well, it will be best seller Germany, by default of its badge(s)... though I doubt it will be much cheaper just because its interior is "less modern".... it might be cheaper because 99% of its interior is already used in two other Opel/Vauxhall (and even Buick) models....:







...I know I'm sarcastic prick but this kind of "imagination poverty" saddens me in when used in a single model (though I can tolerate it as a "matter of taste")... but, when it is copy/pasted trough entire range and size of models, it just irritates me! how the f*ck do you determine which model you're in.... by how claustrophobic its interior feels?!?

Technically, I think this would be well catered in the regular GRnadland X thread.

Otherwise, the technical data looks promising, we will have to see how good these first generation of proper plug in PSA Hybrids will be ( I know they had a 508 and C5 Hybrid, but that was a very different construction and dare I say a flop), but I really hope this will be successful, it deserves more success than the average solution on Germany for that price, a powerful Diesel with "sports package";

Generic looking yet there are fussy French styling touches...mildly odd.

I have to say the Grandland X looks surprisingly good in the flesh (without the bicolor exterior I want to add).
I am not sure about the differentiation between Peugeot/Citroen/Opel though, I have a feeling they are all speaking to the same market audience and DS isn't considered as a real premium brand either (yet).

I'd say visually at least the car are different, but at least Peugeot and Opel cater pretty much the identical market; The slightly quirkier and cheaper Citroens tend to attract a different crowd, though not that much . But probably still better than the VW - Skoda - seat separation, or Hyundai - Kia;

I'd also argue that the DS brand is not having a tough time to be seen as a premium brand, ID' say they have a tough time being recognized as a brand in most markets. At best as a posh trim level....
