Observant GM Authority reader Daniel spotted an Opel Meriva parked in the city of Markham in Southern Ontario. Coated in the Crinan Blue hue and wearing Ontario Dealer plates, the Meriva sported a manual transmission and leather-wrapped seats while sporting an Ontario dealer plate in the rear. In addition, the Gamma-based sub-compact MPV had testing gear installed on the front passenger side — indicating the possibility that the vehicle might be undergoing testing for the North American market. Daniel says that outside of the testing gear, the vehicle looked stock.
The sighting of the Meriva in Canada follows that of an Opel Vivaro in November of last year, which also was seen with testing equipment. What do you make of all this? Talk to us in the comments.
Hat tip to Daniel.
