Opel has been spotted testing an updated version of the Crossland X, and at first glance, it seems like the subcompact crossover could get more than just a revised exterior.

You don’t need to be an expert to notice the closed grille, but this is not the only design change in the updated Crossland X. The crossover also has a new front bumper with redesigned “folds” for the fog lights and two wide air intakes. The headlights and taillights appear to have remained with the same shape and graphics, despite the partially hidden tailgate and side panels. However, this is an early prototype and may still change.

It is unlikely that the Crossland X will get an all-electric variant, because the new generation Opel Mokka-e already covers this segment. Another reason we won’t be seeing the Crossland X EV is that its PF1 platform doesn’t support electrification. However, more eco-friendly engines and minor interior changes are expected in the lineup.

The 2021 Crossland X’s closed grille is purely for aesthetic reasons, namely to tie the subcompact crossover design to the styling of the all-new Mokka. Opel and Vauxhall have already announced that all future models will receive the new Vizor front fascia that debuted at the 2021 Mokka, and it looks like the Crossland X will be no different.
