Vauxhall Grandland X hatchback front space
There’s more than enough head and leg room to accommodate taller adults and the interior is wide enough to ensure you and your front passenger won’t bang elbows.
Like the Peugeot 3008, the glovebox is tiny. But unlike its cousin, the central storage bin under the front armrest is also small and there are fewer cubbies for your odds and ends.
Vauxhall Grandland X hatchback rear space
Those two are slightly wider as well and consequently better for seating three adults abreast, although the Grandland X’s flat floor does give the middle passenger plenty of foot space.
The optional panoramic glass sunroof eats into rear head room a little, so avoid it if you regularly carry adults of above-average height.
Vauxhall Grandland X hatchback seating flexibility
Folding rear seats are standard, even though these are split 60/40 rather than the more useful 40/20/40 arrangement that some rivals offer.
It’s easy to get the backrests down, with handy quick-release levers next to the tailgate opening. And, once down, they lie completely flat with no steps, as long as you have the adjustable boot floor (included with every trim except SE) in its highest setting.
Unlike the Tiguan, the Grandland X doesn’t have rear seats that slide to let you change the balance between rear leg room and luggage space.
Vauxhall Grandland X hatchback boot space
While the boot isn’t quite the biggest in the class, it’s still spacious enough to fit a buggy with ease or a couple of large suitcases. It’s a practical shape as well, with no awkward intrusions.
Avoid the entry-level SE model and, in addition to the height-adjustable boot floor, you get a ski hatch through from the boot to the rear seats and a powered tailgate, which you can open with a swipe of your foot underneath the rear bumper.
