Opel Mokka is a popular compact crossover that has successfully managed to sell over 500,000 units in Europe.
The company has felt that this is the best time to refresh the lineup with a new launch which will be showcased to the world at the Geneva Auto Expo.

They have also confirmed the new X brand concept will be used in all future models, including SUVs and crossovers. The horizontal grille in the SUV now looks like a wing and some plastic components are used in specific places. The double wing signature has also been retained in the LED daytime lights Opel designers added that they are aiming to achieve a muscular design with a wider body and construction.
Opel is trying to adopt the double wing design in the entirety of the vehicle including the tail lamps, LED headlights and additional features. The vehicle’s palette has been expanded further with two different colors including the Amber Orange and the Absolute Red besides the variants already available in the earlier model.
