Opel has just revealed its new Crossland X, a SUV that will essentially replace the Meriva MPV.
The new SUV will be a little smaller than the Mokka X and sit below it in the car makers line-up. The German manufacturer feels confident that there is room for the Crossland X , which will be pitted against vehicles like the Renault Captur, while the Mokka X is aimed at customers who would also consider the Nissan Juke.
The Crossland X will also have a bit more of a family appeal, with rear seats that can slide 150mm back or forwards, to reconfigure cabin or boot space, while the Mokka X will be marketed for ‘the more adventurous’. The smaller SUV will only be available with front-wheel drive and will sit 70mm lower than the Mokka X. The new Crossland X will shares its underpinnings with the upcoming Peugeot 2008 and the C3 Picasso. There are no details on the powertrain yet.
At this point General Motors SA are seriously considering bringing the Crossover X to South Africa.
