The 2015 Opel Mokka arrives in South Africa this week and we have the specifications and pricing for you. The vehicle goes on sale at the end of March 2015.
Opel is really making waves, both locally and internationally with a flurry of new products. Late last year we saw the Opel Adam land on our shores and not so long ago, the all-new Opel Corsa was launched. Now it's time for the 2015 Opel Mokka to shine. Its Opel's first ever sub-compact SUV and it has already achieved mega sales in Europe with over 240 000 units finding homes.
“The all-new Opel Mokka is an exciting addition to the Opel portfolio and follows ADAM and Corsa as a truly adaptable lifestyle option,” comments Christopher Cradock, Opel Brand Manager at GMSA.
Simply, the 2015 Opel Mokka comes as a four-model range. There are two trim levels and two gearboxes available. The six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmission are both powered by the tried-and-tested 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 103kW and 200Nm. At this stage, the 2015 Opel Mokka will only be front-wheel drive.
Performance and EngineThe 2015 Opel Mokka will be able to hit 100kph in just 9.8 seconds for the manual, while the automatic completes the same sprint in a fractionally slower 10.7. In terms of top speed, you're looking at 196kph for the manual and 191kph for the automatic, while the fuel economy is rated at 6.0 and 6.6L/100km for the manual and automatic Enjoy models respectively. The Cosmo derivatives claim figures of 6.3 and 7.0L/100km for the manual and automatic models respectively.
