Heir to a model developed under the General Motors era and sold 92,138 copies in France, the Mokka 2 has been completely redesigned.
Designed on a CMP platform used as the basis for the Peugeot 2008 and DS3 Crossback, it is produced in France, on the assembly lines of the Poissy plant.
Chic and compact, with 4.15 meters long, the German is presented as a premium alternative to the Opel Crossland, slightly more family-friendly and taller (4.21 m), but a bit less opulent.
These two models also share their mechanical range, with gasoline and diesel engines. However, the Mokka stands out with a very neat presentation, with a high-tech appearance, and with a 100% electric version.
Competitor of the Nissan Juke, Ford Puma, Hyundai Kona and Toyota Yaris Cross, the Mokka has sold 1,256 units (volume stopped at the end of May 2021) since the first French deliveries, made in February 2021.
Opel Mokka: the equipment
- The basic version, called Edition (from € 21,600), receives for safety the autonomous urban emergency braking with pedestrian detection, the active maintenance system in the traffic lane, the cruise control / speed limiter, the recognition of signs and six airbags.
Digital instrumentation on a 7-inch slab, the7 inch touch screen (with Bluetooth and four speakers), four electric windows and electric mirrors are also standard equipment.
The Edition also benefits from the leather-wrapped steering wheel, manual air conditioning and 16-inch alloy wheels. The electric version adds the Mode 2 charging cable, automatic air conditioning and “hands-free” starting.
- The Elegance finish (from 23,250 €) In addition, there is automatic air conditioning (single zone), Apple CarPlay / Android Auto compatibility, 6 speakers, specific fabric / Alcantara upholstery and a height-adjustable passenger seat.
The panoramic rear view camera, automatic switching on of the headlights and wipers, 17-inch alloy wheels and electrically folding exterior mirrors complete the equipment.
The Elegance Business version (from € 24,550) takes all this and adds “hands-free” access-start and connected GPS.
- The GS Line finish (from 24 650 €) is the most widespread: it has achieved almost 45% of French sales of Mokka so far.
Taking up the equipment of the Elegance, it takes care of its finery with colored 18-inch rims and dark-tinted rear windows, and removes the chrome elements.
This level of equipment also benefits from a sport upholstery, an adaptive cruise control and a autonomous emergency braking operating at any speed.
- The high-end, called Ultimate (from € 28,900), based on Elegance Business, is adorned with Alcantara upholstery, a 10-inch touch screen, heated steering wheel and front seats, an instrumentation panel increased to 12 inches, front and rear parking, 18-inch rims and Matrix LED headlamps.
Our tip: the Elegance, placed above the Access version, already has everything you need. But the GS Line version, aesthetically more dynamic, will be even more reassuring, pleasant to live in and easy to sell.
Opel Mokka : and essence
A single three-cylinder block, but two power levels: the Mokka takes advantage of the 1.2 turbo engine, available in 100 (5 CV) and 130 hp (7 CV).
The most accessible version, which accounts for 19% of the mix, displays great pleasure and is sober. It is not offered than with a mechanical gearbox six-speed, also available on the 1.2 Turbo increased to 130 hp.
The latter (from € 22,950), no more greedy than the 100 hp version, displays much better times and acceleration (1.8 seconds less at 0 to 100 km / h).
The fact remains that this engine is particularly attractive because it is the only thermal equipped withan automatic transmission (+ € 2,000), which slightly increases fuel consumption (+ 0.4 l / 100 km depending on the homologation cycle) and suffers from a small penalty (from 50 to 100 €).
But this soft and intelligent auto gearbox benefits well-being.
Our advice: Mokka 1.2 Turbo 130 hp, for better performance without overconsumption. The Automatic version, more expensive, also offers a very nice pleasure.
Opel Mokka: en diesel
No choice: the only diesel engine is the 1.5 liter 110 hp (5 hp), displayed from € 24,050. The 130 hp variation, offered on the Peugeot 2008 cousin, does not integrate the Mokka catalog.
And only a 6-speed mechanical transmission is available. In terms of approval, this engine suffers from the comparison with gasoline units, but it shows good availability and performance close to those of the 1.2 Turbo 100 hp.
The 1.5 Diesel also shines with its remarkable sobriety, able to appeal to heavy riders.
Opel Mokka: in electric
For its electric version (4 CV), the Mokka uses the same recipe as its cousins from Peugeot and DS: it uses an engine that can deliver up to 100 kW (136 hp) in Sport mode, supplied with “juice” by a 50 kWh capacity battery.
This gives it 322 kilometers of autonomy according to the homologation cycle, and approximately 250 “real” kilometers between two recharges, on a mixed course.
Restricted to 150 km / h, the Mokka-e, which represents 18% of French sales, is displayed from € 36,400, and eligible for the € 7,000 bonus.
Opel Mokka: an option to choose?
Metallic paint costs € 550, leather upholstery € 1,600. Smartphone charging by induction, accompanied by two USB ports on the back, appears at 150 €, while, on Elegance, the“hands-free” access-start is offered as a supplement, at € 400. For the Mokka-e, the 11 kW on-board charger is priced at 900 €.
