These are the first pictures of the interior of the new Vauxhall Meriva.
Vauxhall says it has been designed to maximise space, visibility and functionality.
To achieve this, the Meriva’s designers have lowered and moved the instrument panel forward, creating more space for front occupants. The A-pillars have also been narrowed, aiding driver visibility. In the rear, the lower window line increases visibility for passengers, especially children.
The FlexSpace seating system on the new Meriva has been improved over the current model's; the rear seat cushions and rear seatbacks slide and lower in one action.
In addition, both its outer rear seats can be moved fore and aft individually. They also slide inwards to provide more shoulder width and leg room in a four-seat layout. The rear seats lower fully without the headrests having to be removed.
With its rear seatbacks up, the Meriva’s boot has a 400-litre capacity. This increases to 920 litres with the seatbacks folded, and 1500 litres if loaded to the roof.
