Vauxhall Grandland X
Vauxhall Grandland X

The Grandland X is Vauxhall's largest SUV, and a rival for cars including the Peugeot 3008, Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Karoq.

In fact, the Grandland X has plenty in common with the 3008, because both use the same underpinnings. That means that like the Peugeot, the Vauxhall doesn't come with the option of four-wheel drive – although there is a grip control system available – and both use the same range of engines.

Our full 16-point review can tell you what the Grandland X is like to drive, what it's like inside and how practical it is, but here we're going to be talking about equipment. If you go for our recommended Tech Line Nav version of the Grandland X, you'll already have most of the things you want, including an 8.0in touchscreen with sat-nav, front parking sensors and a powered tailgate. Here are our recommendations for adding more luxury, however, without blowing your budget.

Vauxhall Grandland X metallic paint

Metallic paint (£570)

As standard, your Grandland X will come with black paint, but you can upgrade to white paint for £285. We'd go further, though, and choose from one of the four metallic options on offer. They'll cost you £570 each and, as well as improving the look of your car, they add value too. You can pay more and opt for more premium options, but we wouldn't bother.

Vauxhall Grandland X reversing camera

Park and Go Pack 2 (£550)

While front sensors come as standard on Tech Line Nav models, this pack adds a reversing camera for added peace of mind, more speakers and even a self-parking system to do the job for you.
