Is a used Vauxhall Mokka X a good car?

The Vauxhall Mokka X is a small SUV that majored on kit but let itself down with a drab interior design and small boot.

It’s easy to get comfortable in the front and there’s a standard-fit 7.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Design Nav trim got an 8.0-inch screen though, so opt for one of these if your budget allows.

Rear seat space is a little less accommodating. Despite being quite tall there’s not a great deal of headroom, while the narrow body means fitting three adults is a squeeze. 

Boot space is just 356 litres, which is quite a bit less than the 410 litres you get in a Peugeot 2008 or 430 litres in a Nissan Qashqai. On the plus side there’s no annoying lip to load heavy items over and you can fold the rear seats down to carry long items as well as two rear passengers.

The 1.4-litre petrol is the best option for those who spend a lot of time in town because it’s nippier than the diesel and should get a respectable 35mpg (despite its official figure being 45mpg).

In corners the Mokka feels wallowy and leans a lot, but this soft suspension doesn’t result in a comfortable ride. It crashes through potholes and jiggles about on rough roads. The Qashqai is a more comfortable companion.

As a result, the Mokka X could be a good choice for those attracted to it as a value proposition, but alternatives are more practical, enjoyable to drive and with nicer interiors.

What to look for when buying a second hand Vauxhall Mokka X

If buying a 2016 1.6-litre diesel model, there was an issue with the turbocharger that could see it fail at low mileages. Listen out for a whine when the car starts up. If there is an issue and it’s not spotted, it could damage the engine beyond repair.

Some later manual gearboxes have a tendency to fail. If the car struggles to get into third or fifth gear or it rattles while stationary, there could be a problem and it’s probably best to just walk away.

The Mokka X is a popular city car, which isn’t the ideal use for a diesel. If buying one of these models, look out for a warning lamp relating to the diesel particulate filter being blocked. A long, high-speed run could clear it, but if it’s damaged it could require costly repairs.
