Russelsheim, 18. May 2011 – the zafira is still one of the highlights in the opel program today. Practical characteristics as the retractable third series of seats still make him a very interesting representative of his genus. Since 1999, opel has sold 2.2 million copies of the vans in europe. At the frankfurt iaa in mid-september 2011, the successor is shown – the zafira tourer. The previous zafira is offered, however, as a savings version below the tourer. Both models are built in bochum.
More about everything
The zafira tourer survives his process with a long of 4.66 meters by almost 20 centimeters. Thus, the opel is almost exactly exactly between the vw touran and the vw sharan. Otherwise, the zafira tourer has gone: the wheelbase wave by just under six centimeters to 2.76 meters, then the gauge passes to a good 1.59 meters too. The design of the zafira tourer is closely based on the study shown in marz 2011 at the geneva motor show. Markant is the boomerang look of the headlights, typical of opel are now the hook-shaped daytime running lights. At the rear, the lamps shine on request in led optics, a rough horizontal chrome clip letting the van wider appear. Slim a-soule and rough side windows should significantly improve the view for the driver. Optionally, there is a rough panoramic windshield at citroen – it is subjectively contributing to a particularly coarse room feel.
For zafira customers, the room offer is the focus. The third row of seats is still retractable in the trunk floor. The second row was completely redesigned. Here are artificially three separate single seats, which can be placed flat or deposited independently by 21 centimeters in the long direction. Optional there is one "lounge seat system", that sounds a lot of. Thanks to a special folding and rotary mechanism, the mid-seat’s backrest is comfortable armrests for the sitting passengers. Their sitting mobel can be moved again by seven centimeters against the standard seating. If necessary, the seats also slide up to five centimeters in the direction of the vehicle center.
As a funfeaser, the zafira tourer offers 710 liters of packing volume, which are 65 liters more than so far. Maximum are 1860 liters possible, a profit of 40 liters. Bicycle friends can look forward to the second generation of the flexfix tragersystems. The carrier integrated into the rear can be easily pulled out and gets an easy-to-use fastening mechanism.
