Instead of the common leak, where a web page is accidentally available to the public, and you can see one or more photos of a car before it’s unveiled, the Zafira was found in an online configurator tool of some sort. A user sent us a link that led us to the facelifted Zafira. Massive hat tip to you, Sir!

As predicted, the Zafira lost its boomerang-headlights. Instead of these, the MPV now has regular headlamps. The front bumper was adjusted accordingly.

We cannot help but look at the old spyshots of the Zafira facelift prototype and be impressed by the skill of the sneaky engineers that tricked our eyes to believe the “boomerang” was kept on the Zafira’s front bumper.

Instead of the boomerang, the Zafira facelift got an all-new bumper, which has a sculpted look and comes with modified air intakes and fog lights. The front grill has been modified, and the front lights look different than those of the Astra K, but rather close to them.

The profile of the Zafira does not seem to have been significantly modified with the facelift. When we think of the front end, any alteration to the profile will appear insignificant by comparison. The rear of the Zafira has also been modified slightly. Its tail lights have been changed, while the rear bumper, fenders, and trunk lid have been altered.

The interior of the Zafira facelift has also been changed, and now it sports an updated multimedia unit, a new steering wheel design, simplified center console, and less overall clutter. The R4.0 Intellink system with OnStar cappabilities should offer more connectivity features, allowing the driver to integrate several smartphone functions via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. 

General Motors' website that leaked these images is still online and accessible as we are writing this article. The configurator tool was likely made for Opel dealers and allows for a 360-degree view of the exterior and the interior, as you can observe in our image gallery.
