Vauxhall, which sold 36,448 Zafiras in fleet last year, claims the new MPV will have more dynamic driving performance as well as being larger, with a higher-quality interior. The new Zafira will be 150mm longer, 34mm wider and slightly taller than the current model while the Flex7 seating system will also be continued. Vauxhall claims more room for each of its three rows of seats.
There will be two diesel and four petrol engines at launch with power outputs of 100 to 200bhp. The top-of-the-line engine is the 200bhp 2.0 turbo, alongside the new 1.9-litre common-rail turbodiesel CDTi unit.
