Opel Reveals New Crossland X Small Crossover

After teasing it a few days ago, Opel’s sister brand Vauxhall has formally revealed the Crossland X crossover. Hitting the hot small crossover segment, this European-only model is replacing the Opel Meriva with a vehicle that is more en vogue with an SUV-like appearance.

The Crossland X is actually not based on anything from the General Motors mothership. Instead, it is actually based on the Peugeot 2008 and is the first vehicle to arrive from the strange alliance from GM and French automaker Peugeot. The next Opel to be based on a Peugeot will be the larger Grandland X, which will be revealed later this year and replace the Zafira MPV.

Details on the Crossland X are still fairly scarce, but it is expected to share its powertrain with its French cousins. It’s likely to borrow the Citroen C3 Picasso diesel engine.

From a technology and feature perspective this is a pure Opel model, down to offering OnStar with in-car WiFi. Other features include the latest version of Opel’s IntelliLink infotainment system and host of active safety features.

The Crossland X will go on sale across Europe this summer. Once in showrooms it will compete with vehicles such as a the Toyota C-HR, Renault Captur and Nissan Juke.

    Much better:



    Once again, GM wastes resources by producing two vehicles (Envision and Crossland X) that should be one vehicle.

    And what kind of name is Crossland X?


    "Crossland" sounds a bit English to me.

    Thank the goodness this is a Euro model only.

    I am also shocked that Peugeot has made the better looking platform mate.

    Whomever the designer in charge of making sure that ever single Opel is as bland as can be need to be shown the door.

    I mean even that concept that had the red tires up front and black tires out back was an exercise in boring....And this is what Buick has to look forward to?....smdh.

    so

    maybe it could be a GMC?

    Hmm... it's not bad for a tie-up vehicle. It's nicer looking than the Envision.
