GERMAN marque Opel will add the Zafira Tourer people-mover to its range later this year.
After launching about 18 months ago with the light-size Corsa, small-size Astra and mid-size Insignia (and recently adding performance versions of all three), the Zafira Tourer is a welcome addition.
Full pricing and specifications will be announced closer to launch.
The seven-seat people mover will be powered by the choice of a 1.6-litre turbo petrol or 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine.
Inside, is a Flex7 seating concept which alloys the third row of seats to be folded into the floor. The second row has three individual seats which can also be folded flat.
There are more than 30 storage compartments as well as a multifunctional FlexRail centre console.
Opel Australia's managing director Bill Mott is talking up the Zafira Tourer - but its the Mokka SUV he desperately wants in the Australian market but is constrained due to global demand.
"With such an emotive and dynamic design combined with unparalleled functionality and flexibility, we feel the Zafira Tourer presents a compelling offer to any Australian family," he said.
"The Zafira Tourer has long been Opel's flexibility icon. Whether you're on duty for the Saturday morning school sports activities or needing to collect guests and their luggage from an airport, the Zafira Tourer provides you the flexibility, seating options and space to be able to do it all, in great style."
