  • MERIVA VXR DETAILS ANNOUNCED


    The Meriva has been given the VXR treatment and its guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of anyone who likes their cars fast, fun and more than a little cheeky.
    The high-performance version of the versatile five-seater made its debut at the Essen Motor Show in November 2005 and has just become available to order from your local Vauxhall retailer.
    STYLING, SPECIFICATION AND PERFORMANCE
    Under the bonnet is an all-new 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine which produces an impressive 180PS, making it easily the most powerful car in the class. Driving the front wheels through a six-speed close ratio gearbox, it’s enough to take the Meriva from 0-60 mph in a 7.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 137mph.
    Another highlight is the software controlled over-boost function of the turbo charger, which increases maximum torque by 15% to 260 Nm for around 5 seconds.
    To cope with the extra power, the chassis has been thoroughly reworked to give the driving dynamics expected of a car carrying the VXR badge. The exterior styling has been upgraded with front and rear bumpers which clearly link the newest VXR to the style started with the Meriva’s big brothers - the VXR Astra, Zafira and Vectra models. The Meriva’s 17-inch alloy wheels are in the now-familiar six-spoke VXR design too.
    Inside, the Meriva VXR retains all the practicality of the acclaimed FlexSpace seating system, but there is a twist which has never been seen before. Special Recaro seats hold the occupants, and VXR logos adorn the gearlever, instruments and steering wheel.
