In spring, those at Opel will attack small SUV market with a new model (with a funny name for Romanian) Opel Mokka. His brother American, Buick Encore has already been inaugurated in 2012 in Detroit these days. Let’s see what it is.
Rumors of an Opel Antara SUV, lower than circulating on the internet a while, but things were not clear than when the Buick people started teasing campaign for their new Buick SUV Encore. A model was clear that it will have an Opel correspondent in Europe.
Germans did not stay long on the first thoughts after “cousin” Buick in Detroit in 2012, so now we have the first photos of the new Opel Mokka. The small SUV has serious intentions, attacking a model in appearance, gave rise to many jokes because of the nonconformist appearance, but the childish name remains Nissan Juke .
Mokka is based on Opel’s Corsa technical platform and measures 31 cm less than Antara, with a length of 4.28 meters, so well suited to urban traffic, than Juke (4.13 meters long), Mitsubishi ASX (4.3 meters long) or Dacia Duster (4.31 meters long).
Although the value of Mokka’s wheelbase was not communicated yet, we quickly forget about his brother Buick Encore, which has a distance of 2.55 meters between the axles, while gauges front / rear of 1.54 meters. Therefore, both Encore and Mokka promises enough interior space, especially the interior ergonomics boasts no fewer than 19 storage spaces for small things.
