Announced as Opel in Europe said it would launch a plug-in hybrid Grandland X by 2020 – marking the first PHEV in its line-up – the new 128bhp unit is taken from models such as the Peugeot 3008 and 5008.

Available to order now, with first deliveries in July, it replaces the previous 118bhp 1.6-litre diesel and, in addition to the extra 10bhp, offers enhanced economy with an official combined fuel figure of 68.9mpg and 108g/km of CO2 in six-speed manual gearbox and SE trim. This compares to 65.7mpg and 112g/km for the old engine.

The new unit, which also meets the future Euro 6d-TEMP standard, is also available with a new eight-speed automatic transmission.

The new engine will be available from £24,190 on-the-road for the SE manual model.
