A rival to models such as the Renault Captur and Nissan Juke, the updated Crossland SUV will arrive early next year, featuring the new Vizor styling already introduced on the new Mokka. As with the Mokka, it also drops the ‘X’ suffix on its name.

As well as the new front-end, the Crossland has been made over with new tail-lights, front and rear skid plates, chrome door mouldings and a new range of 16- and 17-inch wheels.

The line-up will also include a new GS Line+ trim, including black 17-inch light-alloy wheels, black roof, red signature daylight opening, AGR-certified ergonomic seats, LED tail-lights and roof rails.

Rear seats fold 60/40 split and slide by up to 150mm, increasing boot space from 410 litres to 520 litres. Overall capacity with the rear seats folded stands at 1,255 litres.

Engine line-up features Opel’s latest RDE2-compliant Euro 6d petrol and diesel engines, and includes an 83hp 1.2-litre petrol, a 1.2-litre turbo petrol with 110 or 130hp and a 1.5-litre turbo diesel with 110hp or 120hp.

The facelifted Crossland also receives chassis updates said to deliver enhanced driving dynamics and comfort, alongside improved steering feel and handling.

IntelliGrip adaptive traction control system will also be available from early 2021 (again market-dependent) offering increased traction and stability to suit varying conditions via five modes.

Technology features include an eight-inch touchscreen providing Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

The new Crossland also features advanced driver assistance features including forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian recognition, driver drowsiness alert and a panoramic rear-view camera with a 180-degree view.

Deliveries start early 2021.
