Introduction

What Car? says...

Having only joined the market in 2017, the Vauxhall Grandland X was rather late to the family SUV party. However, it’s closely related to the Peugeot 3008 – both cars are based on the same platform – so Vauxhall could hit the ground running with a bit of a head-start. 

Vauxhall sells two other SUVs: the Crossland X and Mokka X. However, as its name suggests, the Grandland X is the biggest, competing with the likes of the Nissan Qashqai, Skoda Karoq and, naturally, the Peugeot 3008.

The Grandland X shares some of its engines with the 3008, too: one petrol and one diesel, both of which are front-wheel drive, with the option of an ‘Intelligrip’ switchable traction system to help in slippery conditions. And also like the 3008, there’s a pair of plug-in hybrids to choose from, one with front-wheel drive, and one, the Hybrid4, with four-wheel drive.

There’s plenty of choice, then, but does the Grandland X have what it takes to stand out from the family SUV crowd or is it likely to wind up forgotten in the corner? Read on over the next few pages to find out.

And, remember, if you want to buy a Grandland X or any of its competitors, make sure you head to our New Car Buying pages to see how much you could save.
