Opel Grand­land X wins off road award

The Corkman - - SUMMER MOTORING 2018 -

PRAC­TI­CAL, full of in­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies and every model with its own dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter – this is the Opel X-Fam­ily con­sist­ing of the Grand­land X, Cross­land X and Mokka X. How­ever, the Opel SUV fam­ily is not only im­press­ing cus­tomers with its di­verse qual­ity, it is also very pop­u­lar with the read­ers of Off Road and SUV Magazin. They have just voted the sporty and el­e­gant Opel Grand­land X as the best car in its seg­ment in the 2018 Off Road Awards. It is the first time that read­ers could vote for their favourite in the 2WD-SUV seg­ment with the Opel Grand­land X leav­ing eleven com­peti­tors in its wake.

“We are es­pe­cially happy when we re­ceive such read­ers’ choice awards be­cause they show that our cus­tomers like our new Grand­land X. We have es­tab­lished a true chal­lenger amongst SUVs in our new Grand­land X. It looks great, comes with tech­no­log­i­cal highlights such as In­tel­liGrip trac­tion con­trol and, above all, of­fers driv­ing plea­sure in abun­dance,” said Michael Wal­ter, Mar­ket­ing Man­ager Com­pact Cars & LCV.

But the dy­namic new­comer is not the only Opel model to con­vince the read­ers of the two mag­a­zines. The Opel Cross­land X also im­pressed with its stylish ap­pear­ance and flex­i­ble con­fig­u­ra­tion pos­si­bil­i­ties and fin­ished third in the same cat­e­gory as the Grand­land X.

The two lat­est ad­di­tions to the Opel SUV fam­ily are thus con­tin­u­ing the Off Road suc­cess story of the Mokka X. The ro­bust all-wheel drive ad­ven­turer is a two-time win­ner in the sub-com­pact SUV seg­ment (in 2013 and 2014). There are good rea­sons for this se­rial suc­cess: All three mod­els of­fer driv­ing plea­sure and prac­ti­cal­ity in ad­di­tion to nu­mer­ous tech­nol­ogy and com­fort highlights such as For­ward Col­li­sion Alert, LED head­lights and AGR-cer­ti­fied er­gonomic seats while also de­liv­er­ing out­stand­ing value for money.

The Off Road read­ers have been voted for their favourite off-road ve­hi­cles and SUVs since 1982. This year, read­ers of sister mag­a­zine SUV Magazin were en­ti­tled to vote for the first time. More than 43,500 votes were cast in the cur­rent sur­vey. The off road and SUV fans could choose
