Digital artist interpretation shows crossover credentials for Opel Meriva image

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.
