The Vauxhall Mokka is a popular choice among compact crossover buyers, but how well does it measure up to its rivals? We’ve taken a tape measure to Vauxhall’s alternative to the Citroen C4 Cactus and Nissan Juke, to see how it fares in the practicality stakes.
If you’re taken with its chunky looks, put the Vauxhall Mokka in our car configurator to see how much carwow could help you save.
Vauxhall Mokka exterior dimensions
Although the Mokka is marketed most closely against the Juke and the Renault Captur, its general dimensions are larger than either. The Vauxhall is both 156mm longer and 85mm taller than the Renault, making it a little trickier to park on a busy street. For some buyers, the added dimensions might make the Mokka seem less like a ‘toy car’.
Vauxhall Mokka interior dimensions
That tall shape, however, means the Mokka has plenty of headroom inside. Rear legroom isn’t significantly better than the the Captur but the back seats feel considerably less claustrophobic than those in the Nissan Juke.
Storage space is generally good too, with deep door bins and a pair of glove boxes offering up plenty of room in which to lose all manner of trinkets.
Vauxhall Mokka boot space
A 360-litre boot should be more than adequate for most buyers, with that figure falling between that offered by the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus. The rear bench folds down in a 60:40 split, and reveals a total space measuring 1,372 litres in two-seat mode. The Mokka’s tall height does bring one disadvantage – the boot opening is quite high, so larger items are a little trickier to heave into the back.

|Seats down||1,372 litres|
Vauxhall Mokka turning circle and fuel tank capacity
The Vauxhall’s 10.9-metre turning circle is fairly standard for the class, so there shouldn’t be any nasty surprises when it comes to low speed manoeuvres.
Fitted with the most fuel-sipping 1.6-litre diesel engine, the Mokka should be capable of 785 miles – should you drive it with a delicate right foot…
|Turning circle||10.9 metres|
|Fuel tank||52 litres|
Vauxhall Mokka weight
The Mokka’s larger capacity engines and bigger body than many rivals means it weighs a little bit more than the average. Unlike some competitors, it’s also available with a four-wheel-drive system that gives greater off road capability, but the rest of the time means it has even more mass to pull, to the detriment of fuel economy.
