“The cut in cost is welcome, and to be honest a car like this didn't need the daft power output of the old car. It’s fine overall, but there’s a lot of desirable competition. One for the PCP/business deal brigade.”

“The new model interests me more, purely because it looks more distinctive and is a reasonable price at last. It's a shame the engineers couldn't find a little more efficiency so it dropped a BIK % rating for company car drivers.”

Is the Vauxhall Grandland X Hybrid a good car?

There are very few really bad cars these days, and we are sure Grandland X owners will be very happy. But there are better rivals which cost less, in our opinion.

What is the BIK rate of a Vauxhall Grandland X Hybrid?

One of the big attractions of the Vauxhall Grandland is the low tax rates for company car drivers. For the 2022/23 tax year it is just 12%.

Is the Vauxhall Grandland X Hybrid able to tow?

Yes – it can tow up to 1,250kg. 

Will the Vauxhall Grandland X Hybrid be cheap to run?

That depends entirely on how you charge and drive it. If you use the Grandland X Hybrid in the way it is intended and plug in regularly for short journeys, it will reward you with big savings on your fuel bill. However if you are high-mileage company car driver and just using the hybrid route as a tax dodge, you’ll find the fuel consumption over long distances to be a bit of a shock compared to a diesel.

Can I use a rapid charger with a Vauxhall Grandland X Hybrid?

The maximum charge rate of the Grandland X Hybrid is 3.6kW, or 6.6kW if you choose to pay £500 for an upgrade. You can't use a DC rapid charger.
