5 reasons to love and hate the Opel Mokka

Attitude to the Opel brand has always been ambiguous. On the one hand, it’s still “German”, and the German car industry should be treated with respect. And on the other – “German”, but not that. Neither the thoroughness of Mercedes, nor the driver’s refinement of a BMW or a Porsche … Again, there are enough evil tongues ready to repeat that “at the end of life, every car turns into an Opel”.
