By now you are likely to have seen the new advert for the Crossland X which is evidently targeting families, with #pyjamamas at the forefront of their latest campaign. With that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at the new Vauxhall model, selecting our most family friendly features to help you decide whether this vehicle is ideal for you and your brood!
Inside the Crossland X
When looking for a car suitable for the whole family, the interior plays an important part. Needing extra leg room and space in the back can be the difference between a smooth ride and a journey from hell as the whole “who’s kicking who” saga begins. The designers at Vauxhall have clearly endured many car rides like this, as the Crossland X is a compact yet roomy SUV that keeps the kids comfortable, secure and out of reach.
Another notable change to the Crossland X’s interior is the generous boot. Boasting features such as an adjustable floor and sliding rear seats (available soon) means you can increase your luggage capacity so no toy gets left behind!
For any family, safety is at the forefront of any buying decision and the Crossland X doesn’t disappoint. The 180° panoramic rear-view camera gives a clear view of the area behind your car and helps place the car perfectly, without needing to strain your neck. This is an advanced feature ideal for parents regularly embarking on the school run and needing an extra pair of eyes to look out for little ones running in and around the cars. Stop and start your journey safely by being able to literally have eyes in the back of your head.
Other safety features include traffic sign recognition and Vauxhall’s OnStar connectivity, which among other things will automatically alert the emergency services if you are involved in a collision.
Increase the safety spec of your small SUV by adding automatic emergency braking for a small cost. This high tech feature gives you peace of mind when driving with the little ones in the car, keeping the whole family safe with the Crossland X.
If the kids get bored of gazing out into the countryside through the larger windows, the touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring may help keep them occupied. This is ideal for families embarking on longer journeys as the kids can sync their phone to the car and play their favourite music along the way.
So, adjust your seat as you desire and gear up for any family outing- whether it’s the daily school run or a weekend away, the new Crossland X is a total favourite for all the family.
