MPG

Mpg stands for miles per gallon, and is used to show how far your car is able to travel for every gallon (or 4.55 litres) of fuel it uses. The combined WLTP fuel economy figure provides a general overview of a car's fuel consumption over a variety of speeds and road types.

Insurance Group

Insurance groups range from 1 to 50 and dictates the cost of the vehicles insurance. The higher the group, the higher the insurance will be for the vehicle.

Performance (BHP)

BHP rates the engine performance of vehicles and stands for the brake horsepower.

CO2 (g/km)

CO2 is the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the vehicle in grams per kilometre travelled, the lower the CO2 emissions the cleaner the vehicle is for the environment.

Number Of Seats

The total number of seats in the vehicle.

Road Tax

Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £320 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.

Ten Second Review

Thanks to its association with the French PSA conglomerate, Vauxhall was able to introduce a Plug-in version of its mid-sized Grandland X SUV back in 2019. Now that car, rebadged simply 'Grandland', has been upgraded inside and out, with a Hybrid range based around the more affordable front-driven drivetrain. It remains an undeniably interesting package for a family buyer wanting a degree of EV tech but not quite ready to take the plunge into full-battery motoring.

Background

You might well have overlooked the existence of Vauxhall's Grandland mid-sized SUV, so, just to remind you, this is the Luton brand's version of the design which, with different bodywork but the same engineering is sold by Peugeot as the 3008 and by Citroen as the C5 Aircross. Both those cars feature plug-in hybrid electrified technology so, naturally, this Grandland gets it too - in front-driven 225PS form. Compared to PHEV rivals, it's a value-orientated package that now gains a sharper look and a more modern cabin.

Driving Experience

These days, Vauxhall only offers this Hybrid Grandland model with the lowered-powered 2WD 225PS petrol drivetrain; no one seemed much interested in the 4WD variant with 300PS, so it's been dropped. The engine is a Peugeot-derived 1.6-litre petrol turbo unit mated to a single electric motor with drive via an 8-speed auto gearbox. It's a pretty rapid confection - 60mph from rest takes 8.9s on the way to a top speed of 140mph (it's 84mph in all-electric drive, but getting anywhere near that would decimate the quoted 34 mile driving range capability). The bulk of this particular contender (1,735kgs) is evident in the slightly firmer way it rides across more terrible tarmac tears, an issue the engineers have tried to address with softer suspension settings. Which in turn results in an extra degree of body roll through the bends should you try and chuck this car about in the kind of manner a typical owner never would. You get three main driving modes, with the one you'll be using most of the time being the 'Hybrid' setting that chooses the best mix of electric and petrol propulsion to suit the driving style whilst optimising efficiency. The alternative settings are either 'Sport' (where the car combines the power of the electric and petrol motors to offer livelier performance). And 'Electric' (where the car uses only the battery-powered electric motor, resulting in an ultra-quiet and smooth drive with zero exhaust emissions.

Design and Build

As usual with a plug-in, there's nothing apart from different badging and an extra charging flap to designate this Hybrid variant's PHEV status. As well as losing an 'X' (in its name), this Grandland Hybrid has gained quite a lot in terms of its adoption of the brand's far more interesting 'Vizor' trim detailing on the front of the car. This sees Vauxhall's latest Griffin logo proudly positioned in the centre, flanked by slim LED headlamps and more muscular bumpers. As before, the dimensions (nearly 4.5m of length, nearly 1.9m of width and nearly 1.65m of height) position this Grandland just above smaller mid-sized SUVs Plug-ins (like the Kia Niro PHEV and the Renault Captur E-TECH Plug-in) and just below larger mid-sized models (like the Ford Kuga PHEV and the Volkswagen Tiguan e-Hybrid). Avoid entry-trim. You get a contrast-coloured roof too. Inside, changes have been made with the adoption of Vauxhall's latest Pure Panel cockpit with two widescreen displays for more of a digital experience. Ahead of the driver is a display up to 12-inches in size, offering up essential information, while the central 10-inch display controls all infotainment via a touchscreen. As before, driver and passengers benefit from the elevated seating position typical of an SUV, which ensures good visibility in all situations. And this model's relatively long wheelbase provides decent space for up to five people. While the luggage compartment is rated at 390-litres, as before 124-litres less than you'd get with a conventionally-powered model. It's 1,528-litres with the rear bench folded.

Market and Model

There's quite a premium to pay if you want plug-in hybrid capability for your Grandland. Prices start from around £34,500 with base 'SRi' trim - or around £35,000 with plusher 'Elite'-spec. And that's where the range stops because there's no longer a higher-powered 4WD version available. If you're comparing against an equivalent petrol or diesel model of the conventional sort, you'll find that this Hybrid derivative attracts a premium of around £5,000. You're going to need to budget £500 (inc. VAT) more for the optional 6.6kW on-board charger because it halves the battery replenishment time when charging with a 7kW wallbox. 'SRi' variants offer 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels with dark-tinted side windows and come with a 12-inch Pure Panel driver display with 10-inch central touchscreen. Also included is a 180-degree rear-view camera, a high gloss black colour-coded roof, roof rails, wheel arch cladding, skid plates and a heated steering wheel. 'Elite' variants introduce 19-inch Bi-Colour alloy wheels and additional technology, like LED Matrix automatic front lighting, wireless phone charging, advanced park assist, side blind spot alert, keyless entry and a power tailgate.

Cost of Ownership

Let's get to the figures. We've covered the 34 mile WLTP-rated all-electric driving range; it's actually more like around 25 miles in real-world use. And we also ought to apply real-world thinking to projections of likely fuel economy because the fantasy-land official combined WLTP figure (up to 192mpg) clearly isn't likely to be replicated by the average owner. As a feather-foot, we suppose 80-90mpg might theoretically be possible but your realistic average is going to be much less than that - and certainly less than you'd get from the equivalent diesel model. Rely on the petrol engine alone and you'd struggle to average 35mpg. The WLTP CO2 return (29g/km for 'SRi' trim or 31g/km for 'Elite'-spec with its larger wheels) will mean attractively low BiK figures based around a 20% rating. The insurance group is 24E. Charging the 13.2kWh battery takes three hours with a standard Mode 3 cable - or 1 hour 45 minutes if the optional on-board charger has been fitted (which really ought to be standard). You'll need 8 hours to charge from a domestic socket. The battery is covered (up to 70% capacity) by its own 8 year / 100,000 mile warranty. The car itself gets the usual unremarkable three year / 60,000 mile Vauxhall cover.
