2020 Opel Crossland X Review

The 2020 Opel Crossland X remains the smallest crossover SUV in the lineup. It is very practical, although it is only 165 inches long. Interesting, Crossland X has a longer wheelbase than the Mokka X. Both of these will perform the best in urban areas. However, you can take your Crossland on a longer journey. If you have a larger family, think about SUV from the upper category. The subcompact crossover is not offering too much room inside.

The new 2020 Opel Crossland X is not taking too big changes. The crossover is still fresh after it was released in 2017. Whatsoever, the speed of innovations is incredible nowadays. So, minor updates could take place to refresh the lineup. Interior details, new trim levels, and even a hybrid drivetrain are possible. Fewer emissions and better fuel economy will make this model different from others. But, these are only speculations at this point. What is happening with Crossland X, we will see late this year.

2020 Opel Crossland X Future

Crossland X sales exceeded expectations. Because of that, the subcompact crossover has a special place in the company. More than 100,000 units sold in the previous two years are making Opel develop more advanced features. However, since the base model is a diesel, the German carmaker has to create special systems to cut the emissions. The Selective Catalytic Reduction could get a new, better version with 2020 Opel Crossland.

Engines and Specs

After the big scandal in the US with fake reports about emissions, Opel is under the monitor in Europe as well. That is why the company can’t afford to lose any more of its harmed reputation. Whatsoever, they will continue to develop and use diesel engines. The main source of power for the 2020 Opel Crossland X will be a 1.6-liter turbodiesel. This unit is capable to produce 120 hp and 300 Nm of torque. It is meeting Euro standards 6d-TEMP. A six-speed manual transmission is distributing power to front wheels. All-wheel drive is going to be optional in 2020 season.

The new Crossland X adds a start/stop system as well. Few other tunings will boost the fuel economy. As said, the Selective Catalytic Reduction will help to protect the environment. It holds most of the nitrogen oxide.

Petrol unit for the 2020 Opel Crossland X is a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine. there are three kinds of setups. Buyers can choose between 80, 110, and 130 hp. Besides the most powerful model that pairs the engine with the same gearbox as a diesel unit, other versions will use a 5-speed manual transmission. A six-speed auto is optional for some trim levels.

Hybrid

The new 2020 Opel Crossland X could become a hybrid model. Well, in this case, Opel would gain a respectable fuel economy. Whatsoever, the crossover is already fuel-friendly vehicle with an excellent consumption. In the future, we can expect even better numbers. The system is going to be based on the petrol unit, that is for sure. But, a 1.2-liter engine is too small. Crossland X hybrid could borrow a drivetrain from Mokka X or Grandland X. A 1.6-liter four-cylinder is a good start. We will see what kind of hybrid configuration engineers will choose. If the Crossland becomes PHEV, that would bring some spectacular numbers to the subcompact crossover segment.
