Opel showcases all-new Crossland

Opel has revealed the first photos of its new Crossland, which will arrive at dealerships in early 2021. The new Crossland adopts the Opel’s new Vizor front grille, first showcased on the new Mokka. Replacing its predecessor the Crossland X, the new Opel Crossland gains an improved chassis, extra comfort, new technology features and a sporty SRi Line trim. Prices, powertrains and equipment will be announced closer to its early-2021 arrival.

James Brooks, Managing Director at Leeson Motors, Irish Importer of Opel, said: "The unveiling of the all-new Crossland heralds the start of a complete rejuvenation of the Opel model line-up. We look forward to 2021 with confidence in anticipation of all new Crossland, the all-new Mokka, an electrified Zafira-e Life and our first all-electric light commercial vehicle, the new Vivaro-e, with many more new models to follow within 12 months."

The new Crossland features the all-new Opel Vizor front face, which extends in one single sweep across the front of the vehicle, integrating the grille and headlights. The front Vizor face is paired to a strong rear visual identity featuring a new, high gloss black tailgate panel and stylish lights at the rear. 

New exterior style features include front and rear skid plates, LED front fog lamps, chrome door detailing and an all-new range of 16 and 17-inch light-alloy wheels. A new SRi Line version will boast black 16-inch light-alloy wheels, a black roof and red signature daylight opening, while the SRi Line + adds black 17-inch light-alloy wheels, ergonomic seats, adaptive full LED headlamps and LED taillights and roof rails.

Adaptive full-LED headlamps with cornering light, high beam assist and auto levelling ensure outstanding visibility in the dark. The Head Up display projects the most important data on speed, navigation and assistance systems into the driver's direct line of sight. Features to further increase peace of mind include Forward collision alert with Automatic Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Detection, Driver Drowsiness Alert, Side Blind Spot Alert, Panoramic Rear View Camera and Automatic Park Assist.

Crossland buyers can enjoy enhanced driving dynamics offered with the optional IntelliGrip. This adaptive traction control system enables optimum traction and stability on all kinds of surface, thanks to its five mode settings of Normal, Snow, Mud, Sand and ESP. The driver can choose between the settings to best suit road conditions. The Crossland is also offered with a range of infotainment systems including a top-of-the-line Multimedia Navi Pro with 8.0-inch colour touch screen. It is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Compatible smartphones are chargeable through wireless inductive charging.

The new Crossland SUV is equipped with individually sliding and reclining rear seats. The seats come with a 60/40 split and slide by up to 150mm, increasing boot space from 410 to 520 litres. Folding the rear seats completely increases the volume to a cavernous 1,255 litres.

Existing Crossland X drivers will appreciate the improvements Opel has made to the Crossland's chassis. The Opel engineers in Rüsselsheim have developed new springs and dampers for the McPherson strut front suspension and the torsion-beam rear axle. In combination with the new steering column intermediate shaft, which improves steering precision and centre-feel, the chassis of the new Crossland delivers an optimum balance of comfort and agility.
