The new Mokka-e wears its heritage confidently, touches of the classic Manta A evident across the distinctive new Opel Vizor face. The carmaker hinted at back-to-the-future design changes with 2018’s GT X experimental concept car; with the Mokka, these are realized in a brawny, droolworthy package complete with contrasting roof and bonnet and sleek accent lines up the sides. The power theme carries over inside, which Opel refers to as being digitally detoxed. With the clutter cut away, the focus turns to the double-screen digital Pure Panel display, where clean lines and minimal readouts dominate. Rear legroom is rather limited, but there’ll be no complaints from the front seats. German utility comes to the fore in adaptive cruise control, Active Lane Positioning, and a 180-degree rear-view camera.
