The renewed Opel Crossland, which replaces the model launched in 2017, becomes the second of the brand to sport the new ‘Opel Vizor’ front end after the brand new Opel Mokka.
Thus, the grille is streamlined by stretching along the entire front and merging with the headlights, which maintain the light signature in the form of a double gull wing. It also houses the brand’s logo in the center and, under it, we find a new larger bumper with air intakes on both sides and surrounded by silver protections (in the Ultimate version).

On a technical level, the improvements to the 2021 Crossland translate into new springs and dampers for the McPherson front suspension and torsion rear axle. Also, a new intermediate axis of the steering column has been added, which improves the precision of the steering and the centering, according to the brand.
Under the hood, five engine options will be offered: three gasoline and two diesel. At the moment, no sign of electrified versions.
The Opel Crossland can mount a 1.2 turbocharged gasoline engine, with two power levels to choose from 110 hp or 130 hp. The access version is associated with a six-speed manual transmission, while the most powerful will be offered with that transmission or a six-speed automatic.
About diesel, the engine will be a 1.5 capable of developing 110 hp or 120 hp. In this case, the engine torque does vary between the two options, amounting to 250 Nm and 300 Nm, respectively, and the transmission is manual for the first and automatic for the second.
Regarding driver assistance systems, the small SUV will be available with fully adaptive LED headlights, Head-Up display, frontal collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane departure and driver fatigue alert, warning of vehicles in the blind spot, panoramic rear camera, automatic parking assistant, or cruise control with speed limiter together with the traffic signal reader, among others.
Reservations will open “very soon”, Opel said, although prices are unknown at the moment.
