Vauxhall's new Meriva has revolutionary doors that are scientifically proven to reduce back strain. The revolutionary FlexDoors reduce back strain by up to 58 percent compared with a standard car. The rear hinged doors on the Vauxhall Meriva are similar to those seen on the iconic London black cab providing easy access to the rear seats and making entering and exiting the car and lifting objects in and out effortless. This is ideal for parents with young children and for the older generation.
The new Vauxhall Meriva comes at a time when more and more Brits are injuring their backs, with 80% of us suffering back pain at some point in our lives and one in six working days are taken as sick days due to a bad back. Dr James Shippen of Coventry University, who headed the research, said "with this research we wanted to prove that the New Vauxhall Meriva could actually help the physical wellbeing of drivers everywhere. The results speak for themselves; you will be putting significantly less strain on your back with this car."
Inside the Vauxhall Meriva the new FlexSpace allows easier fold-down of the rear seats, while moving the rear seats to create more boot, leg or shoulder room is simpler than ever. There is advanced seat comfort and new for the Vauxhall Meriva is a full-length panoramic sunroof, which is standard on SE models. At almost two metres long, the roof comes with an electronic blind and is one of the largest of its kind offered in the compact MPV segment. The Vauxhall Meriva is in showrooms and available to order now.
