Vauxhall Mokka X buying guide

You’ll find Mokka X models in a selection of different trim and engine options. Read on to learn more about each choice so you can pick the best fit for you.

What Vauxhall Mokka X trim levels are there?

The range opens with Active trim. This specification includes dual-zone climate control, cruise control, alloy wheels, roof rails, and an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, DAB radio and Bluetooth.

Next up is Design Nav trim. These models gain a larger touchscreen for the infotainment system along with built-in sat-nav.

Griffin is a special edition trim that adds premium touches including part-faux-leather seats with seat heaters for the front, a heated steering wheel, Griffin-branded floor mats, automatic wipers, auto high-beam assist, larger alloy wheels and some special paint colours. You can also find Griffin Plus versions which gain even larger five-spoke alloy wheels.

At the top of the range sits Elite trim. This includes leather upholstery, front heated sports seats and a rear seat centre armrest.

Vauxhall Mokka X interior and technology

As a slightly older car in Vauxhall’s lineup, the Mokka X doesn’t get the more up-to-date, angular interior styling you’ll find in the latest Mokka. The interior is still neatly laid out, however, and features reasonably nice materials on most of the surfaces you touch regularly. Happily, there are still physical controls for the climate control, so you don’t have to go hunting through screens to turn the heat up.

The infotainment system, like the rest of the car, isn’t the most up to date example on the market but still functions well enough. The standard seven-inch unit includes DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB and aux-in, along with the all-important Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Upgraded models get a larger eight-inch display with built-in sat-nav if you don’t want to use your smartphone’s native nav apps.

Space both in the cabin and in the boot is a strong point for the Mokka X. There’s enough room for four adults to sit comfortably, and pushing this to five won’t present too many issues except on longer journeys. The boot is also relatively large, able to take push chairs or a small dog with ease – buyers on the lookout for even more cargo room might want to look at the larger Vauxhall Grandland X.

Vauxhall Mokka X engine range explained

Vauxhall Mokka X 1.4T petrol

The single petrol engine option for the Mokka X is a 1.4-litre turbocharged unit making 140hp. This completes the 0-62mph run in a little over nine seconds, which is quite good for the class and means the Mokka X doesn’t feel strained at motorway speeds.

Vauxhall Mokka X 1.6 CDTi 136 diesel

If you’re a high-mileage driver, you might want to consider the Mokka X’s diesel engine option. This is a 1.6-litre turbodiesel making 136hp, which also completes the 0-62mph dash in a little over nine seconds – again, helping these models feel relaxed at higher speeds. Fuel economy can be very impressive if you drive with a light right foot.

Your Vauxhall Mokka X questions answered

The Mokka X comes in just one version and it’s a five-door SUV. It originally launched in 2016 as a substantial refresh of the older Vauxhall Mokka and carried on sale until 2019.

From 2021 onwards, Vauxhall has dropped the ‘X’ part of the name with the new Mokka – this is an all-new car that shares parts and engines with the Peugeot 2008 and Citroen C4.

Buyers in this market might also want to take a look at the Vauxhall Crossland X, which is very slightly smaller than the Mokka X, but offers similar SUV looks and practicality.

The Mokka X is slightly less than 4.3 metres long. That places it towards the larger end of its class, being a few millimetres longer than the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Volkswagen T-Roc. Despite this, it’s still easy to live with in the city, with a smaller footprint than a Vauxhall Astra or Ford Focus.

Cabin space is a strong point in the Mokka X, with head and elbow room less compromised than more stylised rivals such as the Nissan Juke. Five adults can sit in relative comfort inside with only rear elbow room being a potential issue. Boot space is similarly among the best in this class, with enough room for around two large suitcases.

There are just two choices in the Mokka X engine range after Vauxhall decided to pair it down to just the most popular options.

Yes. Four-wheel drive was offered as an option throughout the Vauxhall Mokka X's production run. It was available with both the 1.4-litre turbo petrol and the 1.6-litre diesel. Four-wheel-drive versions came with the six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but the petrol 4x4 version was offered with an optional six-speed automatic.

Most reliability surveys that include the Mokka X show it to be fairly reliable, with few common problems reported. It's an updated version of the older Mokka platform, which has given Vauxhall more time to work out the bugs.

For extra peace of mind, you can add an extended warranty to your Mokka X to insulate you from unexpected repair costs.

For buyers, Mokka X cars began arriving at the end of 2016 and are heavily facelifted versions of the older Mokka SUV that launched in 2012.

Vauxhall insists the 'X' stands for 'Xtra'. In the Mokka X's case, because it's "Xtra exciting" with "Xtra height…Xtra feelgood factor…Xtra traction…[and] Xtra clever technology". So, hopefully, that clears that up.
