The Johannesburg-Opel improved Crossland compact SUV is set to hit the South African showroom this month, and importers have just announced the price and specifications of the new model.
Customers can choose from two specification grades out of three model derivatives. The range begins with the edition model R324900, which features a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated 3-cylinder engine, offers only 60kW and 118Nm, and is combined with five. -Speed manual gearbox.
Opel also offers an entry-edition trim grade with a more powerful (81kW, 205Nm) 1.2-liter turbocharged engine. The price is R374 900 and it comes standard with a 6-speed automatic gearbox. This engine and gearbox combo is also available in the more luxurious elegance trim grades sold on the R399900.
However, there is bad news for diesel fans as the 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine in the pre-renovation lineup appears to have failed.
