Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

The Vauxhall Grandland price starts higher than the Nissan Qashqai but undercuts the Ford Kuga, Kia SportageHyundai Tucson and the premium Volvo XC40. However, because the Grandland has some of the poorest predicted resale values in the class, you might not find such good PCP deals

The PHEV is too expensive for us to recommend to private buyers buying outright. A monthly finance contract can make more sense, and if you’re a company car driver, it's a tempting proposition because of the low company car tax rate compared with more conventional rivals, including the mild-hybrid Volvo XC40 B4.

Our favourite trim is GS Line, which is still reasonably priced and adds a host of desirable features, including a larger 10in infotainment system, built-in sat-nav, a rear-view camera and an ergonomic driver’s seat.

Range-topping Ultimate trim gets some genuinely useful gadgets, but it’s simply too expensive to recommend.

Reliability

Vauxhall as a brand finished joint 22nd out of 30 car makers in our 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey

Like all Vauxhalls, the Grandland comes with a three-year or 60,000-mile warranty and a year of roadside assistance. That matches the cover provided by most manufacturers, but can’t beat the five-year warranties offered by Hyundai and Toyota, or Kia’s class-leading seven-year package.

Overview

The Vauxhall Grandland is competitively priced in most trims, and is well equipped and spacious enough for most families. However, it's hard to ignore the fractionally cheaper Skoda Karoq or more practical Kia Sportage – both of which have nicer interiors and are sharper to drive. Company car drivers who are in the market for a family SUV will find the hybrid Grandland models cost-effective.

  • Generous standard equipment
  • Regular Hybrid is a cost-effective company car
  • Low CO2 emissions
  • Noisier engines than rivals
  • Sluggish infotainment system
  • PHEV is tricky to brake smoothly in
