A sector that has become fashionable in recent years is the SUV, and there is an increasing number of brands that have a SUV model within their catalogue. The Mokka was presented as the rival to the Skoda Yeti, the Mitsubishi ASX and the Nissan Juke. Discover our car hire service at Car Hire Malaga Airport.
The competition within this sector is truly fierce, and if any of these vehicles are notable for anything, it is that they have a common denominator, their multi-purpose use, both in town and out of town.
The Opel Mokka has a modern aesthetic with a certain sporty feel and has very practical accessories designed for journeys out of town, such as the flexfix system for carrying bicycles. Fetajo offers a car hire service at Rent a Car Malaga Airport.
One of the main features which the Opel Mokka can show off about is its spacious interior in which five occupants can travel in comfort, and the elegance and quality of the interior finish. In addition, it has almost 19 compartments in the front for placing items. As a negative, we could mention the excessive amount of buttons for operating the menus of the on-board navigator.
The 1.700 CC road tested diesel engine offers optimum development linked to a 6-speed manual transmission which allows for a smooth ride with more than enough power for the car’s 1.500 Kg weight.
The trialled engine is a 130CV diesel which is characterised by its very low fuel consumption. During our trial, it did not go above 6 l/100Km.
On very bendy roads a little more firmness in the suspension would be appreciated to avoid the excessive balancing of the bodywork, although if the road is in poor repair, the suspension absorbs irregularities in the tarmac really well, which is something that is found in SUV vehicles.
The Mokka is not an all-terrain vehicle, so if you don’t push it to the extreme on a dirt road it will give you good results. The Opel comes with front wheel drive and four wheel drive, and the latter system switches itself on automatically according to the conditions of the terrain.
