Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 40 - 68 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Vauxhall Mokka running costs will be low thanks to a combination of good economy, sensible road tax costs, wide service intervals and the car's "Lifetime" warranty. Vauxhall's servicing costs aren't overly expensive either, further helping keep costs down.

It's worth noting that higher specification versions of the Mokka do have bigger tyres which will cost more to replace than the entry level model's. Bear that in mind if you're looking at a used example, as a set of replacement tyres will set you back a substantial amount.

The Mokka's green credentials are good. All Mokka models are relatively inexpensive to tax as even the least green version, the 1.6-litre petrol, emits 153g/km. Yearly tax bills won't break the bank as a result.

The cleanest version is the 1.7-litre CDTi front-wheel drive diesel model, which emits 120g/km of CO2. That helps keep overall Vauxhall Mokka emissions down.

If you're looking for the lowest road tax costs, or you're a company car driver, then the 1.7-litre CDTi diesel is the one to pick. It's also the most economical choice as it's claimed to average 62.8mpg.

A stop/start system comes as standard on all manual Mokkas, helping reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Vauxhall Mokka reliability should be good. The car feels robustly built and many of the mechanical parts have been well proven in previous Vauxhall models.

The company produces cars which are generally reliable, only sometimes suffering from minor problems and faults, so buyers should have little to fear on the reliability front if they're considering buying a Mokka.
