This MVP was originally launched in late 2002 and so far, we have seen two generations. The original model, which was produced until 2010, was classified as mini MVP, while second generation model, which grown up to compact multi-purpose vehicle. This January, facelifted version was presented as a world premiere at the Brussels International Motor Show, so we can’t expect some big changes for 2016 Opel Meriva. However, this is one of the most important models of this German car maker and it is constantly under development, so we will definitely see some improvements on 2016 year model too. In United Kingdom it will be offered as Vauxhall Meriva.

The 2016 Opel Meriva will be based on model that was shown in Brussels. It will share pretty much the same looks, which means that it will come with revisited front fascia, which will give modern and attractive look. Restyled front end includes new grille, headlights and fog lights. The main characteristic of new model is that you will find a plenty of chrome details, which are present in pretty much all newer models from Opel. The 2016 Meriva will also come with new-designed 18-inch alloy wheels. Interior is definitely one of the most important segments of this type of the car, so you can expect many improvements inside the cabin too. This car is already known as spacious and comfortable, but it is expected that Opel Meriva 2016 will be upgraded even more, especially when it is about implementation of new technologies.

Just like current model, 2016 Opel Meriva will be available in several variants. Petrol options are 1.4 liter I4 with 99 hp and 96 lb-ft and 1.4 liter turbo that outputs 138 horses and 148 lb-ft of max torque.
