Vauxhall Mokka X and Zafira Tourer reveal at Paris Motor Show


Vauxhall will reveal new versions of  the Mokka X and Zafira Tourer at next week’s Paris Motor Show, ahead of their dealer launch next month.

The Mokka X has a new interior and exterior design, a new powertrain and features OnStar and Apple CarPlay.

Since its launch in 2012 more than half a million have been sold in Europe and nearly 100,000 in the UK.

Incorporating cues from Vauxhall’s new design philosophy, the new Mokka X is the first model to introduce the ‘X’ segment identifier for future Vauxhall SUV and crossover vehicles.

The Mokka X’s new look is down to work carried out by a design team led by Britain Mark Adams.

Its new front includes a wing-shaped horizontal front grille and sharp double-wing signature of the LED daytime running lights.

At the rear is another double wing signature highlighted in the tail lamps, with LED technology an option. New colours include ‘amber orange’ and ‘lava red’.

On the inside, the Mokka X has a completely new dashboard inspired by the new Astra.

After introducing the much-lauded 1.6-litre ‘whisper diesel’ engine last year, the Mokka range is now extended further to include a new generation 1.4-litre direct injection turbo (152PS) petrol unit which first appeared in the Astra.

With a six-speed automatic transmission, adaptive all-wheel drive and start/stop, this Mokka achieves 43.5mpg and CO2 emissions of 150g/km.

LED adaptive forward lighting headlamps are another new addition.

The new AFL LED system adapts the headlights’ lighting patterns automatically to the driving situation so that the best possible light performance is given without dazzling other road users.

The new Vauxhall Zafira Tourer will be priced from £18,615 on-the-road.

New Zafira Tourer comes with a new exterior and interior.

The latest model comes with all the well-known features of its predecessor such as the Flex7 seating system, AGR front seats, the Flex-Fix bicycle carrier and FlexRide adaptive damping.

The new Zafira Tourer range includes Design, Energy, SRi, SRi Nav, SE, Tech Line, Elite and Elite Nav trim levels.

It features the latest generation Vauxhall IntelliLink infotainment systems with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and OnStar, including 4G/LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

Vauxhall has also introduced full LED adaptive forward lighting headlamps to the Zafira Tourer range.
