Production[edit]

The Crossland X is now built at the Opel factory in Zaragoza, Spain. It is based on a modified version of Groupe PSA's PF1 platform, which is currently used by the Citroën C3 Picasso and the Peugeot 2008.[4] The Crossland X's platform is shared with the new Citroën C3 Aircross.

Powertrains[edit]

The Crossland X is available with petrol, diesel and LPG engines. The petrol engines are all 1.2-litre 3-cylinder units with power outputs of 81, 110 and 130 hp (97 kW). The two higher-powered versions are turbocharged and have balance shafts. On the diesel side the Crossland X offers a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine with either 99 or 120 hp (89 kW). Both the 120 hp (89 kW) diesel and 130 hp (97 kW) petrol models get a 6-speed manual gearbox; the other engines come with 5-speed manuals. A 6-speed automatic is available in conjunction with the 110 hp (82 kW) engine.

The LPG model is based on the entry-level naturally aspirated petrol engine. When operating on LPG it has a maximum power output of 75 hp.

Sales[edit]

The car was officially shown in the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. It went on sale in the summer of 2017. At the same time, the Opel Meriva was discontinued, as demand for crossovers and SUVs in the B segment is continually growing at the expense of compact MPVs.[5]

In March 2018 Opel announced that over 100,000 orders for the Crossland X had already been taken.[6]
