New Front Wheel Drive Model and High End Infotainment Systems Strengthens Range

The new 1.4-litre Turbo petrol model with 140PS petrol is now available in front-wheel drive. Initially it was only available as an all-wheel drive manual. With six-speed manual transmission or optional automatic and Start/Stop. The combined fuel consumption is just 47.9mpg with emissions of only 139g/km CO2. It accelerates from 0-62mph in 9.9 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 120mph.

Moving inside, the Vauxhall Mokka gains optional, state-of-the-art infotainment systems CD 600 and Navi 950. Intuitive and easy-to-use, the new systems feature a high-resolution, 7-inch colour display, where the image from the optional rear camera is also displayed. Bluetooth connectivity for both mobile and audio streaming is also available. The Navi 950 comes standard with comprehensive Europe-wide mapping and can be updated by simple download via the USB port. The Navi 950’s premium Bose sound system provides punchy, clear and robust audio with six loudspeakers, a subwoofer and digital amplifier.

A new bold and eye-catching Orange Rock metallic exterior paint colour is now available with optional 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels.

“We are delighted to make the popular Mokka even more appealing with new powertrains and high-end infotainment units,” said Stuart Harris, Vauxhall’s Head of Carline Brand.
