Vauxhall Crossland Review 2023

The Vauxhall Crossland is another addition to the extremely competitive crossover SUV market. The Crossland comes with a practical interior and lots of kit as standard, making it a good choice for a family car.

Rivals to the Vauxhall Crossland include the Peugeot 2008, Skoda Kamiq, Seat Arona, and Volkswagen T-Roc.

Our Vauxhall Crossland review covers:

Vauxhall Crossland Key Features

  • Sharp headlights and front grille
  • Practical interior with a few nice touches
  • 410 litre boot
  • A 1.2 litre petrol engine available
  • Three trim levels: Design, DS, and Ultimate

Vauxhall Crossland Pros and Cons:

Pros:

  • Good kit as standard
  • Decent practicality 
  • Good sized boot

Cons:

  • Rivals better to drive
  • Interior lacks a touch of class
  • Small touchscreen 

Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The Vauxhall Crossland looks like your typical crossover SUV. It has sharp headlights and a modern-looking front grille, and the bodywork flows elegantly from front to back. A standout feature of the Crossland is its wheels; from GS trim and up, you get diamond-cut wheels which are fantastic.

Moving inside, there's a good amount of leg and headroom in the front for anyone over six feet tall. However, those in the back might say differently. There's not much legroom if the front passengers have their seats slid back, which makes the Crossland fall short of the Ford Puma and Skoda Kamiq.

In terms of storage, you get plenty of trays and a couple of cupholders under the dashboard. There are door bins; however, they're a bit shallow and won't fit large water bottles.

Boot space comes in at 410 litres, which is competitive in its class. It's nice and square, which makes it easy to load and unload luggage, and there's hardly any lip from the tailgate to the boot floor.

Interior and Trims

Given the Crossland's price, the interior isn't as good as those in the premium brands, but even so, it looks smart and there's a range of soft-touch materials. Although it looks good, its built quality falls short of the Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Roc.

A seven-inch infotainment system with a DAB radio, six speakers, Bluetooth, and smartphone connectivity tech is standard. The software is responsive and well-organised, which makes it straightforward to use when driving. If you want a bigger touchscreen, opt for the GS trim and above, and you'll get an eight-inch screen.

Three trim levels are available: Design, GS, and Ultimate.  

Design comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, a seven-inch infotainment system, rain-sensitive windscreen wipers, air conditioning, and speed sign recognition.  

GS adds to this with 17-inch wheels, an eight-inch infotainment system, a panoramic rear-view camera, an eight-way ergonomic active driver's AGR seat, and dual-zone climate control.

Ultimate completes the line-up with 17-inch diamond cut bi-colour alloy wheels, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, a FlexFloor load compartment, and keyless entry and start.

Power and Performance

One engine is available in the Crossland; it's a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine with three cylinders. Two power outputs are available, 110PS and 130PS, with the former a manual and the latter an automatic.

The less-powerful 110PS unit has a 116mph top speed, achieved 0-62mph in 10.5 seconds, and returns 48.7mpg. The 130PS unit ups top speed to 125mph, achieves 0-62mph in 9.9 seconds and returns a fuel economy of 44.8mpg.

Vauxhall Crossland interior

After the Crossland's facelift in 2020, it received a new suspension and steering system in a bid to make it drive better and feel more comfortable on the motorway.

Even with the new steering system, the Crossland isn't the most enjoyable crossover to drive in terms of handling. Grip and body lean are apparent, so if you want a more engaging drive, look towards the excellent Ford Puma.

For ride quality, the Crossland absorbs bumps in the road well, but you can feel large potholes and sharp abrasions in the cabin. If you want the best ride quality, stick with the standard 16-inch wheels on the Design trim.

Prices for the new Vauxhall Crossland start from £26,215.00 OTR* or to lease from £204.36 per month.
