Vauxhall Meriva prices and details announced

The Meriva will be offered with a choice of five engines from launch, with power output ranging from 74 to 138bhp. A further two diesel engines will be added to the range later in the year.

Vauxhall is offering four trim levels – Expression, S, Exclusiv and SE – with the Meriva, with equipment levels varying across the range.

A Radio/CD player with 4-speaker sound system, Aux-in and Triple Info Display comes as standard in all Meriva cars.

The radio features a double-tuner function. When reception is poor, a second tuner searches for a stronger signal and, when found, the radio switches to it with virtually no interruption to reception.

Entry-level Expression specification adds the wing panel and seat upholstery in muted black, complemented by a black finish for the centre stack and air vent trims.

S specification features side airbags, 7-speaker system with upgraded audio, a large graphic info display, a USB port and a wider range of engines and exterior colours.

Exclusiv offers a choice of three interior colours, together with an enhanced, woven seat fabric and chrome accents for the steering wheel and the centre stack trim.

Top-of-the-line SE specification adds rich, embossed seat upholstery trimmed with black Morrocana and contrasting stitching. Two color combinations are offered: anthracite for the wing and black for the seat upholstery, or Cocoa with blue/grey for both. The new Meriva offers a choice of infotainment systems, including flash memory provision and embedded Bluetooth phone connectivity.

The Meriva SUV features an innovative Flexdoor system consisting of two rear doors which open from the rear of the car, creating a ‘safe’ space when all doors are open and allowing easier loading, particularly for children.

The Vauxhall Meriva is on sale in the UK now, with deliveries set to begin on 18 June.
