Spy shots: revamped 2016 Vauxhall Mokka 0

The new Vauxhall Mokka was spotted during a test drive this week, wearing covers on the front and rear of its body. This can only mean one thing; the 2016 Mokka is being revamped.

By looking at the spy shots provided by Autocar, we can see the Mokka will receive an updated front end, a newly designed grille and brand new headlight clusters. Although the exterior updates are only small, the 2016 Mokka will feel reinvigorated thanks to the minor tweaks and the addition of popular features. Vauxhall has recently made mild changes to the Astra, Corsa and Viva, all of which have been successful sales ventures.

The new Mokka is also expected to have a revamped interior, with the fit and finish of the cabin redesigned. Extra features available, depending on the trim level, will include Vauxhall’s IntelliLink infotainment system and the brand’s new OnStar connectivity system.

Many people criticised the current Mokka for lacking engine power, but the 2016 Mokka is likely to inherit both the new Astra’s 104bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit and the 148bhp 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol unit. The other engine options are likely to be those already available to the current Mokka.

The new Mokka is expected to go on sale in the early months of next year, with a slight price increase on the entry-level £16,684 of its current model.
