Review

The Grandland X offers a similar blend of comfort and practicality as the Peugeot 3008 on which it’s based, but there are better all-rounders in this class

get the best price

Trim: SE Premium

This is the most basically equipped version of the Grandland X, but you still get 18in alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, high beam assist and cruise control. You also get a 7.0in touchscreen with a DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but no sat-nav. Disappointingly, it doesn't come with automatic emergency braking.

Engine: 1.5 Turbo D

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.
