Review

The Vauxhall Grandland X is competitively priced in most trim levels, and is well equipped and spacious enough for most families. However, it's hard to ignore the fractionally cheaper Skoda Karoq, which has a nicer interior, is sharper to drive and has a range of more refined engines. Company car drivers who are in the market for a family SUV will find the hybrid Grandland X models cost-effective.

get the best price

Despite undercutting SE Premium trim, this model aimed at company car users gets a larger 8.0in touchscreen with nav, upgraded 16-way adjustable front seats, ambient lighting, a two-level boot floor, a rear central armrest with ski flap, different 18in alloys, electrically folding door mirrors and a safety pack. This pack adds automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance and a blind spot alert warning system.

You might expect this petrol engine to feel underpowered given its small capacity but, in reality, it is perfectly adequate. It also averages more than 50mpg in official fuel economy tests, no matter which wheels, tyres and gearbox you choose. A 1.0-litre Skoda Karoq or Seat Ateca is punchier, let alone a 1.5, however.
