The 2014 Opel Meriva has officially been put on sale in Europe with an entry level price of €15, 990 ($21,444 USD). The redesigned compact MPV has a refreshed front and rear fascia, wider grille, LED daytime running lights and a new, wider range of engines.
For the entry-level price of €15, 990 customers will get the 100 horsepower 1.4 liter gasoline engine mated to a five speed manual transmission and base amenities such as power side mirrors and front windows, an electric parking brake and a host of other safety features.
The higher end Meriva Edition with the more powerful 120 horsepower 1.4 liter turbo engine comes standard with cruise control, leather wrapped steering wheel, and CD400 infotainment system for €19, 450. The upgrade to the Innovation package sees the addition of the Intellilink CD600 infotainment system with a full-color seven inch display, USB and Auxillary inputs, Bluetooth connectivity and LED daytime running lights.
The new Meriva also features Opels quiet “whisper-diesel” 1.6 liter CIDI engine that previously debuted in the Zafira Tourer. This new, refined diesel, which Opel says is the quietest in its class, delivers 136 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. All engines offered on the new Meriva, the 1.6 diesel and both 1.4 liter gasoline engines, already comply with future Euro 6 emissions standards.
