Now in its third year on the market, the Opel Mokka isn’t quite as fresh or as potent as its coffee-derived name might suggest. Good news then, as spy photographers recently caught the facelifted Mokka undergoing testing in Europe.
The 2017 Opel-Vauxall Mokka appears to have been treated to a nip-and-tuck job that looks unsurprisingly similar to the refreshed Encore we featured back in July. Heck, it even wears the same camouflage treatment and black exterior paint.
Under its cladding sits a new front fascia and a tweaked grill that also appears nearly identical to the one seen on its Yankee cousin.
In fact, the only immediately perceptible differences are the wheels; the Encore rolls on daintier seven-spoke rims while the Mokka wears thicker five-spoke blades. Squint hard and you’ll notice the headlamps also look a bit different, too.
While the aforementioned tweaks appear to be the only adjustments, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the production version roll out of the factory with a spruced up rear bumper and taillights.
Elsewhere, we expect to Opel to freshen up the interior with a new dash, a revised IntelliLink infotainment system, and some new upholstery choices.
2016 Mokka buyers may also find Opel/Vauxhall’s vaunted 1.0L turbocharged three-cylinder on the option sheet as well. You can have a look at photos of the shrouded Mokka right here.
