 MRP from £16,835 - £23,810

Did you know? Confusingly, Vauxhall also sells the Mokka X, which is another small SUV of a similar size, but which offers more powerful engines and four-wheel drive options.

Verdict 6.0 / 10

 

The Vauxhall Crossland X is inoffensive yet unexceptional. Its main crimes are in its poor perceived interior build quality, its comparably high monthly PCP costs, and we’d also like to see a more supple ride comfort. Its engines are adequate and it’s very well equipped as standard, so if you get a great deal then it’ll do the job just fine but there are better alternatives out there, including the more entertaining and cheaper Seat Arona that's our overall favourite in this class, the more practical and comfortable Renault Captur, and the funkier-looking Citroen C3 Aircross.
