With the second generation Meriva reaching half of its lifetime, Opel decided to slightly freshen the look of it and add a few new things. The most obvious change happens at the front. It now features a new face, similar to the one premiered with the Insignia, with a larger chromed front grille and a new design for the lights with LED technology.
