2013 Opel Zafira Tourer | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Opel Zafira Tourer. 2013 Opel Zafira Tourer is one brand new car from Vauxhall-Opel that was released in 2013. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2013 Opel Zafira Tourer.
The new Opel Zafira Tourer makes a very powerful first impression. The new sculptural design language has improved the already functional and highly successful predecessor of the Zafira Tourer and resulted in an even more refined product with premium qualities. Every detail in the cabin interior has been carefully considered. The Zafira Tourer successfully combines practical thinking with a passion for cars. The values of agility and comfort which are embodied in the highly successful Insignia have been transferred to the Opel Zafira Tourer. This has taken the new vehicle to the next level.
Opel has just debuted their fuel-efficient MPV at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. The 2012 Zafira Tourer minivan seats seven and returns an incredible for a MPV 44mpg. First seen at the Geneva Motor Show in March in concept form, the Frankfurt debutant production model stayed true to the design language and remains almost unchanged. The base model features cruise control active headrests, along with their Flex7 seating arrangement technology.
The Zafira Tourer was coming together at the same time as GM seemed to be falling apart. Work began in late 2008 and continued as GM went through Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2009, even as negotiations for the sale of Opel reached an advanced stage. Mere months before GM decided to keep the European brand, responsibility for completing the project was handed over to Germany, recalls Loeb.
When set up to seat four, the Zafira Tourer is genuinely luxurious. The front seats are excellent (they have been officially endorsed by a German back health institute) and face a classily designed instrument panel. Almost as good are the two outboard sections of the three-section center row seat. These can slide more than 11 inches backwards and forwards, with the last few inches of rearward travel also guiding the seats inward. In this position, legroom is superb and shoulder room is generous. This First Class comfort is further enhanced by flipping the center section seatback forward and then rotating a pair of built in armrests into a conveniently elevated position.
The Tourer can also be arranged in a Second Class configuration via an optional third row. In this configuration, the center row moves forward, reducing legroom, though it remains capable of accommodating adults. The third row is good for any pre growth spurt teen, or the occasional small and flexible adult.
Already back in 1999, Opel established the seven-seat compact monocab segment with the first generation of the Zafira. With what is now the third generation, Opel is set to continue the success story. The principle is the same today as it was then: maximum on-board flexibility without seat removal. Offering a perfect blend of functionality and wellness, the new Opel Zafira Tourer brings Insignia values to a compact monocab – premium qualities, innovative technologies and sculptural, dynamic design.
Together with the Meriva, the European number one in small monocabs, the Zafira Tourer makes Opel the benchmark in terms of flexibility. While the second generation Meriva introduced in 2010 offers unrivalled flexibility in a smaller format particularly for young families, the new Zafira Tourer combines even higher versatility with additional premium qualities in interior comfort and atmosphere. This makes it the ideal choice for families with older children or for business people such as photographers or architects who also have to transport bulky objects for their work. All this is easier than ever with the new Opel Zafira Tourer.

2013 Opel Zafira Tourer Interior :
With its upscale exterior and interior smarts, the Zafira Tourer is a minivan with the kind of showroom appeal that could work anywhere in the developed world. Having been born in the USA, was it ever intended to wear Buick badges?… Exterior designer Loeb won’t say, but it is certain that Opel, which is investing a serious amount of money ([euro]11 billion) in product development between now and 2014, wants to go beyond Europe. Boss Karl Friedrich Stracke says the aim is to more than triple the company’s puny 30,000 a year export rate in the next five years, and he’s not too bothered about what badges the shipped cars wear.
The interior of the car has a cinematic feel and is flooded with light because of the generous panorama windscreen. What started out as an optional extra in the 2006 Astra GTC, has now also been made available on request for the new Opel Zafira Tourer. Driver and passengers can with the optional extra enjoy the airy feel of the cabin and the generous views to the outside, thanks to the layout of the glass that stretches all the way to the back of the front row. In addition, there is a sunroof that stretches all the way to the rear of the vehicle. This boosts the airy lounge atmosphere throughout the interior.
2013 Opel Zafira Tourer Exterior :
Its exterior may be inspired by Europe’s high-speed trains, but the core structure of the sleek new Zafira Tourer is an American creation. A team working in GM’s Detroit tech center laid out the body basics of Opel’s new minivan, according to exterior design chief Niels Loeb. To coordinate the German end of the program, three liason engineers were assigned from Detroit to Opel’s home in Russelsheim, Germany.
The silhouette of the Opel Zafira Tourer takes its design cues from the aerodynamic and streamlined shape of a high speed train. The blades on the flanks of the car create a powerful forward motion. The sporty look is reinforced by crisp and sweeping lines. The appearance of the monocab is further enhanced with a smooth line that runs from the front of the roof to the roof spoiler. So the car appears to lie lower. The Zafira Tourer looks very muscular in the optional OPC style which is available for the Edition (EU, Enjoy), Sport and Innovation (EU, Cosmo) variants. The front spoiler, rear lower skirt, side skirt and enlarged roof spoiler give the monocab a sporty feel.
The slender rear lights, again with wing shaped taillight functions, can be fitted with LED technology if required. The horizontal chrome bar between the lamps has the Opel emblem prominently placed and is broad and distinctive. It gives the vehicle a sporty but refined look. The fog lights have been fitted into the bumper at the rear, enabling the rear lights to look more slender.
2013 Opel Zafira Tourer Engine :
The engine range on offer for the new Opel Zafira Tourer will initially consist of highly efficient diesel and gasoline engines with output from 81 kW/110 hp to 121 kW/165 hp. Shortly after the start of sales, an especially low consumption ecoFLEX model with a 2.0 CDTI common rail turbo diesel and standard Start/Stop technology will join the Zafira Tourer family. The Zafira Tourer 2.0 CDTI ecoFLEX, boasts one of the values in the compact monocab class with just 119 g/km CO2. And this comes with spirited performance of 96 kW/130 hp and maximum torque of 300 Newton meters.
Ready for its sales debut in the fall, the new Zafira Tourer is being offered as an optimized 2.0 CDTI Common Rail Turbodiesel in three performance categories: 81kW/110hp, 96kW/130hp and finally as 121kW/165hp at the top of the range. The Opel Zafira Tourer, the new Master of Versatility, is furthermore available with two highly efficient 1.4 liter gasoline turbo engines, of between 88kW/120hp and 103kW/140hp. They are in line with Opel’s engine downsizing strategy. The portfolio is rounded off with the 1.8 liter basic gasoline engine of 85kW/115hp.
Shortly after the sales premiere, Opel will also offer an ecoFLEX version with especially low CO2 emissions. Equipped with the Start/Stop system and further ecoFLEX technologies, the new Opel Zafira Tourer 2.0 CDTI 130hp version emits just 119 g/km CO2, with a fuel consumption of 4.5 liters over 100 kilometers. This makes it one of the lowest emission and most efficient compact monocabs engines ever.
At the start of 2012, the Zafira Tourer Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) 1.6 liter Turbo ecoFLEX will be released with a performance of 110kW/150hp. During the fall of next year, a Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) engine of 103kW/140hp will be added and then other powerful engines will be released later on in 2012.
Flex7 allows, at the touch of a button, seating to increase or decrease from four to seven passengers. Opel is offering several engine choices for their Zafira Tourer. A turbocharged 1.4 liter or 1.8 liter gasoline engine, 2.0 liter CDTi diesel and 2.0-liter ecoFlex are all offered. The latter provides the most efficiency at 44mpg and emits only 119g/km CO2. The German brand’s latest model should be a fast-seller when they start taking orders on November 1 of this year. The 2012 Zafira Tourer prices as £21,000 and undercuts the Ford S Max by over £1,200. Deliveries are scheduled to begin early next year.
