Adult occupant

The passenger compartment of the Mokka remained stable in the frontal impact. Protection of the passenger dummy was good for all parts of the body. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the front seat passengers. Opel showed that a similar level of protection would be available to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. The Mokka scored maximum points in the side barrier test, with good protection of all body regions. In the more severe side pole impact, protection of the chest was adequate and that of the head, abdomen and pelvis was good. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end impact.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used in the front passenger seat. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. The dangers of using a rearward-facing restraint in that seating positions without first disabling the airbag is clearly and permanently indicated.


The bumper scored maximum points, providing good protection to pedestrians' legs. However, the protection offered by the front edge of the bonnet was poor in all areas tested. In most areas likely to be struck by the head of a child, the bonnet provided good protection. In those areas likely to be struck by an adult's head, protection was good in some areas but poor or marginal in others.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on the Mokka and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. There is a standard-fit seatbelt reminder on the driver, front passenger and rear seats. The Mokka also has a driver-set active speed limitation device as standard equipment and the Mokka scored maximum points for Safety Assist.
