The Opel will replace the compact minivan Meriva with a car more crossover style, 420 cm long and modular platform based EMP2 PSA group, the same that will be used for the new edition of the Citroën C3 Picasso. The model will be called Opel Crossland X and is visible in our reconstruction above, where some of the elements that are common to all the latest Opel: the radiator grille, lights with the new signature light and fog lights “embedded” in the shield. The Opel Meriva will be more decisive than the lines Crossland X and will take a series of side guards, including those on the wheel arches, which will give a more resolute: inspiration is the suv Mokka X.
