Vauxhall Mokka is a European 'bestseller'
The Vauxhall Mokka is a continuing success for Vauxhall as sales have doubled across Europe less than a year after the vehicle hit it's sales target of 100,000 units in April 2013. The Mokka currently sits at number two in the SUV-B segment with a market share of 17% despite having only arrived in showrooms 18 months ago.
The Vauxhall Mokka details
The SUV comes with a choice of three engines including a 1.7 litre turbodiesel and two or four wheel drive. Front wheel drive is standard and the four wheel drive versions have a system that automatically transfers drive to the rear wheels. A variety of state-of-the-art driver-assistance systems are available in the Mokka. At 4.28 metres long, the Mokka provides plenty of room for five occupants and a higher seating position, making it suitable for diverse daily needs.
The Vauxhall Mokka features the company's Vauxhall Front Camera that was first seen in the latest Insignia and also the new Zafira Tourer. It gives drivers access to Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition, Forward Collision Alert and a rear view camera which works with park-assist sensors on the front and rear.
Other features include Adaptive Forward Lighting AFL+, ergonomic seats and the second generation of the integrated FlexFix bicycle carrier, which are all features that the Mokka introduced into this SUV segment. The latest generation Flex-Fix bicycle carrier exclusive to the brand is integrated in the rear underbody functioning like a drawer and is capable of accommodating up to three bikes at the same time.
