2011 Opel Meriva interior revealed

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

These are the official details and images of the new 2011 Meriva, which German carmaker Opel released recently. We have yet to get information on the engine choices but what we know is that Opel has detailed all the "Flexes" it associated with the car: FlexDoors, FlexSpace, FlexRail and FlexFix.

To access the interior, you would have to get pass through the rear-hinged FlexDoors, a first in the segment.

The size of the door aperture has been optimized by using the space which is occupied by the rear wheel-arch with a front-hinged door. By placing the rear door hinges on the C-pillar, entry and exit space is wider.

A feature that is highly useful in storing cargo is more-than-90-degree opening of Meriva's FlexDoors. This is much wider than conventional doors.

What has gotten people excited though is the FlexRail center console, which provides adaptable storage. At the rear, FlexRail offers an adaptable cabin configuration without having to remove any seats.

For a more intuitive operation, sliding the rear seat cushions or lowering the seatbacks can be done in an easy, one-step motion. This enables the Meriva to easily transform between five and two seats.

This means that the FlexFix bicycle carrier allows for a bicycle to be transported without having to resort to special tools or fittings. Two bicycles can be accommodated in the carrier. When not in use, it just slides back invisibly into the Meriva's rear bumper.

For its interior, the Meriva will come in six different levels of color and trim. The overall quality of the materials will be quite similar to that found on the Insignia and the new Astra.
