Holden's European sister brand Opel has revealed its newest small SUV contender, the Crossland X.

The new SUV has a focus on urban family flexibility, blurring the lines between hatchback and SUV.

In Europe the Crossland X will join the range beneath the existing small Mokka X which shares its underpinnings (though not its design) with the locally-available Holden Trax.

Both the Mokka X and Trax offer optional all-wheel drive in overseas markets, as opposed to the Crossland X which will come with front-wheel drive only - much like the Holden Trax does in Australia, removing its potential point of difference in the local market.

With a development of Opel’s current design language on show, the Crossland X features sculpted bodysides, a chrome-lined floating roof, winged grille motif and Opel’s Adaptive Forward Lighting LED headlights.

Beneath the surface though the Crossland X is built on the PSA PF1 platform, shared with the Peugeot 2008 and Citroen C4 Cactus, with engines expected to mirror the range of three- and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines offered by those vehicles, with Opel yet to confirm engine options.

Forward collision alert with pedestrian detection, autonomous emergency braking, speed sign recognition, driver fatigue detection and blind spot recognition will be offered.

Inside the Crossland X features seats designed to comply with the German Campaign for Healthier Backs, 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and sliding rear seats with up to 410 litres of boot capacity - a best-in-class figure according to Opel.

Sitting on a footprint some 16cm shorter than the Astra, with a roof that sits 10cm taller, the Crossland X arrives to fill in for the previous Opel Meriva compact MPV.

With no product gap to fill in Australia and the updated Holden Trax set to go on sale here soon, the Crossland X is unlikely to join Holden’s lineup, despite the current Astra and next Commodore being sourced from Opel.
