With 147 kW/200 hp, the new Opel Zafira Tourer 1.6 SIDI Turbo is the most powerful compact monocab in the market place. Its impressive power is delivered by the high performance version of Opel’s new generation midsize, direct injection gasoline engine. Not only pure power, but also its maximum torque make the new Zafira Tourer 1.6 SIDI Turbo stand out: with 300 Nm (through overboost) achieved from 1,700 to 4,700 rpm, it offers 20 per cent more torque than its closest competitor in the compact monocab segment.
 
The impressive low-end torque results in strong acceleration and exemplary elasticity. Smooth running characteristics and very low-level noise and vibration are a real forte of Opel’s new generation high quality engine. The top-level performance version of the 1.6 SIDI Turbo engine is the fourth new powertrain to be introduced in the Zafira Tourer within twelve months, and it completes Opel Flexibility Master’s portfolio as the most powerful member of the family.

The high-performance 1.6 SIDI Turbo comes with a new six-speed manual transmission that offers smooth and fast shifting with minimal effort expenditure. The combination of its new high performance engine and this softer, sharper transmission further raises the appeal of Opel’s compact premium lounge on wheels. Highly sophisticated adaptive FlexRide chassis technology is also offered in the 147 kW/200 hp Zafira Tourer, as well as state-of-the-art driver assistance systems such as the Opel Eye front camera, the Side Blind Spot Alert and the rear view camera. In addition, the panorama windscreen and sunroof make driving and travelling in the Zafira Tourer an extraordinarily enjoyable experience.

“Our latest and top addition to the Zafira Tourer family, the 1.6 SIDI Turbo with 147 kW/200 hp and 300 Nm of maximum torque sets new standards in the segment of the compact monocabs. It brings out a winning combination of high-level performance and ultimate comfort defined by comprehensive flexibility,” says Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann.
