Vauxhall adds Griffin trim to Mokka, Astra and Adam

Vauxhall Griffin

Vauxhall has expanded its special edition Griffin range to include high specification versions of the Mokka X Plus, Astra and Adam.

The Griffin trim was first introduced on the Corsa, featuring Apple Carplay, Android Auto, sat-nav, air conditioning, heated front seats and heated steering wheel.

The Mokka X Griffin Plus comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, electronic climate control, rain sensitive windscreen wipers, heated front seats and heated steering wheel.

The Astra Griffin is fitted with 18-inch bi-colour alloy wheels, a seven-inch colour touchscreen, electronic climate control, auto windscreen wipers, heated front seats and heated steering wheel.

On the Adam Griffin, sports suspension, cruise control, 17-inch black alloy wheels, a seven-inch colour touchscreen and sat-nav comes as standard.

Vauxhall adopted the Griffin as its logo in 1915. The chief engineer and designer, Laurence H Pomeroy, offered the prize of two guineas for the design of a new symbol. The brief was for a heraldic design and the prize was won by a young apprentice called Harry Varley who proposed the image of a griffin, a mythical creature depicted on the coat of arms of Fulk le Breant,  driving a “V” flag into the ground.

 

Once the Griffin had been selected, the logo itself proceeded to evolve over the years, with the design becoming progressively simpler and more graphic.
