Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Genuinely capable 4x4 can seat seven and tow big loads.

PROS
Tough, rugged and reliable workhorse
Far better than previous model
Huge boot in five-seat mode
Seven-seat version available
CONS
Ride can be choppy
Not much engine/gearbox choice
Relatively unknown brand
Low fuel economy and high tax

The Rexton is a well-priced SUV that has a lot of boot space for the money and can carry seven people.
Reviews are fairly poor though since it’s not good to drive, noisy and has a dull image. It is one of the cheapest ways to move large loads and more people than usual however, so if you’re in that market then it’s worth a look.

Pros
Good off-road
Practical
Long warranty

Cons
Poor ride
Noisy
Outdated

The Rexton’s four-wheel drive system spends most of its life driving the rear wheels only, diverting power to the front when conditions get more slippery. In most of the cars sold in the UK it will be controlled through a Mercedes-sourced seven-speed automatic transmission - but a six-speed manual is likely to be offered on entry-level editions.
The dashboard has a clean look - again, with some cues from the Tivoli - but cross-stitched material panels and Nappa leather add a touch of luxury. The equipment on offer will include dual-zone climate control, a powered rear tailgate that opens automatically when the keyholder has been standing behind it for three seconds, and a new level of safety kit for SsangYong, including nine airbags and rear cross-traffic alert.

The Vauxhall Grandland X is decently practical, safe and good value for money. However, the mixed interior quality might put you off

Pros
Comfy over bumps
Spacious inside
All models well equipped

Cons
Sluggish infotainment
Top-spec cars are expensive
No four-wheel drive option

By:

Everyone’s crossing over these days…In cars, that is, as the ‘crossover SUV’ continues to barge ahead in popularity. One of the latest is the Vauxhall Grandland X. This model is the second to come out of Vauxhall’s takeover by Peugeot and based on their 3008.

Pros
Attractive interior
Roomy and comfortable
Overall good value

Cons
It's a crowded market

By: 
drive.co.uk

Pros
SUV completes line-up of three new X-branded family cars
Promise of ample personalisation options and cutting-edge tech
Well-equipped for the money, all offered with Vauxhall OnStar

CONS
Limited range of engines from launch
No four-wheel drive version for adventurous types
Most powerful engine is a pricey upgrade
