Opel News - Fully connected: The new Opel MOKKA X impresses with the latest generation IntelliLink infotainment systems and Opel OnStar

Rüsselsheim. The new Opel MOKKA X displays a bold attitude with its new exterior design. Inside, the highlights of the functional and neatly arranged instrument panel are the state-of-the-art IntelliLink infotainment systems. Together with the personal connectivity and mobility assistant Opel OnStar, they make the MOKKA X the best-connected compact SUV in Europe.

R 4.0 IntelliLink and NAVI 900 IntelliLink: MOKKA X is well connected

Opel News - Smartphone integration: The R 4.0 IntelliLink systems comes with a seven-inch touchscreen and is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Opel’s new generation IntelliLink infotainment gives owners a simple way to bring the world of smartphones and apps into their MOKKA X. In Germany, NAVI 900 IntelliLink is optionally available for €950, while R 4.0 IntelliLink is standard with the Edition equipment level.


The MOKKA X with R 4.0 IntelliLink features a seven-inch touchscreen as well as USB and Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone calls, audio streaming and looking at photos, videos and films. Like NAVI 900 IntelliLink, it is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


Android Auto is built around Google Maps, Google Now and the ability to talk to Google, as well as a growing audio and messaging app ecosystem that includes WhatsApp, Skype, Google Play Music, Spotify, and podcast players. A full list of supported apps is available at https://support.google.com/androidauto/


Apple CarPlay enables drivers to make calls, send and receive messages and listen to music right from the touchscreen or by voice via Siri. Apple CarPlay supported apps include Phone, Messages, Maps, Music and compatible third party apps. A full list of apps can be found at apple.com/ios/carplay.


Using either application in the MOKKA X is easy. A “Projection” icon on the infotainment touch-screen is visible when a phone is not connected, then changes to indicate either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto (whichever is applicable) when a compatible phone is connected via USB. Android Auto requires a phone running Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system or above, while Apple CarPlay requires an iPhone 5 or later (click here for a list of compatible phones http://www.opel.com/compatibility).


Navi 900 IntelliLink is for customers who prefer an integrated navigation system. Display and operation are via the eight-inch color touchscreen. IntelliLink enables audio streaming, having incoming SMS read aloud and voice control as well as watching films and videos – the former, of course, only when the car is stationary. The navigation system also features maps of more than 30 European countries and it can be displayed two or three-dimensionally according to personal preference and controlled via voice command. Sixty radio stations, destinations, contacts, telephone numbers or playlists can be saved as “Favorites”.


For connoisseurs of music, the MOKKA X with NAVI 900 IntelliLink is additionally available with a high-end Bose sound-system. Optional DAB+ digital radio further extends the range of radio stations and the audio quality.

Opel OnStar: Peace of mind for MOKKA X drivers

Opel News - Help is near: The personal connectivity and service assistant Opel OnStar is a 24/7 guardian angel and advisors are available at the touch of a button

With the personal connectivity and service assistant Opel OnStar, MOKKA X owners get a “guardian angel” at their side – 24/7 365 days a year. OnStar automatically reacts in an emergency. If the airbags are deployed in an accident, vehicle sensors automatically alert an OnStar advisor.


Automatic crash response is just one of the many innovative features of Opel OnStar, which makes driving more convenient and ensures best connectivity. The unique service with friendly advisors instead of machines also remotely unlocks doors, downloads destinations directly to the vehicle, sends emails on vehicle health and (subject to availability) offers a 4G/LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.


The most popular OnStar service is the myOpel mobile app, which enables remote locking/unlocking of doors, online vehicle location and honking the vehicle’s horn and flashing its lights. Customers can also call up important data such as oil condition or tire pressures, send destinations to the in-car navigation system and – subject to local availability – manage the car’s embedded Wi-Fi hotspot, which allows up to seven devices to connect in and around the vehicle.
