Opel’s Grandland SUV Gets Facelift
Opel has redesigned the Grandland. The large SUV from Rüsselsheim (Germany) loses the x in its name and gets a fresh brand face, a fully digital cockpit, and plug-in hybrid drives.
After four years in production, the Opel Grandland is getting a comprehensive facelift. Like the smaller Mokka, the SUV from Rüsselsheim now carries the Opel Vizor at the front. The new brand face integrates the IntelliLux LED pixel headlights known from the Insignia with 84 LEDs per headlight for the first time on request.
In addition, the camera-based “Night Vision” system can be ordered. An infrared camera located at the front detects people and animals up to 100 m ahead of the Grandland in the direction of travel based on their temperature difference from the surroundings.
PHEV versions for the Opel Grandland
Also new is the front collision warning system, which in conjunction with automatic transmission offers pedestrian, traffic sign and drowsiness detection in addition to automatic hazard braking. The system uses camera and radar sensors and also enables adaptive cruise control and active lane departure warning. In addition, a 360° camera or blind spot warning system are available.
The SUV, based on PSA’s (now Stellantis) EMP2 platform, is also now said to offer several PHEV versions. Previously available as a plug-in hybrid, the Grandland X Hybrid 4, which combines a 147-kW (200 PS) 1.6-l turbo gasoline engine with two electric motors that produce 81 kW (110 PS) of power in the front and 83 kW (113 PS) in the rear of the vehicle. In addition, gasoline and diesel engines are available for the SUV.
New Pure Panel in the interior
In the interior, the Opel Grandland now boasts the Opel Pure Panel with two screens. Depending on the equipment, the driver’s info display is up to 12" in size, while the central touchscreen of the infotainment system measures up to 10" in size in the top version Multimedia Navi Pro. In addition, the SUV can be equipped with ergonomic active seats, which, depending on the equipment, offer heated and ventilated seats or electropneumatic lumbar support.
