High-tech and high efficiency: 1.5 diesel
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 62.8mpg to 65.7mpg and 114g/km to 117g/km CO2).
For optimum exhaust after-treatment, the diesel engine’s emissions reduction system – consisting of a passive oxidation catalyst/NOx adsorber, AdBlue injector, SCR catalyst and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) – is grouped together as a compact single unit, as close as possible to the engine. The NOx adsorber acts as a cold start catalyst, reducing NOx emissions during cold starts.
Fans of electric-mobility can order the Vauxhall Mokka-e as the Common Modular Platform (CMP) accommodates a variety of powertrains.
Leader in the segment: high-tech assistance systems and lighting technology
The all-new Mokka arrives in the B-segment with innovations that until recently have only been available in higher vehicle classes. Forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection operates at speeds above 3mph. If a vehicle or pedestrian ahead is approached too fast, the system sounds a warning chime and displays a message in the Driver Information Cluster. If a collision is imminent, the braking system is prepared and, if necessary, emergency braking is deployed to minimise the effects of a potential collision. Below 18mph the system can bring the vehicle to a complete stop. If the speed exceeds 18mph, speed is reduced and the driver must actively brake.
Adaptive cruise control maintains a certain distance between the new Mokka and the vehicle ahead, using radar and camera sensors. Operative from 18mph, the vehicle speed increases or decreases to follow the vehicle ahead, but will not exceed the set speed. With automatic transmission, the system offers additional stop and go functionality. It can brake the car to a standstill and follow the vehicle ahead in traffic jams.
Vauxhall is also a leader in lighting technology. All Mokka variants are equipped with latest generation LED lamps – from daytime running lights to front fog lights. An absolute highlight in this segment is the adaptive IntelliLux LED matrix lights with a total of 14 individual elements. As with the Vauxhall Insignia, Astra and the new Corsa, the lighting system enables driving on permanent high beam.
In order to prevent glare for drivers of oncoming or preceding vehicles, the individual LED elements are switched off in milliseconds to cut vehicles out of the light cone – so oncoming drivers are not dazzled, yet Mokka passengers experience stadium-like illumination. In the rear, the choice for LED-only technology has allowed designers to go for very thin, stretched lights enhancing the feeling of precision and quality.
Excellent seating engineering is typical of Vauxhall. Various six-way ergonomic seats are available in the new Mokka, which are individually adjustable. A sporty Alcantara and a classic full leather interior are both available – highly unusual for a vehicle in the B segment. The crowning glory is the heated leather seat with perforated surface and massage function for the driver.
The driver and front-seat passenger can place their smartphones in the storage tray provided in the centre console. Compatible telephones recharge here wirelessly, while the a specially shaped rubber mat prevents devices from sliding around. The new infotainment range perfectly networks and entertains Mokka drivers and passengers. Multimedia Radio and Multimedia Navi systems with a 7-inch colour touchscreen and the top-of-the-range system Multimedia Navi Pro with a high-resolution 10-inch colour touchscreen are available. The monitors are integral with the new Pure Panel from Vauxhall and ideally positioned towards the driver.
The multimedia systems feature integrated voice control and are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible. The new Mokka also offers the Vauxhall Connect service for customers. LIVE navigation with real-time traffic information, plus a direct link to breakdown assistance and eCall, makes journeys even more relaxing for drivers and passengers. If the airbags or seatbelt tensioners deploy in an accident, eCall contacts the local Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) automatically.
