Video: All-New 2012 Opel Zafira Minivan Revealed


Although it's set to debut this September at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, Opel has decided to unveil their new seven-seat minivan several months early. The 2012 Opel Zafira Tourer has been completely redesigned with sleek styling and a more premium feel that's not typical for the minivan segment. The production model also remains quite similar to the concept design, with its streamlined shape and unique front end "boomerang" graphics around the headlights to the fog lamps.

The interior also takes various design cues from the concept, along with other details from models such as the latest Astra. There are new color and trim options along with an optional panorama windscreen that flows into a glass sunroof that extends all the way to the rear of the vehicle. Opel's trademark Flex7 seating system has been improved, now coming with three independent seats in the middle row that can be folded flat. They can also be moved separately from each other by sliding forward and back.

In addition, there's an optional lounge seating system that allows for the back of the middle seat in the second row to be folded down and rotated, allowing for armrests for the left and right seat passengers. Engine options include three versions of Opel's 2.0-liter CDTI turbo diesel with 110hp, 130hp, and 165hp.

There are also two EcoTec turbocharged gasoline engines with either 120hp or 140hp. The video is a nice showcase of the new Zafira, but it's best to turn off the volume in order to avoid the elevator music playing in the background.
