We have the first video of the 2010 version of the Opel / Vauxhall Meriva with driving footage and a walk round.
GM’s European arm – Vauxhall and Opel - have been on a roll model-wise for quite some time. The Insignia is a really good car and the new Astra has turned out to be up there with the best in class. And the latest model to get a makeover is the Meriva, which looks like it’s going to be up there with the rest of the Vauxhall / Opel range.
The 2010 Meriva has been revealed over the last week or two, with the first official pictures – which were all exteriors – followed by a sole interior picture a couple of days ago. Which isn’t really enough. So we’ve managed to find a video of the Meriva which has not just driving shots but also a walk-round of the car.
We’re pretty impressed with what we’ve seen of the Meriva so far. It’s a stylish and well thought out car with some very clever touches. How well stuff like the suicide doors will be in the real world we’re not sure, but it’s good to see Vauxhall/Opel being brave with the Meriva.
The new Meriva – with a range of six engines – will debut at the Geneva Motor Show before going on sale in the UK and Europe later in 2010. Expect prices to start from under £14k.
