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.

Top-tier Ultimate Edition has Alcantara trim, keyless entry and start, automatic high-beam assistance and blind-spot monitoring.

The extra power of the 128bhp 1.2 (130PS) Turbo is welcome. It pulls really well from around 2000rpm, so there's no need to thrash it to get up to speed. It’s the only petrol that’s available with the option of the six-speed automatic gearbox, which is fine but it doesn’t change down as swiftly as a few of the rival autos, including the Volkswagen T-Roc.
