Autodealer Women’s Choice Awards 2017: Opel Mokka

Westvaal Nelspruit sponsored Opel’s compact SUV which presents quality and precision German engineering in a compact package and had the ladies do a double-take of its compact and powerful design. Aimed at drivers who are looking for a vehicle that is safe, family-oriented and powerful, the Mokka X merges functionality, connectivity, technology and safety in a vehicle which is just 4,28 metres from bumper to bumper.

Exterior

A key highlight and most obvious change is the move to new headlight clusters that combine daytime running lamps and LED technology.

Opel is a leader in this field, and the Mokka X takes advantage of this to provide owners with a dusk-to-dawn safety advantage and 24-hour illumination.

Under the bonnet

The mechanicals remain unchanged along with the four-model line-up of Enjoy and Cosmo trim choices in either manual or automatic. Powering all four Mokka X derivatives is Opel’s proven 1,4-litre four-cylinder turbocharged Ecotec petrol engine, which produces 103kW and 200Nm. It is available with a manual or automatic gearbox.

Average fuel economy on the new Mokka X 1.4T Enjoy manual is 5,9litres/100km, the Mokka X 1.4T Enjoy automatic consuming 6,2litres /100km on the combined cycle. The Mokka X 1.4T Cosmo manual sips 6,0litres/100km, with the Mokka X 1.4T Cosmo automatic returning a combined cycle average figure of 6,5litres/100km.

Interior extravaganza

The Mokka boasts a high-end infotainment system with R4.0 IntelliLink and a driver display. This connectivity package is compatible with a wide range of media platforms via a USB input and is offered as an option on the Enjoy. Optional on the Cosmo is Navi 900 IntelliLink, which includes a full-colour display.

The seamless integration of the user’s mobile device makes the Mokka X the best-connected compact SUV in South Africa.

In addition to the optional Navi 900 IntelliLink system Cosmo owners can upgrade to a premium LED lighting package which adds rear LED clusters and auto-levelling headlights with full adaptive forward lighting technology and integrated cornering lights for maximum safety – without negatively impacting other road users.

Aftersale services

There are even more good reasons for smart young families to come to Opel. The Mokka is backed by Opel Complete Care with a comprehensive five-year/120 000km warranty and comes with a five-year/90 000km service plan linked to service intervals of 15 000km.
