Here are images of Vauxhall’s new Zafira concept that has made its public debut at the Geneva motor show.
The Zafira Tourer Concept is ostensibly a show car - but as with last year’s GTC Paris, it’s likely to give a strong indication of the final production model. It shows how Vauxhall is moving the car upmarket to become a rival for the S-Max - leaving the current Zafira to continue, in facelifted form.
Vauxhall’s vice-president of design Mark Adams has described the concept’s cabin as “an automobile oasis”. “We have transferred the idea of a relaxing lounge to a vehicle,” he said. “The exterior design also makes a bold statement with its sleek, flowing lines and premium feel.”
The concept sits on GM’s Delta II platform and its styling takes a mix of cues from the most recent Astra Sports Tourer and, at the front, the Insignia. It features a glass roof and LED edge lighting, and a belt line that sweeps upwards; Vauxhall likens the profile to that of a high-speed train.
