That’s him: the Successor to the Meriva in SUV instead of van optics, a size smaller than the mocha and only available with front-wheel drive. the Crossland X came in 2017 as the first to be created under the aegis of PPE Opel; Peugeot 2008 and Citroën C3 Aircross use the same platform. It is built in Spain. There is a choice of a 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol engine (initially 81, then 83, 110 or 130 hp), a 1.6-liter diesel (99-120 hp) by mid-2018, then a 1.5 -Liter diesel (102-120 hp). The top versions of diesel and petrol can each be ordered with a six-speed automatic. dieselCrossland are difficult to find; the drum-like petrol engine clearly dominates the buyers’ favor. Since the facelift in autumn 2020 the “X“in the model name.

Those who like to sit high are not served badly. Likewise, those who value a lot of payload and variability – The back seat can be tilted and moved lengthways, there is a compartment for the hat rack, a bike fits in after the front wheel has been removed. Fans of modern assistance systems and fuel-saving technology will not get their money’s worth – the technical basis is no longer the youngest. At least a head-up display can be ordered. The rumble-tight chassis, the less precise gearshift and an equally imprecise steering reduce the driving pleasure. But you sit well in the front, especially on the AGR seats, an extra charge.

Variable: the rear bench can be moved lengthways, the backrest can be tilted and has a hatch – more of a van than an SUV.

That causes trouble: At first there was isolated electrical problems and strut dome bearings that wear out too quickly. The choice of material corresponds to the low price. The Federal Motor Transport Authority recorded a recall due to abrasion damage to the cable harness.
