New Mokka Awarded Top Gear’s “Design of The Year”

The New Opel Mokka has been awarded the 2021 Design of the Year Award by Top Gear.

At the Awards 2021 the magazine praised the Mokka for its assertive design that gives it pride of place, proudly on the road. The Mokka and the all-electric Mokka-e feature the new Vizor front end that integrates the LED headlights, “wing” signature lights and the all-new brand emblem into one, sweeping “glass like” module. The front end also houses a number of driver assistance and safety technologies, including forward collision alert and speed sign recognition.

The Vizor is Opel’s iconic new signature feature. It sleekly integrates many front-end devices, sensors and functions into a single, progressive array that is at the forefront of Opel vehicle design, both literally and emotionally.

​Mokka makes every journey more interesting - and with its supportive, sculpted seats and driver-seat massage function, it makes them more relaxing too. Travel in comfort, arrive in style. ​On a cold day, few things are more luxurious that a warm seat. Set Mokka’s front seats to three levels of cosines, while the driver enjoys an electrically heated steering wheel.

Jack Rix, Editor of Top Gear, said: “The Mokka has to be 2021’s most satisfying looking new car in a field that includes a bunch of supercars and fresh work from some heavy hitters. The basics here are super strong: the stance, proportions, surfacing and graphics are all undeniable. It’s assertive without looking angry, friendly without being cartoonish.”

Mark Adams, Opel/Vauxhall Vice President Design, said: “We are thrilled to hear that Top Gear has recognised the new Mokka as the recipient of its Design of the Year award. The Mokka features our new, bold and pure design language that will form the basis of all our models going forward. Receiving such high praise from a brand like Top Gear suggests our new design language is sitting well with both customers and critics, and we are excited to share more of our upcoming models in the future.”
