Auto Trader reveal their thoughts on the exciting new Vauxhall Mokka X

“With its chunky style and 21st-century connectivity, the Mokka X might be just the thing to tempt you away from a Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008 or Renault Captur,” says Auto Trader.

“The Mokka X looks rather more rugged than some of its rivals, with plenty of 4x4-style plastic mouldings on the body. Every model comes with alloy wheels, skid plates and roof rails, and the door mirrors and door handles are finished in body colour. Step up to the top Elite trim, and you also get chrome-effect trim on the side windows, alloy-effect door sill covers, and tinted rear windows.”

Inside, the cabin is “solidly built”, and the fact that every model gets a colour touch-screen at the top of the dashboard to control the infotainment system is a “nice touch”. The high-driving position “gives an excellent view to the front, and there’s plenty of room, even for a six-foot driver”.

The Mokka X is “certainly one of the more spacious cars of its type”. The boot is “good” with a “usefully practical shape”.

On the road, the Mokka X’s “natural hunting ground is the urban jungle” and “light steering makes the car easy to manoeuvre”. The 1.4-litre Turbo petrol engine “pulls well across the rev range and averages more than 40mpg”.

Overall, the “rough-and-tumble styling, good standard equipment, and excellent connectivity” make the Mokka X a “tempting” proposition.
