Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Without getting out our tape measure, the Vauxhall Mokka feels just as spacious as the closely-related Peugeot 2008. There’s plenty of head and leg room, and the interior is wide enough to ensure you don’t knock elbows with your passenger.
There’s also plenty of storage space up front, including a generously sized glovebox and a couple of reasonably sized door bins. There’s also a surprisingly large storage tray at the bottom of the dash that’s big enough to take a hefty wallet or a large smartphone. As mentioned earlier, that's where you’ll find the wireless charging pad on Ultimate Nav models.
However, if you want a car with more carrying flexibility, there are better options out there, such as the Mini Countryman with its rear bench that folds in a more practical 40/20/40 split, the Volkswagen T-Roc with its standard-fit ski hatch, and the smaller Volkswagen T-Cross, which has a sliding rear bench.
Front passenger seat height adjustment is standard from SRI/Elite Nav upwards, but there's no option of adjustable lumbar support for the passenger on any of the trims.
Boot space in the Vauxhall Mokka is pretty unremarkable by class standards. There’s enough for a weekly shop or a short family holiday, but rivals such as the Ford Puma, Renault Captur, Seat Arona and especially the Skoda Kamiq offer more space. However, you can at least drop the rear seats if you need to move larger items.
