Boasting a bundle of new technology features and a revamped look, Vauxhall has launched the new Zafira tourer which is their latest entry in the MPV lineup.
One of the significant updates done to the model is the double wing running lights with updated headlamps. The front fascia is quite sporty with a new grille coupled with muscular wheel arches and bulky rear end. The newer version of the car looks bigger, wider and has a squat like appearance which is not something found in the outgoing model. However, the rear end of the Zafira Tourer remains completely unchanged.
Speaking about the launch, Mark Adams, Vice President of the design wing in Europe said, “We have come up with the Zafira Tourer which is designed after the Astra. The former is an award winning model which is part of the Vauxhall portfolio. The interior design is totally clean and easy to use for the passenger as well as the driver. The dashboard is made in an intuitive manner so as to reach them all.”
In terms of technological upgrade, the integrated screen is a major change in the Vauxhall Zafira tourer. There are plenty of analog buttons on it so as to appease old school lovers while the touchscreen technology is futuristic that gets job done quickly. The car is equipped with the IntelliLink Infotainment system which supports both Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The OnStar system provides satellite navigation and even places an emergency call in case of an accident. The Tourer is equipped with 4G Wifi hotspot on the inside to keep the passengers entertained on the go.
A front camera is mounted which provides forward collision warning besides lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. It is equipped with Flex7 Seating with FlexRide adaptive damping. The total boot capacity of the vehicle is 710 liters which gets increased to a massive 1,860 liters when the second row in the Zafira Tourer is folded.
There is no word on the powertrain being used by the company. However, it is most likely to use a petrol and a diesel engine variant with options available on both sides. Sources claim that the crew may opt for a 1.4-liter turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.6-liter diesel engine. The numbers seem ideal for the big car from Vauxhall. The Zafira Tourer doesn’t have an official pricing revealed yet. It is set for launch in the month of October this year.
