The medium MPV, which has been on sale in its current form since 2011, gets updated exterior and interior design, new connectivity options and more driver assistance features.
Vauxhall has given the Zafira Tourer modified front and rear bumpers, bringing the car more in line with its hatchback offerings, and in particular the latest Vauxhall Astra. In fact, Vauxhall design boss Mark Adams says the Astra was the major inspiration for the Zafira’s design.
Other new features include adaptive LED headlights, which automatically adjust to nine different settings depending on the road conditions.
Inside, there’s a new centre console and dashboard design, again in keeping with models like the Astra and Insignia, and a larger 7.0in infotainment screen in the centre.
Two versions of Vauxhall’s IntelliLink infotainment software will be offered: the R4.0 version allows drivers to control their smartphones using the set-up via the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto applications, while the Navi 950 version comes with satellite navigation.
Vauxhall’s suite of OnStar connectivity services has also been upgraded, and can now act as a WiFi hotspot for up to seven devices.
The updated Zafira’s interior dimensions haven’t changed, meaning there’s still space for seven passengers inside, and the same 710 litres of storage space on offer (rising to 1860 litres with the second row of seats folded away).
