How much does it cost to run a Vauxhall Grandland X hatchback?
Fuel economy is very competitive with other small SUVs, no doubt helped by the fact the Grandland X is front-wheel-drive-only.
The turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol engine returns a combined fuel economy figure of 45.6mpg; if you need better fuel economy, you’ll need to go diesel. There are three on offer: a 1.6-litre, a 1.5-litre and a 2.0-litre. The 1.6 is the most frugal engine in the Grandland X range on paper, at 70.6mpg, while the 1.5 that replaced it averages 54.3mpg. The 2.0-litre' s figure is 47.9mpg. Alternatively, the plug-in hybrid officially manages 204mpg, but you'll only come close to achieving that figure if you regularly charge it up and use petrol sparingly.
On paper, the plug-in hybrid is the one that puffs out the least greenhouse gasses, at 34g/km of CO2, but it's arguably the 1.6-litre diesel that will be more relevant to used car buyers at the moment, and that emits 104g/km. The 1.5-litre diesel that replaced it spits out slightly more at 108g/km, while the more potent 2.0-litre posts a figure of 122g/km. The petrol 1.2 emits 115g/km.
All models will have been registered after 1 April 2017, so the same flat rate fee will apply to all examples. However, higher-specced versions of the Hybrid4 plug-in hybrid Grandland X cost more than £40,000 when new, subjecting these versions to an additional surcharge until such time as the vehicle reaches six years of age, when it will then go back down to the standard flat rate fee.

Servicing costs are competitive with rivals such as Skoda and Volkswagen. There are different prices depending upon whether you have a petrol or diesel engine and if you need an interim, main or major service. For petrol models, these are £160, £265 and £305 respectively; diesel models are a little more expensive at £170, £295 and £365 respectively. If you have an engine that requires a fuel additive as part of the service, then you’ll need to add £19.20 to the cost of a service. Alternatively, you can also pay monthly for a three-year servicing plan. This will set you back £19 a month for petrols and £22 for diesels. Servicing is required annually or every 16,000 miles.
Insurance is competitive with most rivals, although a number of Volkswagen Tiguan models sit in lower groups than the Grandland X. The entry-level 1.2-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesels start in insurance group 14, rising to 15 for the more refined 1.5-litre diesel. The bigger 2.0-litre diesel is group 22, while the powerful plug-in hybrid model is the most expensive to insure since it starts in group 29.
