In breaking news following last week's announcement of keen pricing on the Vauxhall Mokka, there's even keener pricing on a fourth line of trim aimed at company car drivers. While the private customer-focused models start from £16,995, the new Tech Line trim variant will be priced from £15,995 and, like the rest of the range, will be in showrooms in November with order books now open.
The Tech Line trim is already available in Vauxhall's Astra and Insignia line-ups and now it's on offer with the Mokka baby SUV, which Vauxhall is putting out there as a challenge to the likes of the Nissan Juke and the Skoda Yeti.
There are three engines, ranging in power from 113bhp to 138bhp, and the choice of FWD or AWD. Two gearboxes are available - a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic, although the all-wheel-drive is manual only.
The entry level 1.6-litre engine has 114lb-ft of torque and combined economy of 43.5mpg. The most potent petrol engine is the 1.4-litre 138bhp turbo with standard four-wheel-drive. The diesel versions both use Vauxhall's 1.7-litre CDTi engine with CO2 emissions at 124g/km.
Standard equipment is pretty handy for a car in this price range and includes sat-nav, DAB, air conditioning, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, a stop-start system and 18-inch alloy wheels. It could be a canny choice and one worth suggesting to the boss if your company car is due an upgrade.
