And who really cares what others think? It's quite pathetic. Grow some balls and have some confidence..
Exactly, people have to accept that others may have different needs or preferences without going into assumptive stereotypes that say more about them than about the imaginary demographic they're trying to put down for insecurity reasons.

Surely the question is “Why does Anyone have a Mokka?!?!?”

They like it?
It was good value?
The salesman was nice?
It fitted their needs?

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?
They have sold something like 900,000 Mokkas in Europe. Based on a population of 738,000,000 we see that everyone doesn't have one.

Approximately 0.0012% of the Euopeans have one.

A better question, given the numbers, would have been 'Why do I see so many Mokkas when, actually, virtually nobody owns one?'

Edit: Euro sales figures not world

Didn't the same OP have a post about how great the design of the Mokka is a few weeks back ?

We get it, you like your Mokka, not everyone will we all want different things from cars.

Mokkas, quashkais etc are popular as they are aimed to a market where people want 4 doors and a high driving position, both a cheap route into that market.

They are good in the same way a ham sandwich is good, if im hungry it fills the void, does what I need.
However if I were ordering my last meal it would be a smoked brisket or a fillet steak Cos that's more than just ticking the box... Since many of us like cars and enjoy driving the Mokka doesn't tick the right boxes

Yeah, well I can play the stats game too.

I did a survey of a neighbour. He has a Mokka.

Therefore based on the data, taking a sample size of one, 100% of people have a Mokka.

It's in the data. You can't argue with it.

Well I live in a village where most are elderly, there is only one Mokka here. We do have several Focus STs, E Classes, GLAs and Micras though

Hi GeorgeMokka, it's been a while!

I don't think I've seen or thought about a Mokka since your previous exciting posts some months ago, so thank you for prompting me to do a quick google images this morning to remind myself what one is.

I look forward to future in-depth posts from yourself on the virtues and merits of the Mokka. Your focus to the subject matter is to be commended.

I had one as a hire car, was easily the worst car I've ever driven, think it was a 1.0L petrol auto.
You clearly haven’t driven many cars. Dull, boring, and uninspiring they may be, but they aren’t the worst.

As everyone knows, the real world value comes from metadata analysis. So based on all the studies reported, the TRUE percentage of people in Europe who own a Vauxhall Mokka is 50.006%

So that answers OP's question. You see so many because just over half of the population owns one. biglaugh

I bought an Insignia B, last December because it's a much better car than people think.

However, it had to go back in to sort a boot leak (understatement) and I was given one of the staff's high spec Mokka X for a week. It was as horrible as I envisaged and I still don't understand SUVs. Despite free reign, I could only bring myself to drive it on two occasions and I couldn't get past how ungainly it looked.

Not being diplomatic, I provided a free review of the car, on return. Yet the Vauxhall salesman said they fly out of the showroom and selling them is like shelling peas. So the mystery remains.

Cheaply made and sold to rental companies for half list price then at 6 months old people that have no interest in cars buy one as it looks safe and sensible and is half the price new.

That and Motability customers who have always had Vauxhall’s but don’t need a Zafira anymore.

I thought they were just rental cars / motability? Surely no one actually buys them?
