After starting its life as a rumor and with GM officials denying that it’s real, the Opel Mokka has been finally presented to the public in a world debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
The Opel Mokka, or the Corsa based SUV as it is also being known, is based on the General Motors’ Gamma II platform, just like the Buick Encore, and the platform is also underpinning the future generation of the Corsa hatchback, being also used in the new Chevrolet Aveo / Sonic. The urban crossover with the Opel badge on it is coming as a five-seater and it is 4,280 mm long, 1,645 mm high and from front to rear tracks the model has 1,540 mm.
Even if the Opel Mokka was officially presented to the public at the Geneva Motor Show, the car company didn’t announce more detail about it, but rumors are saying that under the hood, the all-new Opel Mokka is expected to come with a choice of three engines, a 1.6 liter naturally aspirated with 117 horsepower, a 1.4 liter petrol turbocharged unit, with 142 horsepower and a 1.7 liter CDTi turbodiesel with 132 HP and 221 lb-ft of torque. More details on the Opel Mokka will be announced close to its launch.
