Grandland lands in Frankfurt

VAUXHALL has given world premieres to no fewer than four new models at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show including the company's all-new, top-of-the-range SUV, the Grandland X.

Vauxhall first previewed the Grandland earlier this year but this is the first time it has appeared in public. It will be the third member of Vauxhall's ‘X' family, which also includes the Mokka X and the Crossland X.

With a sporty design and off-road looks, the Grandland X has elevated seating for five people, generous luggage space, good all-round visibility and a raft of safety technologies. At 4.48 metres long, it is the largest SUV in Vauxhall's range, offering even more cabin space than the 20 centimetre-shorter Mokka X and Crossland X.

Also debuting at Frankfurt, alongside the previously announced, all-wheel drive Insignia Country Tourer, is the all-new Insignia GSi, which delivers high levels of performance through all-wheel drive, a new chassis and Brembo brakes, and is powered by a two-litre turbo petrol engine.

This performance variant of Vauxhall's latest flagship model has an eight-speed automatic gearbox, which can be operated via a paddle-shift on the steering wheel to provide a more active and responsive driving experience. Staying true to the latest-generation Insignia range, the GSi combines lightweight design and a low centre of gravity with turbocharged power. These factors result in excellent balance and a favourable power-to-weight ratio.

The last of Vauxhall's Frankfurt unveils are two new up-market variants of the British-built Vivaro van - the Tourer Elite and Tourer Weekender.

Aimed at the business shuttle market, the Tourer Elite model will be available with a 1.6-litre CDTi BiTurbo engine with 125PS or 145PS, in either L1 or L2 body.

Meanwhile the Tourer Weekender is aimed at the lifestyle market and features a third row bed. It will be available with a 1.6-litre CDTi BiTurbo engine with 125PS or 145PS, in L2 body only.
