A quick initial report on our new Grandland X demonstrator as it joins the fleet.

Grandland X Elite Nav, 1.2 Turbo (130PS)
Launch Edition - one of only 300 with a unique specification:

  • Topaz blue metallic
  • Black roof and mirror caps
  • Jet black leather AGR interior trim with heated/cooled front seats (rear heated only).
  • Premium LED adaptive forward lighting with projector headlights
  • Panoramic camera
  • Silver roof rails
  • Heated leather covered steering wheel
  • Heated windscreen
  • Satnav
  • AutoPark Assist with camera & FR/Rear sensors

Some cars join the demo fleet with little or no fanfare, but others, and this one in particular, get the full brass band welcome - our Grandland X Launch Edition is now a fully-fledged member of the team and has already been out & about on numerous test drives. This is a short report, mainly to announce its arrival, and to highlight a couple of tech features that have already been the subject of high praise.

The headlights: officially called 'Premium LED Adaptive Forward Lighting' they're a version of those found on the Insignia and are equally magnificent in use - and they also have a pointless but groovy 'dance' that is performed when they switch on!

Reversing Camera: But not just a simple rear view - cameras in the nose and under the wing mirrors provide a slightly weird but great when you're used to it 360 view of your car from above as it moves backward - it's as if a drone is sent up every time you hit reverse! Absolute genius.

More reports to follow, but in the meantime, if you'd like a test drive, give us a call on 01978 290077
