We’ve heard and seen quite a bit from the upcoming Opel Meriva replacement, which will ditch its MPV looks, and become a more traditional crossover utility vehicle. However, the new vehicle has a new name.
According to Automotive News, Meriva is out, and Crossland X is in. Opel CEO Dr. Karl Thomas Neumann stated the new CUV will be aimed at consumers looking for an SUV-like vehicle, but with less masculine design and more cargo practicality.
The Crossland X is also said to have many design elements borrowed from the quirky Opel Adam, especially at the vehicle’s C-pillar. The Crossland X is one product of the nearly dissolved GM-PSA partnership. The next Peugeot 2008 and Citroen C3 Picasso will have an identical platform to the Opel.
