The latest car in Opel’s current new model blitz, the Grandland X, has been unveiled.

Modern, dynamic lines, a cool off-road look, along with a host of top technologies plus plenty of space and comfort are said to characterise the new car.

The newcomer joins the growing mob in the booming SUV segment, thanks to its attractive price-performance ratio.

The Grandland X will make its premiere at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September and will be available to order from dealerships from Q4.

The 4.48 metre-long Grandland X’s athletic look boasts crisp exterior dimensions while the long wheelbase of 2,675mm, offers generous space for up to five people.

And with a load volume of 514 to 1,652 litres for luggage and sports equipment, the new Opel SUV is even on a par with extremely spacious compact class estate models.

The Grandland X has as standard the whole panoply of ultra-modern assistance, infotainment and comfort features including lane departure warning, road sign recognition, hill start assist, and Radio 4.0 with Bluetooth hands-free phone capability.

There’s also a raft of stuff such as forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, driver drowsiness alert, advanced park assist and the 360-degree camera are available as options.

Comfort is ensured by AGR (Campaign for Healthier Backs) certified ergonomic seats as well as a heated steering wheel, seat heating front and rear and the tailgate which opens and closes with a simple kicking movement.

In usual Opel fashion, Grandland X drivers and passengers enjoy top class connectivity with the latest generation of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatible IntelliLink systems as well as the personal connectivity and service assistant Opel OnStar including Wi-Fi Hotspot and new services such as booking hotel rooms and searching for parking.

Smartphones can even be charged wirelessly via inductive charging. For music fans who want to enjoy an outstanding audio experience, a Denon premium sound system with eight speakers and one subwoofer is an optional extra.
