Stellantis has quietly introduced a new flagship variant to the Opel Crossland line-up, with largely exterior tweaks and more specification items.

Positioned above the Elegance that topped the range until now, the new GS Line, as evident by its name, receives a sportier external appearance made-up of model specific 17-inch gloss black alloy wheels, black and red accents around the windows, roof rails, and black mirror caps.

Inside, full leather upholstery features, along with manually height adjustable front seats, the auto-levelling Matrix IntelliLux LED headlights, heated front seats, a rear armrest, heated steering wheel, keyless entry and push-button start.

Underneath the bonnet, the PSA-era 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged PureTech petrol engine remains unchanged with its 81kW/205Nm going to the front wheels by means of a six-speed automatic gearbox. Claimed fuel consumption is 6.2 L/100 km.

Pricing

As with the rest of the Opel Crossland range, the GS Line’s sticker price includes a three year/120 000 km warranty as well as a three year/60 000 km service plan.
