Vauxhall Meriva facelift revealed with a new 134bhp diesel engine

Vauxhall has unveiled the refreshed Meriva with a new look and a new 134bhp 1.6-litre diesel engine.

The Meriva facelift gets a new grille, chrome accents that frame the front fog lamps and newly-designed headlamps with an ‘eagle-eye’ graphic. LED daytime running lights and LED tail lights are now available as an option. There are also new optional 18-inch alloy wheels.

Vauxhall’s all-new 134bhp 1.6 CDTi diesel engine is now available in the Meriva delivering 64.2mpg combined and 116g/km of CO2 emissions. That’s a 10 per cent improvement over the 1.7 CDTi, which the new unit replaces.

0-60mph comes in 9.1 seconds, nearly a second quicker than the 1.7 CDTi.

Other engine options include a 99bhp 1.4-litre petrol and a 1.4-litre turbo delivering either 118bhp or 138bhp.

Prices will be announced next month when the Meriva goes on sale here in UK. First deliveries are scheduled for January 2014.
