The Mokka X has been around in its current form since 2016, so a complete reboot has been on the cards for quite some time.
It was previously announced plans to replace their sub-compact SUV in 2019, when an all-new model will begin assembly at the Eisenach factory.
These are the very first images depicting the 2nd-gen car while undergoing cold weather testing in Sweden.
Following PSA’s acquisition of Vauxhall from GM, the new model is believed to be based on the PSA group’s CMP (EMP1) modular architecture for subcompact models instead of the current car’s GM Gamma 2 platform.
Unfortunately, the camouflage is very extensive and aside from its general shape and size, smaller headlights and seemingly larger-than-before grille, we can’t really make out any design traits.
The current Mokka X has been selling rather well, boasting features such as LED headlights and taillights, an Astra-like dashboard design, 7 and 8″ touchscreen displays, adaptive headlights and a bevy of active safety technologies, like the Traffic Sign Assistant, Following Distance Indication, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning.
For the all-new model, we’re expecting an increase in driver assistance systems, brand new interior and exterior designs, as well as some type of electrified powertrain joining the range, among all the diesel and petrol units.
