space with the optional panoramic glass roof.

The stylish SUV offers outstanding innovations that make every day driving safer, more comfortable and easier. It is with good reason that the Crossland X, which has already been ordered around 125,000 times since its launch, was named "Best in Class Car 2017" by Euro NCAP.  In the safety ratings published last November, the independent organisation awarded the Opel Crossland X the maximum five stars. The stylish and functional SUV (B-segment) scored high in all four safety areas – adult occupant protection, child occupant protection, pedestrian protection and safety assist. The Crossland X performed especially well in the side barrier tests, where it scored maximum points for both adult and child occupant protection.

In addition to the standard features such as Driver Drowsiness Alert and Lane Departure Warning, the Opel Crossland X has further first-class safety-enhancing systems on offer. These include Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking and pedestrian detection[2] as well as innovative full LED headlights, head up display, the 180-degree Panoramic Rear View Camera and Side Blind Spot Alert. This is complemented by Opel-typical top digital infotainment with modern Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible IntelliLink technology including up to 8-inch large colour touchscreens. And compatible smartphones can be charged while in use via wireless inductive charging.

Both the driver and the front seat passenger can take advantage of the award-winning and AGR-certified (Campaign for Healthier Backs) ergonomic seats with the Crossland X being the only car – other than the Mokka X of course – to offer such comfort in the segment. Just as exceptional is its maximum trunk volume of 520 litres – without folding the rear seats down and with five passengers on board. In addition, passengers in the rear have the possibility to adjust their seating position by 150 millimetres in longitudinal direction as well as their seat angle. This makes the Crossland X even more versatile.

Clear design and outstanding space utilisation

Bold, crisp and cool are the three attributes that every “urban SUV” needs. The Crossland X has them all while remaining a typical Opel with best possible packaging and a huge personality. With its length of 4,212 millimetres, width of 1,825 millimetres (excluding wing mirrors) and height of 1,605 millimetres, it brings its very own interpretation of Opel’s typical design DNA to the table and makes it both sophisticated and rugged, with the prominent grille and shining Opel Blitz leading the way. SUV-typical claddings and silver inserts in the front and throughout the entire lower section of the vehicle support the confident appearance and display functional and sporty elegance. Crisp side lines along with the seemingly ‘floating roof’ optically stretch the Crossland X. The ‘floating roof’ also displays its relationship to the Opel ADAM’s arched chrome window line that drops towards the rear. Just like for the small individualisation champion, customers can order a different colour for the roof. The prominent rear makes a clear SUV statement with its visible underride protection.

Being at the core of Opel’s design philosophy, sculptural design with a clear sense of precision also plays a major part in the interior design. Instrument panel and centre stack are clearly structured and horizontally aligned to the driver. As the driver control centre, the cockpit enhances the active driving feeling. To ensure good driving performance, customers in Germany can choose from an engine portfolio of efficient diesel and petrol units with 1.2 to 1.5-litre displacements and output from 60 kW/81 hp to 96 kW/130 hp, the majority of which already comply with the stringent Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard (Fuel consumption[3]: urban 6.5-4.7 l/100 km, extra-urban 5.0-3.5 l/100 km, combined 5.6-4.0 l/100 km, 127-105 g/km CO2; efficiency class C-A). The engines can be mated to a selection of five and six-speed manual as well as six-speed automatic transmissions.

The generous feeling of space and the first-class AGR ergonomic seats in the Crossland X make long trips comfortable. The SUV also convinces with a high level of flexibility, which can also be put down to its individually sliding and tilting rear seats. They come with a 60/40 split and can be moved by up to 150 millimetres, increasing trunk space from 410 to a class-leading 520 litres in seconds. Trunk volume increases to 1,255 litres if the rear seats are folded down completely. The Crossland X can be locked, opened and started with the optional Keyless Open & Start.

Trendsetting lighting technology and important assistance systems

Journeys can be made even more relaxing and safer with the numerous ultra-modern technologies and assistance systems available with the Opel Crossland X. Innovative full LED headlamps with cornering light, high beam assist and auto levelling ensure outstanding visibility in the dark. The head up display reduces the danger of distractions and projects the most important data on speed, navigation and assistance systems into the driver’s direct line of sight.

The Opel Eye front camera processes diverse data, thus forming the basis for the driver assistance systems such as Speed Sign Recognition and Lane Departure Warning. If the system registers that the lane is being left unintentionally it warns the driver by emitting audible and visible signals. The standard Cruise control with speed limiter also makes driving more pleasant. Forward collision alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking helps avoid accidents, and it is combined with a special Driver Drowsiness Alert.

A Panoramic Rear View Camera that increases the angle of sight at the back of the car to 180 degrees is also available for the Crossland X. And the latest generation of Advanced Park Assist facilitates parking even further. It recognizes suitable parking slots and parks the vehicle automatically. It can also exit the parking slot automatically. In both cases, the driver only needs to operate the pedals. During the winter months the heated steering wheel and the heated windshield increase comfort and safety.

The Opel Crossland X has an attractive entry-level price of €18,280 (all prices RRP in German including VAT). As the Edition variant available from €19,620, the compact and ultra-versatile SUV already comes with technologies and features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible Radio R 4.0 IntelliLink with a seven-inch colour touchscreen, power windows and a leather steering wheel with chrome elements on board.

[2] Works automatically above 5 km/h and below 85 km/h. From 5 to 30 km/h the deceleration metric to reduce the impact speed of the collision is 0.9g. From 30 to 85 km/h the system brakes to the speed by a maximum of 22 km/h. After this threshold, the driver needs to brake himself to reduce the speed even further. Operational speed range of AEBPD depends on the detected obstacle (mobile obstacle: from 5 to 85 km/h; fixed obstacle: from 5 to 80 km/h; pedestrian: from 5 to 60 km/h). The system can be activated or deactivated by the driver at any time.
