After the teaser that we saw yesterday in the first hour, the Opel Crossland X has been revealed completely. It may not sound like the logo you see in the pictures, it’s of Vauxhall, the sister company that sells Opel in other countries such as the Uk. The Opel Crossland X comes to replace the Opel Meriva, that after the “pitch” of the models SUV and crossover lost its niche in the market; a gap that is sure to be recovered with this new model.
oddly enough, Opel will have two models of similar sizes and aesthetic crossover for sale, something that seems somewhat contradictory. The German mark ray explains that, despite being similar in size, the Opel Mokka X has a greater capacity offroad by his height and angles of the body as well as the possibility of having all-wheel drive. Meanwhile, the new Crossland X will only be available with traction on the front axle and shall be 7 cm lower, so that his approach is fully asphalt.
Aesthetically, according to our way of seeing, recalls a minivan small with an aesthetic that mimics a crossover. The front reminds a lot of the crossover Mokka X as the forms of the headlights LED, the main trait of identity, are virtually identical to those of his brother. The side view makes a nod to the urban Opel Adam for the chrome that runs along the contour of the windows and dying in the rear pillar above the drivers lights. Behind is robust for its protections in the lower part, with a spoiler that adds dynamism just above the bezel.
The Opel Crossland X has a exterior length of 4,21 meters, an intermediate size between an Opel Astra and an Opel Corsa. The brand of General Motors has sought to make the most of every centimetre to achieve an inner compelling, that is to say, that is as broad as possible. In terms of design, it is easy to recognize that we are faced with an Opel because all the elements and controls are also used by other models of the brand. Of course, no shortage of ergonomic seats AGR how popular are you doing in the German brand.
A noteworthy aspect will be their cargo space, with no less than 410 litres of luggage compartment volume, which will 520 liters if move longitudinally with the second row seat (has regulation in distance). Folding the seats and, therefore, keeping only the driver’s seat and the airbag, the volume grows to the 1.255 litres. These data are typical of a higher segment, so that a 10 in this regard for Opel Crossland X.
For those who love to have technology all the time, this city is not far behind compared to the rest of models of the brand with all the connectivity systems and infotainment with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, what services OnStar, wireless charger induction, WiFi for various devices and a long etcetera.
But the technology is not only arrives in the form of entertainment and connectivity. The Opel Crossland X brings a large amount of security systems and aid driving with the goal of reducing the number of traffic accidents. This is the set Opel Eye that incorporates braking automatic emergency recognition of pedestrians, notice of involuntary departure of lane, detector fatigue and recognition of road signs. To this we must add the angle sensors dead, and also a reversing camera with angle of 180 degrees and cross-traffic alert.
Opel still has not ruled on its range of engines, nor about the prices in the move to this city. We will have to wait.
