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.

Like the Hybrid, the Hybrid4 has a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine with an electric motor driving the front wheels, but adds another electric motor for the rears. This takes total power up to 296bhp to give hot-hatch scaring pace. The electric only range is up to 35 miles and CO2 emissions just 34g/km with performance still adequate when powered by batteries alone. We wish the switch between power sources was smoother and it was cheaper to buy, though.
