‘Smart’ car caters for new breed of buyer

of buyer,” says Rory Harvey, Vauxhall’s chairman and managing director.

“The Crossland X will sit next to the Mokka X in our range, but their identities will be well-defined and we anticipate that each will have its own following. More will be revealed at the start of next year.”

The Mokka X, says Vauxhall, aims to “build on the popularity of the successful Mokka model, introducing a fresh interior and updated exterior design, as well as a new powertrain and featuring Vauxhall OnStar and Apple CarPlay”.

This could be a canny marketing strategy for Vauxhall because the competitive compact SUV segment continues to grow and is now one of the largest in the UK.

The Mokka X has a wider, more solid and muscular stance on the road, while retaining its “sporty edge”.

I think the styling of the X is immediately more appealing.

The Mokka X has a new dashboard inspired by the new Astra, and a simpler, revised instrument panel.

The look has been redeveloped around the seven- and eight-inch touchscreens of the new generation infotainment systems.

Now with fewer buttons, it has functions that are accessible via the touchscreen. The new Mokka X adds the 1.4-litre Direct Injection Turbo (152PS) petrol unit to the range, in addition to the 1.6-litre ‘Whisper Diesel’ engine introduced last year.

The 1.4-litre Turbo is available with manual or six-speed automatic transmission, as well as adaptive all-wheel-drive and start/stop. Official figures for the petrol engine claim up to 47.1mpg combined and CO2 emissions of 140g/km.

The front-wheel drive only or all-wheel-drive settings adapt automatically based on the road conditions, benefitting fuel consumption without affecting the driving experience. Vauxhall has also introduced LED Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) headlamps.

The new AFL LED system adapts the headlights’ lighting patterns automatically to the driving situation to give the best possible light performance without dazzling other road users.

It features nine different functions, with the new LED system replacing the previous BiXenon AFL.

The new Mokka X is available with the personal connectivity and service assistant, OnStar. OnStar offers customers a broad range of safety and comfort services, including access to a trained adviser. OnStar also turns the Mokka X into a 4G LTE mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, enabling up to seven devices, from smartphones to tablets, to be connected simultaneously.

Two versions of the new generation IntelliLink infotainment system make their debut in the Mokka X.

The R 4.0 IntelliLink and NAVI 900 IntelliLink bring the world of smartphones to the car via both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone projection.
