At the time of this test in early 2022, Crossland prices started at around £18,500, there are three trim levels ('Design', 'GS Line' and 'Ultimate') and Vauxhall reckons that over 65% of sales of this car will be to private buyers. For reference, pricing for this car's similarly-sized but more modern-looking Mokka SUV showroom stablemate starts from around £22,000.
As before with the Crossland, there's an emphasis on petrol power in the line-up, all the green pump-fuelled engines being 1.2-litre three cylinder units. If at all possible, try and avoid the entry-level normally aspirated 83PS variant and find the extra that Vauxhall asks for the pokier yet more efficient turbocharged version of this powerplant. A premium of around £800 over the base engine gets you a Crossland 1.2 Turbo with 110PS and a 6-speed manual gearbox, which means a starting price of just over £19,000. Find a further £2,000 or so on top of that, you can get yourself the same unit with 130PS and an auto gearbox.
As for diesel power, well we'd question whether you really need it, given the relatively small annual mileages likely to be covered by this kind of car. If you really are set on black pump motoring, then you'll need a budget starting from just under £20,500 for the base 110PS Turbo D diesel, with 6-speed manual transmission and 'Design' trim. Another £2,500 or so will get you this diesel unit with mid range 'GS Line' trim and an auto gearbox. Or, if you stretch up to top 'Ultimate' spec and pay around £25,500, you can have this 1.5-litre diesel with a slightly upratefd 120PS output and a manual gearbox. Got all that? Good.
