The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

Most people will find the basics in the Vauxhall Crossland pretty good. There's lots of steering wheel adjustment – for in and out as well as up and down – and seat height adjustment for all trims. If you go for anything other than the entry-level SE Edition trim, you get an 'Ergonomic Active Driver's seat'. That means it comes with adjustment for the seat squab angle and length, as well as electrically operated four-way lumbar adjustment. It's comfortable to sit in, but it doesn't have much in the way of side support to keep you propped up in corners.

Our biggest gripe is the lack of space between the clutch pedal and the side of the footwell – if you've got big feet you'll snag the clutch pedal every time you pass it in search of the footrest. The pedals are also offset to the right, which tends to annoy people with shorter legs.

Visibility, parking sensors and cameras

Visibility out of the Crossland isn't too bad at junctions because the side window-line is quite low and the middle pillars are set back far enough that they don't impede your view – the DS3 Crossback and Peugeot 2008 are much, much worse in that respect. 

The base of the Crossland's windscreen pillars are quite fat, though, and you sit so far from the windscreen that most people won't have a clue where the end of the bonnet is. The rear pillars are also quite big compared with on the Skoda Kamiq, which is one of the easiest small SUVs to see out of in any direction. You can improve matters in the Crossland if you go for an Elite Edition, which gets front and rear parking sensors and a 360-degree reversing camera.
