2018 VAUXHALL GRANDLAND X

MARKET AND MODEL

  • All-new SUV with a sporty design and crisp proportions
  • Spacious interior to carry five passengers and their luggage
  • Available to order now priced from £22,310 on-the-road

With a sporty design and rugged looks, Vauxhall’s new SUV, the Grandland X, has elevated seating for five people, generous luggage space, good all-round visibility and a raft of safety technologies. At 4.48 metres long, it is the largest SUV in Vauxhall’s range, offering even more cabin space than the 20 centimetre-shorter Mokka X and Crossland X.

The new model will be a genuine contender in the booming SUV segment and is aimed at retail and true fleet customers, with a 75:25 split in favour of the former. True fleet is the traditional user-chooser company car driver, the larger fleets excluding rental and Motability. Sitting at the top of Vauxhall’s X family of SUVs, the Grandland X will compete with rivals including the Nissan Qashqai, Ford Kuga and Kia Sportage among others.

Available to order now, the Grandland X is priced from £22,310 on-the-road and will arrive in Vauxhall showrooms in December. Standard equipment includes LED daytime running lights, camera-based lane departure warning, road sign recognition, intelligent cruise control, and air conditioning with particulate and odour filter.

The Grandland X also introduces Vauxhall’s innovative IntelliGrip traction control system to the range. The optional electronic system ensures optimum road grip in diverse driving situations, and adapts the torque distribution to the front wheels depending on which of the five driving modes has been selected. This ensures the best traction and stable handling on any surface.

Vauxhall’s OnStar service is standard across the range, giving drivers exceptional connectivity when on the move, while also providing a personal assistant service, stolen vehicle assistance and automatic crash response.

 

INTELLIGRIP AND POWERTRAINS

  • New IntelliGrip electronic traction control with five modes for outstanding grip
  • Efficient turbo-powered engines available across the range
  • Choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions

Vauxhall introduces its fully electronic IntelliGrip traction control on Grandland X. It ensures that the car always remains stable no matter what the surface, as the wheels are always able to find optimal grip.

The driver selects the preferred driving mode via a centre dial and the electronics immediately adapt engine and transmission control, torque distribution and ESP settings to the selected mode, ensuring optimum contact to the driving surface.

There are five modes available to the driver to select from:

  • Normal/On-road: ‘Normal’ mode is activated as soon as the Grandland X is started. The electronic stability program (ESP) and traction control are calibrated for normal road driving conditions.
  • Snow: ‘Snow mode’ ensures the best possible traction on icy and snowy surfaces. Traction control regulates the slip of the front wheels, slows the spinning wheel down and transfers the torque to the other front wheel.
  • Mud: This mode allows more slip on muddy surfaces, enabling the wheel with the least traction to spin when the vehicle is launching to ensure that mud is removed and the tyres can re-establish traction. Meanwhile, the wheel with the highest grip is provided with the highest torque.
  • Sand: Sand mode allows a small amount of simultaneous wheel spin on the two driven wheels, enabling the Grandland X to advance and reducing the risk of sinking.
  • ESP Off: This enables the deactivation of ESP and traction aids to give the driver complete autonomy. For safety reasons, IntelliGrip automatically switches back to ‘normal mode’ at speeds above 31mph.

The system adapts torque distribution to the front wheels according to the selected mode, allowing slip when necessary and changing the accelerator pedal control map. In any mode, it creates the optimum balance between spinning and gripping wheels, allowing the Grandland X to adapt to the prevailing driving situation and increase safety and driving comfort by guaranteeing traction and stability at all times. IntelliGrip electronic traction control is lighter than a conventional all-wheel drive system, which helps reduce fuel consumption.

Powertrains

At launch, Vauxhall customers will have the choice of two engines – a 1.2-litre turbo petrol with 130PS (NEDC fuel consumption urban 44.1-47.1mpg, extra-urban 57.6-62.8mpg, combined 51.4mpg-55.4mpg, 127-117 g/km CO2) and a 1.6-litre turbo diesel with 120PS (NEDC fuel consumption urban 55.4-60.1mpg, extra-urban 67.3-80.7mpg, combined 61.4-70.6mpg, 118-104 g/km CO2). Both turbo units can be combined with either the six-speed manual or a friction-optimised six-speed automatic transmission and come with Start/Stop as standard.

Improvements to the electronic injection unit and variable inlet and outlet valves have optimised the combustion in both engines, enabling lower fuel consumption and lower emissions. The integrated exhaust manifold and all-aluminium construction have both created space and weight savings to further improve efficiency and performance. Additional efficiency enhancing aspects have been applied to the engines, including the DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating that is applied to various components to help reduce mechanical friction and maintain performance.

Meeting the stringent Euro 6 emissions standards and returning impressive fuel consumption, the Grandland X is one of the most frugal compact SUVs on the market. However, this is not to the detriment of performance, as the 1.2 direct injection turbo produces 130PS from three cylinders and generates maximum torque of 230Nm at 1,750rpm. The 1.6 turbo diesel unit generates 120PS from four cylinders and delivers 300Nm maximum torque at 1,750rpm.

After the initial launch, Vauxhall will extend the powertrain offering, with a top-of-the-range diesel with even more power.

Transmissions

The Vauxhall Grandland X will initially offer the choice between a precise six-speed gearbox and a smooth six-speed automatic transmission, available with both engines. The newly developed, friction-optimised transmissions help reduce fuel consumption and running costs, while also delivering a refined ride. The Quickshift technology of the six-speed automatic gearbox enables quick up-shifts under acceleration, and also offers the function to manually change gears to suits drivers as necessary.

 

DESIGN

  • Robust, sporty design with crisp proportions
  • Raised seating position with good all-round visibility
  • Elegant, upmarket interior with high quality materials

Meeting the needs of families with an active lifestyle, the all-new Grandland X SUV has off-road appeal, a raised seating position, good all-round visibility, and plenty of room for up to five passengers and their luggage.

“Our goals for the Grandland X were to create a rugged yet dynamic design, while also managing to balance style and functionality,” said Brit Mark Adams, Vauxhall/Opel’s Vice President, Design. “We also aimed for an elegant, upmarket feel with carefully crafted surfaces and interfaces, plus the consistent use of high quality materials throughout.”

At 4,477mm long, 1,856mm wide and 1,609mm high, the new Vauxhall Grandland X is a robust-looking SUV from every perspective. On the bold grille, chrome winglets embrace the brand logo and flow outwards to the slim, double-wing LED headlamps, visually widening the front and giving the Grandland X a powerful, solid stance. The bonnet features the signature Vauxhall crease – an expression of the Vauxhall design philosophy of technical precision meets sculptural artistry.

The side profile echoes the attractive combination of rugged SUV charm and elegant lines. Muscular, sculpted wheel arches and protective cladding on the lower body give the Grandland X real off-road appeal. In contrast, clear lines and the refined blade on the lower doors identify the new Grandland X as a member of the Vauxhall family. The optional two-tone finish, with the roof in contrasting black, adds an extra touch of personalisation.

The smooth flow into the rest of the body is emphasised by the “breakthrough” C-pillar, which creates a dynamic bond to the rear. The rear view of the Grandland X shows what real SUV design means, with a wide stance, protective cladding, and slim LED taillights, underlining the newcomer’s sporty, muscular character.

“At the rear, the sleek C-pillars, ‘floating’ roof and slender LED tail lamps, which are set in a clean concave tailgate surface, give the Grandland X a dynamic, sporty appearance that is so important in the SUV market segment,” added Adams.

The Grandland X has the same quality on the inside: the instrument panel and centre console with touchscreen are clearly laid out and horizontally aligned to the driver. The centre stack has three horizontal rows of controls for fast and intuitive access to infotainment, climate control and chassis functions.

Drivers and passengers benefit from the elevated seating position typical of an SUV, which ensures good visibility in all situations. Its long wheelbase of 2,675mm means the compact class SUV has plenty of space for up to five people, while the luggage compartment (with a load volume from 514 litres to a maximum of 1,652 litres) offers generous room for luggage and sport equipment.

“The interior of the Grandland X features an attractive harmony of style and functionality,” said Adams. “Access is easy, even for taller occupants and the driver and front-seat passenger can enjoy the additional comfort of optional ergonomic AGR seats. The infotainment system display is positioned high up in the instrument panel for optimum visibility while the surrounding décor gives the fingers a stable base to rest on, allowing for convenient operation.”

 

DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS AND CONNECTIVITY

  • Multiple driver assistance systems increase safety for driver and other occupants
  • Innovative LED AFL headlamps improve visibility in any road situation
  • Vauxhall OnStar with features including hotel room booking and parking space search

The Grandland X offers a selection of ultra-modern assistance and comfort features. Automotatic Cruise Control with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking, Driver Drowsiness Alert, and Advanced Park Assist are just some highlights.

AGR-certified premium ergonomic front seats, heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats and smart tailgate, that opens with a kick, all ensure driver and passenger comfort.

Grandland X drivers and passengers can enjoy outstanding connectivity that is now typical across the Vauxhall range, with the latest generation of IntelliLink systems and the personal connectivity and service assistant Vauxhall OnStar, which now includes new services such as hotel booking and parking space search. Smartphones can easily be integrated to the infotainment system and charged wirelessly (as an option) via inductive charging on handsets with this function.

Vauxhall continues to deliver on its commitment to lead in lighting technology, equipping the Grandland X with the innovative Adaptive Forward Lighting LED headlamps (available as an option). Functions such as cornering light, high beam assist and auto levelling guarantee optimal illumination of the road ahead.

The Grandland X offers safe driving fun on every surface, thanks to the optional electronic Grip Control that ensures traction in diverse driving situations. The driver has a choice of five driving modes, for each one the system adapts the torque distribution to the front wheels, allows wheel-spin if necessary, and, with the automatic transmission, adjusts shift points as well as throttle response. This ensures traction and stable handling regardless of the road surface.

Help from the outside

One of the driver assistance systems available on the Grandland X to make journeys in urban areas even safer is Forward Collision Alert with pedestrian detection and Autonomous Emergency Braking. Via the front camera, the system monitors the traffic situation in front of the vehicle and is able to detect mobile and parked cars as well as pedestrians (adults and children). If the distance between an obstacle ahead – be that a vehicle or pedestrian – rapidly decrease, the system utilises visual and audible warnings, and brakes automatically as necessary.

Driver Drowsiness Alert also monitors the vehicle and alerts the driver if the vehicles movement and speed indicates that the driver may be tired. Active when driving above 40mph, the system also notifies the driver after two hours of sustained driver above that speed, suggesting a break every hour after that point until a break is taken. Louder and more persistent alerts are issued if the system detects dangerous driving, which again can be reset by the driving speed being reduced for a sustained period, or a break being taken.

Vauxhall’s innovative LED AFL headlamps features in the Grandland X, ensuring the best possible light performance in every condition. The LED technology automatically changes the light distribution and direction based on the direction and speed of the vehicle, while also reading the road situation to avoid distracting other road users. The camera-based high beam also helps to prevent the beam dazzling ongoing traffic, and overcomes the need for the driver to manually switch between full beam and normal headlamps. In total, the LED AFL headlamps in the Grandland X provide seven modes; country light, motorway light, town light/pedestrian light, cornering light, adverse weather light, dynamic bend light and high beam assist.

The external assistance features found on the Grandland X are rounded off with Side Blind Spot Alert and Lane Departure Warning, which reduce the possibility of overlooking, or encroaching upon, other vehicles in dense traffic. Ultrasonic sensors detect all other road users and warn the driver via an amber icon in the exterior door mirror, while Lane Departure Warning issues audible and visible signals if it registers that the lane is being left unintentionally on a number of occasions. You also get resistance through the steering wheel.

Supporting everyday driving

Further driver assistance systems include Traffic Sign Recognition, which assists the driver when navigating both urban and rural areas. The system clearly displays the speed limit for the current road, notifying the driver via the information cluster. When used in conjunction with the Grandland X’s Cruise Control with speed limiter, driving is made more enjoyable and speeding can be easily avoided. Intelligent Speed Adaptation automatically detects when a new speed limit comes into effect, notifying the driver and giving them the option to adjust the vehicle’s speed as necessary (when using cruise control)

The extra visibility enables the driver to see other road users on both sides of the vehicle, so the vehicle can be manoeuvred in safety. Full visibility is possible with the optional 360-degree camera. To provide the driver with further support when parking their vehicle, the Grandland X features the latest generation of Advanced Park Assist. Recognising suitable parking spaces, the system is then able to automatically park the vehicle, requiring the driver to operate the pedals only. Advanced Park Assist can also manoeuvre the Grandland X out of a spot when bay parked between two other vehicles.

Connectivity and convenience

The Grandland X also offers drivers and occupants state-of-the-art infotainment systems, including Radio R 4.0 with audio, USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The latest generation of Vauxhall’s R 4.0 IntelliLink and Navi 5.0 IntelliLink infotainment packages come with up to eight-inch colour touchscreens, and allow seamless integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto via compatible smartphones, which can be charged wirelessly.

Vauxhall OnStar is also available across the Grandland X range, with the personal connectivity and service assistant offering a powerful 4G/LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot so that occupants can remain connected while travelling. OnStar is not just for mobile connectivity though, providing drivers with additional safety features including Automatic Crash Response, where an OnStar ‘angel’ is connected to the car when the airbags are deployed, with the capability to deploy emergency services to the vehicle’s location if necessary. The latest additions to the OnStar service package include the ability for a driver to book hotels while on the go, and reserve parking spots ahead of reaching their destination. That can all be completed by connecting to an OnStar advisor – who can also remotely update the car’s satellite navigation – at the touch of a button to ensure minimal driver distraction.
