Launched in 2017, the Opel Grandland X goes through the restyling box. New look, more high-tech interior, new driving aids… the changes are numerous. The SUV even goes so far as to change its name!
Opel continues to rejuvenate its range . After launching a new Corsa in 2019 and restyling the Crossland in 2020, and while waiting for the sixth generation of Astra scheduled for this summer, the German manufacturer is renewing… the Grandland X ! Marketed since 2017, the compact SUV benefits in spring 2021 from a mid-career restyling .
And for the occasion, Opel has decided to change everything . Or almost. Starting with the name of the model . Like the new Mokka , the latter loses its “X” suffix and simply becomes the Grandland.
The face of the new Mokka
The connection with the new Mokka continues even in style. Like the urban SUV, the restyled Grandland sports the brand’s new face, the Opel Vizor . At the front, we find ultra- thin IntelliLux LED Pixel Light projectors , borrowed from the Insignia, while at the rear the name of the model is now located in the center of the tailgate, just below the brand’s logo.
A fully digital dashboard
On board, same story since Opel has grafted its new “Pure Panel” dashboard . The restyled Grandland thus inherits a large digital panel consisting of two screens, one for the instrument cluster (12 inches) and the other for the infotainment system (up to 10 inches). Ergonomic seats, which can be leather, massage and ventilated, are also part of the game.
This restyling is also an opportunity for the SUV to get up to date technologically speaking. It thus gains new driving aids, such as Night Vision , a system which detects pedestrians and animals in the dark at a distance of up to 100 meters, and which then warns the driver.
Also new is the support for highway driving (Highway Integration Assist). Semi-adaptive, the latter keeps the Grandland in the middle of its traffic lane and is responsible for keeping the distance with the vehicle in front.
The “techno” range is completed by a 360-degree panoramic camera, an automatic parking assistant or even a blind spot warning system.
A trendy SUV
Finally, under the hood, Opel announces “fuel-efficient diesel and gasoline engines” as well as plug-in hybrid versions , without detailing its offer in this area. The Grandland should however share the same blocks as the Peugeot 3008, namely a 3-cylinder 1.2 l petrol of 130 hp, a 1.5 l Diesel also developing 130 hp and two PHEV engines of 225 and 300 hp. These models will be offered in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
The restyled Grandland will be produced at the Opel plant in Eisenach, Germany. The brand will announce its prices and open its order book in a few weeks. The first deliveries will take place in the fall.
