Opel Mokka 5 Seater Compact SUV Review

Opel Mokka Interior, Exterior, Technologies, & Engine Features

By Justin FiddlerPublished 2 months ago 3 min read

The new Opel Mokka is already well-equipped, even in the base version. Modern driver assistance systems like front collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane keeping assistant, traffic sign and fatigue detection, intelligent speed limiter, and cruise control come standard on every model. Opel Mokka has a 110 hp diesel engine that provides confident and efficient performance.

The state-of-the-art unit combines low fuel consumption (5.6 l/100 km in our test drives) with excellent driving enjoyment. The minimized friction losses also contribute to this smooth performance, and the turbocharger develops high torque even at very low engine speeds.

Interior and Exterior Design Features

The new Opel Mokka also impresses with its proportions. Short overhangs and a wide stance are typical for the bold appearance of the just 4.15-meter compact five-seater. The most striking feature of the front is the unmistakable Opel Vizor.

Like an integral helmet, a protective visor stretches over the new Opel face, seamlessly integrating the vehicle grille, LED headlights, and the redesigned central Opel Blitz in one element. The rear also presents a clear image:

  • The Mokka nameplate confidently appears in a central position on the tailgate.
  • It is completely redesigned like the whole car – with a specially designed font that forms the word "Mokka" in a technical, fluid, and vibrant manner.

The interior reflects this clear philosophy:

  • The new horizontally oriented Opel Pure Panel integrates two widescreen displays and concentrates on the essentials; all distracting visual stimuli are kept out.
  • In contrast to some other overloaded cockpits, the Pure Panel stands out with its uniquely clean design. It is structured and understandable at first glance.
  • The Opel designers placed great emphasis on digital decluttering. They ensured an intuitive system operation to keep the full attention on the traffic situation.

As a result, the most important functions can still be controlled via buttons without navigating further other parts.

Opel Mokka Innovative Technologies

The new Mokka utilizes innovative technologies from higher vehicle classes. This is demonstrated first and foremost by the class-unique adaptive and thus constantly glare-free IntelliLux LED® matrix light with 14 elements.

In addition, numerous highly advanced driver assistance systems are available. The portfolio ranges from the standard front collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection to fatigue detection, lane-keeping assist, intelligent speed limiter, and cruise control.

The Active Lane Keep Assist, Automatic Park Assist, flank protection, blind spot warning, and the 180-degree panoramic rearview camera round off the offer.

Typically, for Opel, Mokka drivers and passengers are optimally connected and entertained with the comprehensive infotainment offer.

  • Standard radio BT in the entry-level version
  • It has a fully digital 7-inch driver information display
  • Multimedia Radio and Multimedia Navi systems have a 7-inch color touchscreen.
  • The top-of-the-line Multimedia Navi Pro system offers a high-resolution 10-inch color touchscreen; here, the driver information display extends over 12 inches.
  • The monitors are integrated into the new Opel Pure Panel and ideally positioned towards the driver.
  • Compatible smartphones can be wirelessly charged via wireless charging.

Opel's typically excellent seats round off the feel-good package. Sporty Alcantara and classically beautiful leather upholstery can be ordered for the new Mokka – not a given for a vehicle in the B segment.

The crowning glory is the heated leather comfort seats with perforated covers and massage functions for the driver.

Opel Mokka Engine Features

Along with conventional powertrains, the brand also launched the electric Mokka-e on the market, but gasoline and diesel engines remain available in the range of propulsion units.

We got to test the 1.5-liter diesel engine, which provides 110 hp. It is exclusively mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, whose gearshift lever is pleasant and moves lightly and precisely in the gate.

Thanks to sound insulation, the redesigned diesel engine with a turbocharger is barely audible in the cabin. It pulls from low revs and is an ideal companion for relaxed driving, especially if you prefer low consumption over agile driving.

According to the specs, its combined consumption is 4.5 l/100 km. During our test, we achieved 5.8 liters per 100 km in the city; after driving on the highway, the consumption settled at 5.1 l/100 km.

What else does the Mokka come equipped with? In addition to the intelligent headlights, adaptive cruise control and other sophisticated driver assistance systems like lane keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, a rearview camera, and automatic parking assistant are also available.

The Opel Mokka starts at 112,900 AED.
