Vauxhall has announced that there will be a fourth trim line of its Mokka SUV aimed at company car drivers, called Tech Line and costing £15,995.
Available from today, Mokka Tech Line offers company car drivers “exceptional” levels of standard spec, combined with low P11D prices and attractive benefit-in-kind charges, says Vauxhall. Tech Line models can already be found in the Astra and Insignia model ranges.
The Mokka Tech Line will enter the growing sub-compact SUV B-segment, but despite its compact 4.28 metre length can accommodate five adults in comfort.
Its key rival will be the Nissan Qashqai although some customers may well view the Mokka as a competitor to the Juke and the Skoda Yeti. Like all Vauxhall passenger cars, the Mokka comes with Lifetime Warranty.
The Mokka comes with very generous levels of standard equipment, including the Navi 600 satellite navigation system, DMB (Digital Media Broadcast) radio, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, 18 inch alloy wheels and cruise control. This is on top of air conditioning, Descent Control System, aux-in and a multi-function trip computer.
Three engines, ranging in power from 115 to 140PS, will be available from launch. The 1.6-litre petrol produces 115PS and 155Nm of torque, and with its standard Start/Stop system delivers a combined 43.5mpg. With 140PS, the 1.4-litre turbo is the Mokka’s most powerful petrol engine and brings with it standard four-wheel drive and sub-150g C02 emissions.
The Mokka has a choice of two diesel models, both of which use Vauxhall’s 1.7 CDTi 130PS engine, with C02 emissions as low as 124g/km.
In front-wheel drive form, the 1.7 CDTi is available with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, and with all-wheel drive the Mokka comes with the six-speed manual only. Like the petrol-powered cars, all manual models have Vauxhall’s fuel-saving Start/Stop system as standard.
“The Mokka takes its design cues from larger SUVs and integrates them into a compact, yet modern form,” said Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s chairman and managing director.
“We are now growing a compelling and diverse range of products that appeal both to retail and fleet customers, and the Mokka will complement this perfectly.”
James Taylor, fleet sales director, said: “Mokka expands our Tech Line range aimed at fleet customers after its launch earlier this year with Astra and Insignia.”
