Plusher, diesel Opel Grandland X added in Europe


With its alleged Monza / Omega X flagship SUV put on hold due to its sale to the PSA Group, Opel has instead introduced a new version of the Grandland X in Europe, dubbed Ultimate.

Adding in 19-inch alloy wheels, silver roof rails, Adaptive LED headlights, black roof and mirrors, a upscale Denon sound system and leather seats with heated front chairs, the Ultimate drops the 1.6-litre BlueHDi turbodiesel engine for a new 2.0-litre mill making 130 kW and 400 Nm of torque, with drive going to the front wheels only.

Also used in its mechanically identical twin, the Peugeot 5008, the oil-burner in the Grandland X is mated exclusively to a Aisin-sourced eight-speed automatic gearbox, with Opel claiming a top speed of 214 km/h and 0-100 km/h in 9.1 seconds. Fuel consumption is rated at 4.8-4.9 L/100 km.

Pricing for the Ultimate in Germany kicks-off at €37 320 (R609 343), although this engine, along with the aforementioned 1.6, is unlikely to form part of the local Grandland X range next year, leaving only the 96 kW/230 Nm 1.2-litre PureTech turbo-petrol.
