You may well have seen the heavy advertising of the new Grandland X by Vauxhall motors recently, with the motto "Keeps Calm. Carries On." It's Vauxhalls way of emphasising the fact that the Grandland X can handle the rough with the smooth, being ready for action, anywhere. This bold looking sports utility vehicle packs powerful yet economical engines, is supremely comfortable and bristling full of the latest technology.
We at W P Lewis & Son wanted to put the Grandland X through its paces and have taken it out and about in South Pembrokeshire to see how it fared.
The verdict: It's spacious, smart and full of features that will assist you whether you're doing the school run or adventuring on your weekend break.
It's vast array of safety features make this vehicle great for anyone with families. From traffic sign recognition and lane departure warning to automatic braking, we love how safe this car is.
It's muscular appearance makes it look athletic and nimble. At the time of writing - there are 5 models available, starting with the Techline NAV and SE, moving through to Sport NAV, Elite NAV and the range topping Ultimate model. All come with an excellent amount of comfort and technology features.
The Sport NAV is a model which is a bit of a head turner. Its sporty diamond-cut wheels gives it the sporty look, with NAV it is super modern in both its design and features which are available at the driver's fingertips.
The engines are powerful yet economical, starting with the 130 PS 1.2 Turbo petrol. Yes, it's not a typo. We did say 1.2! An amazing engine and certainly worth trying out for yourself. There are also a number of diesel engine variants including a 1.5 litre 130PS and 2.0 litre 177 PS available.
As you would expect, the car is brimming with interior features. From being able to control the interior 'mood lighting' to the excellent touch screen intellilink system which includes navigation (on nav models of course), boasting wireless connectivity to accept phone calls and play music from your smartphone as well as the added benefit of DAB.
The excellent news is that Vauxhall have been offering 0% APR Finance on much of the new car range, including Grandland X. It doesn't get any better than that!
