After the highly successful Grandland X launch back in September at the Frankfurt International Motor Show, Vauxhall has now introduced a range topping Ultimate trim level to the large SUV.
Ultimate trim is available to order now alongside the rest of the existing lineup SE, Tech Line Nav, Sport Nav and Elite Nav.
The Ultimate is also available on the compact Crossland SUV and also the mid-sized Mokka X. Back to the Grandland and with the Ultimate comes a brand new 177bhp Diesel engine and a newly designed 8-speed automatic transmission.
Standard equipment on the new model across all trim levels offers a range of modern technology, connectivity and comfort. Including Vauxhall's emergency and accident system, On Star, that can alert the emergency services in the event of an accident or crash. Other standard features include rear parking sensors, dual zone climate control and lane departure warning.
Grandland X Ultimate Highlights
The Ultimate adds a whole range of features and sits on 19-inch diamond-cut five twin-spoke alloy wheels, with a tyre size of 235/50 R19. Vauxhall have also teamed up with Denon to provide their audio know how on the entertainment system.
Contrasting black roof and door mirrors is also added alongside a fixed panoramic glass roof with an electrically operated blind. Other highlights include alloy sports pedals, automatic cruise control, 360-degree panoramic camera, heated windscreen, steering wheel, front seats and rear seats.
The Ultimate exclusively comes with the new 2.0L turbo diesel named the blue injection and delivers 177PS and 400NM of Torque to give the large SUV an impressive 0-60mph time of just 8.6 seconds. Emissions remain super low for a diesel with 128g/km and achieves an impressive 57.6mpg on the combined cycle.
The eight speed automatic has been adapted to the Grandland X after first appearing in the new insignia range. Vauxhall have engineered the new transmission to provide a smooth and linear shift pattern.
