In the past, ther have been ecoFLEX versions of the Mokka X, but with changes to emissions testing and the latest WLTP test regime, these are no longer available. The most economical Vauxhall Mokka X is the 1.6 CDTi Whisper Diesel in front-wheel drive form with a manual gearbox. It returns 50.4mpg and 127g/km emissions.

Opting for four-wheel drive on the 1.6 CDTi pushes emissions up to 142g/km, while choosing the automatic bumps this up to 143g/km. Fuel economy for both is rated at 47.1mpg, so they will cost more to run on a daily basis.

The 1.4 Turbo returns 39.2mpg and emitting 147g/km in front-wheel drive guise. Add an auto box, and emissions rise to 157g/km, while adding the 4x4 system raises emissions to 162g/km. Fuel economy for these two is 37.2mpg and 36.7mpg respectively.

Insurance groups

There’s good news here, as all Mokka Xs sit in insurance groups 14. This means any version should prove to be cheap to insure compared to the alternatives.

Depreciation

The main concern for private buyers will be the Mokka X’s weak residuals. Our experts predict it will retain less than 40 per cent of its value after three years. Vauxhall hopes that the growing desirability of the crossover, and the reasonably strong sales of the Mokka X in the UK, will boost this figure in years to come, although the Crossland X could well have an impact on these values as well.
