Vauxhall has confirmed it will build a third SUV alongside its Mokka X and recently announced Crossland X models.
Called the Grandland X, the new model is set to go on sale next year, and could replace the firm's Zafira MPV, which has recently been plagued with units catching on fire. It is likely to rival vehicles such as Skoda's Kodiaq crossover.
Vauxhall expects the Grandland X and Crossland X to generate more sales for the brand due to an increased appetite for crossovers.
"We now have a compelling trio of new models for 2017 that are bang on target for a sector that has seen more growth recently than almost any other in the UK," said Rory Harvey, Vauxhall's chairman and managing director.
"The range now covers all bases, from an all-wheel-drive SUV [the Grandland X] to a choice of two highly practical and stylish crossovers, [the Crossland X and Mokka X] with different levels of space and equipment. Both the crossovers are incremental to Vauxhall's existing range, so along with the new Insignia, 2017 is shaping up to be one of our busiest years ever for new product," he added.
