The A to Z of Cars – Vauxhall Meriva

Wed 11th Apr 2018

There are thousands of cars to choose from at The choice is amazing, so to help you decide which motor might be best for you, this helpful guide to every model on the market should help.

Vauxhall Meriva
Launched in 2003, in its first iteration as a mini MPV and then upgraded to a compact MPV, the Meriva, like its bigger sibling, the Zafira, is noted for its flexible interior, known as FlexSpace.

The first generation was based on the older Corsa frame and despite those small beginnings it still offered plenty of space within, and of course lots more when those flexible seats disappeared.

The second generation, launched in 2009, dropped the Corsa sensibilities and had a closer DNA to the Zafira and claimed front seat technology from both the Insignia and Astra.

The biggest change on the second generation though came with the iconic ‘suicide doors’ which were rear-hinged and marketed as FlexDoors.

Production of the Meriva ended in June 2017, with Vauxhall focusing on the urban crossover of the Crossland X.

Nice to drive and with funky doors, the Meriva is very practical for such a small car. 3.5/5 – Top Gear
