What Car? says...
You wait ages for one to come along and then two arrive together. No, no, we're not talking about buses on this occasion but SUVs and, specifically, the Vauxhall Crossland. Because the Crossland isn't the only small SUV that Vauxhall makes; there's the Mokka, too.
So what are the differences between them? Well, the Crossland is the cheaper option and the more sensible one in some other ways, too, thanks to its bigger boot and the option to have sliding and reclining rear seats. The Mokka, meanwhile, is designed for those less fussed about practicality and more bothered by funky styling, bright paint colours and the choice of a pure electric version (the Mokka-e).
Both cars are actually based on the Peugeot 2008, except the Crossland sits on the previous-generation 2008 (2013-19) underpinnings whereas the Mokka is based on the latest car. If you're wondering why there's a French connection it's because, these days, the Vauxhall brand operates under the PSA umbrella, which also covers Citroën, DS and Peugeot.
So, should you choose the Vauxhall Crossland over the multitude of other small SUV rivals, including, but not limited to, the Ford Puma, Nissan Juke, Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Roc?
