Vauxhall’s new and improved Grandland SUV to run on roads soon

London-based Vauxhall Motors recently introduced its revamped and improved SUV, Grandland. The new sleeker model boasts of a slew of advanced features and design tweaks to help it compete with the new Nissan Qashqai.

It has been reported that the Grandland drops its forerunner's "X" title, as seen previously with the other vehicles, namely Vauxhall's Crossland and Mokka, and adopts styling aspects from the smaller Mokka’s new design language.

As per credible sources, advanced Grandland now features adaptive IntelliLux LED pixel light units which have a total of 168 LEDs, allowing the automobile to adjust the light beams to better suit road conditions and oncoming vehicles so that other drivers are not caught off guard or distracted.

Importantly, the Grandland is now available with Night Vision, a revolutionary device that helps detect people and animals up to a distance of 100 metres away in darkness; which is a first for the Vauxhall.

The Grandland inherits the entirely digital Pure Panel infotainment system from the Mokka, so the new car's outward modifications are matched by a major tech overhaul on the interior. Speaking of which, the new model has a touchscreen display with a width of up to 10 inches, just like Mokka’s seven or ten inch display.

Evidently, a wireless phone charging and a built-in navigation system are accompaniments to the new Grandland. Adding to the existing features, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are some added inclusions that would enhance the overall experience of the driver and passengers.

As stated by Vauxhall, the enhanced infotainment is a driver-focused setup that aims to enhance safety by ensuring that drivers are not forced to take their eyes off the road for long.

Speculations have it that the Grandland is likely to offer a standard setup of essentials like a collision warning system, and cruise control among others powered by a 128bhp 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Besides, a more powerful 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol turbo unit could also make an appearance. However, the company is yet to validate the citing.
