Currently selling extremely well within the UK car market, it is a wonder that the Vauxhall Meriva has not drawn more attention.
Proving highly popular, yet subtly understated, the Meriva is a small car offering huge benefits.
Inspired by the seven-seat Zafira, the Vauxhall Meriva introduces a whole new level of flexible rear seating to the five person car market. As a ‘mini-MPV’ it offers flexible seating and great space efficiency in a small footprint, whilst the 2010 model goes one step further with FlexSpace; a usually roomy high-set bench for three, the middle seat can be collapsed which allows the two outer seats to squeeze both inwards and rearwards – providing limo-levels of leg and shoulder room for two. Fantastic visibility makes the Meriva one of the most passenger-friendly small cars on today’s market.
When driving, the Meriva possesses a choice of smooth petrol engines or economical diesels and provides a composed ride and secure handling. Overall it’s a refined cruiser, feeling far bigger than its already large appearance. For those who like something a bit racier, Vauxhall also offers the MkI Meriva as a powerful version as well – the Meriva VXR. With 180bhp, stiffened suspension and a 1.6litre turbo engine, it’s a strong performing car capable of 137mph.
For a reassuringly quality car capable of providing total comfort for both its driver and its passengers, the Meriva is most definitely one to consider.
