Opel Zafira Tourer Concept: 2011 Geneva Preview
German carmaker Opel has revealed images and details of the new Opel Zafira Tourer Concept which will be formally unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show next week.
From the design stand point, the Opel Zafira Tourer Concept draws more than a few design cues from the Ampera, Opel's version of the Chevrolet Volt, including its extended headlight housings and wide-open air dam.
The rear end of the Zafira Tourer Concept is also sporty, dominated by the high-sitting taillights and the two large exhaust pipes integrated into the rear apron.
LED daytime running lights, bi-Xenon AFL and fog lamps, glass roof, 20-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels or horizontal aluminum bar with the Opel logo, all the extra goodies that make the exterior of a concept look good are used in the Zafira Tourer.
Inside there’s a new generation of Opel’s Flex7 seating system. It offers seven seats as standard, but with two rows in place, the middle seat in the rear pews can fold down to give more shoulder room and central armrests for the outer two passengers. The seating system also offers extended footrests.
Thanks to the flexible and pivot-mounted tablet PCs on the front seat backs, passengers in the second row can comfortably surf the internet or control multi-media applications.
The Zafira Tourer Concept is powered by a new version of the downsized, fuel-efficient 1.4 Turbo offering 103kW of power and 200Nm of torque, featuring Start/Stop technology that provides a smooth ride for all occupants.
The Opel Zafira Tourer Concept also features innovative technologies that enhance comfort and safety such as the FlexRide fully adaptive damping system.
