Review

The Vauxhall Crossland is a creditable car in some respects, offering good equipment levels, excellent seating flexibility on select trims and a sizeable boot, but the competition has, in the main caught up, run it into the kerb and driven off into the sunset. The worst thing is that you have to pay extra for safety kit that should be standard these days, but it's also mediocre to drive and the rear seats are cramped. If you can get a fantastic deal that makes it much cheaper than anything else then fine, we respect why you would. Otherwise, stick to the Ford Puma, the Skoda Kamiq or the Volkswagen T-Roc – to name but a few of the better alternatives – instead.

get the best price

Avoid SE trim because of its lack of safety equipment mentioned above. It does come reasonably equipped otherwise, with air-conditioning, 16in alloy wheels, auto lights and wipers, an automatically-dimming rear-view mirror, cruise control, LED headlights, a 7.0in touchscreen, six speakers, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.

The entry-level non-turbocharged 1.2 (83PS) petrol has a fairly measly 82bhp and takes 14.0sec to get from 0-62mph, so we'd advise at least stepping up to the 1.2 (110PS) Turbo instead.
