Opel will be unveiling a brand new crossover tomorrow and to whet our appetite, yes, a teaser image has been released on social media showing a bit of the maw of the new Crossland X.
The newbie, which will be bigger than the Mokka X, more practical too and even look a bit like it (well, from what we can see of the front end anyway, and there’s a bit of the 2017 Insignia Grand Sport in there too…) will serve as the successor to the Meriva MPV.
It will make its global debut at the Geneva motor show next month where Opel just might have an even bigger model on display, the Grandland X. That one should replace the Zafira but back to the Crossland X, Opel says that it will be the sort of car for people “who want to live the country life in town, who grow tomatoes and herbs on the roof garden, and need plenty of space for their children and the shopping from the bio supermarket.”
Hmm, it won’t be very exciting if we go by that but it’ll probably go down very well as buyers just can’t seem to get enough of practical CUVs and SUVs. The newbie will use platforms shared with Peugeot and Citroen and we expect this to be the first of a bunch of new models from Opel as it plans to reveal seven new models this year.
