IT'S five years since Opel debuted its Mokka compact crossover, five years in which sales of that bodystyle have soared. With so much competition out there now, it's hardly a surprise that if you want to beat them, you have to join them, so Opel has added another two crossovers to its roster, the first of which is this Crossland X; the other, the Grandland X, based on the Peugeot 3008 now that the French giant owns the German one, is due shortly and, from a first look at the Frankfurt Motor Show, also is a better looker.
