One of the most expected models in Opel’s lineup, the Mokka SUV, will be officially presented to the public on the 6th of March, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

After starting its life as a rumor and with GM officials denying that it’s real, the Opel Mokka, or the Corsa based SUV as it is also being known, is close to making its world debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show on the 6th of March, and the German based automaker is placing it into the spotlights one last time. The Opel Mokka is based on the GM’s Gamma II platform, just like the Buick Encore, and the platform is also underpinning the future generation of the Corsa, but it can already be seen on the new Chevy Aveo / Sonic.

The Opel Mokka will come as a five-seater and it will be 4,280 mm long and 1,645 mm high, with 1,540 mm front and rear tracks and a 2,555 mm wheelbase. Under the hood, the Opel Mokka is expected to come with a choice of three engines, the 1.6 liter naturally aspirated, with its 117 HP, the 1.4 liter petrol turbocharged, with 142 HP and the 1.7 liter CDTi turbodiesel, with 132 HP and 221 lb-ft of torque.
