Introduction & Exterior

The headlamp assembly carries Opel’s current “Wing Signature” design daytime running lights

Creole lady Marmalade? Not quite. The Opel Mokka X compact SUV brings a little fun to your drive, while the fuel sipping 1.6 litre turbocharged diesel engine keeps your fuel costs low.

Just off the ship, we wanted to find out how much Mokka goodness is there in this car.


Styling-wise, the Mokka X is intended to go up against the popular crossover market. It is taller than the DS4 Crossback’s 1,535mm, at 1,659mm, making it still a little more SUV-ish.

The headlamp assembly carries Opel’s current “Wing Signature” design daytime running lights, which can be found on all their current cars. The side profile features subtly formed pinches in the door, which flow reward and terminate with the rear tail lamps.

The rear boot lid is fuss-free, with an upward-sweeping rear windscreen, and a chrome bar which sits over the licence plate holder.

You do get some black body mouldings surrounding the car, with them forming guards around the wheel arches. There is a faux aluminium bush scrape guard in the front and rear to complete the off-road inspired look. The 215/55R18 tyres are carried by some appealing ten spoke alloys.

The Mokka X does sit as high off the ground as just about any vanilla compact sedan, and we would not advise even, any kind of remotely mild mud plugging with it. Seriously, it really is a road car.
