A dramatic new concept car featuring “suicide” rear doors is pointing the way to future Vauxhall people carriers.
Due to be unveiled at next month’s Geneva Motor Show, the Meriva Concept uses rear-hinged doors, dubbed FlexDoors, to make access to the rear seats easier.
Although just a concept, expect the door system to make it into production on the next Meriva mini-MPV model due next year.
And don’t bet against the next Zafira gaining FlexDoors, either.
Unlike other cars with these type of doors, the rear ones can be opened independently of the fronts, and Vauxhall has also developed an electronic lock system so children cannot open the doors.
