2020 Opel Mokka X Review, Interior, Specs, Price

The Mokka is one of the company’s best-selling models and we are now expecting to see a completely new version, which is about to come as 2020 Opel Mokka X. The current model has been around since 2012, so it seems like a perfect time to see changes, especially if we consider that Opel is now in a process of switching to PSA’s mechanics. Therefore, count on a completely new mechanics, but on various design novelties as well. Of course, we are about to see new engines as well.

Another interesting novelty will be a change in size, as the 2020 Opel Mokka X is expected to be slightly bigger. Still, it will remain in the same segment, competing with other subcompact crossovers in the class. Latest reports suggest that the new model is in the late stage of development and that it should hit the market by the end of the year.

2020 Opel Mokka X Redesign

Many significant changes will happen with this redesign. As you probably know, Opel is no more part of General Motors. It now belongs to French giant, PSA Group, which includes famous brands Peugeot and Citroen. Therefore, its complete lineup is going to switch to PSA’s platforms in the upcoming years. In this particular case, we expect to see the company’s familiar CMP architecture, which underpins luxurious DS3 Cossack crossover as well. These two models should have a lot of things in common in the future. The new architecture will bring a lot of novelties and one of them is a change in size. The 2020 Opel Mokka X is about to get slightly bigger. Latest reports suggest one more inch in the wheelbase, which should provide more space on the inside, especially in the second row. Also, it is expected that the new model will be lighter, which should provide better efficiency, driving characteristics etc.

2020 Opel Mokka X Styling

Of course, the new model will come with a completely new styling as well. It will be very interesting to see a new styling approach, under the PSA Group. If we consider that the current generation is very successful, we may presume that the new model won’t be that big departure from the original. The overall shape should remain similar, while we expect to see a new design language. Count on a lower grille and lower overall stance. The front end should be inspired by the recent GT X experimental concept. Still, the rest of the body will be designed in a more traditional manner, in a typical crossover layout.

2020 Opel Mokka X Interior

When it comes to the interior design, we count on a completely new cabin. The first thing that comes to mind is the fact that the new model will be a little bit longer. Therefore, we count on a little bit more space inside the cabin. This particularly refers to the second row, which should offer more legroom. The cargo area should be more spacious as well. In terms of the overall cabin layout, we count on a completely new design, which will include a new dashboard, though we are still waiting to see some details.

2020 Opel Mokka X Engines

This will be one of the most interesting aspects of the 2020 Opel Mokka X. Count on a completely new lineup, which will consist familiar units from the PSA Group. Therefore, don’t expect any bigger surprises. Base versions should come with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder unit with around 110 horsepower. On the other side, the most powerful version should come with a new version 1.6-liter turbo-four, which delivers around 210 horsepower. Of course, we expect to see something between these two versions as well. Considering that Europe is primary market, count of familiar 1.6-liter HDi units in the offer. Count on a couple of different output versions, including the most recent version that delivers around 120 hp.

Latest reports also suggest massive electrification. The new 2020 Opel Mokka X will definitely come with a hybrid powertrain in the offer, though we still don’t know is it going to be ready for the initial launch. Eventually, we could see an all-electric version as well.

2020 Opel Mokka X Release Date and Price

If we can rely on the latest reports, the 2020 Opel Mokka X should arrive by the end of this year. When it comes to the price, we don’t expect a bigger departure from the current model, which starts at around 20.500 dollars.

Buick Encore

In North America and China, this crossover is sold under Buick Encore name. Considering that two nameplates won’t be corporal siblings anymore, we expect that GM will redesign this crossover on its own. Some reports suggest discontinuation, but given the model’s popularity in China, a redesign sounds more likely. So, count on a completely new design, based on some of GM’s new platform, significantly different from what we can see in the current-generation model.
