Vauxhall Mokka 1.2 Turbo GS 5DR
Pack earmuffs. By modern standards the Mokka is freakishly noisy on the move, suffering from wind noise, road noise and grumbly engines. The 1.4 petrol is a sight quieter – and livelier – than the diesel, but still hardly whisper-hushed. Maybe we just had a couple of bad ‘uns, but we’d advise taking the Mokka out for a proper motorway blast to see if you can actually hear anything at 70mph before committing to purchase.
Even if your ears can handle the assault, the Mokka still doesn’t provide much fun in the handling department, riding clunkily even on modestly sized wheels and failing to deliver the honest, drive-it-on-the-doorhandles charm of the Yeti. All this comes with a proviso: Vauxhall says it’s rushed through upgrades for UK cars that cure these gripes. We shall see.
