After discontinuing the Antara, Opel’s (Vauxhall’s) first SUV was the Mokka. It was introduced in 2012 and facelifted four years later, when it also gained the ‘X’ suffix.
Except for a few millimeters shaved from its footprint, the former is pretty much the same size as the Mokka X. However, the main difference between the two is that the Mokka X can be had with all-wheel drive, whereas the Crossland X has to make do with front-wheel drive only.
WhatCar recently went for a spin in a Mokka X and found it not that pleasant to drive. The crossover rolls too much in corners, has numb steering and not enough grip. On the plus side, the 1.4-liter engine, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, was declared the smartest choice thanks to the quiet ride and sufficient punch.
Inside, the subcompact crossover can sit four adults quite comfortable, but five’s a crowd. Front visibility is good, and drivers shouldn’t be annoyed by the thick C-pillars thanks to the rear parking sensors.
The infotainment system is easy to navigate and pretty responsive, there are plenty of storage spaces and boot space won’t disappoint, either. So, what else did the reviewer had to say about the Mokka X? Only one way to find out.
