All I see on the road are Vauxhall Mokka’s and they seem like a pretty popular car but everyone I speak to always says how much they hate the Vauxhall Mokka even though they haven’t owned one.

So... why does everyone have a Vauxhall Mokka?

It's not as good as the Suzuki Cappuccino though.

Me neither. 6 or 7 SUVs in my close. None are griffin-badged.

I had one as a hire car, was easily the worst car I've ever driven, think it was a 1.0L petrol auto.

I have not noticed many, but suspect they are so mundane I do not notice them either.

Oddly, when I drive my wife's Nissan Note, I notice everyone has a Nissan Note too.

I had one for a few weeks when I started my last job and it's wasn't as hateful as I expected. The combination of a high driving position and reasonably punchy 1.4 turbo made it quite easy to live with. Yes, the handling is as vague as vague can be but I don't suppose that matters to its target demographic.

I was also rear-ended by a new driver during my time with the car. His Fiesta was written off, the only damage to the Mokka was a dislodged towing eye, so credit where it's due.

Puma ST not available yet?

Are they cheaper than the Qashqai and Juke? That may be a reason

Rumour has it that PSA bought Vauxhall/Opel to get their hands on the Mokka.

can't remember

No more an old person's car than most new white goods cars.

And who really cares what others think? It's quite pathetic. Grow some balls and have some confidence..
