The Vauxhall Mokka X
"These goodies are Vauxhalls R 4.0 IntelliLink and NAVI 900 infotainment software allowing you to incorporate smartphone technology and apps into your Mokka X."
Vauxhall Mokka X denotes the design and styling improvements made to the original Mokka introduced for the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. One thing the Mokka has always been is popular, and whilst many of its rivals give it a good run for its money the buyers love ‘em. Even more so since it became the Mokka X.
Hence Vauxhall are able to boast sales surpassing 120,000 since the Mokka’s launch and last year it rated in the top ten cars sold in the UK. It clearly has a solution for all needs as the stats show the Mokka sells equally to retail and private buyers alike. Last year it strengthened its position as number one in its segment, outselling its rivals for both fleet and retail sales.
Variety and choice
So with the Mokka X Vauxhall are clearly getting something right. Obviously the enhanced styling both outside and in have done the trick for many, but the endless variety of engine and spec options, including two or four wheel drive, along with flexible and accessible purchase options round off the story.
The Mokka X introduced an additional powertrain to the segment, the 1.4-litre Direct Injection Turbo (152PS) petrol. It joins the popular 1.6-litre ‘Whisper Diesel’ engine introduced in 2015. The 1.4-litre Turbo is available with manual or six-speed automatic transmission, as well as adaptive all-wheel drive and start/stop. The petrol engine can achieve up to 47.1mpg combined and CO2 emissions of 140g/km.
There’s nothing wrong with whetting the appetite with enticement. These goodies are Vauxhalls R 4.0 IntelliLink and NAVI 900 infotainment software allowing you to incorporate smartphone technology and apps into your Mokka X. The high spec NAVI R 9.0 comes standard in higher spec versions or as a £700 option otherwise, whilst the lower spec Intellilink is standard on Design Nav and Elite Nav model options. The Mokka X with R 4.0 IntelliLink features a seven-inch touchscreen as well as USB and Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone calls, audio streaming and viewing photos and videos. Like NAVI 900 IntelliLink, it is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
To improve safety on the road, Mokka X also introduced optional AFL LED headlamps; these produce a bright white light automatically and instantly adapt to the driving situation. AFL LED features nine individual functions, to optimise visibility and save energy.
There is little doubt that Vauxhall have the magic formula to attract and retain its buyers. It helps that the Mokka looks like an SUV you want to drive rather than have to.
