2018 Vauxhall Mokka X 1.4 Turbo Engine Review
Comfortable, dynamic, with superior positioning and affordable price. Attributes do not lack the 2018 Vauxhall Mokka X, which is a success throughout Europe. Then why don’t we see him in Portugal? Because it pays class 2 at tolls.
Conditioning the commercial success of an SUV based on a classification system of dis framed tools of reality does not make sense. It also does not make sense to discard an automobile based on the value of tolls to pay for vacation trips.
As the purchase of cars is far from being a rational process, the Vauxhall Mokka has been relatively unnoticed to the national market. An injustice! Legal or psychological blockages aside, Vauxhall ‘s sub-compact SUV, now awarded with an X, 2018 Vauxhall Mokka x, is one of the most competent in the segment.
Mokka X 2018 Dimensions
With 4.28 meters in length, it is positioned halfway between the Renault Captur and the Nissan Qashqai, ending the 28 070 euros for leaning on the larger models. A bold positioning, for those who are smaller, pays class 2 in tolls, but fully justified by the quality of the interior. Faithful to the model launched in 2012, the Mokka X bet on a sober presentation, worthy of the upper segment, now subordinate to the image of the Astra.
On the outside shine, the indispensable LED optics, drawing attention to the new and more aggressive design of the bodywork extremities.
Beyond the steering wheel, little more survived the restyling. In the hangover of the buttons fever that affected the designers of Russelheim in the last decade, Vauxhall seems to have adopted the politics of less is more. Fewer commands, more ergonomics. Developed around Astra’s known 7 ‘ ‘ screen, the central console and the dashboard stand out for the fluidity of the lines. Also redesigned, the dashboard is cleaner and with better reading.
Out of sight, GM’s Gamma II platform maintains the rear axle twisting, when most competitors already utilize Multiarm solutions. Some comfort is lost, especially for those traveling behind, and controlling the bodywork on degraded floors.
Generous in delivering 320 Nm of binary, the 1.6 136 hp engine arises associated with a six-speed manual box.
Loss of contact with the soil aggravated by the firm hit of the dampers, necessary to control a high bodywork based on a narrow platform. Perfect for City, the lightness of direction makes Mokka X too nervous on highway
To the mechanical and precise touch, the box brings together the rapid escalation of the first four relationships to expedite driving in the city. At the opposite end, the fifth and sixth are so long that they make it impossible to recover speed in time. On the other hand, they fulfill the objective of controlling consumption, maintaining the weighted average of the 6.3 L/100 km, two liters above the official value
Functional and more spacious than it looks, 2018 Vauxhall Mokka X has the perfect size to not get lost on the city’s tightest streets. Available with front or integral traction and engine 1.6 CDTi of 136 CV, it is an SUV to take into account for those seeking an alternative to the automobile
