Vauxhall Mokka Colour Guide: Which Should You Choose?

Here’s a detailed look at the paint palette available on the Vauxhall Mokka 5-seater compact crossover, and its all-electric derivative in the form of the Mokka-E, which we hope will help you choose your perfect new car colour.

There are 6 main paint options for the Mokka/Mokka-E, comprising 1 solid paint (called ‘brilliant’ by Vauxhall), 3 2-coat metallic paints and 2 further 2-coat premium metallic paints. Once you get to GS Line level and above, the Vauxhall Mokka/Mokka-E comes with a contrasting black roof as standard, for a 2-tone appearance. There are also further roof, window line and body decal/personalisation options to get the Vauxhall crossover looking just how you want it, which we cover beneath the main body colours. Besides the exterior hues, we also outline the various interior upholsteries that go with these paint finishes.

Paint Types

Solid = A simple body colour with no additives in the paint. Usually comprises 3 coats, these being a primer, then the paint, then a clear, protective lacquer. Solid paints aren’t particularly shiny and are normally the only standard/no-cost colours offered by manufacturers.

Metallic = Same application process as above but the paint now has powdered metal mixed into it, which reflects more light to give the car a shinier appearance. Metallic finishes usually cost more than solid paints.

Pearlescent/Mica = As above, only instead of metal, ceramic crystals (known as ‘mica’) are added to the paint. These not only reflect light but refract it too, giving one colour different appearances in different levels of light. They’re normally as expensive as or pricier than metallic paints.

Matte = Uses special ‘flattening’ agents in the paint/layering make-up to give the car a non-reflective appearance, and sometimes an unusual texture too. These are normally the most expensive and rarest of paint options, and are not offered on many new car models.

Exterior

Jade White

01. Jade White brilliant

Type: Solid (brilliant)

Cost: No cost (default colour on all models)

Available On: All models

Vauxhall kicks off with a colour that many other automotive manufacturers use as their ‘free’ paint these days – white. In this case, Jade White ‘brilliant’, as Vauxhall calls it, but don’t be fooled; it’s still a solid finish. As ever with white, it looks brilliant (ahem…) when it’s clean, and particularly good against the black contrast roof and detailing of all versions of the Mokka/Mokka-E bar the base-spec Design cars, but it’ll almost immediately show up the dirt all year round, meaning you’ll be washing Jade White a lot if you want it looking its best.

Quartz Grey

02. Quartz Grey 2-coat metallic

Type: 2-coat metallic

Cost: £600

Available On: All models

On the lighter side of grey and veering towards being silver, Quartz Grey is nevertheless a smart colour that will need minimal maintenance all-year round to look good. It’s 1 of 4 colours that are offered on all models of the Mokka/Mokka-E line-up, as the mid-grade GS Line-spec cars – the sportiest versions of the Vauxhall crossover – aren’t sold in the blue or the green. Quartz Grey is a duo-coat paint finish and costs a chunky £600 if you want it.

Voltaic Blue

03. Voltaic Blue 2-coat metallic

Type: 2-coat metallic

Cost: £600

Available On: Design and Ultimate only; not available on GS Line

A beautiful, rich, midtone blue, it’s a real shame that Voltaic Blue is 1 of 2 colours that is, weirdly, excluded from the selection palette if you are a GS Line buyer. Otherwise, this is a finish that will suit both the base-spec Design cars, which have a non-contrast roof, and also the Ultimate range-topper, which comes with a contrast finish as standard. Voltaic should also manage to remain respectable, even when covered in a layer of road grime.

Diamond Black

04. Diamond Black 2-coat metallic

Type: 2-coat metallic

Cost: £600

Available On: All models

Black. It’s as predictable as night following day that all cars will have a black option, even if it’s a paint finish that actually shows up more winter road filth than you’d imagine. The choice for the Mokka/Mokka-E buyer is Diamond Black, the last of 3 £600 2-coat metallics and 1 of the 4 paints available on all trim grades of the crossover.

Mamba Green

05. Mamba Green 2-coat premium metallic

Type: 2-coat premium metallic

Cost: £700

Available On: Design and Ultimate only; not available on GS Line

This is a doozy of a finish and something of a signature paint for the Vauxhall crossover, which makes it such a shame that it’s another option which is denied to GS Line customers. Mamba Green is a fantastic, bold colour and will work particularly well on the zero-emissions Mokka-E, if you want to (not-so-subtly) reinforce the message that you’re doing your bit to save the planet by dropping the internal combustion engine like a hot stone. Mamba will truly pop in bright sunshine when it’s clean and it should still turn heads even if you don’t wash the car every weekend throughout the bleak winter months. However, as a premium version of the 2-coat metallic paint, it commands an extra 100 notes over the other paints and will therefore set you back an additional £700 if you want it instead of Jade White.

Power Red

06. Power Red 2-coat premium metallic

Type: 2-coat premium metallic

Cost: £700

Available On: All models

A strong, lustrous red that’s arguably a bit brighter in reality than the Vauxhall configurator makes it appear to be. As it is the only non-monochrome colour (i.e., it’s not white, black or grey) available for the GS Line models, it’s almost certainly going to be the best pick for those sporty-grade Mokkas. Other than that, it should shine and sparkle when it’s clean, and also look fine when it’s a bit grubby from winter road use, so it’s a good choice for the Mokka. Apart from the fact that it, like Mamba Green, is a meaty £700 option.

Further Exterior/Interior Design Options

In order to appeal to a more youthful market than its predecessor, the Mk2 Vauxhall Mokka has a wide array of personalisation options which can dot the exterior (and even bits of the interior which are visible from outside the car – see below) with extras splashes of colour. Here’s a brief rundown on what’s available.

Black Roof

Cost: No cost

Available On: GS Line and Ultimate models

Apart from the base-spec Design cars – a trim level only available with petrol and diesel engines anyway, meaning if you’re after a Mokka-E you’ll definitely be having either a GS Line or an Ultimate – the standard roof finish is black. This counts even if you order Diamond Black paint, which of course lessens the effect of the 2-tone appearance.

White Roof

Cost: £300

Available On: GS Line and Ultimate models

For a £300 uplift on the top 2 grades of Mokka and Mokka-E, you can have the roof switched to white. However, you can only have this on 3 of the 6 colours offered, with Jade White, Voltaic Blue and Mamba Green all excluded from having a white roof. This means all of Quartz Grey, Diamond Black and Power Red CAN be teamed with a white roof, and therefore the GS Line customer doesn’t miss out on any white-roofed goodness when compared to an Ultimate buyer.

Red Roof

Cost: £300

Available On: GS Line models only

This daring option is for the GS Line models only, so not even Ultimate buyers can specify this choice. It costs the same £300 as a white roof and it is also excluded from 1 of the 4 colours offered at GS Line level – that being Power Red, for obvious reasons. So you can only have a red roof on a white, grey or black Mokka/Mokka-E, which kind of makes sense.

Black Bonnet

Cost: £200

Available On: GS Line and Ultimate models

For slightly less money than it costs to have your roof in an optional contrast finish, an additional £200 at ordering time will let you paint the bonnet of your Mokka/Mokka-E black. There are no specific exclusions listed by Vauxhall here, save for the fact you can’t option it on the Design base cars – oh, and it would also be pretty pointless asking for this if you’re going for a Diamond Black body anyway. Furthermore, it appears to be mutually exclusive to the white or red roofs, so you can only have a black bonnet with the standard black roof of the GS Line and Ultimate Vauxhalls.

Upper Window Line

Colours Available: Chrome, Red, Black

Cost: No cost

Available On: All models

The detail above the windows changes colour on the Mokka range, depending on the spec and/or body colours. So, as standard, the base Design and flagship Ultimate models get a chrome design line here, whereas the GS Line has a bright red flash in its place. However, for the GS Line, if you specify a Power Red body, the window line changes to black – and you can have this black design feature as a no-cost option on the other 3 GS Line body colours that would come with the red line as standard… if you follow us.

Bonnet & Roof Decals

Colours Available: Black, White

Cost: £244 (Black), £271 (White)

Available On: All models

As part of the accessories range for the Mokka, once you’ve chosen all the permanent features above (body colour, roof colour, upper window line finish), you can then go further with a range of personalisation options. First up is a set of racy decals which go on the bonnet and roof. Because a black roof is much more common in the Mokka/Mokka-E range than the white, it’s the white decals which cost £27 more than the black set. Again, there are no specific exclusions here, but it would be daft to put the black roof decals on the black roof/bonnet, or white decals on a white roof, for instance.

Side Stripes

Colours Available: Black, White

Cost: £222 (Black), £256 (White)

Available On: All models

To go with the decals which sit on the upper surfaces of the Vauxhall crossover’s bodywork, there’s also a side-stripe package in the same choices of white or black. This sits on the vehicle’s shoulder-line and, again, white is more expensive, this time by £32 – we can’t work out why this might be, as both would be a great contrast to all of the body colours offered (except on their own respective paint finishes, obviously).

Exterior Mirror Covers

Colours Available: White, Carbon Finish, Red, Blue, Green, Orange, Grey (matt-effect)

Cost: £111 (all colours)

Available On: All models

After the stickers, now come some bright mirror and wheel covers. First up, for the exterior mirror caps, is a wide array of brightly coloured covers, plus a ‘carbon-look’ finish if you so want it. All of these cost £111 and they appear to be available to owners of Design cars, not just GS Line and Ultimate models.

Wheel Centre Caps & Clips

Colours Available: White, Gloss Black, Red, Blue, Green, Orange, Grey (matt-effect)

Cost: Set of 4 wheel clips = £32-£36; single wheel clip = £20; single centre cap = £15

Available On: GS Line and Ultimate models (requires 18-inch bicolour alloys)

The same array of colours is available for the wheel centre caps and clip packs, albeit the carbon-effect finish of the door mirrors is replaced by Gloss Black here. This is an accessory reserved for non-Design customers, as the 18-inch wheels are required to fit any of these items. The wheel clips go between the spokes and are quite daring, and you can choose to have a set of 4 (1 for each wheel) at between £32 and £36 for the lot, or just 1 clip on its own for £20; so the bundle looks great value. As for the centre caps, they are £15 apiece – there is no discount for buying 4 of them in one go.

Interior Rear-View Mirror Cover

Colours Available: White, Red, Blue, Green, Orange

Cost: £64

Available On: GS Line and Ultimate models (requires interior automatic anti-dazzle mirror)

The only interior mod which can be clearly seen from outside is this accessory, which – again – requires you to be at either GS Line or Ultimate trim levels, as it is solely for the automatic anti-dazzle interior mirror, which isn’t fitted to the basic Design Mokkas. Anyway, for £64, upper-level customers of the crossover have a choice of a white, red, blue, green or orange interior mirror cover available if they fancy it.

Interior

Edition fabric – Jet Black

Type: Cloth

Cost: No cost

Available On: Design

Available With All Body Colours?: Yes

Like many manufacturers these days, Vauxhall offers specific interior themes at fixed trim levels – so there’s no way of having the interior of a GS Line in a Design or an Ultimate Mokka/Mokka-E, for example. Kicking off the line-up is the Design’s cabin, which features Jet Black fabric. However, it’s not too sombre in the interior as a result, as there are light-grey highlights on the edges of the seat bolsters, a colour which is repeated for the door-card centres, while the pattern on the seat fabric itself is vaguely reminiscent of hourglasses. Nice.

Jet Black and Minstral Red fabric with leather-effect inserts

Type: Cloth and man-made leather

Cost: No cost

Available On: GS Line

Available With All Body Colours?: Yes

Full ‘sporty’ here, with flashes of Minstral Red in the seats picking up the bright red highlights of the Mokka GS Line’s dashboard. The seat fabric also looks plusher in the GS Line than it does in the Design, while man-made leather inserts feature on the chairs themselves. Another change here is that the light-coloured headlining and door cards of the Design model are replaced by darker items on the GS Line, so the ambience is a little more subdued in here.

Black Alcantara with premium leather-effect side bolsters

Type: Alcantara and man-made leather

Cost: No cost

Available On: Ultimate

Available With All Body Colours?: Yes

Weirdly, despite the fact the GS Line is set up as the sportiest trim of the 3, it’s the Ultimate that gets the most desirable seats. Fabric is replaced by Alcantara, which also features on the door cards, while the side bolsters are now in ‘premium’-finish man-made leather. The red inserts of the GS Line’s chairs are replaced by white items here and there’s also contrast stitching to set everything off.

Jet Black full leather

Type: Leather

Cost: £600

Available On: Ultimate

Available With All Body Colours?: Yes

The only interior upgrade possible comes at Ultimate grade, where – for £600 – you can swap out the Alcantara seats for full, perforated Jet Black leather upholstery. Perhaps a bit contradictory, especially given the Mokka-E electric model is likely to be in this spec and will be bought by people who might be ant-cow-hide in ethos, but hey-ho. Even if you do upgrade to leather for the seats, the door cards remain Alcantara with this option.
