What Car? says...
The Vauxhall Grandland was rather late to the family SUV party, turning up more than 10 years after the Nissan Qashqai sent out invites.
The Grandland – previously called the Grandland X – gives you an elevated driving position and chunky bodywork, and is one of three SUVs in the car maker's range. As its name suggests, it's the biggest in the line-up, and offers more space inside than the Vauxhall Mokka and Vauxhall Crossland.
All variants currently available are front-wheel drive, although a more powerful PHEV with four-wheel drive will arrive later. If you plan to venture off the beaten track, we’d suggest looking at the Range Rover Evoque instead.
With all that in mind, should the Vauxhall Grandland be at the top of your shortlist, and how does it compare with the best family SUVs? Well, that’s what we'll tell you over the next few pages of this review, as we rate its performance, handling, practicality and more.
Once you've decided which model is for you, make sure you get it for the best price by searching our free What Car? New Car Buying service. It could save you a bundle of cash on hundreds of new cars, and there are plenty of new family SUV deals.
