Vauxhall GrandLand X

The last time Vauxhall tried to make an SUV, we got the entirely forgettable Antara. But now it’s back in the game with the all-new Grandland X. In development since 2013, the new car shares most of its mechanical underpinnings with the current Peugeot 3008, which is no bad thing, as the 3008 is a decent car.
It’s a pity that the interior of the Grandland X doesn’t have the same wow factor as the Peugeot 3008 that it shares its oily bits with. That’s not to say the look and finish inside aren’t good, it’s just a bit plain. If you’ve sat inside a new Vauxhall Insignia or even the updated Mokka X, you’ll get déjà vu.
The layout is simple, and ergonomically most things work well. Its pair of cup holders by the armrest aren’t ideally placed if you want to put bottles in AND change gear at the same time, though. I know, we’re a fussy lot. Choosing the Tech Line Nav model ensures you get the larger eight-inch infotainment system. This not only looks nicer, but is great to use and doesn’t appear to get covered in fingerprints like some touchscreens.
In the back, there’s plenty of room that’s helped by decently proportioned door apertures and easy-to-reach ISOFIX points. One minor annoyance is that, although the outer door skin reaches all the way down to the sill, keeping the inside bit clean, the rear arch on the Grandland X doesn’t. So, you can easily cover your jeans or whatever in road grime if you’re not careful. Drawing the short straw to sit in the middle isn’t that bad though, thanks to the almost flat floor across the rear.
In the end, if you can look past the silly name, you’ll get a practical crossover that offers a decent, albeit limited engine range, roomy interior and most of the safety features and tech that buyers want these days. All that is wrapped up in a reasonably well-priced package.
