Vauxhall Mokka Crossover 1.7 CDTi 130 SE 4x4 S/S 5dr Review

For This is easily the most fuel-efficient version of the Mokka, and that means it’s also the cheapest for company car drivers. SE models come with stacks of equipment, including part leather seats, front and rear parking sensors, Xenon headlights and 18-inch alloys.

Against The 1.7-litre diesel engine is very noisy, and there isn’t much pull below 2000rpm. SE models are very expensive to buy, while some rivals are more fuel-efficient.

This is the Mokka of choice for company car drivers. At this price, though, Vauxhall’s small SUV makes very little sense.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Mokka isn't without appeal. It looks good, is fairly practical and some versions are reasonably priced. However, Vauxhall’s SUV doesn’t do anything better than a Nissan Qashqai or a Skoda Yeti, and in several key areas, it’s a long way behind them.

If you’re a company car driver, go for the 1.7 diesel in Tech Line trim. CO2 emissions of 120g/km and a low list price keeps Benefit in Kind (BiK) tax bills fairly low, but you’ll still get plenty of kit, including sat-nav.

However, the diesel engine is quite noisy, so if you’re a private buyer, we’d recommend the 1.4 petrol. It’s smoother, quieter and cheaper to buy.
