The Vauxhall Mokka is a completely new model launched into the lucrative and rapidly expanding compact Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) or crossover market. The company hopes that the neatly styled, practical and well specified car will appeal to those with a more active lifestyle, as well as helping to draw in new buyers to Vauxhall.

Running costs

Vauxhall Mokka running costs will be low thanks to a combination of good economy, sensible road tax costs, wide service intervals and the car's "Lifetime" warranty. Vauxhall's servicing costs aren't overly expensive either, further helping keep costs down.

It's worth noting that higher specification versions of the Mokka do have bigger tyres which will cost more to replace than the entry level model's. Bear that in mind if you're looking at a used example, as a set of replacement tyres will set you back a substantial amount.

Emissions summary

The Mokka's green credentials are good. All Mokka models are relatively inexpensive to tax as even the least green version, the 1.6-litre petrol, emits 153g/km. Yearly tax bills won't break the bank as a result.

The cleanest version is the 1.7-litre CDTi front-wheel drive diesel model, which emits 120g/km of CO2. That helps keep overall Vauxhall Mokka emissions down.

If you're looking for the lowest road tax costs, or you're a company car driver, then the 1.7-litre CDTi diesel is the one to pick. It's also the most economical choice as it's claimed to average 62.8mpg.

A stop/start system comes as standard on all manual Mokkas, helping reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
