Opel’s model offensive continues with the market launch of the Crossland X, which joins the Mokka X in the company’s crossover portfolio. The smallest SUV of the German brand will be available in its homeland with a starting price of €16,850, which translates to roughly $17,985 at the current exchange rates, making it slightly more affordable than the Peugeot 2008, upon which it's based.

At launch, the crossover model, which combines “practicality and generous space with the cool look of an SUV,” will be offered with a choice of five engines. The car won’t have a four-cylinder gasoline unit, as the range includes only three 1.2-liter units.

The entry-level option is naturally aspirated and has only 81 horsepower (60 kilowatts). It is followed by two turbocharged options – one wearing the Ecotec moniker and generating 110 hp (81 kW), and a range-topping variant with 130 hp (96 kW). The 110-hp version can be ordered with a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic.

If you want a diesel engine, the Crossland X has a 1.6-liter motor in two power options on offer – 99 hp (73 kW) and 120 hp (88 kW). The first one is the most efficient in the whole range with an average fuel consumption of 4.5 liters per 100 kilometers (52 miles per gallon). No all-wheel drive system is available and all models are powered by the front wheels.

As standard, the Crossland X will come equipped with Opel’s OnStar beginning with the Edition trim level. The system allows the driver to access 24-hour emergency services and to contact the Opel OnStar advisor to, say, choose a hotel and reserve a room or find a parking space.

More about the Crossland X:

Optional features include a panoramic glass roof, adaptive LED headlights, head-up display, and a 180-degree panoramic rear view camera. The high-riding vehicle also comes with an array of safety and assistance systems, such as Advanced Park Assist, Forward Collision Alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking, Driver Drowsiness System, Lane Keep Assist, Speed Sign Recognition, and Side Blind Spot.

  • Gasoline and diesel: Choice of five highly efficient engines
  • Top connectivity: With smartphone integration and new Opel OnStar services

Rüsselsheim.  The new Opel Insignia Grand Sport, new Insignia Sports Tourer, new electric star Ampera-e – the big Opel model offensive "7 in 17" with seven new models in 2017 is in full swing. Now the next newcomer of the year is here, the all-new Opel Crossland X. The crossover model combines practicality and generous space with the cool look of an SUV. It is the second member of the Opel X family, joining the bestseller Mokka X. The Crossland X is entering the booming sub-compact SUV market and is available to order from €16,850 (all prices RRP incl. VAT in Germany).

The Opel Crossland X comes to market with a choice of five engines. All three-cylinder gasoline and four-cylinder diesel units are ultra-modern, all-aluminum engines with top fuel efficiency.

The entry-level gasoline unit is the 1.2-liter engine with 60 kW/81 hp (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 6,4 l/100 km, extra-urban 4,4 l/100 km, combined 5,1 l/100 km; 114 g/km CO2). Next is the 1.2 Turbo with gasoline direct injection in three different drive variants. The especially economical ECOTEC version comes with a friction-optimized five-speed transmission (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 5,6 l/100 km, extra-urban 4,2 l/100 km, combined 4,8 l/100 km; 109 g/km CO2) and delivers 81 kW/110 hp. Just as powerful is the three-cylinder 1.2‑liter Turbo combined with a six-speed automatic gearbox (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 6,3 l/100 km, extra-urban 4,8 l/100 km, combined 5,3 l/100 km; 121 g/km CO2). Both engines already deliver their peak torque of 205 Nm at 1,500 rpm, with 95 percent of that available across the most often used plateau up to 3,500 rpm. With plenty of power at low rpm, the Opel Crossland X boasts excellent handling and extremely economical driving.

The top-of-the-line gasoline engine is the 1.2 Turbo with 96 kW/130 hp, maximum torque of 230 Nm from 1,750 rpm (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 5,7 l/100 km, extra-urban 4,6 l/100 km, combined 5,0 l/100 km; 114 g/km CO2) and six-speed manual transmission. This takes the Opel Crossland X from zero to 100 in 9.1 seconds and to a maximum speed of 206 km/h.

The lineup also includes three turbo-charged diesel engines. The 1.6 diesel is available from €19,300, has 73 kW/99 hp and offers maximum torque of 254 Nm at 1,750 rpm (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 4,5 l/100 km, extra-urban 3,4 l/100 km, combined 3,8 l/100 km; 99 g/km CO2). There is also an even more economical ECOTEC variant of this engine with Start/Stop that emits just 93 g/km CO2 (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 4,1 l/100 km, extra-urban 3,3 l/100 km, combined 3,6 l/100 km). The most powerful diesel is the 1.6 with 88 kW/120 hp (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 4,6 l/100 km, extra-urban 3,6 l/100 km, combined 4,0 l/100 km; 103 g/km CO2) and maximum torque of 300 Nm for strong pulling power in all situations. Together with the six-speed manual transmission, the Opel Crossland X 1.6 diesel completes mid-range acceleration from 80 to 120 km/h, which is especially important for overtaking maneuvers, in 10.5 seconds and has a maximum speed of 186 km/h.

Personal assistance and top connectivity with Opel Onstar

Opel OnStar is standard in the Crossland X beginning at the Edition trim level. In addition to the familiar telematics services such as 24-hour Emergency Call Service and remote control operation of door locks, the horn and lights, OnStar now offers even more services. The new Crossland X also marks the introduction of a new personal service that enables passengers to simply contact the Opel OnStar advisor to, for example, choose a hotel and reserve a room1 or find a parking space2. And the system’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot gives all Crossland X occupants fast internet connectivity with their mobile devices. The state-of-the-art IntelliLink infotainment technology includes an up to 8-inch color touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible smartphone integration. And to keep the mobile phone charged up, a fixture in the center console for wireless inductive charging can be ordered for the Crossland X (€125).
