The modelRead full 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 rivals cars have, 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. 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, we'd understand you going for it. Otherwise, stick to the Ford Puma, the Skoda Kamiq or the Volkswagen T-Roc – to name but a few of the better alternatives.
The trimSee full equipment
We'd avoid SE Edition trim because of its lack of safety equipment. It come reasonably equipped other than that, 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 engineSee full engine specs
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.
