Vauxhall Meriva MPV (2010 - 2012)

The Vauxhall Meriva is roomy inside, has a big boot, and there’s a range of different seating options and some innovative touches to further boost its versatility. These touches aren’t as effective as you’d hope, though, and the Meriva is also disappointing on the road and expensive to buy and run.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The Meriva’s driving position is a plus point. The driver’s seat has height adjustment and the steering wheel moves for both reach and rake, meaning you shouldn’t have any trouble getting comfortable. Visibility is pretty clear, too, but the same can’t be said of the dashboard layout: the centre console is smattered with too many buttons, making it difficult to find the one you want at a glance. Choose a car with sat-nav, and you’ll be even more confused by the illogical menus. The cabin feels very solidly put together and the materials in your eyeline have a pleasant textured finish. Some of the panels lower down, however, are a little harder and scratchier.
