Best in Class: Opel Grandland X Wins Off Road Award

Best in Class: Opel Grandland X Wins Off Road Award

  • Exciting Opel SUV: Crossland X City SUV finishes on podium too
  • Popular SUV family: Mokka X already with two readers’ choice awards


Rüsselsheim.  Practical, full of innovative technologies and every model with its own distinctive character – this is the Opel X-Family consisting of the Grandland X, Crossland X and Mokka X. However, the Opel SUV family is not only impressing customers with its diverse quality, it is also very popular with the readers of Off Road and SUV Magazin. They have just voted the sporty and elegant Opel Grandland X as the best car in its segment in the 2018 Off Road Awards. It is the first time that readers could vote for their favourite in the 2WD-SUV segment with the Opel Grandland X leaving eleven competitors in its wake.

“We are especially happy when we receive such readers’ choice awards because they show that our customers like our new Grandland X. We have established a true challenger amongst SUVs in our new Grandland X. It looks great, comes with technological highlights such as IntelliGrip traction control and, above all, offers driving pleasure in abundance,” said Michael Walter, Marketing Manager Compact Cars & LCV.

But the dynamic newcomer is not the only Opel model to convince the readers of the two magazines. The Opel Crossland X also impressed with its stylish appearance and flexible configuration possibilities and finished third in the same category as the Grandland X.

The two latest additions to the Opel SUV family are thus continuing the Off Road success story of the Mokka X. The robust all-wheel drive adventurer is a two-time winner in the sub-compact SUV segment (in 2013 and 2014). There are good reasons for this serial success: All three models offer driving pleasure and practicality in addition to numerous technology and comfort highlights such as Forward Collision Alert, LED headlights and AGR-certified ergonomic seats while also delivering outstanding value for money.

The Off Road readers have been voted for their favourite off-road vehicles and SUVs since 1982. This year, readers of sister magazine SUV Magazin were entitled to vote for the first time. More than 43,500 votes were cast in the current survey. The off road and SUV fans could choose between 174 vehicles in 12 categories.
