The New Crossover Opel Crossland X Set To Replace Meriva
|   Sunday, January 29, 2017
Opel has officially unveiled the new sub-compact SUV, Crossland X, which will replace the current Meriva. It seems that the MPV's days will reach an end. As a matter of fact, they will evolve into SUVs, as the new Opel model indicates, which will be revealed on February 1 in Berlin, but the public premiere will be held at Geneva Motor Show

The X suffix, first used in Mokka's name, will be associated with all polyvalent models, namely the crossovers from Opel.

Opel Crossland X is the first product resulting from the collaboration with the French group PSA Peugeot-Citroen. The new crossover uses the same technical architecture on which the next generation of MVP, Citroen C3 Picasso will be developed.

Produced in Zaragoza, Spain, in the same factory with the future C3 Picasso, Crossland X will be offered exclusively with front wheel drive. With a length of 4.21 meters, a width of 1.76 meters and a height of 1.59 meters, Meriva's successor is 16 cm shorter and 10 cm taller than an Astra. Compared to the Mokka, X, the new Crossland X is 6 centimeters shorter, 1.7 centimeters narrower and sits 7 centimeters closer to the ground.

The trunk load volume ranges between 410 liters and 1,255 liters (the best result in the class) with the rear bench seat in the normal position or folded. If the rear seats slide forward, the maximum volume is 520 liters. Respecting the segment cannon, the three rear seats (split in 60/40 format) slide back and forth over a distance of 15 cm.

Although the model has dimensions close to the Mokka X, the new Crossland X will compete with B segment models, Peugeot 2008 and Renault Captur, being available only with front-wheel drive, just like the latter. We remind you that the Mokka X is available with four-wheel drive.

The design retains the language inaugurated by the Mokka's facelift in the past year. As mentioned, the ground clearance sits seven centimeters lower,than that of Mokka X, but the driving position will remain high thanks to lifting the driver's seat by 10 centimeters, compared to Opel Astra.

The stylistic kinship with older brother Mokka X is especially evident in the front side that displays a design similar to that used by the crossover positioned just above in Opel's range. The LED AFL adaptive headlights are included in the list of options too. The unique design of the rear lights and the C-pillar are reminiscent of the electric Ampera-e.

Inside, the Opel Crossland X can accommodate up to five passengers. The dashboard is almost identical to that of the Mokka X, the most basic functions being concentrated in the multimedia panel, IntelliLink with an 8-inch touchscreen (system compatible with universal standards, Apple Carplay and Android Auto).

In terms of passive safety, Opel Crossland X is endowed with systems like OnStar, Advanced Park Assist, Forward Collision Alert (detection of pedestrians or obstacles), Autonomous Emergency Braking (automatic braking), Lane Keep Assist (assistant band) with video cameras (180 degrees view toward the rear), radar sensors and ultrasound, respectively traffic signs recognition and blind spot monitoring.

The engine range has not yet been disclosed, but Opel promises a wide range of turbo units, with three or four cylinders.
