2017 Vauxhall Crossland X: new crossover could replace the Meriva

Vauxhall teases 2017 Crossland X crossover

Vauxhall has announced it’s launching a new compact crossover called the Crossland X.

It follows the naming strategy of Vauxhall’s popular compact crossover, reintroduced as the Mokka X when the model was facelifted earlier this year.

Rumours suggest that the Crossland X could replace the slow-selling Meriva – following Peugeot’s move of re-launching the 3008 and 5008 as crossover SUVs.

“Our customers’ expectations are changing, so the timing is perfect for an additional model in the Vauxhall range, which caters for a new breed of buyer,’ said Vauxhall chairman and MD Rory Harvey.

“The Crossland X will sit next to the Mokka X in our range, but their identities will be well-defined, and we anticipate that each will have its own following. More will be revealed at the start of next year, but we’re excited about the way Vauxhall’s crossover and SUV family is shaping up – and there’s more to come!”

Vauxhall is also expected to introduce a larger crossover related to the Zafira MPV at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
