New Opel Crossland: Much More Than Just a Pretty Face
Rüsselsheim. Crisp and compact on the outside, very spacious and versatile on the inside with cool SUV looks. That is the new Opel Crossland, which is the first model to adopt the brand’s unmistakeable new face, showcased just a few weeks ago by the new Opel Mokka. As with the Mokka, the new Opel Crossland dispenses with the X-appendix in its name. In addition to the design, Opel has further developed the Crossland’s chassis and steering, and added a sporty GS Line trim as well as IntelliGrip adaptive traction control.
Organically integrating the grille and headlights, the Opel Vizor of the new Crossland extends in one single sweep across the front of the vehicle. The Vizor optically stretches the width and organises the fascia with a reduced amount of elements. The brand’s legendary lightning-flash emblem proudly dominates the centre. The Vizor will become a hallmark of all Opel models in the course of the 2020s with the idea of further clustering top technologies.
At the rear, new dark-tinted taillights enhance the signature Opel wing light design, and the new high-gloss black tailgate surface (available in combination with the black roof) makes the new Crossland look wider and stronger.
Also new are the front and rear skid plates (painted silver on the Ultimate model variant), LED front fog lamps (with chrome décor on Ultimate and Elegance), a chrome door moulding for the Ultimate trim, plus stylish 16 and 17-inch light-alloy wheels. The former are available in silver, high-gloss black bi-colour or high-gloss black, while the latter come in high-gloss black bi-colour or high-gloss black.
Fans of sporty looks will get their money's worth with the Crossland GS Line. This new trim, including black 17-inch light-alloy wheels, black roof, red signature daylight opening, AGR-certified ergonomic seats (Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V.) for driver and front passenger, LED taillights and roof rails make the compact SUV really stand out from the competition.
The generous feeling of space and the first-class AGR ergonomic front seats in the Crossland will make long trips even more comfortable. The SUV also convinces with a high level of flexibility, thanks to individually sliding and reclining rear seats. They come with a 60/40 split and slide by up to 150 millimetres, increasing trunk space from 410 to a class-leading 520 litres in seconds. Folding the rear seats completely increases trunk volume to 1,255 litres.
Enthusiastic drivers will especially enjoy the improvements Opel has made to the Crossland’s chassis. The engineers in Rüsselsheim have developed new damper tuning for the McPherson strut front suspension and the torsion-beam rear axle. In combination with improved steering precision and centre-feel, the chassis of the new Crossland delivers an optimum balance of comfort and agility, as well as high stability at motorway speeds.
New with IntelliGrip: Optimum traction at all times
New Crossland buyers can add extra safety to the enhanced driving dynamics with IntelliGrip (available from early 2021). This adaptive traction control system enables optimum traction and stability on all kinds of surface. IntelliGrip features the following five modes:
Drivers and passengers can enjoy not only strong grip, they are also well connected and entertained thanks to the range of infotainment systems comprising Radio BT, Multimedia Radio and the top-of-the-line Multimedia Navi Pro with 8.0-inch colour touch screen. The Multimedia units are also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Compatible smartphones are chargeable while in use via wireless inductive charging. In addition, the Crossland offers the “OpelConnect”1 service as an option. LIVE Navigation2 with real-time traffic information and current fuel prices, plus a direct link to breakdown assistance and emergency calls makes journeys even more relaxing.
Euro 6d petrol and diesel engines: Driving fun with low emissions
Opel Crossland customers can choose from a powertrain portfolio of efficient petrol and diesel engines with 1.2 and 1.5-litre displacement. Both the petrol engines with 61kW (83hp) to 96kW (130hp) and the diesel engines with 81kW (110hp) and 88kW (120hp) now meet the strict Euro 6d emissions standard.
Trendsetting lighting technology and innovative assistance systems
Journeys will be even more relaxing and safer with the numerous ultra-modern technologies and assistance systems available with the Opel Crossland. Adaptive full-LED headlamps with cornering light, high beam assist and auto levelling ensure outstanding visibility in the dark.
