Vauxhall has added a new Griffin Edition trim for the Corsa, Astra and Grandland X. Available to order now, prices start from £18,530 for the Corsa Griffin Edition, £19,245 for the Astra Griffin Edition and £25,765 for the Grandland X Griffin Edition.
The new Corsa Griffin Edition hatchback comes with 17-inch bi-colour alloy wheels, a black roof and spoiler, LED headlights and daytime running lights, as well as automatic lights and windscreen wipers. Buyers also get heated seats and steering wheel, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, a seven-inch touchscreen and seven-inch digital instrument panel with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Griffin-branded floor mats.
Engine options include a 74bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine with a five-speed manual gearbox and a 99bhp turbocharged version of the same engine, which is available with a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The diesel variant is powered by Vauxhall’s 101bhp 1.5-litre engine, which is matched to a six-speed manual.
The new Astra Griffin Edition is available as a five-door hatchback or Sports Tourer estate. It has 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, a contrasting gloss black finish for the roof and door mirrors and dark tinted rear windows with chrome surrounds.
Standard equipment includes Griffin-branded floor mats, Vauxhall’s Multimedia Sat Nav system with a seven-inch colour touchscreen, dual zone climate control, and heated front seats and steering wheel. All models also come with front and rear parking sensors and a Driving Assistance Pack, which includes forward collision alert, lane keep assist and automatic emergency braking.
Buyers can choose from a turbocharged 143bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine, which is linked to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. Alternatively, a 120bhp 1.5-litre diesel engine comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard or an optional nine-speed automatic.
Like the Astra Griffin Edition, the new Grandland X Griffin Edition SUV comes with the same 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels and gloss black paint on the roof and door mirrors, while the rear windows get dark tinted glass. Silver-effect roof rails, chrome window surrounds and a powered tailgate complete the exterior upgrades.
Standard equipment includes a Multimedia Navi Pro infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen and sat nav. It also gets keyless entry and start, dual zone climate control and Griffin-embossed floor mats.
There’s a choice of two engines: a turbocharged 128bhp 1.2-litre petrol and a turbocharged 128bhp 1.5-litre diesel. Both are fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, with an eight-speed automatic transmission available as an option.
