The 4.28-meter long Opel Mokka, boasting a new design and advanced infotainment systems, will have its world premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show that starts on March 3. Over 500,000 orders have already been made since the model was launched in 2012, making it one of the most sought-after models.
2016 Opel Mokka X is expected to build on this momentum. With a redesigned exterior and interior and with the addition of high-tech infotainment systems, the new Mokka is sure to attract attention as it starts to roll out in the market this fall.
Aside from the newly-released generation 1.6 "whisper diesels", the Opel Mokla X will also be available with a new 1.4-liter Direct Injection Turbo with an automatic transmission. Furthermore, the latter will feature an all-wheel drive and Start/Stop technology.
The vehicle symbolizes the successful comeback of Opel in one way or another. Because of its natural charms, this sub-compact SUV will appeal to people who love a stylish and adventurous SUV. Moreover, the new Opel Mokka X will serve as the first model to bear the segment identifier for all upcoming Opel SUVs and crossovers.
The "X" emphasizes a bolder and more adventurous attitude compared to traditional styling. The revamped front of the Mokka X demonstrates just the right shade of boldness. The new design includes a wing-shaped horizontal grille and the sharp double-wing signature of the LED daytime running lights.
The front fascia, continued at the rear with a double-wing signature, has been enhanced with lesser plastic inserts, giving the new Mokka a wider and more masculine look. Moreover, it has tail lamps that can optionally come with LED.
On the other hand, its body maintains the sculpted and sporty edge that demonstrates athletic lower body lines, energized by the standard blade that sweeps upwards to the rear. New colors such as Amber Orange and Absolute Red also add to the overall appeal and characteristics of the vehicle.
The interior of the Mokka X has also been enhanced thoroughly. The dashboard was inspired by the new Astra. The instrument panel boasts some horizonally-shaped elements, which lends a simpler look and sharper execution. Meanwhile, the center stack has been redefined with the 7 and 8-inch touchscreen features of the new and innovative infotainment systems, making it more elegant with fewer buttons.
Most Connected and Comfortable SUV
Mokka X, like the new Opel Astra, is equipped with OnStar offerings. Additionally, two versions of the IntelliLink infotainment system's new generation will make their debut in the sub-compact SUV. IntelliLink has adapted the new smartphone technology with the Apple CarPlay and the Android Auto.
Aside from being totally connected, the Mokka X also takes pride in offering the best comfort to all users. It features the AGR-tested and certified seats, which make long drives more enjoyable. Moreover, the new Mokka X' new features such as Keyless Open and Start promises to deliver better.
With these features, there is no need to actively press the car key button to open and lock the vehicle. The driver can just press the small button on any handle to enable and disable access to passengers without having to get the keys out of the pocket.
The ignition is also keyless, making it more convenient. With its integrated features and off-road capabilities, the Mokka X is indeed a continuing legacy of its predecessors, which bagged two All-Wheel Drive Car of the Year awards and two Company Car of the Year awards in Germany.
