2011 Opel Meriva 3D commercial – Click above to watch video after the jump

Opel wants to put its new Meriva crossover in your face, three-dimensional like. The first commercial for the people-and-baby carrier with the coach rear doors comes with enhanced stereoscopic vision, and there are hugs and balloons and soccer and pelican-looking things and more hugs and a snappy tune. But there aren't any 3D glasses. You'll need to supply those yourself before you follow the jump for the vid. Or you can peep the gallery of high-res photo below, for which your regular human eyes should suffice.

      Would make a nice GMC.

      That would make a great Saturn!!

      Oh, wait.

      Nevermind.

        That Buick makes a great Opel!

      Crap, my polarized glasses don't work; gotta get some red-blue ones.

      As for the Meriva, I like it, with the exception of the toilet paper-embossed upholstery pattern. And did anybody else notice the Opel Manta at the beginning of the commercial? When I was shopping for my first car back in the '70s, the Manta, and the similar Opel 1900, were near the top of my list.

      Nothing more than a copy of the very first concept of this type of vehicle, can you see a PT Cruiser in this and so many other copy cat vehicles? It was ridiculed at first but won car of the year in Car and driver. Chrysler has sold well over a million of them and guess what, the idiots are canceling it instead of improving on a winning, copy cat design. Someone at Chrysler has their heads up their butts. KOS

      This would never sell in America. Did you notice instead of a cup holder it has an Orange holder. American's don't eat fruit. We need a french fry holder! As for being a Buick I really don't know if the "brand" Buick is right for this. The 90's/2000/s Minivans killed Buick. I could see this as a Chevy or at least the Orlando. But that won't happen. And if I recall from past comments on the Orlando everyone keeps on saying the Mazda 5 and Kia Rio are poor sellers. Of course when the Ford Cmax comes the market may change along with the image of this mini-mini-vans.

      This is that controversial, "aveo-based," Buick cross-over.

      Not sure what the 3D was for. Ok, the bridge stanchions flash closely, and a couple of random 3D cgi thing were thrown in, but really added nothing to the ad at all; although it did get all of us to watch the ad and got a post on autoblog, so I guess it served that purpose.

      What a cool car for a small family! Full credit goes for the reverse doors and the interior. The only thing I can see is that there are likely way too many buttons on the dash, but I am sure an owner would get used to that over time. Well done Opel! I wonder if Buick will get one?

        I think we should still be working on the hybrid cars. Http://www.hybridcarplace.com

        Buick (China) doesn't already have it?

        What's odd is that Chevy won't be selling it. As a high-value packaging offering, this would make a great Chevy for the USDM.

      Looks nice, though still not a fan of the suicide doors. I think the novelty would fade as soon as you had four people trying to get out of the car at the same time in a tight parking space. I just don't see the fun in drawing up a football play every time I want to exit a vehicle.

      I collect things from the past like old 3D viewing glases from the era of 3D so I saw the commercial in 3D and the rest of you didn't miss a thing.

      This car looks like the other cars that already on the market here. The Matrix, Mazda 3, Ifit etc. The Opel when it was sold here in the 60's and 70's were part of the Buick line up of cars. What some of you refer to as reverse doors are not new. Lincoln Continental had them in the 60's as well and we called them Suicide doors, the reason was because if you did not watch it when exiting the car and it got hit it came back on you....
