16:41 Tuesday 01 Aug 2017

Vauxhall are promising that their new Grandland X, which is to debut at September’s Frankfurt International Motor Show, will set new standards for safety systems.

The new SUV will be the first Vauxhall to include Driver Drowsiness Alert, a system which triggers audio and visual warnings in the event the vehicle veers unexpectedly, increasing in tone after three consecutive activations.

Driver Drowsiness Alert forms part of an impressive portfolio of safety assistance features, which also includes Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking and pedestrian detection, Advanced Park Assist and Automatic Cruise Control.

“Driving while tired poses a risk not just for the drivers but for all road users,” said Ian Mitchell, Grandland X’s Product Manager. “The Driver Drowsiness Alert system in the Grandland X can detect the typical signals of fatigue so it can remind drivers to take regular breaks during long journeys, helping to prevent an accident.”

Optional AFL LED headlamps will be available, designed to produce a bright white light that automatically adapts to the driving situation. The Grandland X will also feature Vauxhall OnStar, the personal connectivity and service assistant that offers services including Stolen Vehicle Assistance, Wi-Fi hotspot, and help drivers find a carpark or book a hotel room by automatically updating the vehicle’s navigation system.

The Grandland X will be priced from £22,310 on-the-road.
