HOT on the heels of the new battery-electric Vauxhall Mokka-e, Vauxhall has revealed details of the advanced petrol and diesel engines that will power the all-new Mokka.

Highly efficient and more compact than ever, the all-new Mokka is the perfect combination of fun and modernity – ideal for urban trips and long motorway drives.

The new, bold design of the Mokka is characterised by short overhangs and a wide, well-planted stance. The newcomer also stands out as the first model that features the future brand face and next generation fully digital cockpit: the Vauxhall Vizor and Pure Panel, respectively.

The horizontally stretched instrument panel integrates two widescreen displays; the one in front of the driver measuring up to 12 inches. The intuitive system is designed to keep the driver’s focus on the road and Vauxhall’s designers have retained separate controls for essential functions, avoiding hazardous exploration into sub-menus.

Despite a slightly longer wheelbase (+2.0 mm), the Mokka is 12.5 cm shorter than the previous model, while offering its five passengers a similar loading space of up to 350 litres in its luggage compartment. Its total length of only 4.15 metres makes it super-easy to manoeuvre and park in urban and suburban areas.

With the SRi trim, Vauxhall is, for the first time, offering a sportier version of the Mokka. SRi models come standard with a red signature daylight opening, a high-gloss black Vizor chrome exterior trim elements and badges, specific front seat fabric and red instrument panel trim. Also standard are 18-inch alloy wheels with black and red accents, a two-tone roof and black headliner.

The Mokka stays true to Vauxhall’s brand-defining tradition of making innovative technologies from higher vehicle classes available to a wide range of buyers. These include Advanced Driver Assist Systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Active Lane Positioning Assistant. The lighting system also features state-of-the-art technologies with the adaptive and glare-free IntelliLux LED matrix light featuring 14 elements, unique in the category. All Mokka models feature standard LED lamps at the front and rear, an electric parking brake as well as traffic sign recognition. A 180-degree panoramic rear-view camera is also available.

The lively yet economical petrol and diesel engines offer power outputs ranging from 100hp to 130hp.

The fun starts with the entry-level 100hp 1.2 Turbo combined with a six-speed manual gearbox (preliminary fuel consumption WLTP 51.4mpg and 124g/km to 128g/km CO2).

Higher performance is supplied by the 130hp 1.2 Turbo. Despite the strong power output, fuel consumption of the all-aluminium engine remains competitive with either of the six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmissions (preliminary fuel consumption WLTP 51.4mpg and 123g/km to 126g/km CO2).

The driving performance matches the high efficiency of the engines. The Mokka 130hp 1.2 Turbo with six-speed manual transmission has a maximum speed of 125mph, with 0-62mph acceleration taking 9.2 seconds. The 100hp model has a top speed of 113mph and accelerates from 0-62mph in around 11 seconds.

The 100hp entry-level engine is fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. With the 130hp 1.2, customers can choose from a six-speed manual or a smooth eight-speed automatic. The automatic features state-of-the-art adaptive shift programmes and Quickshift-technology, allowing drivers to control gear selection via the standard steering wheel shift paddles.

The two petrol engines are joined by a lively 1.5-litre diesel with six-speed manual transmission, producing 110hp and maximum torque of 250Nm (preliminary fuel consumption WLTP 65.7mpg and 114g/km to 117g/km CO2).

Pricing and final UK spec will be announced shortly.
