GM’s Mokka Could Be A SUV Winner
General Motors is joining the sub-compact SUV B-segment with an all new car, the Mokka. It will for starters be badged as an Opel and Vauxhall and later the Mokka could be sold as a Chevrolet in either front- or four-wheel drive, with a choice of three engines – a 115 bhp 1.6-litre, a turbo 140 bhp 1.4-litre or a turbo 1.7-litre CDTI diesel with 130 bhp with plenty of torque, the latter two with either six-speed manual or six-speed auto transmissions.
The new small SUV will be sold under Opel in Europe and Vauxhall in the U.K., enabling General Motors to participate in new market territory. This compact SUV is an urban vehicle that comfortably seats five and shows a compact trendy SUV is the way to go for the future generation.
The Mokka will feature class-first lighting technologies in the form of its Advanced Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL+) and High Beam Assist (HBA), plus a new generation of the Opel/Vauxhall front camera system, which by virtue of image processing adds Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Alert (FCA) and second generation Traffic Sign Recognition.
