The all-new Vauxhall Grandland X SUV makes its first appearance ahead of its launch at the Frankfurt motor show this autumn. It's the third member of its X-branded family, slotting in at the top of the range, and going head to head with rivals, such as the Ford Kuga, Peugeot 5008 and Volkswagen Tiguan.

It's a full-sized SUV, with seating for five, and comes equipped with a raft of driver technology, as Vauxhall races to catch up with its opposition in the hotly contested family car market.

It promises to be a practical and usable car, too, with an elevated seating position, and acres of glass for a light and airy interior. Vauxhall says it will have class-leading interior space, and the luggage room looks impressive, with a load volume from 514 litres (which increases to 1,652 litres with the rear seats folded down).

Looking good, packed with tech

From the early images released by Vauxhall, it's clearly a good-looking car. It follows on from the Insignia Grand Sport in adopting a more 'premium' feeling design. It has highly sculpted wheelarches, and acres of cladding on the side to add to its go-anywhere appeal.

The interior looks good, too, and follows the Insignia in offering a de-cluttered dashboard and generously proportioned touchscreen. You'll be able to specify the Grandland X with the following equipment:

Styled for the family

It's unmistakably a Vauxhall, though, with contrasting roof treatments, plenty of chrome detailing, and the company's signature L-shaped LED daytime running lights. Vauxhall is promising that there will be many personalisation options, too.

We're intrigued by the AGR-certified premium ergonomic front seats, which promise great long-distance comfort. The option of a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats and smart tailgate, that opens with a kick, all ensure driver and passenger comfort, are also notable features likely to appeal to family drivers.
