Opel's New Mokka, The Encore's Cousin From Accross The Pond
The Buick Encore’s European cousin Under the Opel brand has been officialy name Mokka, a name originally rumored to be used on Opel’s upcoming Supermini, dubbed Project Junior. The Mokka will bow at Geneva a few months after we see the North American Encore for the first time.New information about the Mokka has leaked, which helps paint a better picture of what we will see when the curtains are pulled back from Buick’s upcoming crossover. The Car’s length will be around 14 feet long, and may be priced In the $23,000 USD range, Both the Encore and the Mokka will offer all-wheel drive as an option. The Car is now confirmed to be riding on the Gamma platform with the Sonic and the Corsa. Rumor has it Opel is going after cars like the Nissan Juke and the Skoda Yeti with the Mokka, which is interesting because a few months ago there were rumors floating around that Chevrolet would launch a sub-equinox model in NA to compete with the juke. So there is more evidence that we will see A Chevrolet version, possibly carrying the Strobe Moniker in the near future.
