The Aviva stadium, the home of Opel car partner the Ireland Rugby team, saw the launch of the highly anticipated Opel Grandland. Elegantly sporty and proudly displaying the new signature Opel Vizor brand face,the Opel Grandland is host to a stunning new Pure Panel cockpit and class-leading technology and comfort features. With safety a clear priority, the new Opel SUV flagship boasts adaptive IntelliLux LED® Pixel Lights as standard across the three-trim range. Designed and produced in Germany, and available in petrol and diesel from launch, the plug-in electric hybrid arrives in early summer.
James Brooks, Managing Director at Leeson Motors, Opel Importer in Ireland, said: “The striking new Grandland sports a fresh new exterior look, a high-tech interior, a range of highly efficient powertrains and incredible levels of standard safety and comfort equipment. It is sure to appeal to our existing and new conquest customers alike. We look forward to market growth in 2022 in the all-important C-SUV segment.”
