Vauxhall Meriva Reviews
Total Aggregate Score
9 / 10
Everywhere you look in the car there are practical touches, and despite the subtlety of its styling updates it looks a lot more upmarket than it did before. The changes might be small, but they keep the Meriva on top of its game.
4 / 5
The Meriva range is quite variable and includes some models that are unlikely to be of much interest. On the whole, though, it works well, largely because of that interesting door arrangement.
4 / 5
The innovative Vauxhall Meriva offers family-friendly transport thanks to its versatile seating and wide-opening doors.
3.8 / 5
The Vauxhall Meriva is a compact MPV with innovative door design to boost practicality. It’s roomy and high-quality, too.
3.5 / 5
It’s attractive, cleverly designed, roomy and refined, and would make as practical a second car as most families are likely to need.
3.5 / 5
This model is a huge leap forward in both those fields but retains the family-friendly practicality and versatility of the previous model. It’s considerably larger than before, but the big talking point is the rear-hinged side doors that are a genuinely useful feature .
7 / 10
A decent family car with loads of clever touches – so long as you don’t buy the cheapest version.
4 / 10
The Meriva’s practicality is a definite plus point, but its price and safety equipment can’t be defended. The problem is, the models of Meriva you want, you can’t justify – and the ones you can justify, you don’t want.
2 / 5
Not a class-leader, by any means. But if you get a big enough discount and only need to carry four people the Vauxhall Meriva has some clever tricks.
