Vauxhall Opel are developing a sub-compact SUV based on the Corsa and called Mokka / Mocha which will debut at the 2012 Detroit Show.
Downsizing is all the rage as every day it gets more expensive to buy and run a car. But despite buyers looking for smaller and more economical cars, they want those cars to be smaller versions of what they’re used to, not cheap and cheerful runabouts.
That rush to downsize has seen car buyers take in droves to cars like the Kuga, Tiguan and ix35 as a cheaper to run and buy option to a full size SUV. And the new trend is to produce little urban warrior SUVs based on a sub compact size. Cars like the very appealing Nissan Juke and the soon to be launched new Ford EcoSport, which arrives at the Delhi Show next month.
Hot on the heels of the EcoSport will be the Vauxhall/Opel take on a small, urban SUV, based on the Corsa. It looks like this new Corsa SUV will be called Mocha (or Mokka, if you’re German). The Mocha is said to be 4.3 metres long, come with a 4WD option and cost from around £16k.
Expect to see the Mocha SUV in showrooms by the end of 2012.
