VXR stands for Vauxhall Racing, linked to performance, not a cosmetically Tarted up vehicle
that doesn't have an engine capable of any notable performance difference to their standard car, obviously people are falling for the Hype. People are welcome to them, this is my last genuine GM Vauxhall. Since PSA have taken over Vauxhall garages are finding difficulty in obtaining parts, a lot are on back order, as PSA won't let them hold stock and apparently
the cost has soared.

You should have read the whole article, they will be adding performance in different ways, so it's open to anything from turbo armrests to automatic lollipop sticks in the wheel spokes! Maybe even a chrome gated gearchange in the back for the kids to pretend they're VXR drivers too.

I did read it, and it is not unlike similar wild comments, they have come out with before,
Vauxhall can say what they want, but their hands are tied with PSA and they will do
as they are told, the way PSA want it, they don't have a free hand anymore like they
had with GM.
They say they are not switching UP the power plant, but it won't be embarrassed
with a Ford ST, what a load of waffle. Also from what I have read their first production
run is sold out, who in their right mind would buy a car they have never been near
or test driven.

I would think many founder members would be offended by that remark, as many did that very thing way back in July 2012. Order Forum Page 12

Sorry to say, I will stand by what I said, you don't buy a car, you may not like the feel
and fit of, when you get round to driving it, as it may be nothing like you imagined.
I would have thought that is common sense and I wouldn't pay anything up front for
something I have not tried and seen, especially a first production run which usually
have flaws.

Offended? Anybody who buys a new car without seeing it, let alone driven it ought to be ashamed, and this production run sold out, is more Bull, they sold them all but didn't carry on stamping them out? are they just doing production runs of three?

More hype from PSA --- the new mokka will never ever be anything other than a Pug with a Vauxhall badge on and UK deliveries are now going to be delayed maybe to September 2021, for those lucky punters who have ordered without seeing, driving or who have more money than sense I can only conclude that the peeps who are driving the GM mokka will steer clear of the new mokka big time because they cannot after years and years of mokka ownership sink to idea of owning a French Vauxhall 🇬🇧 🇬🇧 🇬🇧 😀

Now for a test drive in the MokkaE by an established reviewer (Nicki Shields with an open mind) as apposed to the doom/gloom musketeers on here.

The point is that the Vauxhall Mokka does not exist anymore and has now been replaced by French car maker who after taking happy pills truly thinks that a version of the 3008 really is a Vauxhall Mokka -- the great British public will I'm sure see through the fake Vauxhall ploy and if they really want a Pug will go direct to Pug dealer -- Vauxhall are dead, Vauxhall are gone, so hang on to your Mokka/Mokka X and enjoy it -- and it goes without saying that a French Mokka Owners Club will be born in the future and that will accommodate the true believers of the PSA hype

Well the first 30 seconds of what she says is absolute crap, and I mean crap, I switched it off after
hearing garbage like that, How much did PSA pay her to say what she did, she knows nothing,
the old Mokka's, at one point, happened to be the best selling SUV's in Europe,

Well apart from the anti PSA/conspiracy theorist/ chauvinistic replies, here is another very good report for the PSA Opel/Vauxhall Mokka road test, enjoy.

Looks and sounds like it is made for dwarfs, Corsa and Crossland has more room ???, looking at
his legs in the driving position, I wouldn't be able to get in the front with my long legs.(n)(n)(n)

Very interesting video -- what a joke that car is, if your over 5' 2" it's not the car for you and it's just confirmed what I've always thought -- :poop::poop::poop:
