Opel Proves That MPVs Can Be Cool – rpmGo.com

Opel Zafira Tourer Concept

Previewing the next generation of the Opel Zafira MPV, the German automaker has released full details of the concept that will be the foundation of the production model. Opel described the concept as a “lounge on wheels” and the design study uses the same style language as seen on the Astra and Insignia models.

The front of the car was inspired by the Ampera EV’s fascia with its LED daytime running lights and fog lights being united in a very sleek boomerang-shaped structure. In comparison to the Meriva, the Zafira has conventional doors and offers a dynamic appearance thanks to the ascendant midline and the generous 20-inch wheels.

The back of the car is also quite sporty, dominated by the high-positioned tail lights and the two big exhaust pipes that are integrated into the rear apron. A very cool thing about the Zafira is its panorama windshield that is continued by a glass roof covering the entire length of the roof, offering an airy interior. Inside the cabin, there is plenty of space for up to seven passengers with the concept building on the company’s Flex7 seating concept that we first saw on the Zafira.

Under the hood there is a new version of the automaker’s 1.4-liter gas turbo power unit, equipped with the start/stop technology that reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
