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.

This 118bhp diesel can’t match the speed of the 1.2-litre petrol, but its solid mid-range shove pulls the Grandland X ably enough, even when it’s fully loaded. Average fuel economy is second only to the hybrid models and even then, the diesels will be more efficient than a plug-in with a flat battery.
