Launched in China today with a 1.4-litre turbocharged to deliver precisely 103 kW or 140 PS, plus 200 Nm of twisting power. The only gearbox option available is a 6-speed automatic one.

The Chinese model is also available with an "intelligent AWD system", which can switch between different driving modes in two-tenths of a second. The system continuously controls torque distribution, automatically varying the front-to-rear torque split between 100% front and 50:50.

It also gets red alcantara seats.

They love their Buick badged Opels. Just like they love the 4 speed auto Saturn Astra. Which I own.

New Opel Coffee here soon-ish

Zaragoza, Spain - Opel's first Mokka X has rolled off the production line at its factory in Zaragoza, Spain.

The Mokka X is expected to arrive in South Africa by November 2016 though will only reach dealers in January 2017.

Karl-Thomas Neumann, chairman of the management board of Opel Group, said: "The adaptation of the Spanish plant for the launch of the Opel Mokka and now the new Mokka X has been executed perfectly. This was achieved in a record time thanks to excellent planning, good coordination between all parties involved and thanks to the commitment of all employees.”

With more than 600 000 orders across Europe since its debut in 2012, the Opel Mokka is one of the most popular SUVs in its segment, says the automaker.

The new Mokka X gains sporty design elements and new interior enchantments compared to the standard SUV.

The Mokka X, says the automaker, represents a further important step in the biggest product offensive in the history of Opel/Vauxhall. From 2016 through 2020 the company will introduce 29 new models.

We know that the Opel version of the Mokka X made its debut way back in March, during the Geneva Motor Show. However, this is the first time we've been able to show you a Vauxhall version with the steering wheel on the right.
Vauxhall Mokka XThat's because production started a few days ago, and GM's British division released a full press kit, complete with photos and pricing information.

The first Mokka X examples will arrive in October, but you can already order one from £17,590 OTR. That gets you the basic model with a 1.6-liter naturally aspirated engine rated at 115 PS and a 5-speed manual. We wouldn't bother with that one because the much more powerful 1.4 turbo making 140 PS starts at 18,310 and actually gets better emissions.

However, you'd be pretty crazy not to get one of the 1.6-liter turbodiesels, which can get up to 72.4 mpg combined, equivalent to 103 grams of CO2. This means private buyers will only have to pay £20 a year in road tax. If you're after the flagship of the range, that would be the new 1.4-liter Direct Injection Turbo (152PS) petrol, joined to an automatic gearbox. And unlike most of its rivals, the Mokka X also offers all-wheel drive.

As well as new engines, the Mokka has an "X" suffix that we'll see on all the other crossovers, plus a revised exterior. The front end looks posh, especially thanks to those LED headlights.

This system replaces the previous bi-xenon setup and adapts more quickly. It's sweet of them to offer technology from the Astra, but the price is a little steep. All models get 18-inch alloy wheels, while LED daytime running lights, front fog lights and silver roof rails are also standard. They also come with an eight-inch touchscreen on the dash, from which you can operate the latest iteration of the Intellilink infotainment system. It is compatible with both Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto systems, but the built-in OS is cool as well.

You would have seen the Mokka (Coffee) not Mokka X (Coffee X).

The new Opel Mokka X has been launched in South Africa, featuring subtly updated styling and a slightly revised specification list.

Although this update includes a minor name change (the addition of the “X”), it is actually merely a facelift of the compact SUV launched internationally in 2012 and locally in early 2015. Indeed, the four-model range remains unchanged.

For the record, some 2 672 units have been sold in SA in the 18 months that the Mokka has been on the market.

So, what’s different? Well, besides the new family face, perhaps the most obvious external change to the Mokka X comes in the form of redesigned headlamps that combine daytime running lamps and LED technology.

But the cabin is where the majority of tweaks have been performed. The Enjoy model, for instance, now features Milano Jet Black upholstery, while the posher Cosmo trim comes in Jasmin Jet Black. The new Astra’s dashboard, meanwhile, has been swiped for use in the Mokka X.

The Cosmo now also boasts a high-end infotainment system with R4,0 IntelliLink and a driver display as standard (something offered as a R6 700 option on the Enjoy derivatives). Optional on the Cosmo, though, is Navi 900 IntelliLink, which includes a full colour display – and which will set you back some R10 700.

If Cosmo owners have yet more cash to splash, they can also upgrade to a premium LED lighting package, which adds LED taillights and auto-levelling headlights with “Adaptive Forward Lighting” technology and integrated cornering lights. The price for this? A princely R25 000. Or indeed a sunroof for a further R6 500.

All four derivatives – in Enjoy or Cosmo trim and with the choice of manual or automatic transmissions – are powered by an unchanged 1,4-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, still worth 103 kW and 200 N.m (the latter between 1 850 and 4 900 r/min).

For the six-speed manual models, the sprint from standstill to 100 km/h takes a claimed 9,8 seconds, with a top speed of 196 km/h. Six-speed automatic variants take 10,7 seconds to hit three figures, before running out of puff at 191 km/h.

All derivatives come standard with a five-year or 120 000 km warranty and a five-year or 90 000 km service plan (with intervals of 15 000 km). Check out pricing below (the Enjoy derivatives have gone up by around R2 000 each, while the Cosmo models each cost around R7 000 more than the prefacelift versions).

Pricing:
Opel Mokka X 1,4T Enjoy: R317 500
Opel Mokka X 1,4T Enjoy 6AT: R328 400
Opel Mokka X 1,4T Cosmo: R357 400
Opel Mokka X 1,4T Cosmo 6AT: R368 100

Does have the upper ground over the competition in terms of style and looks.
