The Baby Of The MPV’s
The original Meriva was based on the Corsa platform, and was marketed to provide a practical family alternative to its bigger sibling, the Zafira. The Meriva featured Vauxhall’s FlexSpace system, which meant the 3 rear independent seats could be moved and folded independently of each other, allowing the driver to create the right space they need at the time.
Growing With Age
The newest Meriva is larger than its predecessor, and has moved from a Mini MPV to a Compact MPV. The new model features much more angular stylings, and a much higher quality finish in the interior, both of which keep it in line with the new Insignia and Astra, both of which have benefitted from Vauxhall ramping up the quality.
