Vauxhall Crossland - MPG, CO2 and running costs
The Vauxhall Crossland uses only petrol engine, and while it is efficient, it can't match the economy of hybrid rivals
Unlike some of Vauxhall's other models that have adopted electric power and hybrid technology, the Crossland has only ever been offered with petrol or diesel engines. The line-up has been reduced to just one engine: a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol, and the only clever fuel-saving technology it has is a stop-start system to prevent wasting fuel idling at traffic lights.
Our pick of the petrol range is the 108bhp engine paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. According to Vauxhall, this combination will return up to 48mpg with CO2 emissions of 134g/km. Opt for the 128bhp automatic version, and you’ll see fuel economy drop to 44.1mpg, while CO2 rises to 144g/km.
With figures like those, the Crossland competes well with the standard Nissan Juke or Renault Captur. However, it doesn't come close to the fuel efficiency you can expect from a Kia Niro Hybrid, Toyota Yaris Cross or Renault Captur E-Tech.
The current Crossland lineup ranges between insurance groups 16 and 19. Opting for the automatic gearbox will land you in group 19, while a 1.2-petrol with a manual gearbox will be the cheapest to insure in group 16.
Standard security equipment across all models includes electronically protected audio and infotainment hardware, a luggage area cover, an immobiliser system and remote central locking.

Vauxhall products haven't always been the best at retaining value in the second-hand market. This isn't great news if you've bought a brand-new vehicle, but it does make for a bargain if you're looking at a used model.
Our expert data suggests the Crossland won’t fare well, retaining around 38 per cent of its value over three years and 36,000 miles.
