Updated Opel Meriva shown in Brussels image

The 2014 Opel Meriva has been officially presented to the public during the 2014 Brussels Motor Show, in a premiere.

Opel has decided to make some interesting updates to the Meriva and to officially pull the wraps off the model during the 2014 Brussels Motor Show. The model in question has been modestly revised and it has received some additional chrome trim, different headlights, which can get optional LED daytime running lights, a new front grille and others. Changes made to the interior include the new IntelliLink infotainment system with a 7-inch display, a CD player, USB connectivity, Bluetooth, audio streaming and much more.

“The Opel Meriva has set the standard in the segment – if not in the industry – for ergonomics, affordable flexibility and quality”, said Peter Christian Kuspert, the Opel VP for Sales and Aftersales.

As far as the engine lineup goes, the 1.6 liter CDTI is replacing the previous 1.3 liter and 1.7 liter units. The total output produced by the unit stands at 136 HP (100 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. The average fuel consumption stands at 4.4 L / 100 km (64.2 mpg UK / 53.4 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at 116 g/km. Two other versions of this engine will be added later on, one of them with 110 HP (81 kW).
