What's the used Vauxhall Grandland X hatchback like?

Family cars have moved on from the humble hatchbacks of old; increasingly, buyers are turning towards SUVs for domestic duty: taking the children to school, picking up the weekly shop from the supermarket and taking the grandparents out at the weekend – these beasts will tackle it all. Perhaps this is why Vauxhall has been busy adding pseudo off-roaders to its range in order to court family car buyers. The Crossland X is the smallest, the Mokka X is the middle offering, but this Grandland X is its biggest.

The Grandland X competes with the likes of the award-winning Seat Ateca and the popular Nissan Qashqai. Just like its smaller Crossland X sibling, the Grandland X is based on an existing Peugeot platform, in this case the Peugeot 3008.

Equipment levels are good, though; all Grandland Xs have climate control, cruise control, alloy wheels, auto lights and wipers and rear parking sensors. Space inside is decent; there's plenty of shoulder room in the front, ample leg space in the back and a big boot for shopping and a child’s pushchair. Much like in its Peugeot sibling, the Grandland X's glove box is tiny due to space taken up by the fuse box. Unfortunately, there isn't much oddments storage in the rest of the interior to make up for this.
