Vauxhall Crossland review - Reliability and safety

The Crossland includes good levels of safety kit, but Vauxhall customer feedback could be better

All cars come with various safety systems such as lane departure warning and speed 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 (pre-name change) 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 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 24th out of 29 manufacturers.


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 models come with a standardised three-year/60,000-mile warranty. Owners can extend this for an additional fee.


All Vauxhall Crossland 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, including two years roadside assistance cover and your first MOT free.
