Facelifted compact crossover is available to order now, as restyle brings it into line with Mokka and ditches ‘X’ suffix

Vauxhall has detailed UK pricing and specs for its redesigned Crossland, available to order now and priced from £19,060.

The facelift Renault Captur rival starts with entry SE trim, which features automatic LED headlights, 16in wheels, a 7.0in touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and tech such as lane departure warning and speed limit recognition.

Stepping up to SE Nav Premium, from £20,210, brings kit such as front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, an ergonomic driver’s seat to boost comfort and the Multimedia Navi Pro infotainment and sat-nav system with an 8.0in touchscreen. 

SRI Nav models, from £21,360, gain sporty styling upgrades including 17in wheels and contrasting roof colours, but ditch the parking sensors and camera. Elite spec, from £22,610, retains the parking sensors and camera and adds leather seats (heated in the front) plus a heated wheel. But you’ll need to upgrade to Elite Nav, from £23,120, for sat-nav, alongside wireless phone charging and a 180deg rear-view camera. 

Top-spec Ultimate Nav models include all the aforementioned kit on Elite Nav but add Alcantara seat trim, keyless entry and start, and silver roof rails. This spec tops the range and is priced from £25,615. 

The Crossland can be specified with a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine in 82bhp, 108bhp or 128bhp guises and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel motor with 108bhp or 118bhp. The base petrol motor is five speed manual only, whereas all other engines (bar the auto-only higher-powered diesel) can be had with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

Stop/start functionality is already standard with all powertrains on the current car and consumption ratings can be expected to remain broadly similar: between 45.6mpg and 47.9mpg for the petrol cars, and 55.4mpg to 60.1mpg for the diesels.

The family-oriented Crossland – which follows the Mokka in dropping its ‘X’ suffix – has been restyled three years after it was introduced, joining its larger Mokka sibling in receiving the brand’s new ‘Vizor’ front end.

Design tweaks are centred here, where LED headlights and Vauxhall’s simplified new brand emblem are brought together with the grille on a single panel.

More subtle updates at the rear include dark-tinted brake lights and a contrasting black bootlid, which is claimed to give the Crossland a wider stance, visually. The model name is now spelled out across the rear of the car, in line with the Mokka, and the brand’s chunky new two-tone alloy wheels are available as an option.

The interior has been left largely unaltered, but Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is now a standard feature and redesigned front seats – approved by the Campaign for Healthier Backs – are said to offer improved comfort and support.

The Crossland’s split folding rear bench is retained and can be slid forward by 150mm to increase boot capacity from 410 to 520 litres or folded flat to provide a maximum of 1255 litres of boot space.

Vauxhall has also tweaked the chassis for “enhanced driving dynamics”, adding new springs and dampers at the front and rear, alongside tweaks to the steering shaft that promise improved handling and steering feel.
