Vauxhall Mokka buying guide

Mokka models are available with several trim and engine options. Keep reading to learn more about each so you can pick the Mokka that suits you best.

What Vauxhall Mokka trim levels are there?

Entry-level Mokkas come in SE trim. These versions feature cruise control, air conditioning, and a basic infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This trim was renamed Design partway through the Mokka’s life.

Elite Premium is a mid-range trim that includes heated front seats, rear parking sensors and climate control. Elite Nav adds a built-in sat nav to this trim.

SRi Premium cars gain sportier styling details, larger alloy wheels, part-leather upholstery, tinted rear windows and a reversing camera. This trim was renamed to GS Line partway through the Mokka’s life. You’ll also find SRi Nav Premium, which includes a built-in sat nav.

Ultimate Edition sits at the top of Mokka range. This gets full LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, a suite of driver assists including lane keeping, auto braking and auto high beams, and Alcantara suede upholstery on the seats.

Vauxhall Mokka interior and technology

The Mokka’s interior design is, much like its exterior styling, a substantial upgrade on the version that came before it. All versions not only get an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but also digital dials ahead of the driver in place of traditional dials, helping the Mokka feel up to date. Versions with an all-black interior look a little gloomy but several trims add a dash of colour that helps to lift the cabin ambiance.

The infotainment system is reasonably good, although it’s not quite as responsive or clearly laid out as the very best in class from the likes of BMW and Mercedes. All versions of the Mokka come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to use your smartphone’s music streaming and navigation apps through the car’s screen.

Buyers looking for the most practical cars in this class probably won’t be best served by the Mokka, which trades both cabin and boot space away in pursuit of a more stylish look. Nevertheless, provided you only need the rear seats for occasional journeys, the Mokka has enough space to satisfy most owners. The boot is a useful square shape and has a relatively wide opening, but trails larger models in this class for outright space.

Vauxhall Mokka engine range explained

Vauxhall Mokka 1.2 Turbo 100

The entry-level Mokka engine is a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol borrowed from other Peugeot, Citroen and Vauxhall models. In this version, it makes 100hp and can hit 62mph from rest in 10.6 seconds. That probably won’t win any drag races, but neither will it feel strained when overtaking on the motorway.

Vauxhall Mokka 1.2 Turbo 130

The most powerful fuel-powered Mokka you can buy is the 1.2 Turbo 130. This uses the same 1.2-litre engine but boosted up to 130hp. The 0-62mph sprint drops to a fraction over nine seconds, helping this version feel more enthusiastic when you put your foot down. This engine is optionally available with a smooth eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Vauxhall Mokka-e 100kW 50kWh

To really push your running costs down, Vauxhall offers the Mokka-e EV, sharing the same electric parts as the Vauxhall Corsa-e and Peugeot e-2008. That means you get a 100kW (134hp) electric motor, which offers strong around-town acceleration, and can hit 62mph from rest in 8.7 seconds. The 50kWh battery pack can store enough electrons to cover just over 200 miles on a full charge.

Vauxhall Mokka FAQs

There’s just one version of the Mokka and it’s a five-door hatchback SUV. It shares many parts and engines with the Citroen C4 and Peugeot 2008, along with offering an EV option.

Buyers looking at nearly new cars might want to consider the slightly older Mokka X. While this might lack the stylish looks of the latest Mokka, it offers a bit more cabin space and is noticeably more affordable.

Vauxhall also makes the similarly sized Crossland X – along with the updated version, now simply called the Crossland – which focuses more on practicality over style. For even more space consider the Vauxhall Grandland X.

The Mokka is a little less than 4.2 metres long and around 100mm shorter than the older Mokka X. That makes it one of the smallest models in its class, measuring in shorter than the Peugeot 2008, Citroen C4, Renault Captur and Nissan Juke, with only the Kia Stonic coming up slightly shorter. That means the Mokka will be very slightly easier to squeeze into tight parking spaces, but can’t quite match its rivals for cabin space.

Despite its compact dimensions, four adults can fit in relative comfort, although rear headroom feels a little constricted by the sweeping roofline, and legroom will be limited if taller passengers are sat up front. There is a centre rear seat for a fifth passenger, but this is very cramped and will only work for occasional use. Boot space is, again, slightly towards the smaller end of this class – it’s large enough for one large suitcase or a weekly shop, but that’s about the limit.

Mokkas come with a choice of smooth petrol engines or, to really slash your fuel bills, there’s a battery-powered EV version. Both of the petrol choices are easy to recommend and neither feels underpowered, although we'd consider the more potent version if you do a lot of motorway miles.

The battery-powered Mokka is a great option if you have access to a home EV charger. Be aware, however, that the electric Mokka's purchase price is higher than the petrol versions, so you'll need to own it for a few years for the running cost savings to make up the difference.

The compact SUV class is extremely competitive right now, with almost all major brands offering models in this segment. As a result, most cars here are good options, so subjective differences like styling are likely to play a bigger part in your decision.

And that's where the Mokka really stands out. Compared to its slightly dull predecessor, this version has super-sharp styling with Vauxhall's distinctive 'visor' front grille and all trims above SE getting a contrast-coloured 'floating' roof. The overall look is substantially more modern than older Mokkas.

Beyond the style, the Mokka also has substance. It's not the most practical SUV in this segment, but it's noticeably larger than the Corsa hatchback that sits below it in the range, making it the choice if you need a small family car. The driving experience is easy and the dual-screen setup on top of the dashboard looks high-tech.

The latest Mokka is now uses most of the same parts and engines as the Peugeot 2008. Both Peugeot and the 2008 have scored reasonably well in reliability surveys, which bodes well for the closely related Mokka. The 1.2-litre petrol, 1.5-litre diesel and EV setup are widely used across other Peugeot, Citroen and Vauxhall models without widespread reports of issues.

If you want to protect yourself from unexpected repair costs, you can add an extended warranty to your Mokka when you buy it.

A built-in sat nav is an option on all trim levels for the Mokka. That means you'll find entry-level SE models with and without navigation, and range-topping Ultimate versions also with and without nav. The cars that have it are easy to spot because Vauxhall adds 'Nav' to the end of the trim level name.

You can still access sat nav services in every Mokka, however – even ones without built-in nav – because all versions come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. This lets you use your preferred mapping app from your smartphone through your Mokka's infotainment screen.

No. The Mokka is only offered with front-wheel drive. This is because, realistically, no Mokka owner will ever take the car far enough off road to a point where they'd need the extra driven wheels. On paved roads and even when crossing grassy fields or dirt tracks, the Mokka's front-wheel-drive setup will still generate more than enough grip and traction.

If you're worried about tackling the UK's occasional snow storms, you're much better off simply fitting a set of winter tyres to your Mokka, than shelling out for a four-wheel-drive alternative.

The Mokka is relatively small and light for an SUV. While that means parking is easy and fuel bills are low, it also means the little Vauxhall is only really suitable for towing lightweight caravans. All fuel-powered versions, regardless of which engine or gearbox you select, are rated to tow a 1,200kg braked trailer.

The battery-powered Mokka Electric is not rated for towing, so avoid this version if you need to lug loads with your Mokka.
