Vauxhall is strengthening its Mokka range with a new front-wheel drive version of the popular street-size SUV. The new 1.4-litre Turbo (140PS) petrol is now available to order in front-wheel drive, after being only initially available as an all-wheel drive manual.
It will come with a six-speed manual transmission, or optional automatic, and Start/Stop technology. Fuel consumption comes in at 47.9mpg combined and the vehicle emits only 139g/km CO2. It accelerates from 0-62mph in 9.9 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 120mph.
On the inside the Vauxhall Mokka gains optional, state-of-the-art infotainment systems CD 600 and Navi 950. “Intuitive and easy-to-use, the new systems feature a high-resolution, seven-inch colour display, where the image from the optional rear camera is also displayed,” says the firm. Bluetooth connectivity for both mobile and audio streaming is also available.
For business travellers, the Mokka is equipped with some useful additions for long journeys. The Navi 950 comes standard with comprehensive Europe-wide mapping and can be updated by simple download via the USB port. Itspremium Bose sound system provides great audio quality with six loudspeakers, a subwoofer and digital amplifier.
The Mokka will also come in a new, bold Orange Rock metallic exterior paint colour and optional 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels.
“We are delighted to make the popular Mokka even more appealing with new powertrains and high-end infotainment units,” says Stuart Harris, head of Vauxhall’s Carline Brand.
For now, businesses can find car leasing deals on the Vauxhall Mokka Hatchback 1.6i SE 5dr. CO2 emissions are 153g/km, while the consumption is a healthy 43.5mpg. The 16valve, four-cylinder in-line engine delivers a top speed of 106 mph.
