Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

THE Cross­land X bor­rows its un­der­pin­nings (but not the tiny steer­ing wheel) from the Peu­geot 2008, re­sult­ing in a roomy small SUV with a range of ef­fi­cient petrol and diesel en­gines.

This Vaux­hall re­placed the age­ing Meriva miniMPV, al­though be­cause it’s a sim­i­lar size and price to the Mokka X (above), some buy­ers are sure to be con­fused. There’s also no get­ting away from the dis­tinctly av­er­age driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Price range: £16,555-£23,530 Our pick: 1.2 Turbo ecotec SE (£17,875) En­gine: 1.2-litre 3cyl petrol, 108bhp Trans­mis­sion: 5-spd man, front-wheel drive Top speed: 117mph Econ­omy: 58.9mpg CO2: 109g/km
