Opel Meriva Prototype loses a little more camouflage

The Opel Meriva has been spotted once again while undergoing testing in preparation for its expected unveiling next year. Camouflage treatment on this particular prototype is slightly different to previous photos caught by spy photographers.

The shape of both headlights and taillights are clearly visible, and the engineers continued efforts to hide the door handles and hinges are almost comical. The Meriva will sport a suicide door layout, a feature that will be known as “flexdoors” by the Opel brand come production time.

Our sources claim the Meriva will be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show which is a good 12 months away, but don't be surprised to see the new MPV make an earlier appearance in Geneva.

No, suicide doors - the article says and there have been photographs elsewhere.

This looks much bigger than the current model, it can't be far off Zafira territory.
