The modernized Opel Crossland will impress with the modernized Opel Vizor-style mask, but it will also offer several technical modifications and new, more sporty GS Line + equipment.
The rejuvenated Opel Crossland, a compact crossover that attracts customers especially for its practical and spacious interior, is the first well-established model of the brand to take on a new mask in the “Opel Vizor” style, following the example of the recently introduced Mokka model. At the same time, it should become the hallmark of all new Opel models in the future
The mask in the “Vizor” style brings a decent simplification of the bow and also its more ostentatious appearance, which is due to the glossy black lacquered closed radiator grille with chrome framing, which seamlessly connects to the LED headlights. At the back, the carmaker dimmed the lights and added a glossy black paint for the fifth door (in combination with a black painted roof).
Other innovations include silver-painted “protective” bumper plastics (available in selected equipment), LED fog lights with chrome decor (again in selected equipment) and chrome door trim. Customers can then order new 16 “and 17” alloy wheels for the wheel arches.
The interior attracts a combination of comfort, mainly thanks to the ergonomic front seats with AGR certification, and variability. The rear sliding bench mainly contributes to this, with the backrest divided in a ratio of 60/40, which can be moved by up to 150 millimeters in a short time. You can increase the luggage compartment with a basic volume of 410 liters to 520 liters in no time. However, when the seats are folded down, the size will increase to 1255 liters.
For sports enthusiasts, the car should be available in the new GS Line +, which offers 17 “alloy wheels, a black roof, AGR-certified seats, LED tail lights and roof racks. In addition, the rejuvenated Crossland underwent a modernization of the chassis, which received new shock absorbers and springs on the front and rear axles. In combination with the new steering column and the modified steering with more significant feedback, the new Crossland should offer a more interesting experience behind the wheel.
In addition, early in next year, it should be possible to order the new Crossland X with the new IntelliGrip traction control system, which offers five setting modes to ensure better traction and stability in different conditions. There is no lack of Normal, Snow, Mud, Sand mode or the option to turn off ESP up to a speed of 50 km / h.
Systems such as adaptive Full-LED headlights with cornering function, head-up display, front-collision assistant with automatic braking and pedestrian detection, lane monitoring system, blind spot monitoring, 180-degree reversing camera should also help with safety. , automatic Park Assist or cruise control with speed limiter.
Systems such as Multimedia Radio or the top-of-the-line Multimedia Navi Pro infotainment with an 8.0-inch touch screen will contribute to greater comfort on the road. There is also support for Android Auto / Apple CarPlay connectivity, wireless charging, OpelConnect online services or LIVE Navigation services for information on transport, fuel prices, easy assistance calls, etc.
The offer of three engines, two petrol and one diesel, remains under the hood. The basis is the atmospheric petrol atmosphere 1.2, which offers the highest output of 61 kW (83 hp) in combination with a five-speed manual. The second petrol engine is a supercharged 1.2 Turbo in performance versions of 81 kW (110 hp) and 96 kW (130 hp). Both engines are basically combined with a six-speed manual, but a more powerful version will also offer a six-speed automatic.
The only representative of diesel engines is the 1.5 Diesel unit, available in performance versions of 81 kW (110 hp) and 88 kW (120 hp). The weaker engine is paired exclusively with the six-speed manual, while the more powerful is offered only by the six-speed automatic. Both power units meet the stricter Euro 6d emission standards.
Opel should start accepting orders for the modernized Crossland model soon, which will be related to the announcement of the prices of the rejuvenated model. The first cars should then get to the dealership probably at the beginning of next year.
