The 2017 Vauxhall Crossland X is currently on sale now. The automaker is offering five engine options and with five various trim levels. The new vehicle is the smallest model in the lineup of its "X" crossover.
The 2017 Vauxhall Crossland X is reportedly the smallest model for its series. It is the brand's replacement for the old Meriva MPV. With regards to price and size, it lies under the existing Mokka X.

Due to its size and design, the automaker claims the 2017 Vauxhall Crossland X can be considered more of a CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle), than an SUV. The distinct designs pointing to a CUV are its high bonnet, roof rails, large headlamps and the muscular front bumper.
In addition, design boss Mark Adams detailed to Auto Express that the new CUV is especially different from the Mokka X because of its low shoulders, high roofline, and extensive glasshouse that form part of its traditional people carrier personality. Adams also mentioned that the larger glass area and lowered window line provide a more spacious look in the new CUV than that of the Mokka X.
The 2017 Vauxhall Crossland X has been designed to have a shape that will maximize interior space. The goal of the design is to achieve practicality and functionality of an MPV, without discounting the image of a robust SUV.
Orders are now accepted for the 2017 Vauxhall Crossland X. The entry-level SE trim carries a $21,455 (£16,555) price tag. It runs with a 1.2-liter, three-cylinder petrol engine that can deliver 80 bhp.
