Summary

The Vauxhall Crossland X is a perfectly competent new SUV contender but may struggle for visibility in an increasingly congested sector.
 

Summary

The Vauxhall Crossland X is a thoroughly practical compact SUV and it is easy to see where it will fit into the brand’s line-up. It’s not the cheapest amongst rivals but it compares favourably when specifications are compared – there is no bargain-basement entry-level version of this car.

Anyone looking for lots of space, a long equipment list at a reasonable price and a competent performance should consider the Crossland X. The problem is, it’s very late to a now crowded compact SUV market, and it’s hard to see many non-Vauxhall buyers being attracted to this car when there are rivals, such as the Renault Captur or the Suzuki Vitara, that do the practical bit just as well but with a little more panache.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA is handsome, good to drive and packed with kit, but if you're after practicality you'd be better waiting for the estate version.

Skoda Scala test drive

The Skoda Scala is everything you'd expect. It’s good to look at, hugely practical and comfortable, yet the brand’s core principle of value remains.
