Vauxhall SUVs 2019: full guide and latest deals

Struggling to pick between Vauxhall SUVs? We’re on hand to help

If you're not sure which Vauxhall SUV would suit you, then don't worry - you're not the only one. 

There may only be three Vauxhall sport utility vehicles (SUVs) that are currently on sale but they are all close together in size, price and design. All three are taller and more rugged than regular family hatchbacks like the Vauxhall Astra or Ford Focus.

In short, the Crossland X is the smallest, the Mokka X is the middleground, and the Grandland X is the largest SUV Vauxhall currently makes.

As with much of the Vauxhall range, these SUVs lose value quite quickly, which is bad news if you're paying the list price for a new car, but much better for used car buyers, who can snap up a nearly-new car for thousands of pounds less than the brochure price of a new car.

Vauxhall Crossland X

✔  Best Vauxhall SUV for squeezing into tight spaces

Less good for wading through trenches

Latest Vauxhall Crossland X deals from £7,395
Finance from £127 per month

The smallest Vauxhall SUV is the Crossland X and it's more of a crossover than an out-and-out SUV: it's a tall hatchback that isn't available with four-wheel drive and has a limited amount of space between the ground and the bottom of the car.

It’s a similar size to the Nissan Juke, Hyundai Kona and Seat Arona, but offers more interior space than most other cars in its class, so tall adults will be able to sit comfortably in the back. Standard equipment is generous, and includes a dashboard touchscreen fitted with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easy use of your phone apps; alloy wheels; and climate control.

However, it doesn't feel particularly sophisticated when you get going, with lots of wind noise and a bumpy, bouncy ride over uneven roads.

Vauxhall Mokka X

✔  Best Vauxhall SUV for standard equipment levels and reliability

Less good for ride quality 

Latest Vauxhall Mokka X deals from £7,995
Finance from £141 per month

Why do Vauxhall have a second SUV that's virtually the same size as the Crossland X? It's a question that's left many customers confused and the answer isn't entirely clear.

Unlike the Crossland X, the Mokka X is available with four-wheel drive, so should provide more grip when accelerating on slippery roads, or when towing.

Inside it feels well put together, but, like all other Vauxhalls, some of the plastics aren’t nice to touch or to look at. There's also less space inside than in the Crossland X. Rear passengers, in particular, lose out when it comes to headroom.

As it's more expensive and no more comfortable than the Crossland X, it's hard to make a case for a new Mokka X, even though equipment levels are high, with dual-zone climate control, parking sensors and alloy wheels on all cars, plus sat-nav on most. As a used car, however, it's more competitive. Three year-old cars cost from £7,995, or per month £141 on finance.

Vauxhall Grandland X

✔  Best Vauxhall SUV for practicality

Less good for squeezing into tight spaces 

Latest Vauxhall Grandland X deals from £11,999
Finance from £169 per month

Vauxhall's largest SUV is similar in size to other family cars, such as the Nissan Qashqai, Renault Kadjar and Ford Kuga. Its 514-litre boot is larger than any of those cars and the discount you can expect on a new or nearly-new vehicle usually makes the Grandland X a competitive choice.

At the moment the car doesn't stand out from the competition, with average levels of comfort and equipment. This will change in the summer when a plug-in hybrid version will arrive, offering largely electric motoring over shorter journeys, when fully charged, with a conventional engine for when the battery level drops. Its low carbon dioxide emissions will bring down the cost of company car tax for business users.
