There’s something a bit exciting about the letter X, isn’t there? The location of the treasure on a pirate map. A warning label on some dangerous chemicals. A film with some (ahem) naughty content. The list could go on.
So what’s exciting about the Vauxhall Mokka X, you might well ask? Well, a couple of things, actually. Firstly, it’s a small SUV, so it’s arguably more interesting to look at than a conventional hatchback (think the Astra). And if you choose carefully, there are some big discounts available on the brochure prices.
The Mokka X is one of three SUVs in Vauxhall’s line-up, sitting between the cheaper Crossland X and the larger Grandland X. In terms of size, its closest rivals include the Volkswagen T-Roc, Honda HR-V and Mini Countryman, but its price also overlaps with slightly smaller offerings, such as the Seat Arona and Volkswagen T-Cross.
It certainly doesn’t want for variety: there’s also the option to spec front or four-wheel drive, petrol or diesel power and a manual or automatic gearbox. Meanwhile, even the base model is well equipped, while the range-topping Griffin and Griffin Plus trims feature almost everything on the options list.
