Vauxhall Mokka review - Reliability and safety

Reliability shouldn’t be an issue for the Mokka, while standard safety kit is excellent

With the Vauxhall Mokka drawing on shared technologies from Peugeot and Citroen, and particularly with its CMP platform in such wide use across the Stellantis Group, we’d expect the Mokka to prove itself as a reliable car.

The previous-generation Mokka didn’t appear in our latest Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, with only the Astra and Grandland X making the list lower down the order. Vauxhall itself finished in a disappointing 29th place out of 30 manufacturers, but will be aiming for improved customer feedback and sales success under its new owners.

Euro NCAP awarded the previous-generation Mokka a full five-star safety rating and the latest model should perform equally well. Safety kit is generous, with entry-level SE cars including a lane departure warning with a lane keep assist function, speed sign recognition, automatic emergency braking, a forward collision alert and a driver drowsiness alert.

Warranty

All Mokka models come with a standard three-year/60,000-mile warranty. Owners can extend this for an additional fee, choosing from three separate levels of cover: Complete, Standard and Essential

Servicing

The service schedule for the Mokka is every 12,500 miles or annually, whichever comes first, and Vauxhall offers individual service plans starting from £15 a month to help spread the cost of scheduled maintenance.
