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.

Mid-range SRi Edition adds bigger 17in alloy wheels, a black roof and LED fog lights on the outside, and a larger 8in infotainment system with sat-nav, dual-zone climate, and more comfortable front seats on the inside.

With a healthy 109bhp it revs willingly and feels punchy enough to be the engine of choice. 0-62mph takes 10.5sec – quicker than the Skoda Kamiq 1.0 TSI 95 – and it's pretty efficient, too.
