Technical characteristics

If we compare the Opel Grandland of 2022 with the crossovers of previous generations, as well as "brothers" in the class from Peugeot and Citroen, then I must say that the German model received a really new body.

The price level for the German novelty cannot be called low. All photos revealing the characteristics of the car are published in the review.

The 2022 Opel Grandland is one of the safest models in its class. The automaker has equipped the cross with a variety of standard services and electronic assistants, which are designed to analyze the situation on the road and prevent the likelihood of a car collision.


In addition, he received the largest possible set of airbags that will protect passengers from the fatal consequences of an accident. If we talk about the results of the Opel Grandland crash test, then no official data on this matter has been published on the network, despite the presence of a mass of methods for checking the security system.


Handling and off-road performance

Despite its 188mm ground clearance, the German SUV does not have off-road capabilities. Its maximum is movement on a dirt road and overcoming minimal difficulties and obstacles. In addition, the crossover does not have underbody protection, and therefore serious off-road tests can lead to damage to its suspension and other units.


But the car's handling is excellent. Opel Grandland is able to instantly react to any steering wheel movements performed by the driver, to keep on a given trajectory even during difficult road sections, and also to perform a given maneuver.


Advantages and disadvantages

Like any car, the 2022 Opel Grandland has its positives as well as disadvantages. The former include:

  • a high degree of safety that the crossover provides to its passengers thanks to a variety of electronic assistants, as well as the presence of a set of airbags;
  • service availability;
  • acceptable level of dynamics.

The list of car disadvantages is as follows:

  • no variability in terms of technical capabilities;
  • the relative high cost of the model, taking into account the class in which it is sold;
  • far from the best off-road qualities;
  • not the most spacious interior.


As for the appearance of the German model, here the Opel Grandland of 2022 is made in a typical design for modern "Germans". The body is distinguished by the utmost roundness and mass of smooth lines. At the front, a compact radiator grille is installed, combined with a very powerful air intake in the front bumper. Curiously, the head optics of the crossover is made, which has the shape of a trapezoid and is supplemented by broken strips of LEDs for the running lights. The side part has a standard design and stands out due to the installation of a plastic body kit around the perimeter, as well as the roof color in black, which is assumed for top-end modifications of the car. The rear has a spoiler and a wing, due to which the cross has become closer to the sports car segment.


The interior of the SUV looks rustic, but it is very functional, due to the fact that all control systems for the built-in capabilities of the car are activated via a touchscreen display for the multimedia system. The front seats in the car are of high quality and comfortable. In addition, the buyer can purchase an option with sports seats. Thanks to the lumbar support, as well as the various adjustments available, passengers do not get tired even during long journeys. Despite the fact that the dimensions of the German car are not too large, the luggage compartment here can be considered roomy. In the minimum version, it holds 514 liters of cargo, and with the rear seats folded down - up to 1652 liters.
