It’s easy to see why Vauxhall decided to add this second SUV to its range, given the popularity of such vehicles. What’s harder to make sense of is why it made it almost exactly the same size as its first, the Mokka X.

The official line is that the Mokka is a traditional SUV, with butch looks and the option of four-wheel drive, whereas the Crossland X is intended to be a more family-friendly choice.

To that end, all versions are front-wheel drive, which means there isn’t a driveshaft to the rear that robs the interior of usable space. The Crossland X also has deeper side windows than the Mokka to help create an airier feel inside, and it has smaller wheels, which have the potential to improve space, ride comfort and fuel efficiency.

The other notable thing about the Crossland X is that it’s the result of a collaboration with PSA, the owner of Citroën and Peugeot. It’s based on a platform that will also be used by the next Citroën C4 and Peugeot 2008, and even uses PSA engines: a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel.

Is that a good thing? Well, that’s what we’re going to explore in this review, along with how practical the Vauxhall Crossland X really is, and whether you should choose one over a Mokka, today's 2008 and other rivals such as the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Suzuki Vitara.
