JUST as the Cross­land X is based on Peu­geot’s 2008, so the Grand­land X takes its plat­form and en­gines from the 3008. The re­sult is a more con­ser­va­tively styled fam­ily SUV for those who find the French model too ex­treme.

Light con­trols and no­tice­able body roll don’t ex­actly mark the Vaux­hall out as a driver’s car. But it fights back with one of the class’s largest boots, plus an in­tu­itive in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem, re­spectable ride qual­ity and a strong and fru­gal range of petrol and diesel en­gines.

Price range: £22,310-£29,535 Our pick: 1.2 Turbo SE (£22,485) En­gine: 1.2-litre 3cyl petrol, 128bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd man, front-wheel drive Top speed: 117mph Econ­omy: 55.4mpg CO2: 117g/km
