The Meriva is baring all! Our spies have captured the best shots yet of Vauxhall's compact MPV - the car that's doing everything it can to stand out from the competition.
With rear-hinged doors for easier access to the interior and a versatile 'FlexSpace' seating arrangement it ticks all the boxes for practicality. There’s also a distinctive kink along the shoulder line and a black-surround to the rear windscreen.
The upright, boxy design of the original Meriva has been replaced by a sleeker, more appealing exterior placing it as a competitor to more premium models such as the MINI Clubman.
Power will likely come from a range of engines that mirror those available in the new Astra. This means we can expect to see a naturally aspirated 1.4-litre engine as well as a turbo-charged 1.4-litre which produces 140hp.
As for the oil burners there will be four engines on offer, ranging from 95 to 160hp. All units will have stop-start technology to help to improve fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions.
The new Meriva will be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March next year.
