General Motors South Africa has confirmed that the Opel Mokka crossover will be heading to South Africa. Released in Europe a while ago, it was unclear whether GMSA would be bringing the vehicle to SA, but it has now been confirmed that the Mokka will indeed be heading to our shores.
The new Opel Mokka offers the high seating position, extra space, versatility and go-anywhere nature of an SUV, in a compact package with clever proportions. The Mokka has an aggressive design and sporty stance and is set to bring innovation and a quality motoring experience to those who live urban lifestyles.
Available for sale in the second quarter of 2015, the new Mokka range will offer a mix of exciting derivatives specifically designed to suit the varied needs of the South African compact SUV consumer and will be competitively priced while offering high levels of equipment and specification from the entry level up. The Mokka also brings an exciting and engaging driving experience, German engineering and innovative technology to the growing sub-compact SUV segment.
“Over 240 000 Mokka orders have been placed in Europe – this is not only an exceptionally important factor in the growth of the Opel brand on a global level, but also proves that Mokka is a worthy contender in a segment which is experiencing exponential growth all over the world. With Mokka we expect to see a new group of savvy consumers gravitate towards the Opel brand, who seek a fashionable sub-compact SUV which is exciting to drive and offers the solid quality and precision of a German-engineered product,” concludes Cradock.
Engines, specifications and model derivatives will be confirmed closer to the time of launch.
