Vauxhall (Opel) Grandland Engine Oil Finder

Vauxhall now has three models in the compact SUV segment, which is still booming: in addition to the Mokka and the Crossland, the biggest of the three brothers has now also been given the new brand face called "Vizor" via a facelift. The name is intended to refer to the visor of a motorcycle helmet and symbolize sporty dynamics.

In 2017, the Vauxhall (Opel) Grandland X took the stage for the first time, just in time for the boom in popularity of this vehicle class. The Grandland (and the Grandland X before it) shares a common platform (“EMP2”) with the Peugeot 3008, the Citroen C5 Aircross and the DS7 Crossback from Stellantis.

In the course of the current facelift, the Grandland has now lost the "X" in its name, but has gained a few technical highlights and improvements. The fully digital cockpit with widescreen is modern, tidy and clear and, thanks to a few knobs that have been preserved, can also be operated intuitively. In contrast to its smaller brothers Mokka and Crossland, the Grandland is the first to have an interesting innovation in terms of light: An infrared camera uses body heat to detect animals and people up to 100 meters in front of the car and warns the driver of these dangers in the dark. The intelligent matrix light should also glare out rain-soaked roads in the dark. Since 2019, the Grandland - at that time still with X - is now also available as a plug-in hybrid, even with an optional electric all-wheel drive ("Hybrid4").

The Opel Grandland is available with petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid engines. There is a choice of a 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with 96 kW/130 hp with either a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic, a 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel with an 8-speed automatic and also 96 kW /130 hp and the two plug-in hybrids with 165 kW/224 hp system output (front-wheel drive only) or as "Hybrid4" with 221 kW/300 hp system output and electric all-wheel drive.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Vauxhall Grandland's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Vauxhall Grandland engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Vauxhall Grandland? Whether you are topping up your Vauxhall Grandland oil or doing a full change of your Vauxhall Grandland's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.

We have listed all the Vauxhall Grandland models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for your Vauxhall Grandland.

Vauxhall Grandland Competitors
In the Opel / Vauxhall model range, the Grandland takes its place as the SUV flagship alongside the smaller Mokka and Crossland. Technically it is ahead of the Opel Crossland with the plug-in hybrid version, but as an electric car the Mokka-e overtakes it. When it comes to space and looks, the new Grandland can be compared to its sister model, the Peugeot 3008, with which it shares the construction platform and engine technology. In addition, the Grandland competes against the more spacious top dog VW Tiguan and against the related Skoda Karoq and Seat Ateca. The classic trio offers a larger selection of engines, but looks more conventional and has to give way to the Grandland in the design comparison.
