2017 Opel Crossland X is now on sale in Germany with starting price of €16,850

Article by Christian A., on March 14, 2017

When it was announced in January, the Opel Crossland X was seen as an actual rival to the Renault Captur and the Peugeot 2008. Yet, the Opel Crossland X (Vauxhall Crossland X for its United Kingdom-bound version) shares its underpinnings with the Peugeot 2008, thanks to a collaboration agreement inked between Opel and the PSA Group in 2012.

In a twist of fate, the new Opel Crossland X will be a part of the PSA Group – a result of the impending acquisition of Opel/Vauxhall by the French carmaker from General Motors. PSA’s acquisition of Opel from GM was very big news, and thanks to that, a lot of attention has been given to the new model that would mark a new beginning for the would-be larger French company. Following the footsteps of its Opel siblings, the new Opel Crossland X is now bound to enter the sub-compact crossover market, and it is slightly cheaper than the Peugeot 2008. In fact, the new Opel Crossland X could now be availed in Germany at a starting price of €16,850 (RRP including VAT in Germany).

Interested customers may choose to power their Crossland X with any of the three 1.2-liter three-cylinder gasoline engines or any of the two 1.6-liter four-cylinder diesel mills. The three 1.2-liter three-cylinder gasoline engines include a unit delivering 60 kW (81 hp) of max output; a turbocharged mill providing 81 kW (110 hp) in output and 205 Nm of peak torque; and a turbocharged powerplant generating 96 kW (130 hp) of output and 230 Nm of torque.

The diesel lineup, meanwhile, includes a 1.6-liter turbocharged diesel engine that is able to develop 73 kW (99 hp) of max output and 254 Nm of peak torque as well as a more powerful turbocharged version that could generate up to 88 kW (120 hp) of output and at most 300 Nm of torque.

The most powerful gasoline-powered version of the new Opel Crossland X – locked to a six-speed manual transmission – could sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 9.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 206 km/h. On the other hand, the most powerful diesel-powered version of the Opel Crossland X – which comes with a six-speed manual transmission – could dash from 80 km/h to 120 km/h (mid-range acceleration) in 10.5 seconds on the way to reaching a maximum speed of 186 km/h.

Starting at the Edition trim level, the Opel OnStar comes as standard on the Opel Crossland X. Opel OnStar offers telematics services like 24-hour Emergency Call Service and remote control operation of door locks, as well as a new personal service that allows passengers to contact the Opel OnStar advisor for booking a hotel or finding a parking space.

Cool Crossover: Launch of New Opel Crossland X

The new Opel Insignia Grand Sport, new Insignia Sports Tourer, new electric star Ampera-e – the big Opel model offensive "7 in 17" with seven new models in 2017 is in full swing. Now the next newcomer of the year is here, the all-new Opel Crossland X. The crossover model combines practicality and generous space with the cool look of an SUV. It is the second member of the Opel X family, joining the bestseller Mokka X. The Crossland X is entering the booming sub-compact SUV market and is available to order from €16,850 (all prices RRP incl. VAT in Germany).

The Opel Crossland X comes to market with a choice of five engines. All three-cylinder gasoline and four-cylinder diesel units are ultra-modern, all-aluminum engines with top fuel efficiency.

The entry-level gasoline unit is the 1.2-liter engine with 60 kW/81 hp (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 6,4 l/100 km, extra-urban 4,4 l/100 km, combined 5,1 l/100 km; 114 g/km CO2). Next is the 1.2 Turbo with gasoline direct injection in three different drive variants. The especially economical ECOTEC version comes with a friction-optimized five-speed transmission (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 5,6 l/100 km, extra-urban 4,2 l/100 km, combined 4,8 l/100 km; 109 g/km CO2) and delivers 81 kW/110 hp. Just as powerful is the three-cylinder 1.2‑liter Turbo combined with a six-speed automatic gearbox (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 6,3 l/100 km, extra-urban 4,8 l/100 km, combined 5,3 l/100 km; 121 g/km CO2). Both engines already deliver their peak torque of 205 Nm at 1,500 rpm, with 95 percent of that available across the most often used plateau up to 3,500 rpm. With plenty of power at low rpm, the Opel Crossland X boasts excellent handling and extremely economical driving.

The top-of-the-line gasoline engine is the 1.2 Turbo with 96 kW/130 hp, maximum torque of 230 Nm from 1,750 rpm (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 5,7 l/100 km, extra-urban 4,6 l/100 km, combined 5,0 l/100 km; 114 g/km CO2) and six-speed manual transmission. This takes the Opel Crossland X from zero to 100 in 9.1 seconds and to a maximum speed of 206 km/h.

The lineup also includes three turbo-charged diesel engines. The 1.6 diesel is available from €19,300, has 73 kW/99 hp and offers maximum torque of 254 Nm at 1,750 rpm (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 4,5 l/100 km, extra-urban 3,4 l/100 km, combined 3,8 l/100 km; 99 g/km CO2). There is also an even more economical ECOTEC variant of this engine with Start/Stop that emits just 93 g/km CO2 (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 4,1 l/100 km, extra-urban 3,3 l/100 km, combined 3,6 l/100 km). The most powerful diesel is the 1.6 with 88 kW/120 hp (NEDC cycle fuel consumption: urban 4,6 l/100 km, extra-urban 3,6 l/100 km, combined 4,0 l/100 km; 103 g/km CO2) and maximum torque of 300 Nm for strong pulling power in all situations. Together with the six-speed manual transmission, the Opel Crossland X 1.6 diesel completes mid-range acceleration from 80 to 120 km/h, which is especially important for overtaking maneuvers, in 10.5 seconds and has a maximum speed of 186 km/h.

Personal assistance and top connectivity with Opel Onstar

Opel OnStar is standard in the Crossland X beginning at the Edition trim level. In addition to the familiar telematics services such as 24-hour Emergency Call Service and remote control operation of door locks, the horn and lights, OnStar now offers even more services. The new Crossland X also marks the introduction of a new personal service that enables passengers to simply contact the Opel OnStar advisor to, for example, choose a hotel and reserve a room1 or find a parking space2. And the system’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot gives all Crossland X occupants fast internet connectivity with their mobile devices. The state-of-the-art IntelliLink infotainment technology includes an up to 8-inch color touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible smartphone integration. And to keep the mobile phone charged up, a fixture in the center console for wireless inductive charging can be ordered for the Crossland X (€125).
