The Mokka powered by the 1.7 liter CDTI (96 kw/130 hp) six-speed manual, front-wheel drive powertrain emits 120 g/km CO2 and consumes 4.5 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (52.3 mpg US), combined cycle. The engine generates maximum torque of 300 N·m (221 lb-ft).
Customers can also opt for an automatic variant of the FWD diesel powertrain. This version uses 5.3 l/100 km (44.4 mpg US), equivalent to 139 g/km CO2. An all-wheel drive (AWD) version of the 1.7 CDTI Mokka is also available.
On the gasoline side, the 1.4-liter turbocharged Mokka variant with 103 kW/140 hp, a six-speed manual gear box and AWD as standard uses 6.4 l/100km (36.8 mpg US), combined cycle, with emissions as low as 149 g/km CO2. Torque is 200 N·m (148 lb-ft).
Entry-level customers can purchase a 85 kW/115 hp 1.6-liter gasoline variant.
Apart from front-wheel drive (FWD), the Mokka can be fitted with an all-wheel drive (AWD) technology for better traction and handling. The AWD technology is only activated on demand. Torque distribution can be varied seamlessly from 100-0 to 50-50 when there are low grip conditions. Overall, the driver benefits from a system that adapts automatically to the prevalent road conditions. So even in low grip situations, the vehicle remains stable.
