One new feature of the seven-seater compact MPV will be a panoramic roof system with integrated storage compartments.
Familiar from the Astra and redeveloped for new Zafira, the IDS Plus chassis (Interactive Driving System) with electronic CDC (Continuous Damping Control) will also be included. Adaptive forward lighting (AFL) is available for the first time in an MPV.
There are two diesel and four petrol engines from the ECOTEC family with power outputs of 100 to 200bhp. The top-of-the-line engine is the 200hp 2.0 turbo, taking the Zafira to a maximum speed of around 137mph. Vauxhall’s new 1.9-litre common-rail turbo-diesel engine also joins the line-up.
DVD navigation and Bluetooth technology will also feature.
Prices of the new Zafira will be announced closer to the July launch date.
