The Opel Mokka is a unique Opel that conveys a powerful stance on and off the road. The Mokka has a rugged sense of style exuding confidance which helps to show off the elegantly sculpted sides, the rear styling and the 18” alloy wheels. From the front the distinctive grille, wrap-around headlights, lower trim and steeply raked windscreen show off the Mokka’s design philosophy. The athletic, sporty appearance is continued with the generous height and width of the doors. The short overhangs and business-like wheel arches give you an indication of the Opel Mokka’s rugged capabilities. The Mokka diplays the Opel Blitz emblem proudly, packing the style of a full sized SUV in a compact sporty drive.
Our Opel Mokka
The Opel Mokka has a strong and aggressive stance presented in a compact package designed to be a perfect match to your lifestyle while offering a quality alternative to those who live urban lifestyles and appreciate the high seating position, extra space, versatility and go-anywhere nature of the German-engineered SUV.
The Opel Mokka has a distinctive grille and wrap-around integration of the headlight clusters with a deep raked windscreen highlighting the aerodynamic development. Everything has a purpose, including the well-rounded shape of the exterior mirrors where form meets function. The aero-friendly radiator grille optimises airflow in the engine compartment. Under-body aerodynamic aids complement the rear spoiler in cleaning up airflow. The whole package combines to deliver a Cd factor of just 0.35 – better than the segment average of 0.378 and a major contributor to both economy and stability.
The Opel Mokka carries the Opel logo high and proudly, the horizontal chrome grille bar adding a high-quality, sculptured aspect which neatly divides the upper and lower proportions. This broad-shouldered and wide-tracked appeal immediately underlines the sense of rugged capability that characterises the entire vehicle. From the side, the sculpted proportions of the new Opel Mokka are grounded on the sill and wheel arch mouldings, outlined by ultra-short overhangs and smart wheel arch contours. The large, purpose-designed alloy wheels round off the design.
The signature Opel ‘wing’ motif adds a further element in a sculptured, contoured effect, starting low and gradually rising to draw attention to the width and height of the vehicle. An upswept waistline, relatively narrow glasshouse and tall haunches, the result is sporting flair and ruggedness. This ruggedness has also been translated into meticulous attention to detail, with elements like the door handles and roof rails being carefully refined to reflect a chunky look and feel. A pert rear end, visually strengthened by a tough bumper design, wrap-around tail light clusters and a slim rear window design, rounds off the stance.
Inside the Opel Mokka there is an emphasis on quality and comfort. The cabin is airy and welcoming, giving the impression that Mokka is much larger than it actually is. The high-mounted, supportive seats, comfortably-placed controls and premium feel of the trim all add to this feeling of space. Tactile black trim materials with chrome detailing for the functional elements and instrument rings add a classic upmarket accent. The design is friendly and understatedly modern, with a swept-around ‘wing’ style dashboard maximising the feel and allocation of space while being visually superior.
Instruments and screens are clear, well-proportioned, optimally-placed and easy to read. The large air vents, like every other detail, have a solid look and feel of durability that reinforces the up-market sensation. The impression is of an environment which is ready for adventure. The refined detail and high quality of the cabin extends throughout – the deeply-contoured seats, which can be easily folded to adjust storage solutions within Mokka, are an example of this.
Wide-opening doors offer easy access for adults as well as children. They are especially suitable in facilitating the fitment of child seats.
Load space and storage combine perfectly to maximise the convenience and practicality of the Opel Mokka. With the 60/40 flip-and-fold rear seats fully folded, a flat floor is made available and ready to swallow up to 1 371 litres of cargo, with a total length of 1 449 mm and up to 898 mm of height. With the seats up, a generous 356 litres of boot space is available. A 16-inch spare wheel lies below the rear cargo floor.
Powering all Mokka derivatives is Opel’s proven 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbocharged ECOTEC petrol engine, which produces 103 kW between 4 900 and 6 000 rpm and 200 Nm between 1 850 and 4 900 rpm. Naturally contributing to a beautifully smooth drive and good economy, the Mokka’s engine also affords it the impressive ability to tow up to 1 200 kg (braked) or 500 kg (unbraked).
Zero to 100 km/h is reached in 9.8 seconds with a top speed of 196 km/h for the 6-speed manual models. For the two models equipped with the 6-speed automatic transmission, the 0-100 km/h sprint is achieved in 10.7 seconds and they carry a top speed of 191 km/h. Average fuel economy on the new Mokka 1.4T Enjoy manual is 6.0-litres per 100 km, the Mokka 1.4T Enjoy automatic realising 6.6-litres per 100 km on the combined cycle. The Mokka 1.4T Cosmo manual sips 6.3-litres per 100 km, with the Mokka 1.4T Cosmo automatic returning a combined cycle average figure of 7.0-litres per 100 km.
Carbon emissions are rated at 139 g/km for the Mokka 1.4T Enjoy manual and 154 g/km for the Mokka 1.4T Enjoy automatic. The Mokka 1.4T Cosmo manual is rated at 145 g/km with the Cosmo automatic at 160 g/km. Driving the front wheels in all models, transmissions include a slick six-speed manual or a smooth six-speed automatic – each of which is available at either Enjoy or Cosmo trim level. The all-new Hydra-Matic six-speed automatic transmission features an on-axis design which allows for more compact packaging, allowing enhanced crumple zone performance, increased interior space and a lower bonnet line than possible with a conventional off-axis design.
On the road, a wide selection of shift patterns is adapted to the style and habits of the driver, anticipating when maximum acceleration or maximum efficiency is required. The electronic control will also adapt to the prevailing road conditions, reducing gear shifting when climbing or descending and using engine braking assistance during down-changes. Tap shifting allows for sequential gear selection via the shift lever. The driver also benefits from a ‘neutral’ gear disengagement at idle, which reduces vibration and contributes to improved fuel consumption.
ecoFLEX Drive Assist not only indicates optimal gear shift points for the driver, it also indicates which systems within the vehicle are using the most energy in conjunction with a fuel economy meter. Linked to an economy index – with a 50 km history graph – and the start/stop system fitted to manual models, Mokka ensures the driver is always informed as to how fuel can be saved.
In keeping with Opel’s focus on safety, the Mokka is kitted out with an array of safety features and equipment designed to protect occupants and pedestrians. Opel SAFETEC is a fully-comprehensive safety system which integrates and synchronises all aspects of active and passive safety for maximum security in any situation. Every Opel vehicle begins with a rigid safety frame, to which energy-absorbent bumper systems with crash boxes front and rear, progressively deformable structures and high-tensile steel side protection bars, are added. The design and structure of these elements also means that the Opel Mokka meets all pedestrian safety standards.
Importantly, the Opel Mokka carries a five-star EuroNCAP safety rating.
A major advantage of Opel technology is that in low-speed impacts, deformation damage is minimised to reduce repair costs. For example, the bumpers are self-repairing after impacts of under 4 km/h. Other passive safety systems include smart seat-belt reminders front and rear, dual pre-tensioned front seat belts, and front, side and curtain airbags (six in total). In addition the Pedal Release System protects against lower-leg and foot injuries in major impacts. ISOFIX child seat anchors are also fitted.
All versions of the Opel Mokka are equipped with latest-generation ESPPlus. Oversteer or understeer is corrected with even greater efficiency and sensitivity than with previous systems – ESPPlus is almost undetectable in operation. Hill Start Assist (HSA) is also fitted as standard.
Naturally, ABS with EBD and BAS liked to all-round disc brakes are fitted as standard, along with a tyre pressure monitor, an anti-theft alarm and immobiliser, and remote central locking.
A rear-view camera is available on Cosmo models only, linked to front and rear parking sensors. With a 130-degree view, dynamic parking assistance lines shown in the infotainment screen indicate the vehicle’s trajectory according to steering input, allowing for perfect parking every time. The cruise control and speed limiter, while ultimately providing for comfort on longer journeys or around town, play a safety role as well. Easily overridden by fully-depressing the accelerator pedal, the speed limiter, which is available from speeds above 25 km/h, is especially ideal for avoiding costly speeding fines.
Forming the base of the Mokka range is the Opel Mokka Enjoy 1.4T manual and automatic models. Standard equipment includes start/stop technology and the ecoFLEX Drive Assist system (manual only), front and rear fog lights, the tyre pressure monitoring system, daytime running lights, cruise control with speed limiter, speed-sensitive power steering, a multi-function steering wheel, a six-speaker audio system with Bluetooth, aux and USB input, a driver’s armrest, electronic climate control, a trip computer, a solar-absorbing windscreen, colour-coded door handles, electric and heated side mirrors, power windows with one-touch up and down all-round, a folding key, 17-inch alloy wheels with a full-size steel spare and LINE DRIVE black cloth upholstery.
IntelliLink is the only available option.
The Mokka Cosmo 1.4T manual and automatic derivatives sport rain-sensing wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, automatic headlights with Active High Beam Assist, front and rear parking sensors, electric folding mirrors, a sunglasses holder, IntelliLink, the reversing camera, heated front seats, interior ambient lighting, rear privacy glass, 18-inch alloys, JASMIN leather upholstery, a heated, leather-bound steering wheel, specialised ergonomic front seats, a rear arm rest and a 230V power socket (ideal for charging phones or laptops) – all as standard.
All four models are available in a choice of ten colours which include Blaze Red, Orange Rock, Boracay Blue and Deep Espresso Brown.
The Opel Mokka derivatives are backed by Opel’s comprehensive 5-year/ 120 000 km warranty and come with a 5-year/ 90 000 km service plan linked to service intervals of 15 000 km.
