Leasing a Vauxhall Mokka X
Engines and performance for the Vauxhall Mokka X
Depending on the choice of Vauxhall Mokka X model, there are two engines to choose from; a 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 140 PS or a 1.6 litre CDTi diesel unit producing 138 PS. Fuel economy will range from 40 mpg for the petrol engine, while the diesel unit should return around 52 mpg. Both engines offer good levels of responsiveness and the overall performance should meet most needs. There's also the option of an automatic gearbox, which is surprisingly responsive and a good choice for those who undertake long journeys regularly.
Equipment and handling
The Vauxhall Mokka X offers lots of space and equipment to potential owners and since the car is designed as urban transport, the Mokka X comes with protective side protection mouldings and a front skid plate to help it stand out from the crowd. Roof rails are also fitted as standard as is the solar heat-absorbing windscreen. It's a very comfortable car to drive with the petrol unit delivering a nippy performance around town and the diesel offering a comfortable cruising experience on long motorway journeys. While it's competing in a competitive segment, the Mokka X is a practical choice for families with the Active entry-level model coming with lots of equipment including smartphone connectivity, a 7-inch colour touchscreen and USB connection. There's also dual-zone climate control, cruise control, anti-lock braking, hill start assist and traction control. The infotainment system is impressive with satnav being fitted as standard in some models. Also, for those that need it, there's the option of intelligent all-wheel drive for those who want to take the car off-road or, more likely, to drive it across muddy fields or lanes on a regular basis. Essentially, the Vauxhall Mokka X offers a value for money small SUV for those who want a practical family car.
