The Vauxhall Grandland X was rather late to the family SUV party, turning up more than 10 years after the Nissan Qashqai sent out invites. It's based on the same platform as the Peugeot 3008, though, so Vauxhall had a bit of a head start when it began working on the design.
The Grandland X is one of three SUVs sold by Vauxhall – the other two are the Crossland and the Mokka – and, as its name suggests, it's the biggest of the three. That puts it in competition with several similar sized rivals, so it has to stand out in a crowd that already includes the Hyundai Tucson, Peugeot 3008, Skoda Karoq and Volvo XC40.
Not that the Grandland X is particularly suited to off-roading, you understand. Most variants are front-wheel drive, so if you plan to venture off the beaten track in your family SUV, we’d suggest looking at the Range Rover Evoque instead.
So, with all of that said, should the Vauxhall Grandland X be at the top of your family SUV shortlist? Well, that’s what this review will tell you.
