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, although the larger Grandland X SUV achieved 7th spot on a 75-car list. Vauxhall itself finished in a disappointing 24th place out of 29 manufacturers, but will be aiming for improved customer feedback and sales success under its new owners.

Euro NCAP awarded the Mokka a four-star safety rating. 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. However, protection of the driver's chest and legs was rated as only marginal.

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.
