Opel Grand country starts 2017 X

Rüsselsheim, 17 November 2016

Opel fans need to remember more and more new names: cross country, X brings the brand in the autumn of 2017 even a grand country X. The X in the name was first introduced at the Mocha X and features in the future all vehicles that go towards the SUV.

Grand country x for the compact class

However, Opel both new models called CUV (crossover utility vehicle). Do you mean: A hybrid of van and SUV without all-wheel drive. As well as the revisions of the Peugeot 2008 and 3008, which form the technical basis. This enables a size technical classification of the two X models in the Opel program. In a first official video of Mocha X and the two new "country" models from the bird's eye view can be seen. The cross country is hardly longer than the Mocha X X, we expect around 4.30 metres. The Grand should be about 4.45 meters long X with a wheelbase of 2.67 metres. Finally, Opel thus had a rival for the VW Tiguan.

29 new models by 2020

Opel itself sees the cross country X in the B-segment of the Mocha X, the Grand country X, however, in the C-segment, where are the Astra Frolics. At the Grand country X should be the name of program: announced is an elevated seating position, a good all-round visibility and an easy access. However, the Grand country will initially inherit X not the recently lifted Zafira. It is open whether Rüsselsheim is still a CUV on the basis of the new Peugeot 5008. Such a model could inherit the hapless Antara. Total includes the Opel model offensive until 2020 29 vehicles, here are also tracked changes and bodystyles included. (rh)
