New Vauxhall Crossland X SUV due 2017
Vauxhall is to launch a second ‘X’ crossover model next year, believed to be the replacement for the Meriva MPV.
Few details have been released on the new model, named the Crossland X, but the carmaker said: “The newcomer is as multi-talented as it is stylish, and will appeal to buyers with families who demand agility and convenience in urban driving, but with enough comfort and performance to cover long distances at the drop of a hat.”
The new model has announced as the latest version of the Mokka, now dubbed the Mokka X, goes on sale. Vauxhall has also announced it will launch a new C-segment crossover, similar in size to the Astra and Zafira Tourer, and “with an especially sporty design” towards the end of 2017.
“Our customers’ expectations are changing, so the timing is perfect for an additional model in the Vauxhall range, which caters for a new breed of buyer,” said Rory Harvey, Vauxhall’s chairman and managing director. “The Crossland X will sit next to the Mokka X in our range, but their identities will be well-defined, and we anticipate that each will have its own following. More will be revealed at the start of next year, but we’re excited about the way Vauxhall’s crossover and SUV family is shaping up – and there’s more to come!”
