Opel has unveiled today the production version 2012 Zafira minivan,
first seen as a concept during this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
According to the automaker this new model represents a quantum leap in
terms of flexibility combined with premium qualities, featuring the
Flex7 seating concept which has been further upgraded with three
individual seats in the middle row. These seats can be folded flat, can
move independently and can also slide longitudinally by 210 mm.
Opel’s
new minivan comes with an increased wheel base which measures 2,760 mm
(+ 57 mm), and also wider front and rear tracks measuring 1,584 mm (+ 96
mm) and 1,588 (+ 78 mm) respectively.
The luggage compartment
offers a load volume of 710 litres when the third row of seats is
folded, or as much as 1,860 litres when both rear rows are folded.
Motorisation
options for the 2012 Opel Zafira Minivan will include three diesels and
two petrols, all of which will come with Start Stop technology as
standard. The diesel range is based on the automaker’s 2.0-litre CDTI
common-rail turbo unit with the three power stages offering either 110
HP (81 kW), 130 HP (96 kW) or 165 HP (121 kW) while the petrol range is
based on the turbocharged 1.4-litre ECOTEC with the two power levels
rated at 120 HP (88 kW) and 140 HP (103 kW). Transmission choices will
include six-speed manuals and automatics.
The 2012 Opel Zafira
will make its official debut at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show in
Germany, and soon after its launch, the automaker is also planning to
expand the range with fuel efficient ecoFLEX models powered by
Compressed
Natural Gas (CNG) and Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG). High performance
powertrains will also be introduced soon after that.
The 2012 Opel Zafira price was not announced yet.
