Expressive and compact bodywork with attractive SUV styling and a very spacious and versatile interior. That's what the new Opel Crossland looks like - the first model whose front end is reminiscent of the unique new face of the brand, introduced a few weeks ago in the new Opel Mokka.
As with the Mokka, the X is dropping from the Opel Crossland name. In addition to the exterior changes, Opel also introduced Crossland chassis and steering modifications, and added a sporty GS Line+ trim to the offering. The equipment of the model will also be replenished with the IntelliGrip adaptive traction control system.
The Opel Vizor, which seamlessly integrates the grille and headlights, covers the entire front of the new Crossland. Creating a single whole, it visually expands the car and organizes the front bumper with a limited number of elements. The center of the Vizor displays the brand's iconic logo with a lightning bolt symbol. Vizor will become the brand name for all Opel models over the next decade, providing a front for the cutting-edge technology the company will offer in the near and far future.
At the rear, new darkened headlights highlight Opel's signature wing design, while a new high-gloss black tailgate (available in combination with a black roof) makes the new Crossland wider and bulkier.
Also new are front and rear skid plates (silver on Ultimate trim), LED front fog lights (with chrome trim on Ultimate and Elegance), chrome door moldings on Crossland Ultimate, and 16-inch and 17-inch wheels. light alloy. The larger wheels are available in two-tone black glossy or black glossy finishes, while the smaller ones are also available in silver.
For fans of a sporty look, there is a GS Line+ version at an attractive price. This new version includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a black roof and red side window surrounds, ergonomic AGR (Aktion Gesunder Rücken eV - German Healthy Back Association) front seats for driver and front passenger, LED taillights and roof rails. make the compact SUV really stand out from the crowd.
The spacious feel and premium ergonomic AGR front seats in the Crossland mean that long journeys can be made in even greater comfort. The SUV also convinces with a high level of functionality thanks to the individually adjustable and folding rear seats. The rear seat is split 60/40 and can be moved up to 150 mm, which allows you to increase the luggage compartment from 410 to 520 liters (the best in its class) in a matter of seconds. With the rear seats fully folded down, the boot volume increases to 1,255 litres.
Dynamic drivers will especially appreciate the improvements made to the Opel Crossland chassis. Engineers in Rüsselsheim developed new McPherson struts and dampers at the front and a torsion beam at the rear axle. Combined with a new intermediate steering shaft that improves steering precision and straight-line stability, the chassis of the new Crossland strikes the best balance between comfort and agility.
Now with IntelliGrip: optimal grip in all conditions
Buyers of the new Crossland can increase the safety of dynamic driving by ordering the IntelliGrip system (available from early 2021) for optimal grip and stability on all surfaces. IntelliGrip can operate in five different modes:
- Normal/Road: Normal mode, which is set by default when the engine is started. ESP and Traction Control are calibrated for standard city, highway or country driving conditions.
- Snow: Winter mode for optimum grip on icy and snowy surfaces at speeds up to 50 km/h. The traction control system regulates front wheel slip by braking the wheel that loses traction under acceleration and transferring torque to the other front wheel.
- Dirt: Mud mode allowing for more wheel slip when accelerating. Spinning a wheel that has less grip when pulling away rids the tread of dirt, making it easier to regain traction. At the same time, the wheel with the best grip gets more torque. This mode is active up to a speed of 80 km/h.
- Sand: This mode allows both front wheel drive wheels to be rotated lightly at the same time to keep the vehicle moving and prevent it from getting stuck.
- ESP off: ESP and traction control are disabled at speeds up to 50 km/h. For safety reasons, IntelliGrip automatically switches to "normal" mode when it is exceeded.
The driver and passengers are also well connected and entertained thanks to the multimedia systems in Radio, Multimedia and the highest Multimedia Navi Pro versions with an 8-inch color touch screen. The multimedia system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The induction charger allows you to wirelessly charge smartphones that support this function. In addition, Crossland offers access to additional OpelConnect services. Online navigation services with real-time traffic information and current fuel prices, as well as direct roadside assistance or an emergency call system, make driving even more enjoyable.
Euro 6d petrol and diesel engines
Opel Crossland buyers can choose from a range of powerful 1.2 and 1.5 liter petrol and diesel engines. Both petrol engines from 61 kW (83 hp) to 96 kW (130 hp) and diesel engines with 81 kW (110 hp) and 88 kW (120 hp) in currently comply with stringent Euro 6d emission standards.
State-of-the-art lighting technology and innovative driver assistance systems
Traveling in Opel Crossland can be made even more relaxing and safe with a host of the latest technologies and assistance systems. Adaptive full LED headlights with cornering light, high beam assist and automatic beam leveling ensure excellent visibility in the dark.
A brief overview of the most important driver assistance systems in the new Opel Crossland:
- Head-up display (headwear) presenting the most important information about speed, navigation and driving assistance systems right in the driver's field of vision.
- Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection operates at speeds above 5 km/h. If the vehicle approaches a vehicle or pedestrian in front too quickly, the system alerts the driver with an audible signal and displays a message on the information center screen. If a collision is unavoidable, the braking system prepares for emergency braking and applies it if necessary to soften the force of the impact. Below 30 km/h, the system can bring the vehicle to a complete stop. If the speed exceeds 30 km/h, the speed only decreases and the driver has to actively brake.
- Lane Departure Warning System gives audible and visual signals if it registers an unintentional departure from the lane.
- Sleepiness detection system evaluates driver fatigue depending on driving style and reminds the driver to stop during the trip.
- Blind Spot Warning Systemusing ultrasonic sensors. The system informs the driver about vehicles approaching in adjacent lanes using light signals in the side mirrors of the corresponding side.
- Panoramic rear view camera spanning a 180 degree angle.
- Automatic parking assistantwhich recognizes parallel and perpendicular parking spaces and automatically parks the car (the driver only needs to operate the pedals and the gear lever).
- Cruise control with speed limiterTogether with the speed limit sign recognition function, it makes it quick and easy to comply with the speed limit.
Orders for the new Crossland will be available soon, with the first copies coming to dealers in early 2021.
