This moody shot is of the new Vauxhall Meriva concept car which will be displayed in more detail at the Geneva Show next month.
The feature which is being promoted most heavily at this stage is the patented FlexDoors system. The front doors on each side open normally, but those at the back are rear-hinged, and open to an unusually generous 90 degrees.
Rear-hinged doors are often referred to as "suicide doors", which is rather ironic in this case, given that Vauxhall is emphasising the extra safety of this arrangement. In other cars with similar systems, the rear doors can't be opened independently of the ones in front, which can make it tricky to get out if you're sitting in the back.
In contrast, the Meriva concept's rear doors can be opened independently, since they are held in place against a central B pillar. Vauxhall points out that the existence of this pillar improves the concept's ability to withstand a side impact.
Apart from all this, Vauxhall says that the concept's styling gives an idea of what we can expect from its "monocabs" in future - monocab being a term suggesting a "one-box" design as found in the current Meriva and Zafira, as well as the new Agila.
