In the past, Opel has put forth press releases under the pretense that they were written by Grumpy Cat, so it is not that unreasonable to assume that whoever wrote the press release announcing the arrival of the Opel Grandland X did so portraying P.J. Soles’ character Lynda from the film Halloween. Totally plausible, totally.
The newly-revealed Grandland X is the latest product in Opel’s 7 in 17 strategy, joining the x-citing, x-ceptional Crossland X and the new Insignia family. It is set to make its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this coming September and come to market shortly thereafter. That’s not totally a long way off.
“A stylish newcomer is ready to attack in the booming compact SUV segment—and that is our new Opel Grandland X. Its name stands for adventure, independence, and abundance,” said Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann. “With its sporty design, the Grandland X looks fantastic and will ensure that new customers get excited about the Opel brand. Beyond the characteristic SUV qualities, it also has a host of top technologies that make it safe and fun at the same time. With the Grandland X, Opel is bringing onto the market a cool SUV with a strong ‘I want it’ factor.”
The dimensions of the Grandland X are 4,477 millimeters long, 1,844 millimeters wide, and 1,636 millimeters high; it boasts a wheelbase of 2,675 millimeters and max cargo volume of 1,652 liters. It will be offered with safety-minded features like Adaptive Cruise Control with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking, Driver Drowsiness Alert, and Advanced Park Assist. Also, optional electronic Grip Control for better traction. Also, other stuff.
Will we find out other stuff about it closer to its debut in September?
In a word: totally.
