Review
Love this car after 1km drive.. Especially the dancing light when starting the car.. It is so cool .. The adaptive auto light make drive in dark area a real advantage.. It is really cool ! Https://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=owyhVex_2Bc

other feature like handfree auto tailgate ( good for my wife getting groceries , anti head collusion , auto parking featues.. Well i use to think i dont need all this kind of feature, why i need to get it.. But after i got it.. I feel cool.. After all we are paying the highest car price on earth.. Why not maximise it !

What I like
adaptive lighting , hand free auto tailgate ,antii headon collusion
unique , sleek design on same peugoet 3008 platform.
widest SUV in this mid cat series , High OMV , 19" sport rim , memory seat , ventilated seat useful during hot days , seat extension for thight support.

What I do not like
no adaptive cruise control which present in Insigma. AC not as cold , maybe due to indoor size compare to saloon. need adjust below 20C to be cold.. knob level adjustment for passenger seat . lack of space to put junk stuff..

Review
First time owning a continental. Had the Grandland X for almost a year. When it was first launch in March 2018, I have already been looking for a replacement for my Japanese MPV. Those were the days where SUV are the in-thing especially conti ones.

Narrowed down to the Pug 3008 and the Grandland X. Both using the same platform under PSA group literally with the same engine and gearbox. I choose the Grandland X over the Pug 3008. Test drove twice with the second time with wife and kid behind. Did u-turn and high speed cornering without much rolling that causes uncomfortable feeling to my passengers. Had been looking for a new car having in mind that I need traditional torque converter. Had bad experience with CVT. Still can't accept the 7-speed DSG. Ended up with this beautiful features packed German SUV.

Buying experience was a breeze. With much car buying experience, it is important to know and consider selling price, COE level and VES rebates/surcharge of the car. When i bought the car in May 2018, it came with a VES banding of neutral. 4 bids guaranteed COE but I got it on the first one. Car delivered in 2 weeks from the day I booked. Smooth transaction and experience with the SE was great!

What I like
- Punchy 1.2L Turbo pertrol. Pickup was more than adequate with 230NM of torque. Although it has only 130 horses, it is more than enough to drive on SG expressways. You don't need a 400bhp car unless you are in Europe.
- Packed with safety features such as autonomous emergency brake, lane keep assist and lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, auto park assist, cruise control, 360 all round reverse camera, AFL with cornering light and high-beam assist, 6 air-bags and many more.
- Convenience features such as ventilated seats (air-con and heater), driver electric memory AGR seats, 16-way lumbar support adjustment, heated steering wheel, rear air-con vents, spacious boot with electric tailgate, 8-inch infotainment with built-in GPS, 6 speakers which are surprisingly ok even though they are stock.
- High driving position, car is big and spacious especially the boot.
- 19" stock diamond cut rims. Big and nice. No need to change. CSC tires.
- Low road tax compared to 1.5L/1.6L NA.
- 5 years servicing and 5 years warranty.
- Rare on the road. No PHV would use this model. Lol

What I do not like
- No roof rails (Pug 3008 Allure has it). Even the Grandland X brochure has it for the European models unless sunroof was opt-in. But well it is just cosmetics that I can live without it although it really brings out the looks.
- No sunroof (Pug 3008 has it). But come to think of that, I do not need it. And even the car review videos advice to opt-out for hot climate countries. So I guess AG did the right thing.
- Lastly, the only gripe that I has was the autonomous follow-assist cruise control. It has the same hardware equipment as the Insignia but the function is not available for this premium innovation Grandland X. Even the brochure and SGCM car review mentioned it is optional. AG said to me it will not be available. The only model that has this function in SG is the Insignia.

Happen to drp by just for a walk then saw this car ! Spacious then Quashai , sporty look. Solid feel. Ref to spec .. FC 18km !! Wah.. Real bo !! High torque make it good for city driving. Tested drive the car and feel in love.. They zoom down to BMW and Harrier .. Different category.. But price very close !

the test drive ride is nice , feature line safety is good.. Side parking assist.. Well good to have but will need to test more on it.. Especially for new driver.. I find it parked abit outside from side kerb.. Only lack front collosion auto slow down !

Jigh OMV and lighter weight of this SUV hopefully can contribute to better FC. 19" Sport rim! Friece looking ..So far other come with only 17/18".. As it original.. So the arm shaft is cater for 19" Weight.. Unlike if we do self upgrade.. Some arm shaft may not able to take the load impact..!

What I like
solid feel of the car..
high torgue
high OMV
spacious compare to CRV and CHR , Vesel
auto leg tailgate sensor
lane detect
auto side parking assist

What I do not like
no loading compartment for front passenger
high price
