Say hello to the second-generation, all-new Vauxhall Mokka. The British compact crossover has been completely overhauled, and for the first time there is a full electric Mokka-e variant on offer as well.
Built on the bones of the PSA Group’s Common Modular Platform (CMP), the new Mokka weighs up to 120 kg less compared to its predecessor, and torsional stiffness is up by 30%. Vauxhall says this makes the Mokka more agile and fun to drive.
In terms of dimensions, the crossover’s overall length is 4,150 mm, or about 125 mm shorter than before thanks to the reduced overhangs (-61 mm up front and -66 mm at the back). It’s also 10 mm wider and has a 2 mm longer wheelbase, whereas boot space remains unchanged from before at 350 litres.
The new Mokka will be offered with a number of petrol and diesel engines, but those have yet to be detailed – Vauxhall chose to highlight the Mokka-e instead. It gets a single electric motor that generates 136 hp (100 kW) and 260 Nm of torque, with electrical juice coming from a 50 kWh battery mounted beneath the floor.
