According to the latest whispers flying around the rumor mill, the upcoming new generation Opel Meriva MPV will go down the road pioneered by Renault’s Espace, bringing a crossover-inspired styling.
The Meriva has been spied around the Internet and the reports are putting it up for a release later this year – meaning the German automaker could introduce it in October during the Paris Motor Show. Before that, we have a fresh render in which we find out the model will be styled to appeal crossover motorists – and on order to achieve that it will feature a revolutionary design approach. It’s also bigger than its predecessor and comes with a more rugged styling. At the front we can see the Mokka X could deliver some credentials – and other highlight should be the sleek grille and LED-infused headlights. The crossover attributes are supported via the plastic body cladding, a blacked out roof. There’s also a custom D pillar reminiscent of the Adam and we also notice the sculpted hood, wraparound taillights, and high amount of chrome trim.
The renders are still a guess so you might want to take them with a pinch of salt, but according to the latest spy shots we noticed the interior will feature a three-spoke steering wheel, chromed switchgear, and an infotainment system. We also know the model has been thought alongside PSA Peugeot-Citroen and as such it will use the EMP2 architecture already deployed under the Citroen C4 Picasso and Peugeot 308.
