Opel / Vauxhall Meriva Concept – ’08 Geneva Preview

Opel Meriva Concept

Just like all automakers Opel is preparing for the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March. Meriva Concept is the study of Opel and Vauxhall and represents the next generation of Euro Minivan. The Meriva Concept looks like a combination of GTC Coupe and Flextreme both Opel and Vauxhall Concepts, but now they hope to attract more customers with this monocab form.

As a fact, the Meriva Concept represents just one of the three GM’s scheduled to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

I am a big fan of these monocab models and I really hope that Opel will have the same “inspiration” which they had with GTC Coupe.


Meriva Concept to make Geneva debut

Already Europe’s market leader in the monocab sector, with one in five pan-European sales being a Zafira, Meriva or Agila, Vauxhall and Opel are set to unveil their vision of the future at the Geneva Motor Show on March 4th.

The Meriva Concept draws styling cues from previous GM styling studies to show how the company’s next generation small monocab could look, including the distinctive tick-shaped swage line and neat rear lamp clusters that typified the GTC Coupe and Flextreme models.

Another neat feature of the Meriva Concept is the shape of the glass area, which swoops down towards the B-Pillar – a feature that would allow rear seat passengers a better all-round view if it were offered on a production model.

The Meriva Concept is one of three GM world premieres set to appear at the show.
