Vauxhall will follow up the latest Corsa with a new generation of Mokka X, expected to be revealed later this year – and new spyshots give the best glimpse yet of the small SUV's design.

Dropping most of the body camouflage from previous test cars, the winter testing prototype shows clear inspiration from the GTX Elemental concept of 2018 - particularly the bluff front-end and clamshell bonnet design. 

It also sits lower to the ground than the outgoing Mokka X, and also appears wider - suggesting its dimensions will be similar to the latest Peugeot 2008 with which it will share its it will share its CMP modular platform, alongside the Corsa, 208 and DS 3 Crossback

Snow covers the lower half of the rear end, although a short overhang taking inspiration from the larger Grandland X can be seen. Expect the interior to follow on from the recently launched Corsa, albeit with a greater emphasis on family versatility and space. 

Sitting on the latest CMP platform means it will likely be offered with the same powertrain options as the 2008. The brand has already confirmed it will feature an electric option, which is expected to be the 134bhp motor and 50kWh battery found in the other PSA models.  A range of about 200 miles is predicted. 

Alongside this, we will see both petrol and diesel engine options. The former will centre around a 1.2-litre three-cyliner turbo unit in multiple outputs, with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel also offered. 

Dates for the new Mokka X are not yet confirmed, but an unveil before the end of the first half of 2020 is likely, with first examples arriving in showrooms before the year is out.

 And where's it going to be built?, it looks generic, a few style tweaks , a Griffin badge, will it sell?, yes, that's what we're told we should be driving, an SUV.

Sounds like you're insulting the intelligence of others. But I'll give you a chance.

Show us where it says we must drive SUV's.

Next time your out on the road, count how many SUV’s you see , say count twenty cars and see how many are SUV’s, you’ll be surprised.

People generally buy what they want to buy, the odd few sheep herd along with others and buy what somebody else has on their drive. I drive an SUV because I find getting in and out of it is easier and I like the higher driving position, it costs me more in BIK but that is the bullet I bite for convenience. BTW my 82 year old dad likes the ingress/egress feature.
Cavellini talks shite for the sake of it.

COMING SOON TO A SCHOOL-RUN NEAR YOU!

For people that saw the Vauxhall Astra and wondered "yes, that's the car for me. But is there a version that's worse to drive, more expensive to run, more expensive to insure, worse looking but a bit higher up?"

Looks like it will be occupying much the same space in the range as the Crossland?

I hope this represents a break in recent form for Opel Vauxhall. I can't remember the last time they launched anything that received more than a lukewarm reception.... it's like they've forgotten what it takes to build a truly competitive new car. Fingers crossed it sells because it's good, not because it's on a BOGOF....
