Spy Shots: Opel Meriva Facelift image

Following the Astra with its completely redesigned fascia and bumper and new taillights, the next Opel being readied for an upgrade is the Meriva.

The 2014 Opel Meriva has just been spied wearing a minor amount of camouflage giving us the chance to see how the new front fascia will look.

These are the first images showing the Meriva’s new daytime running lights. The front bumper, however, is still mildly disguised. At the rear the prototype is sporting zero camouflage so we expect this to receive some minor changes, if any.

As a quick reminder, Opel introduced Meriva multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) vehicle in late 2002. First it was classified as a mini MPV, while the second generation is a compact MPV.

The second generation Meriva was unveiled in 2010 at the Geneva Motor Show. It is available with a series of seven engines – 4 petrol and 3 diesels. All petrol engines are Ecotec.

Meriva is the first and only MPV to have rear-hinged rear doors. It was designed by Niels Loeb.

In 2010, Euro NCAP rated the Merica MPV with 5-stars.
