VAUXHALL'S new rival to small crossovers like the Peugeot 2008 and Renault Captur arrives in showrooms this summer, with prices starting at £16,555.

The Crossland X sits alongside the Mokka X and the upcoming, larger Grandland X in Vauxhall's burgeoning crossover and SUV range.

Vauxhall says the Crossland X has a "Tardis-like" cabin and notable practicality and flexibility.

It is shorter than a Mokka X and 16cm shorter than an Astra hatchback, but is 10cm higher than the Astra thanks to its elevated driving position.

A full range of up-to-date safety assist kit is available as is a traditionally wide choice of petrol and diesel engines.

Four petrols, each of 1.2-litre capacity, can be ordered and there are three flavours of 1.6-litre diesel.

The cheapest model, at £16,555, is the 1.2i SE with a five-speed manual gearbox. The most expensive is the six-speed 1.6CDTi Elite Nav, which starts at £21,380.
