It is available here In a range of four models, with a mix of two engines, manual or automatic transmissions and three trim levels, Opel hopes every young family will have something to offer.
Opel describes the exterior design of the Crossland X urban crossover as sophisticated and robust, as well as bold, lively and cool. At the front, the Crossland X features a prominent grille with a brilliant Opel Blitz logo that is embraced by two winglets towards the Opel “double wing” LED daytime running lights. The horizontal lines of the Opel logo in the middle to the chrome winglets and the chrome bars leading to the Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) LED headlights create the illusion of extra width. Plastic coating at the lower end of the vehicle with silver inserts in the front and bottom of the vehicle recall the confident appearance of the vehicle while displaying a functional and sporty elegance. The lateral profile has sharp lateral lines and a seemingly floating roof, which visually separates the lower section of the upper section, visually stretching the Crossland X. The floating roof also displays its relationship to the arcuate chrome window line on the Opel Adam , who falls backwards. As on the Adam, customers are able to order a different color for the Crossland X roof. Opel describes the Crossland X’s rear styling as delivering an SUV statement with its visible protection against slippage. As in the front, the high-slit taillights also display the “double wing” graphic and form the intersection between the trunk lid and the downward sloping roofline.

The dashboard and center console are clearly structured and aligned horizontally with the driver. Flappers and vents feature subtle chrome finishes, delivering a high-quality message, while the 8-inch color touch screen is integrated in the center and incorporates the modern IntelliLink infotainment system, including Apple compatibility CarPlay and Android Auto. the roof even provides an even more spacious feeling.
