All-new Opel Crossland arrives in Ireland early 2021

Opel has revealed the first photos of its all-new Crossland, ahead of its arrival on Irish forecourts in early 2021.

The German manufacturer tells us that pricing, powertrains and equipment will be announced closer to this date.

The new Crossland features the all-new Opel ‘Vizor’ front face, first revealed on the all-new Mokka , which extends in one single sweep across the front of the vehicle, integrating both the grille and headlights.

A hallmark signature of all new Opel models to come, the front Vizor face is married to an equally strong rear visual identity featuring a new, high gloss black tailgate panel housing the Opel logo and book-ended with stylish rear lights.

A replacement to the popular predecessor Crossland X, the new Opel Crossland dispenses with the X-appendix in its name. It gains an improved chassis, extra comfort and technology features and a new sporty SRi Line trim.

New exterior style features, trim dependent, include front and rear skid plates, LED front fog lamps, chrome door mouldings, plus an all-new range of 16 and 17-inch light-alloy wheels. A new SRi Line version will boast black 16-inch light-alloy wheels, a black roof and red signature daylight opening, whilst an SRi Line + adds black 17-inch light-alloy wheels, AGR-certified ergonomic seats for driver and front passenger, adaptive full LED headlamps and LED taillights and roof rails.

The new model features adaptive full-LED headlamps with cornering light, high beam assist and auto levelling ensure outstanding visibility in the dark. The HUD projects the most important data on speed, navigation and assistance systems into the driver’s direct line of sight.

Features to further increase peace of mind include Forward collision alert with Automatic Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Detection, Driver Drowsiness Alert, Side Blind Spot Alert, Panoramic Rear View Camera and Automatic Park Assist.

The new Crossland features IntelliGrip, an adaptive traction control system which enables optimum traction and stability on all kinds of surface, thanks to its five mode settings of Normal, Snow, Mud, Sand and ESP.

Infotainment includes radio, multimedia and the top-of-the-line Multimedia Navi Pro with 8.0-inch colour touch screen. The multimedia units are also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Compatible smartphones are chargeable while in use via wireless inductive charging.

The new Crossland SUV has individually sliding and reclining rear seats. They come with a 60/40 split and slide by up to 150mm, increasing boot space from 410 to 520 litres in seconds. Folding the rear seats completely increases the volume to 1,255 litres.

James Brooks, managing director at Leeson Motors, Irish Importer of Opel, said: “The unveiling of the all-new Crossland heralds the start of a complete rejuvenation of the Opel model line-up. We look forward to 2021 with confidence in anticipation of all new Crossland, the all-new Mokka, an electrified Zafira-e Life and our first all-electric light commercial vehicle, the new Vivaro-e, with many more new models to follow within 12 months.”
