The Mokka – like the Corsa- continues to be available with petrol, diesel and electric power options

Vauxhall has “updated and simplified” the Corsa and Mokka range believing the changes will make the two most popular cars in its line-up “more appealing than ever”.

Available to order now, and with deliveries expected from August, the revised Corsa model range will start from £17,340 and the Mokka from £22,265.

The new range comprises ‘Design’, ‘GS Line’ and ‘Ultimate’ trims, with all including alloy wheels and a number of driver assistance safety technologies as standard.

Petrol and diesel-powered Corsa and Mokka cars will be sold in three derivatives, with ‘GS Line’ and ‘Ultimate’ reserved for electric examples of the supermini and crossover.

The changes mean the Corsa – the UK’s best selling car last year – has been streamlined from 15 models to eight, while the Corsa-e has been reduced from three models to two. Mokka customers, meanwhile, now have 11 instead of the previous 16 choices, and two instead of four Mokka-e selections.

Standard equipment for ‘Design’, which replaces ‘SE Edition’ and costs £500 less than the outgoing car, includes automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance and a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

‘GS Line’ replaces ‘SRi Edition’, with 17-inch black wheels, climate control, rear parking sensors and black exterior styling all included in the £19,490 price – a saving of £1,000 compared to before. This grade also gives customers access to a 72bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine that wasn’t previously available on ‘SRi Edition’.

‘Ultimate’ variants remain identical to the current ‘Ultimate’ range but the pricing has been slashed by £3,150 and now starts at £23,375. These cars get adaptive cruise control, lane positioning assist, adaptive LED Matrix lights, front parking sensors, a panoramic rear-view camera, keyless entry, Alcantara trim, heated seats and a heated steering wheel. 

As for the Mokka, entry level ‘Design’ models start at £22,265. Superseding ‘SE Edition’, it has the same like-for-like specification but introduces a 127bhp 1.2-litre petrol that can be paired to either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic.

Standard features include lane departure warning, lane keep assist, speed sign recognition, automatic emergency braking, cruise control, automatic lights and wipers, high beam assist, LED headlights and tail lights, and a ‘Pure Panel’ configuration that marries two 7-inch colour screens.

‘GS Line models’ take the place of ‘SRi Premium’ and these are identifiable from their two-tone styling, 18-inch bi-colour alloy wheels, black roof and mirrors, and sporty body kit.

Climate control, keyless start and power folding door mirrors, rear parking sensors and the upgraded ‘Pure Panel’ configuration that upsizes the driver display to 10-inches and the infotainment screen to 12-inches, also feature. Prices start from £24,640 – £1,500 lower than before. 

Finally, ‘Ultimate’ Mokka cars are now available with a 1.2-litre petrol motor. Priced from £28,825, upgrades include Alcantara seat trim. keyless entry and start, adaptive LED headlights, advanced park assist, blind spot alert, adaptive cruise control and lane positioning assist.

Adam Wood, the Marketing Director of Vauxhall, said: “We’ve introduced our new simplified trim structure to the Corsa and Mokka vehicle ranges.

“In doing so, we’ve not only made it easier for buyers to understand the key differences between various trims, but the models are now even better value thanks to a number of pricing enhancements.”
