The German automaker’s all-new SUV, coming to replace the Zafira in the model line, will have direct competitors in mind – namely the X-Trail and Kodiaq as it will also offer a seven-seat optional arrangement.

The model will come with a different design compared to the recently introduced Crossland X, with bigger hood and a massive rear end, making it more practical for larger families. It will have the same styling as the latest Opel models, with the grille and optional IntelliLux full-LED headlights, while at the back the latest spy shots reveal a racked final window assembly for sportier proportions. Just like the Crossland X, we know the Grandland X is the work of a partnership between GM and PSA, so it has a platform twin in the Peugeot 3008.

This means not only common parts, but there are also possible engine shares, with the French having under the hood a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol, as well as turbocharged diesels with 1.6 and 2.0-liters. We’re also inclined to believe that while the 3008 is only offered as a FWD model, the Opel brethren will also have the option of all-wheel drive, maybe the system recently introduced with the new generation Insignia Grand Sport. Naturally, six speed manual and automatic gearboxes are to be expected.
