Vauxhall have just announced the Vauxhall Grandland X - based on the Peugeot 3008 it looks like the Antara is being replaced.

I hope Vx have a word about the interior... the row of switches under the touchscreen look terrible. As for the new design idea of sticking the screen on the top of the dashboard, no, just NO. Looks bad in Audi, Merc and whoever else is following that stupid trend. Get it integrated, likes it's part of the car, not an afterthought.

Have a feeling the Grandland will be based on the 5008, with the Crossland being the 3008 variant. If not, there won't be much difference in size between those 2 and the Mokka. And just to make sure I won't want one... it has a space saver.

Not a great review, but, you get to see the car and it is in English.

Seems a very US-type name, not keen.

Just read the 3008 brochure.. full sized spare is an option on all models. However, a kerbweight under 1300kg, not much use for towing a caravan. The Grandland better be based on the 5008!

Not very good for towing

Kerb weights are a lot lower than the Antara

Hi Jon, the reason Sat Nav screens are sat on the dash & not in it is because of safety ,by placing them at around eye line means you can see the screen guiding you whilst still having a good view of the road ahead . Just look at the Antara one & see that you have to take your eye off the road to see what's going on & that is dangerous . Also Sat nav size is important & would have to be compromised if placed in the dash.Edited by: live wire

Some of those floating sat nav screens do fold down into the dash when you want too.

Whilst having the sat nav at as high a position as possible, without impeding visibility, is obviously a good thing, there are some cars that manage that without it floating around like an afterthought. Take a look at a Hyundai Santa Fe, the 8 inch screen is fairly high, but, is integrated, same in the Ford Edge. Having owned a SE Nav for 4 years, I know the pain of the inspired positioning of the Antara screen!
