The box-fresh Opel Mokka has officially launched in South Africa, with the new-generation model boasting a bold exterior design and upgraded tech. See pricing below…


The local range comprises two derivatives, available in a duo of trim levels. Both models are endowed with a 1.2-litre turbo-triple coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The petrol motor produces 96 kW, available from 5 500 r/min, and 230 Nm of torque, from 1 750 r/min. Opel claims a combined fuel consumption figure of 6.1 L/100 km. Matching this figure allows a driving range of 721 km from the crossover’s 44-litre fuel tank. 

The available trim grades are entry-level Elegance and top-tier GS Line. The former features standard fitment such as a seven-inch multimedia system, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; electronic climate control; a rear-view camera; heated front seats; and 17-inch alloy wheels, finished in gloss black. 

The range-topping GS Line model gains matrix LED headlamps, a 10-inch infotainment system, sat-nav, adaptive cruise control, and active lane-keep assist. This model also features a black contrast roof and headliner, among others. 


The new Mokka measures 4 151 mm in length, 1 790 mm wide and 1 535 mm in height. The wheelbase measures 2 557 mm. The ground clearance is rated at 160 mm. The suspension set-up comprises an independent MacPherson strut front and torsion beam rear arrangement. 

As standard, both variants ship with Opel’s four-year/60 000 km service plan and three-year/120 000 km warranty. The Elegance version is priced at R469 900, with the GS Line model coming in at R519 900.
