Vauxhall Crossland, Grandland and Insignia get new trim levels
Vauxhall’s new Design, GS Line and Ultimate trims are said to be up to £2,400 cheaper than previous versions
- All Vauxhalls to get new trim levels for 2022
- GS Line brings sportier styling
- Crossland starts from £18,415
Vauxhall has refreshed three more of its models with new trim levels. The Vauxhall Crossland and Grandland SUVs are now offered in Design, GS Line and Ultimate specifications, while the Vauxhall Insignia hatchback is available in Design and GS Line spec. The new models are available to order now.
The new trim levels match those available on the new Vauxhall Astra, and they’ll be rolled out to Vauxhall’s other models before the end of the year.
2022 Vauxhall Crossland
Replacing SE and SRi, the new Design and GS Line versions add extra equipment. Over SE, Design adds more safety tech including autonomous emergency braking, and retains a seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. GS Line adds a fashionable black styling pack and larger wheels, plus a bigger infotainment screen with sat nav. Ultimate gets larger 19-inch alloys, LED headlights and extra convenience and safety features.
The Design trim is manual-only and starts from £18,415 for the 82bhp petrol engine. We’d recommend paying the £810 extra for the more powerful turbocharged engine if you plan to venture out of town, though. GS Line kicks off at £20,840 and the range-topping Ultimate model starts at £24,515.
2022 Vauxhall Grandland
The larger Vauxhall Grandland SUV sees the Elite trim discontinued, with Ultimate stepping in at the top of the range. Design gets a good level of standard equipment, with more being added further up the range. Like the Crossland, the GS Line gets black exterior trim to match its ‘Vizor’ front end.
The Grandland’s petrol and diesel engines both produce 128bhp, or there’s a 222bhp plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version that’s about £3,000 more than the automatic diesel engine. Previously, a four-wheel-drive PHEV version with more power was available, but this looks to have been discontinued.
2022 Vauxhall Insignia
Vauxhall’s rival to the Volkswagen Passat and Ford Mondeo has also been updated for 2022, despite declining sales. Besides a range-topping petrol engine, the Insignia comes with diesel power, but it’s no longer the bargain it once was. Prices start at £30,720 for Design trim with a 120bhp diesel engine, rising to £40,075 for a 172bhp diesel engine with an automatic gearbox on GS Line trim.
