It was a pleasure for the CarLease UK team to personally hand over Vauxhall’s newest (and impressive) SUV option – the Grandland X.
Earlier this year, the PSA takeover of Vauxhall was announced, as Peugeot/Citroen moved more heavily into the UK market.
With economic pressures and changes (Brexit, WLTP, VED) manufacturers are facing increasing uncertainty about the future of their products and the viability of progression.
Add to the mix a cost-demanding market (in the UK we are driven by the cheapest price for the best car) and an enthusiastic approach to environmentally friendly vehicles, and you can see why there is such trepidation.
In order to survive all manufacturers are either forming strategic alliances, merging or acquiring one another. Moving into the future we will probably see less product/less choice and higher prices (particularly if these are electric/hybrid vehicles).
In terms of the car shown here, the Vauxhall GRANDLAND X HATCHBACK 1.2T Sport Nav 5dr [Auto] [Petrol], this is based on the following configuration:
· Diamond Black Metallic Paint
· Harlekin cloth – Black
· 18″ 5 spoke diamond cut alloy wheels in Technical grey
· Heated windscreen
· Silver roof rails
· Space saver spare wheel
As standard the car includes park and go pack, 3-spoke leather steering wheel, high beam assist, 8-way adjustable front seats, 18” alloy wheels, bling spot monitoring, dark tinted rear windows, heated rear windows, sound insulating glass, hill start assist, carpeted loadpsace, cruise control, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, speed limit recognition, navigation with an 8” colour touchscreen, auto dimming interior mirror, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, body coloured externals, automatic lighting control, fog lights, climate control, ambient interior lighting active pedestrian safety system, tyre pressure monitoring system, keyless entry and start and remote security alarm system.
