Vauxhall MokkaHot 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 design of the Mokka features stunning proportions and captivating precision with bold looks 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 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.
