With its elevated seating position, sporty look, and perfect size, the Mokka continues to be an appealing addition to the existing compact SUV segment. In fact, with over half a million units sold in Europe alone, there’s no doubt that it appeals even to the zeitgeist.  With the 2017 model now on its release list, Opel hopes to soar its popularity even further.

Opel Mokka Is A Rising Star

According to credible sources, the Opel Mokka 2017 is set to become one of the best-connected all-terrain eye-catchers in its class thanks to its fresh iconic exterior, new generation infotainment systems, and a new interior acting as a host to this segment’s best technologies and comfort necessities. In recent years, the Mokka has garnered quite a substantial following partly due to its genuine off-roading abilities, adventurous sporty flair, and stylish exterior designs.

The new model will be the first model offered by Opel to set the tone for all future Mokka-line products. The Opel Mokka X, for instance, is set to get even more adventurous, and rugged. The exterior isn’t the only area that the new model boasts about, the interior also is a design masterpiece. Recent spy pictures show a completely redesigned interior that is host to abundant technologies and features.

When To Expect Opel Moka To Be Released

While information regarding the Mokka release date and price are still under wraps for now, rumors trending in the compact SUV segment allege the new model will cost around $26,000 – fair price considering its competition. However, the price vantage might be compromised once a buyer selects the available options. It is set to go for sale sometime in the spring of 2017, at least according to sources in the know.

2017 Opel Mokka Exterior Design And Colors

The exterior design, to say the least, comes with a bold stance. Similar to the outgoing model, the new Mokka comes with a wing-shaped horizontal front grille, LED daytime running lights and foglights, less plastic inserts, and more elegant and precise sculpted surfaces. The rear features subtle design changes including a stouter stance. It also features athletic and muscular lower body lines, elegant and sculpted traits, and additional colors. The Absolute Red and Amber Orange make the latest addition to the palette.

New Opel Mokka Lighting

Plenty of innovative technology is available. To start off with, the new model is the first model in its class to offer adaptive forward lighting LED lamps. This system enables the best lighting regardless of the driving environment thanks to the automatic AFL LED system. Nine lighting patterns are available such as tourist mode, country light, town light, maneuvering light, a cornering and curve light, and a stop mode light. According to Opel, the new light system is reliable, accurate, and offers visual comfort, as the driver doesn’t need to keep adjusting the lighting for every driving situation.

Big Changes On 2017 Opel Mokka Interior

The interior also sees some changes over the previous model. For one, the interior ambiance has completely changed. The instrument panel is more precise and sharper in its execution. It also appears purer and simpler than before. The dashboard is all-new and Opel says it has derived its design inspiration from the new Astra. The smartphone integration system now takes most of what used to be operated by clattery control buttons. It might be an understatement to say that the new center stack has been redeveloped especially if you have some insights of the previous model’s interior design.

Just like the 2017 Opel Astra or the Opel Mokka X, the regular Opel Mokka will also be available with all Opel OnStar services. Smartphone enabled connectivity will be offered by the IntelliLink feature that features both the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay features.

Along with all the features mentioned above, the new model will also make no concessions on its comforts. Similar to most Opel models, the new Opel Mokka 2017 was tested and certified to have ergonomic seats. Again, there’s no doubt that the outstanding comfort features, off-road capabilities, outstanding connectivity, and superior powertrain lineup make the new Mokka superior amongst its class.

Engine Rumors

It is rumored that the new model will come boasting of a three cylinder 1.6L turbocharged engine capable of making 115 horsepower. Other possible choices – as Opel is yet to make the powertrains known – include the 140-horsepower – generating 1.7L turbocharged engine, and the 130-horsepower – producing 1.7L diesel engine.

Perfect Name

Judging from the available teaser photos flaunted by Honda and rumors from those in the know, the new Fit is expected to come with features such as a strong fuel economy, an amazing accommodating cabin, unmatched versatility, and excellent exterior visibility. See, the Fit has enjoyed quite a successful run ever since it was introduced to the U.S in 2006. In fact, it was for seven years named the “10-Best” vehicle by Car and Driver courtesy of its affordability, fuel efficiency, driving enjoyment, a high quality interior, and wealth of standard and available accessories.

While car names, more often than not, consist of alphanumeric jumbles, the “Fit” is the perfect literalism that best describes what the Honda Fit offers. After all, Honda is well known for the surprising versatility of its vehicles such as the Fit despite the meager dimensions. The pint-size hatchback body style offers an incredible space to pack most of your stuff. The head and legroom are also surprisingly decent. Thrown in the available standard features and technologies and you’ve got yourself a versatile vehicle without having to break the bank.

Interior Is The Same Size

Speculation is rife that the interior design will remain unchanged – not an issue if you ask me given the impressive layout design that the previous model featured. Upgrades to technologies and material quality should be expected nevertheless. The refreshments to the technologies and materials will go a long way in solidifying the Fit’s position in the highly competitive subcompact segment.

Competitors Are…

But even as we ponder about what the Honda Fit 2017 will offer, the segment is also home to other well-rounded options that, just like the Fit, have improved in leaps and bounds over the previous models they’re replacing. The Kia Soul, for instance, offers better cargo capacity; the Toyota Yaris is fresh and better priced; while the Ford Fiesta is fun-to-drive and fuel-efficient. But even with such stout rivals nipping its heels, the 2017 Honda Fit is an incredible option for those looking for versatility and efficiency on a budget.

Changes For The 2017 Honda Fit Release Date & Price

Pricing is expected to remain unchanged over the model it replaces, as the newest model doesn’t come with any evolutionary or revolutionary design changes. As such, buyers should expect a base price starting from $17,525 MSRP. As regards the release date, expect the Fit to go for sale sometime in mid-2017, probably as 2018 Honda Fit.

2017 Honda Fit Exterior

From the images trolling the internet, it is perfectly clear that the new Fit returns unchanged over the previous model’s design. What that means is that the new model will come with powerful lines flowing from the front and rear that integrate with the aerodynamic and purposeful design of the entire car. Rumor has it that it comes a better drag coefficient courtesy of the greatly improved exterior aerodynamics.

The color-matched, two-tone, black side mirrors, for instance, are specifically designed to lower the aerodynamic drag by reducing wind noise. The impact of this is expected to enhance the fuel economy figures even higher than before. Lighting is exclusively LED for the headlights, taillights, and foglights.

Changes For The 2017 Honda Fit Interior

Well, we’ll be lying to tell you the specific details of the interior redesigns that you should expect given the heavy guise the test mule is on. Having said that however, several upgrades should be expected to the material quality and technologies for purposes of making it look refreshing over its immediate predecessor.

Available Trims Are…

Honda is still mum on the number of trim levels to expect, as well as their names. If the current lineup carries over however, then we should expect five trims for the 2017 Honda Fit: Navi, EX-L, EX-L, LX, and EX.

Engine Specs

2017 Honda Fit engine

A carry over 130-horsepower – generating 1.5L four-cylinder engine should be expected for the new model. There’re rumors of a turbocharged engine although confirmations from Honda are yet to be offered. 32 mpg is the fuel economy for combined city/highway cruising.

New Safety Measures?

The existing Honda Fit got five out five star overall rating for crash impact safety. It is highly expected that the new model, too, will offer the same perfect scores once the government releases them during its release date.
