Opel Crossland X 1.2 Enjoy (2018) Video Review

The compact family car market is so competitive that Opel has 2 offerings in the segment: the Mokka X and recently introduced Crossland X, which slots in under its sibling. In a sea of small crossovers, does the family-oriented, practically-minded Crossland X do enough to stand out?

Now that the French PSA group has taken ownership of Opel and General Motors has exited the South African market (February 2018), the much-loved German marque is distributed locally by the Unitrans-owned Williams Hunt group, with its network of 35 dealers.

Tested here in 1.2T Enjoy specification, the Crossland X rivals the Renault Captur, Suzuki Vitara (a 2-times #CarsAwards compact family car champion), Ford EcoSport, Hyundai Creta and Mazda CX-3, to name just a few big-hitters. In Enjoy spec, the newcomer certainly offers nifty features that add to its overall appeal, but will its niche packaging find favour with buyers?
