Bonjour lecteurs! As Christmas was around the corner, we were lucky to test the very modern Vauxhall Crossland X SUV. Perfect timing as we had a few days out planned with our family. So we had the chance to drive one of these beautés on both the motorway and country roads. We are actually looking at getting a new family car this year as Baba is starting school and we are hoping to travel more. If you are on the same page, regardez my Vauxhall Crossland X SUV Review.
Vauxhall Crossland X – Description
We got to test this beautiful Vauxhall Crossland X SUV in red for a few days before Christmas.
The car looks very modern and is automatic. You gotta love une voiture super chic like that!
Well equipped for a family car, it has some fab features such as:
- Bluetooth® audio streaming
- Bluetooth® mobile phone portal
- AM/FM/digital radio
- A fully integrated European sat-nav system with an 8-inch colour touchscreen
And not to forget a Cruise control with speed limiter!
From the moment we got the Crossland X, we were impressed with its looks.
From the outside, it’s a compact SUV with some stylish curves, and just screams practical – easy to park, but big enough for some family adventures.
On the inside, there’s a nice trim, comfy upholstery and solid feel to everything from the steering wheel and dash.
We particularly liked the navigation and infotainment system that sported a large screen. So easy to use!
And you also have some decent speakers, with DAB radio.
Grumpy Boyfriend took care of driving duties and said he could tell the difference going from a 1.6 petrol engine to a responsive automatic 1.5 turbo diesel.
The first thing he did was reverse and loved the rear-view camera and parking sensors, which are a nice touch.
Another good feature is that it only took a couple of minutes to switch over our baby seat into the rear seat.
I must say that despite its compact appearance, there’s a decent amount of space for passengers at the back, with a boot also providing some ample space.
Our Vauxhall Crossland X Experience
We covered around 200 miles on a few journeys, involving motorways, urban roads and country lanes, and never had any problems to report.
The ride and suspension were more comfortable than expected, and apparently there was responsive braking and handling around corners.
Grumpy Boyfriend didn’t take a precise log of our fuel consumption but he guessed we were getting about 50 – 60 mpg.
Although we can only base our experience in comparison with our current car and hire cars we’ve driven, Vauxhall is now a car brand we would consider looking at for a future buy.
We genuinely couldn’t find anything to fault, in terms of reliability or how the car performed in different conditions, and with low CO2 emissions, even the diesel is comparatively eco-friendly.
Vauxhall Crossland X SUV Review – Le Verdict
The Vauxhall Crossland X SUV is great for family buyers!
- I love its beautiful design (the colour we got was so pretty too!)
- it is smooth to drive
- it is quite spacious for all the family
- the interior is not fancy, but it does the job
- the navigating and audio systems are super easy to use
- you can put a lot in the boot, including scooters etc
C’est un succés! If you want to buy an SUV for all the family to enjoy, then the Vauxhall Crossland X is a good option!
What would be your dream car as a family?
Disclosure: We tried out a Vauxhall vehicle on a loan basis for a few days. With thanks to Grumpy Boyfriend for helping in the writing of this blog post too!

A great looking car which is the perfect size for a family. Love the rear view camera and sensors to assist with reversing and parking.
I only drive automatic cars, I passed in a manual but much prefer auto.
I love vauxhall cars, they are a good solid car, like you have said in your review.
What a brilliant test drive – looks really comfy and roomy
Vauxhalls are one of my favourite. Good family car for sure.
This looks like a great family car.
Looks a great SUV. Have had Vauxhall cars before and always found them very reliable!
Wow a great looking motor. We have a Vauxhall but it is not as grand as this one
Wow a great family car.
This looks such a brilliant family car.

I’m always keeping an eye out for what would be suitable as our next family car! Good to read reviews like this to get a feel for what the car is like.
I bet you enjoyed reviewing this lovely car.
Wow how do I get one ?
What a fantastic car – nice and big. Looks like you all had great fun with this
cant wait to get a new car! This one looks great!

We’ve recently been looking for a bigger car – this goes on the list!
It really does fit the bill for a sport utility vehicle.
Ooh I like that . Shame i can’t drive….o crash whilst walking ha ha
Looks nice and roomy
Sounds like a good ride! I’m always a fan of Mercedes.
If I was going to buy a new car it would be a vauxhall
This would be the sort of car I would love
Now you are talking cars.
Looks and sounds like it was a great car to test out. Certainly seems to have everything you would want.
love the colour, id love a nice car
It looks like a great family car
Dream car for family, needs to be practical, comfortable, economic (reasonably priced, quality, low maintenance, etc). We need to consider the older generation, the disabled, as well as baby / children. So comfort, space/ room, accessibility, storage space within the car boot, etc are aspects we would be taking into consideration.Adaptability can be appropriate.
Vauxhall, I do like Vauxhall. May have a look at this model when next at a car showroom.
looks fab, I love the colour…that’s such a girl thing to say lol! – It looks like it has quite a high driving position too, I like that about cars.
Great review – this looks great! Perfect family car 🙂
This has to be one of the best cars on the market for families and explorers love it!
It has plenty of boot space for a buggy and shopping, it looks like a wonderful family car
Just looking out the window today and thinking how perfect this SUV would be for a drive in the country.

Looks a great car

Definitely my colour and style of car pure comfort
I’m very jealous. I have a neurology condition so not allowed to drive which is an inconvenience that I have kind of got used too as much as one can
Our eldest has an audi I think it is for his family which he loves
Looks like a fab family car with some great accessories
Hope that you have many hours of comfort whilst you are driving
This looks fab! Really helpful im looking for a new car.
The navigation and infotainment system that sported a large screen is a big plus. I need to be able to see at a glance what is on the screen and not squint at small graphics.
I would love to have this car for myself
The design looks modern and chunky – a good looking SUV!

Vauxhalls have always been my favourite make of car. My first car, 25 years ago was an Astra Mark 1. This one has so many features I think I would be occupied for days playing with them and just enjoying it. You look very happy in the pics.
Really nice car and the thing I like about it is its got parking sensors!
One of the lovely things about a fab family car like this is the opportunity to explore new places.
Lots of great features and tech. Nice car indeed.
This is super handy im looking for a new car currently so this has helped loads!
A great blog about a fabulous suv. Love the photos too.
Having a different make of SUV I agree the features are great and the extra space always welcome they are good family cars.
It looks like a great family car. I’m obsessed with the colour too!
Look like a cracking family car. Alot of great features.
