We were very lucky to have recently reviewed the Vauxhall Crossland X. We had the car for a week and took it up to Manchester on our summer trip to visit family. How did we find it?
Mummy has always loved Vauxhalls, we had a Vauxhall Zafira until recently. They are such lovely cars to drive, and the Crossland X was no exception.
It is a super funky, stylish looking car with a whole ton of fab features to keep the whole family happy – yes even the teens!
As a family of four, we found the size of the Vauxhall Crossland X great – it was however a little squashed in the back seat for us as a family of five. I do still have my big car seat though, and Lea and Luke are tall teens!
How cool the car looked. How smooth it was when Mummy was driving. The sound of the stereo.
The Teens loved :
The comfy, adjustable half leather seats.
The smart phone connectivity and the On Star wifi on board the car. How awesome is that? The car itself is a wifi hotspot! They could add their apps to the Intellilink screen with Apple CarPlay™ and there was a wireless charging spot too!
The panoramic rear view parking camera – one of the clearest she has seen. It is 180° and gives a clear view of the area behind the car without needing to strain your neck.
The fact that when the Petrol Warning light came on the display showed the nearest petrol stations to us! That is so cool!
The LED headlights. I have no idea why, but Mummy has a slightly strange obsession with car headlights and she LOVED the fancy LED ones on the Vauxhall Crossland X. They are so powerful and are 30% brighter than halogen.
We had a manual, 6 speed, petrol 1.2 (130PS) Turbo with Start/Stop engine which Mummy was concerned may be a bit gutless but it was awesome! So quick and responsive and it flew up to Manchester with no problems at all. It was great on fuel too, averaging over 40mpg.
Other features are:
17″ Alloy Wheels
Only 4.21 metres in length
Advanced park assist
Forward collision alert with pedestrian detection and autonomous emergency braking

We LOVED the Vauxhall Crossland X and highly recommend it as a mid size family car with all the looks and gadgets you could ever need! Full details of the options available for this car can be found on the Vauxhall website.
