There's quite a premium to pay if you want plug-in hybrid capability for your Grandland X. If you're happy to stick with the front-driven Grandland X Hybrid, there's a choice of 'Business Edition Nav', 'SE Nav' and 'SRi Nav' trim levels, with prices that from launch started at just over £32,000. To give you some price perspective, a top Grandland X Hybrid SRi Nav model at £38,500 costs over £7,000 more than a directly comparable 1.5-litre Turbo D 130PS automatic diesel variant with equivalent 'SRi Nav' trim.
You'll need more of course for the AWD Grandland X Hybrid4. The range here is spread across 'Business Edition Nav Premium', 'SRi Nav', 'Elite Nav' and 'Ultimate Nav' variants, with pricing starting up at around £37,000 and rising to around £47,000. Still, at last you get a lot of kit for your cash. All Grandland X Hybrid and Hybrid4 variants get LED headlights, roof rails, front fog lamps, alloy wheels of at least 18-inches in size, keyless entry, high beam assist and cruise control. Inside, standard across the range is an 8-inch Intellilink infotainment screen with voice control and smartphone projection. Plus dual-zone climate control, a wireless charging mat and a powered tailgate.
