Geneva Motor Show: Vauxhall Mokka

Get any sort of coffee jokes out of your mind before continuing with this one because we simply shan't indulge you. Vauxhall has launched its new compact crossover, the Mokka, at the Geneva show.

It's around the size of a Nissan Juke, which it will be squaring off with at launch in November.You'll get a choice of three engines at launch – a 117bhp 1.6-litre petrol, a 142bhp turbocharged 1.4-litre petrol or a 1.7-litre CDTi diesel unit with 132bhp and 221lb ft.

We've written about it before, and lauded it for its far, far bigger boot than the Nissan Juke - seats down, 1,372-litres to the Juke's 830-litres.

It's set to come with all manner of off-road trickery, though very few buyers will actually use it to its full potential.

There's no word on price just yet, but don't expect to get much back after handing over a crisp £15,000 note.
