What is it?
The Mokka is a compact crossover available in a single five-door body style. It’s offered with a choice of four engines and four trim levels. Automatic and four-wheel drive options are also available. There’s been one generation of Mokka, the current model introduced in 2013.
What is the Vauxhall Mokka like to drive?
Like most crossovers, the Mokka combines the high seating position of a four-wheel drive with the convenience of a hatchback. The Mokka is unusual for actually offering four-wheel drive on some models, although most versions are more economical two-wheel drives. The high seating position and light controls make the Mokka easy to drive, while its interior design makes it pleasant to sit in. The entry-level 1.6i is adequately brisk, while the 1.4i turbo performs quite strongly. The new 1.6 CDTi ‘whisper diesel’ is considerably more refined than the older 1.7 CDTi engine, but both deliver a good mix of economy and cruising ability. Despite its height the Mokka corners with little body roll, its handling safe and predictable. The ride is firm and the suspension adequately quiet on most road surfaces.
What engines are available?
There are two petrol engines and two diesels. The petrol range includes a 115hp 1.6 and a 140hp 1.4i turbo. Diesels include a 130hp 1.7 CDTi and a 136hp 1.6 CDTi ‘whisper diesel’. The 1.6i comes with five-speed gearboxes; all other engines come with a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic. You can also have four-wheel drive with the two diesels and the 1.4i turbo, but not with automatic transmission.
