New Vauxhall Meriva Details

Inside Story

  • Award-winning FlexSpace layout

  • Lead me to car’ interior lighting as standard

  • Upgraded interior and trim

The package might be compact, but there’s nothing small about the inside of New Meriva, with its innovative seating layout and unrivalled versatility.

The clever FlexSpace seating is carried over from the previous model, allowing the standard five-seat cabin to be transferred into a more spacious four-seater, or even a two-seater with van-like practicality in seconds.

Depending on the arrangement of the rear seats, Meriva has the capacity to carry between 330 and 560-litres of luggage, while with the seats dropped fully this increases to over 1,410-litres. Storage spaces are ample, too, with a wide range of compartments, luggage nets and bag hooks, plus a secret compartment under the boot floor that’s specially designed to conceal a standard-sized briefcase or laptop computer.

The multi-function Travel Assistant, pioneered on the previous Meriva, is also available, clipping into the rear seat centre and offering an extra five-litres of concealed storage and fold-out cup holders.

But it’s not only practicality that marks New Meriva out from the crowd. The cabin has been revitalised with a range of new, high quality trim materials. The fabrics feature clean, modern graphics, while the ergonomic standards of the cabin are improved significantly to include higher grade plastics and neat touches, such as chrome detailing on the gear lever, door handles and dashboard dials.

New Meriva also features an innovation in interior lighting, never before seen on a car in this class. Using a remote control, the car’s headlights and interior lights can be turned on for up to 30 seconds, helping guide your way to the car in the dark and increasing the safety and security of owners at night. Although a feature that some makers might charge extra for in premium models, it’s fitted as standard even to entry-level Merivas.
