The new Vauxhall Meriva enters the UK market with aggressive pricing starting at just £15,495 OTR for the 100PS 1.4 S model, making it a highly competitive proposition for buyers in the compact MPV sector. Customers can order their cars from dealers today.
With a larger wheelbase offering added practicality for buyers - especially those with young children - the Vauxhall Meriva has shifted out of the small-MPV and into the five-seat compact-MPV class, where it's set to raise the bar for innovation, thanks to standard features like FlexDoors and FlexSpace.
And no matter what the model, the Vauxhall Meriva packs a long list of generous equipment. A CD 400 CD player with MP3 format and aux-in/USB, graphic information display, heated door mirrors, electric windows and electronic park brake means that no Meriva can be classed as 'poverty-spec'. But even in mid-range Exclusiv form, the Vauxhall Meriva gets air conditioning, cruise control, curtain airbags and the clever FlexRail storage/convenience feature, at a starting price of £16,650 for the 100PS 1.4-litre version.
But for the ultimate in MPV luxury, the Vauxhall Meriva SE model holds all the cards. Standard features like a fixed Panoramic full-glass roof with electronic sunshade, dark tinted rear windows and front foldable tray tables on front seat backs will leave families wanting for little, though with a starting price of £17,430, it still offers excellent value.
Entry price for diesel models is £16,875 for the S trim 1.3 CDTi 75PS, and extend to £21,255 for the range-topping Vauxhall Meriva SE 1.7 CDTi 100PS automatic. From launch, all 1.7 CDTi versions will come with automatic gearboxes, with a six-speed manual becoming available soon after.
