2012 Opel Zafira Tourer MPV Returns 44mpg

Industry News

The fuel-efficient 2012 Zafira Tourer is moderately priced and seats 7.

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.

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.
