Opel has officially unveiled the upgraded 2014 Meriva at the 84th Geneva Motor Show.
New Euro 6-certified powertrainThe 2014 Opel Meriva comes with a new range of petrol, LPG and diesel powertrains that already comply with the future emissions regulation Euro 6 which will apparently come into force in September 2015.
The first version available in the new Meriva is the 1.6-litre CDTI engine that replaces the previous 1.3- and 1.7-litre CDTI units. The new engine develops 100 kW and 320 Nm of torque and consumes just 4.4-litres/100km with CO2 emissions of 116 g/km.
Further versions of the engine will be launched in the close future, including two executions with 81 kW output. One of them will particularly stand out, with a fuel consumption of a mere 3.8-litres/100km and CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km, making the Meriva the first petrol or diesel monocab under 100g.
The engines will be connected to new "low-friction" transmissions which promise to be smoother and deliver more precise gear changes.
Exterior featuresModestly revised, the 2014 Opel Meriva MPV has been upgraded with crisp details and sparkling chrome accents, a new grille with restyled headlights which can be ordered with optional LED daytime running lights.
