The exterior aside, if we venture inside again Grandland we will be enveloped by a technological and modern environment. The great novelty in this section is the appearance of the Opel Pure Panel system composed of two curved screens joined to create a single element. This allows creating a more digital cabin.

The 12-inch digital instrumentation shows, among other things, the image captured by the new Night Vision. Night vision allows people and animals to be detected up to 100 meters in front of the Grandland.

The list of driver assistance systems has been enriched with the Highway Integration Assist function available for models with automatic transmission. Adaptive cruise control is combined with lane-keeping.
Other equipments to highlight are the wireless charger for compatible mobile phones, the AGR-certified front seats, leather upholstery, heating and ventilation, and the electric opening and closing tailgate with hands-free function.
The engine range will retain the plug-in hybrid variants. One of the pillars on which the offer of the outgoing model is based.
