Christopher Cradock, Opel brand manager at GMSA, said: "The new Opel Mokka is an exciting addition to the Opel portfolio and follows the Adam and Corsa as an adaptable lifestyle option.

"The vehicle's high levels of quality, driving aids and safety technology, as well as versatility, place the Mokka firmly at the top of its segment. It is aimed at people who have an active lifestyle and a taste for adventure.

"In this regard it is perfectly matched to the aspirational lifestyles of the target groups but more than that it offers a quality alternative to those customers who live urban lifestyles and fully appreciate the high seating position, extra space, versatility and go-anywhere nature of an SUV."
