Last week, we published a set of images from a GM website depicting the new Opel Zafira. Opel has since unveiled the new Zafira, and it looks like the photos sent to us by an unnamed reader were accurate, as they showed the production variant of the new German MPV. Now, let us move on to the new model from Russelsheim.
Opel’s latest MPV comes with numerous new features, as well as a thorough redesign. First of all, the new Zafira has infotainment systems that provide smartphone integration and a Wi-Fi hotspot.

The seven-seat “lounge” configuration of the Zafira, with its three rows of available seats, has been maintained.

Zafira's base version comes with five seats, as with other models in the class. This makes perfect sense from a money point of view, as most people might not want to pay for seven seats if they do not use them.

Moving on to the design of the Zafira. The car has ditched the “boomerang” headlamps in for a more conventional approach. The headlights look like those from the new Astra K, as does its front bumper and engine grille. The common elements are normal, as the Zafira is Astra’s platform sibling, but the components cannot be swapped between the two models.

On the inside, Opel’s new Zafira comes with a simplified dash layout. This is a trend which most carmakers have followed, and General Motors’s German branch did have a lot of buttons on the center consoles of its cars. Most of them, including the Zafira’s, have been integrated into the seven-inch multimedia touch-screen unit called IntelliLink 4.0. GM’s renowned OnStar system is also available in the new MPV, and customers that choose the Navi 950 unit will also get a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot.

On a technical level, the new Zafira comes with Opel’s FlexRide adaptive damper control, an Adaptive Cruise Control system, and many driver aids and assistance systems. The German company will announce the range of engine options for this model soon, but have not specified any details about them, except for the fact that Opel prides itself on the Zafira being the only model in the segment available with gasoline, diesel, LPG, and CNG engines.
