Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The official line is that the Mokka is a traditional SUV, with butch looks and the option of four-wheel drive, whereas the Crossland X is intended to be a more family-friendly choice.
To that end, all versions are front-wheel drive, which means there isn’t a driveshaft to the rear that robs the interior of usable space. The Crossland X also has deeper side windows than the Mokka to help create an airier feel inside, and it has smaller wheels, which have the potential to improve space, ride comfort and fuel efficiency.

The Vauxhall Crossland X is practical and comfortable, but it’s let down by an underwhelming driving experience.

Pros
Spacious and comfortable
Eager 1.2-litre petrol engine
Plenty of standard safety kit

Cons
Is it a genuine SUV?
Steering too sensitive
Wind noise at speed

By:

Crossland X is not at all, an off-roader and is aimed, quite simply, at two markets: one is the young family and the other is the older couple whose children have left home and who might want to downsize to a sensible, smaller, yet still practical vehicle.

Pros
Sensible and practical family car
A range of customisation options
Large choice of engines

Cons
Tough competition, but will come out fighting

The Niro isn't our favorite car to drive, but it's perfect for drivers who care as much about fuel efficiency as they do about their budget.

Pros
Efficiently rated up to 52 mpg,
affordable,
practicality of a crossover.

Cons
Some trims lack basic amenities,
uninspiring performance,
plug-in hybrid has limited EV range.

Comfortable, roomy interior
Excellent value
SUV-ish looks

Cons
No AWD option

Automatic emergency braking should be standard
