Introducing the Opel Grandland
The New Grandland is Opel's flagship SUV, sitting at the top of the range in terms of size, space, and engine power.
Its distinctive and contemporary exterior design is backed up by a number of advanced driver technologies that make life on the road more enjoyable, safe, and relaxing.
Comfort has always been a priority of Opel SUVs, and the New Grandland is no different. Ergonomic active seats for both the driver and passenger plus a number of other features make this one of the most comfortable Opel models ever.
Available with a choice of petrol, diesel, and plug-in hybrid drivetrains, the New Grandland gives you flexibility in more ways than one.
Opel have chosen a pure and bold exterior look for the New Grandland. Like all new Opels since the Mokka was unveiled, the Opel Vizor grille is the standout feature on the front of the car and sets the brand apart from any other model out there.
Practicality credentials are strong, as you would expect from Opel's largest SUV. A big boot is accessed through an electronic sensor-controlled tailgate, which can be operated on the key fob, from inside the cabin or by waving your foot underneath the rear bumper.
The interior is light, airy, and spacious, with enough room in the back for three people to sit comfortably.
There are a number of advanced technology features on the New Grandland, many of which will transform your everyday driving experience. When you climb in and turn the car on, the first thing you'll notice is the fully digital instrument cluster, which Opel calls "Pure Panel". It's clear and configurable, as you would expect.
For night-time driving, Opel have included adaptive IntelliLux LED® Pixel Headlights, which do an amazing job of lighting the road ahead without dazzling oncoming traffic. Going one step further with regards to safety is the new night vision system. This has the ability to detect pedestrians or even animals on the road ahead, alerting the driver on the digital instrument cluster so you can take any necessary actions.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are fitted as standard, as is a 360-degree panoramic camera that makes parking a breeze.
Both petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid powertrain options are provided by the Grandland, giving you plenty of choice.
The 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol far punchier than you might expect, with 128bhp pushing you along nicely. It can be paired to either an 8-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The 1.5-litre diesel also produces 128bhp but adds an improved level of torque and fuel economy into the mix. This model is automatic-only.
Finally, there's the plug-in hybrid Grandland, which is a very strong performer. With a maximum output of 222bhp from the petrol engine and electric motor combined, it feels plenty fast enough, and can even travel up to 55km solely using electric power.
The New Grandland enhances what has been one of Opel's most popular model lines of recent years, incorporating next-generation tech and safety equipment into a practical and comfortable SUV.
