Vauxhall Mokka X SUV (2016 - )

Despite some obvious attractions, there’s too much about the Mokka X that puts us off. In particular, the below-par ride comfort and refinement mean we would recommend you try one of its rivals instead.

Our expert review

The Mokka X’s interior may not look especially modern, but it’s a nice touch that every model has a colour touch-screen at the top of the dashboard to control the infotainment system. However, there is some properly cutting-edge stuff and it’s accessed through the three small buttons in the roof. They work Vauxhall’s OnStar service, which gives you a WiFi hotspot, as well as 24/7 access to an adviser, who can answer all sorts of queries, from finding the nearest fuel station, to diagnosing problems with the car. For the most part, the Mokka X’s cabin is all solidly built, but there are a few disappointing details: the heater controls feel flimsy; and there are too many cheap-feeling plastics on show for our liking, especially around the glovebox and on the centre console. On the positive side, though, the high driving position gives an excellent view to the front, and there’s plenty of room, even for a six-foot driver.
