New small SUV to join Vauxhall range
10/01/12 16:17 Filed in: News
These are the first official pictures of the new Vauxhall Mokka, a small SUV that will take Vauxhall into a new market sector when it is officially launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Vauxhall say that, despite its compact dimensions (it is just 4.28metres long) it “can accommodate five adults in comfort”. The Mokka has been designed to look very much like an SUV, taking its design cues from bigger SUVs. There will be a choice of diesel and petrol engines when the new model goes on sale in the UK at the end of this year.
In line with the trend in the SUV market, the Mokka will come with four-wheel-drive or two-wheel-drive, to reduce cost and improve fuel economy.
There will be three engines all with stop/start systems – a 115PS, 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated engine, a 140PS 1.4-litre Turbo and a 130PS 1.7 CDTI turbo diesel.
