2010 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: Vauxhall Meriva

Vauxhall have lifted the Meriva from the small-MPV class to the five-seat compact-MPV sector with this new model – a response to larger families or larger children?

Whatever, they are making quite a song and dance about the car’s clever, rear-hinged back doors, which swing open towards the back of the car and simplify entry and exit for those passengers who presumably find difficulty in such manoeuvres.

When it hits UK showrooms this month, there will be a choice of three 1.4-litre petrol engines, or a 1.3 or 1.7 diesel, and two more diesel variants will be available later this year.

The Meriva comes with an impressive list of standard equipment and prices start from £15,495 on the road.

MM verdict: Yes, but it’s still an MPV. And a Vauxhall.
