The new Opel Crossland has been unveiled, wearing the German firm’s latest “Vizor” family face.
Like the new Mokka positioned just above it, the second-generation Crossland drops the “X” suffix from its name.
Interestingly, the Rüsselsheim-based firm will introduce a fresh GS Line+ trim level with this new model, which adds items such as black 17-inch light-alloy wheels, a black roof, LED taillamps, roof rails and ergonomic seats up front.
The rear pews, meanwhile, boast individual sliding and reclining functions; they can be moved by up to 150 mm fore and aft, allowing claimed luggage capacity to range from 410 to 520 litres. Dropping the rear seats increases packing space to a claimed 1 255 litres.
Though the Crossland runs on a PSA Group platform, Opel says it has developed new springs and dampers for the McPherson strut front suspension and the torsion-beam rear axle. A five-mode IntelliGrip adaptive traction control system will furthermore be offered in some markets.
Inside, Opel says a range of infotainment systems will be offered, from a basic Bluetooth-enabled radio set-up to a mid-spec multimedia system and the range-topping Multimedia Navi Pro with an 8,0-inch touchscreen.
In Europe, petrol powertrain options will include a naturally aspirated 1,2-litre unit with 61 kW and 118 N.m (employing a five-speed manual gearbox), and a turbocharged 1,2-litre engine with either 81 kW/205 N.m (in six-speed manual guise) or 96 kW/230 N.m (in both manual and auto form).
Diesel options for that market will include a 1,5-litre motor generating 81 kW and 250 N.m in six-speed manual configuration and 88 kW and 300 N.m in six-speed automatic guise.
