Vauxhall Crossland X review - Reliability and safety

Based on the Peugeot 2008, the Vauxhall Crossland X should prove a safe and dependable car

All cars come with various safety systems such as lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition. Cruise control, ABS and tyre pressure monitoring are also included, while further up the range you’ll find switchable ESP and front and rear parking sensors. 

The Crossland X was crash tested by Euro NCAP in 2017 and received a full five-star rating, achieving 85% and 84% for adult and child safety, respectively.

Reliability shouldn’t be too much of a concern as the Crossland X uses plenty of tried and tested parts, although Vauxhall’s showing in our annual Driver Power owner satisfaction survey was less pleasing, with the brand finishing 29th out of 30 manufacturers.

Warranty

Vauxhall used to offer a lifetime warranty on its cars, limited to the first owner. However, it has subsequently scrapped the plan, as the way in which many people buy cars has seen customers chop and change models much more frequently. As a result, all Crossland X models come with a standardised three-year/60,000-mile warranty. Owners can extend this for an additional fee.

Servicing

All Vauxhall Crossland X models are subject to one-year or 20,000-mile service intervals, with a main service due every two years or 40,000 miles, whichever comes soonest. The brand offers servicing plans with fixed monthly costs starting from £15. This setup also includes discounts on ‘wear-and-tear’ repairs and 50 per cent off MoTs.
