My Carbon flash techline was delivered on Tuesday, only done about 150 miles since then but I have to say I'm well impressed. Before the Mokka I've been driving the Mercedes A class (had 3 in the past 9 years) and now they changed the new A class into "car" rather than a small mpv so I needed to look for something with similar versatile interior and decided on the Mokka. At first I wasn't sure if I'd be comfortable with the move from Mercedes to Vauxhall but WOW! I'm truly impressed. The build quality is very good and I love the cocoa/dark Adriatic interior and ambient dash mood lighting. Wasn't sure if the 1.7TDI would pull as well as the 2.0CDI Merc and the test drive I did was in the 1.4Turbo but I was well surprised and amazed that the 1.7 is actually much quicker at acceleration than the Merc was by a long way and its returning better MPG, about 54mpg at the moment but this only with short runs so I'm sure it will be better than this as time goes by. The ride is very smooth and it's a pleasure to drive, road holding and cornering again is better than the Merc. The Mokka looks great and feels big on the road and its roomy inside, the seats are very comfortable and there is plenty of storage, the only small criticism I have is that the seatbelt is a little awkward to get hold of as the belt strap sits right up against the door pillar, other than that I can't fault the Mokka. Anyone waiting for delivery can take comfort in the knowledge that you are in for a treat. I almost feel like a teenager again driving the Mokka, especially as the DAB radio has the 80s channel! It's the kind of car that makes you look for some excuse to find somewhere to drive to. Road noise is more than acceptable and the diesel engine can't really be noticed once you are up to speed. Overall I'd give the Mokka top marks all-round!

I'm glad you are happy with the change and thank you for sharing your first impressions. I hope I get over 50mpg.

Can't wait to take delivery of my mokka and hope that I like it as much as you. I am sure that I will. I just hope tha I (and all the other mokka owners) don't have a problem with the afl's as no matter how good you think a car is you always get peeved if a problems persist.

I didn't order the AFL (extra on Techline). I think if customers had a choice on the SE they might not bother but as it's standard you are suck with it. It's a great feature but you never miss what you've never had.

Iceman, nice early review.I too had a Mercedes A-class a number of years ago (x-plate) and initially thought it was the bees knees. However after some time it started to have problems with the suspension struts breaking (I believe this was identified as a common fault) and nearly every mot resulted in a new strut being required. For this reason I decided to part with it and opted for a Vauxahll Zafira due to its added space and versatility, a decision I did not regret.

Having owned two Zafiras, late last year I decided for a model change and was looking for something with 4x4 capabilities but without the expense of a Land Rover or high running costs. Enter the Vauxhall Mokka 1.7CDTi 4x4. It immediately grabbed my attention and when I did some digging around to my surprise was affordable. The only thing I had to do was to convince the wife.
Now we are the proud owners of an Exclusive Mokka 1.7CDTi 4x4 parked on the driveway; a purchase ive not yet regretted

It's to know that you have been happy with Vauxhall (Zafiras) I think Vauxhall has come on in leaps and bounds over the last 2-3 years with the new models. The Mokka ticks so many boxes for performance, running costs, price and build quality. I particularly like the flat load area in the back with the seats folded down, a feature not many vehicles have and one that sold it for me.

I puzzle slightly at assertions that "Vauxhall" is either good, bad or improving. Taking the Mokka as the current example the only thing that is vauxhall about it is the name, badged as such so we in the UK feel some affinity towards it. In Europe it's an Opel, in the USA it's a Buick and apparently in Australia it will be a Holden. Adding to this is the fact of the GM owned Chevrolet brand getting in on the act with the soon to be available "Trax". The factory they're all built is in South Korea and is owned by General Motors as are all the brand names I mentioned

I think the assertion is that GM are getting their act together and building to a higher quality. Opel have a bad reputation in Europe, as does Buick in the states. I think Holden are one of the few GM brands to have a good reputation.

I thought Buick were seen as a prestige brand in the states above Chevrolet. They had the Saturn brand in the States until a year or so ago. I kept reading reports that GM were going to ditch the Vauxhall and Holden brands or rebrand them before a potential Opel sell off that never happened.

There are too many channels to count, probably 100 or more. The "absolute 80s" channel is the only 80s channel but there is also a 90s channel. I'm in the northeast up in Northumberland and the DAB reception is very good while driving (although I've not been far). In the remote regions and valleys it's much better compared to the FM radio that was in my old Merc. It's very easy to scan for stations and once stored they can be searched by type, rock, pop, classic, news and sport etc etc. I was actually a car audio technician a few years ago so I'm hard to please when it comes to audio but the Navi600 in the Techline has very good features and sound quality compared to many very high spec aftermarket units I have experienced. I pared the Navi600 to my Galaxy S3 with no problem and the system even found the phone book and listed all the stored numbers and contacts, you can also use voice commands to operate the phone features, very cool!

I've got 30 stations listed in one category alone, it was pre-programmed from the dealer so I obviously haven't listened to all or even looked at the other stations, in fact I have only listened to the 80s as I'm a big fan.

Definitely not 100, maybe 20-30
 
I agree, definateley nowhere near 100 down here in Ely, albeit i do get a few extra when in Cambridge, including Gaydio of all things.
If you want non stop dance, Gaydio is the station for you although the DJ conversation can be very different to X-FM ...

Another little update, drove last night on very icy and snow
covered roads and although I only have FWD and not 4WD the Mokka was very
stable on the road. What did strike me though was how you could quite easily be
fooled into in false sense of security. If you haven't driven any type of
"softroader" SUV before it could land you in trouble, I know it's
stating the obvious but I would want anyone crashing their new pride and joy
let alone getting hurt. The other thing I have noted (and has been noted on
other reviews) the car takes quite some time to come up to temperature and
although it is supposed to have an electric pre-heater the climate control
still takes a while to deliver warm air, just wondering how may have noticed
this?
