Vauxhall to release Crosswind X crossover 0
2017 will see Vauxhall release a new crossover called the Crosswind X. Little has been officially released about the new model, but the company has confirmed that it will sit alongside the existing Mokka X, and have its own identity.
A larger version of the new vehicle will also be released, aimed at sitting alongside the Insignia, as a flagship model.
Both the new vehicles are part of a collaboration with PSA Peugeot-Citroen.
Sources from within the motor industry believe that the Crosswind X will act as a replacement to the current Meriva B-MPV. At the recent Paris Motor Show, held last month, Opel (Vauxhall’s European sister brand) Chairman Karl-Thomas Neumann, said that the new vehicle would be a “B-CUV” – a combination of an SUV and a MPV.
Vauxhall have targeted the Crosswind X at families requiring agility and convenience in urban driving, but also with enough comfort and performance to cover long distances.
The brand’s managing director, Rory Harvey has said that they believe customer expectations to be changing, which heralds the perfect time to release a new model, catering for a more modern type of buyer, “The Crossland X will sit next to the Mokka X in our range, but their identities will be well-defined, and we anticipate that each will have its own following,” he said.
