New Vauxhall Zafira adds Tourer to its name

Taking a closer look at the picture gallery below, one will not see the Opel Zafira, nor the Vauxhall Zafira because the "Tourer" designation was added by the Luton-based carmaker at the end of its new product. Another reason would be that the old model is going to be sold in UK showrooms until early 2012, while its sales are scheduled to begin at the end of the year. When it comes to speak about luxury and flexibility in the MPV segment, many enthusiasts concluded that the Ford S-Max Fighter has grown more refined and mature. The Fex7 seating, which represented an innovation for seven-seat integration in the original 1999 Zafira, will continue to be used by the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer, offering greater levels of flexibility and comfort after having evolved radically. Furthermore, the Vauxhall zafira Tourer is defined from its compact MPV Zafira sibling by the improved material quality and more cabin space. Better dynamics is offered by the wider tracks provided by the longer wheelbase. The new chassis uses key components from the Insignia, thus offering its driver a great appeal, while the FlexRide adaptive damping system will be available as an option. The new Zafira Tourer is strongly defined by a number of features, such as a park assist system, a blind spot alert system, adaptive lights, forward collision alert, a traffic sign recognition function, a lane departure warning system, emergency brake function and an adaptive cruise control. Under the bonnet, there lie three versions of Vauxhall's 2.0 CDTi diesel available in 108, 128 and 163bhp guises. After a petrol engine, the buyers can choose between a turbocharged 1.4 and a naturally aspirated 1.8, both delivering 138bhp.
