Safety in depth

Opel Safetec® is a fully comprehensive safety system integrating and synchronizing all aspects of active and passive safety for maximum security in any situation. Every Opel vehicle begins with a rigid safety frame. To this are added energy absorbent bumper systems with crash boxes front and rear, progressively deformable structures and high tensile steel side protection bars. The design and structure of these elements also means that the Opel Mokka meets all pedestrian safety standards.

 

A major advantage of Opel technology is that in low speed impacts deformation damage is minimized, so keeping repair costs down. For example the bumpers are self-repairing with impacts at under 4 km/h. In addition the Opel Mokka also meets RCAR (Research Council for Accident Repairs) standards to reduce damage and deformation at low speed collisions, reducing insurance costs in several European countries.

 

Other passive safety systems include smart seatbelt front and rear, dual pre-tensioned front seatbelts, with front side and curtain airbags. In addition there is the pedal release system that protects against lower leg and foot injuries in major impacts. For child safety the front passenger airbag is key switch deactivated and there are Isofix child seat mountings on the two outer rear seats.


Opel Mokka - Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL+)

Improved Adaptive Forward Lighting Plus

Controlled by speed, steering input, and electronics, Opel Mokka’s advanced AFL+ system automatically selects from nine different headlight patterns, each designed to provide optimum illumination without dazzling other drivers.

 

The benefit: less stress, more safety.

Cruise Control with speed limiter

Speed limits and speeding tickets are a fact of life. The speed limiter function enables you to avoid tickets by setting a maximum speed upwards from 25 km/h. This can be overridden by fully pushing the accelerator pedal down, in which case a warning is displayed in the Driver Information Center (DIC). The speed limiter function is automatically reactivated after any deceleration or braking, ensuring you stay below the speed limit.

Hill Start Assist

HSA does exactly what the name says, so you can start and park easily on hills without using the handbrake. For a few seconds it automatically holds the brakes for you, to stop you rolling unintentionally backwards or forwards.
