Article by Anita Panait, on June 4, 2013

A consumer interested in Vauxhall Mokka could now avail of a front-wheel drive variant of the crossover powered by a new 1.4-litre 140PS Turbo petrol engine that was previously only available in all-wheel drive manuals. Featuring a six-speed manual transmission (with automatic gearbox also available) and Start/Stop, this Vauxhall Mokka variant could travel up to 47.9 miles on a gallon of petrol and emit only 139 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometers traveled.

The new Mokka variant could accelerate from zero to 62mph in 9.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 120mph. The interior of this new Mokka variant could be laden with optional, sophisticated infotainment systems CD 600 and Navi 950.

CD 600 and Navi 950 infotainment systems feature a high-resolution 7-inch color display, where images from an optional rear camera could be viewed.

The systems also both feature Bluetooth connectivity for both mobile and audio streaming. The Navi 950 comes standard with a far-ranging Europe-wide mapping that can be updated by simple download via the USB port.

Its premium Bose sound system delivers very clear and excellent audio with six loudspeakers, a subwoofer and digital amplifier.

New Mokka variant could be availed in the new and enticing Orange Rock metallic exterior paint color and optional 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels. Interested buyers could acquire this latest variant of the Vauxhall Mokka at a starting price of £16,719 on-the-road.

Strong and daring, the exterior of the Vauxhall Mokka is both muscular and solid. These are then matched with design cues that are truly unique to the brand. On the rear section, there is a skid plate finished in polished aluminum. The tail lights have a unique shape and this is combined with the roof spoiler and the rear window. That it has a coupé-like roofline is highlighted by the rack panels of the roof.

As an option, Vauxhall is offering the fully-integrated bike carrier FlexFix system that, when not in use, can be stored on the bumper in the rear. This feature is considered as unique especially for its segment. Meanwhile the front end shows that the grille has been made more prominent.

The front is also where the signature chrome bar is positioned where the center reveals the Vauxhall Griffin logo. This is then bordered by the “eagle eye” bi-xenon headlights that make use of LED daytime running lights. The brand said that this particular feature will be included as standard for the SE variant. Both the wheel arches and the bumper have protective cladding on them and this is set against the body side’s well-known “blade” light catcher.

It then sweeps upward to the model’s rear section. For the upper trim levels, some of the premium touches include the chrome window inserts and the body side. A wide range of ten paint variants will be offered for the exterior which will have brilliant, solid, metallic, and three-coat premium colors.

One example of the brilliant color is Summit White. Selection for solid colors include Royal Blue. Metallic color has a wider range with Borocay Blue, Carbon Flash, Deep Espresso Brown, Misty Lake, Satin Steel Grey, Sovereign Silver, and Velvet Red. Finally, the three-coat color is known as Snowflake White.
