The styling is a wild departure from the previous-generation Mokka, featuring chunky styling, sharp creases in the bodywork and a narrow headlight and grille design. Inside, there are two screens, one in front of the driver and the other in the centre console.

Technology on offer includes adaptive cruise control, LED headlights, 180-degree panoramic rear-view camera, and extensive safety equipment.

Pricing is yet to be revealed, but expect it to start at around £20,000.
