Vauxhall Grandland X 2019 Exterior and Interior
The chrome winglets feature the brand’s logo and point to the dual wing LED headlights, visually expanding the front and giving the 2019 Vauxhall Grandland X powerful and solid position. The hood features the characteristic Vauxhall fold – an expression of Vauxhall’s design philosophy of sculptural art and technical precision. The side profile echoes the appealing combination of rugged SUV charm and elegant lines. Sculpted, muscular wheel arches and low-profile protectors on the lower body give the Grandland X a real off-road appeal. On the other hand, the clear lines and the refined blade on the lower doors identify the new Grandland X as a member of the Vauxhall family. The optional two-tone finish, with the contrasting black roof, adds an extra touch of personalization. The fluid flow in the rest of the body is underlined by the pierced “C”, which creates a dynamic link to the back. The rear view of the Grandland X shows what a true SUV means, with wide protection, a silver lower guard with left and right integrated tailpipes, a protective liner and thin LED taillights emphasizing the sporty and muscular newcomer.
The Vauxhall Grandland X has the same quality inside: the dashboard and center console with touch screen are clearly arranged and aligned horizontally with the driver. The center column has three rows of horizontal controls for quick and intuitive access to infotainment, climate control and chassis. The Vauxhall Grandland X offers a selection of state-of-the-art comfort and assistance features. Adaptive cruise control with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, driver drowsiness alert and advanced parking assistance are just a few highlights.
