Vauxhall Meriva

For the British driver, the new Vauxhall Meriva offers wonderful innovations in both comfort and utility. These innovations include the FlexDoors®, Ergonomic Sports Seats, and the Flexfloor®. Designed for both style and comfort, the Meriva is sure to raise interest everywhere it goes.

The designers of the Vauxhall Meriva focused on comfort. Researchers have estimated that 80% of British adults will have back trouble at some point in their lives (1). Vauxhall has made some remarkable innovations to reduce lower back strain. The FlexDoors® were specifically designed to reduce the amount of back discomfort that often occurs when loading and unloading the car. They are designed to open much wider allowing easier access. This means that less twisting that often aggravates back problems is required. Vauxhall also includes the option for AGR certified ergonomic sport seats. These seats adjust six ways along with providing four-way lumbar support to assist the driver in maintaining proper posture. The Meriva was engineered with a high seating position; this reduces back pain as well as it enhances the drive with a feeling of roominess and comfort. The high seating position gives the driver a much better view. This makes the car safer to drive.

Vauxhall created FlexFloor to give the traveler additional options in cargo area configurations. The floor can be raised to the height of the bumper. This makes loading and unloading heavy or bulky objects easier, and it gives additional space under the floor for storing additional tools and such. These are just a few of the revolutionary design changes that the Mariva offers making life easier and more comfortable.
