About Opel Meriva
The first generation, named the Meriva A, was based on the third generation Opel Corsa C. It went on sale in May 2003. The first official pictures of the Meriva were released in August 2002.
Like its larger counterpart, the Zafira, the Meriva had a flexible interior, marketed as FlexSpace. Although it only had five seats divided into two rows, the second row could slide forward or backward, or be flattened into the floor, making a flat, level platform for increased boot space. The second row could accommodate two or three passengers.
In the two passenger mode, the seats were separated from the doors and from each other much like the front seats. In three passenger mode, the back seat looked like a regular one piece seat. The front seat could be pushed fully backwards.
The Meriva was sold in South America (except in Chile) from 2003 through 2012 (2013 in Argentina) as the Chevrolet Meriva, where it was replaced in 2012 by the Chevrolet Spin. The initial version had been co-developed by Opel and General Motors do Brasil. It was built in São José dos Campos, Brazil.
From launch, there were three petrol engines and one diesel engine. In 2005, the 1.6 8v petrol engine was replaced with a more powerful and efficient 1.4 engine. The 2.5 Turbo was available with a six speed manual gearbox as standard, and the other engines had a five speed manual gearbox as standard. The 1.6 (16v) and 1.8 petrols were available with a five speed ‘Easytronic’ gearbox as an option. (Source Wiki)
