Latest spy pics of Vauxhalls new Zafira Tourer, which will go on sale in the autumn
11 March 2011

These are the latest spy pics of the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer in testing, a car that will go on sale in the autumn.

The large MPV was previewed by the Zafira Tourer concept last week at the Geneva motor show and will sit above the current Zafira in the Vauxhall MPV range, being billed as a larger rival to the Ford S-Max. Seen here in winter tesing, this disguised test mule looks very similar to the thinly-veiled concept, the reduced kink in the rear-side window is the only obvious change.

Inside there’s a new generation of GM Europe’s Flex7 seating system. It offers seven seats as standard, but with two rows in place, the middle seat in the rear pews can fold down to give more shoulder room and central armrests for the outer two passengers. The seating system also offers extended footrests.

But as expected, the Zafira does without the innovative FlexDoor system that was first seen on its smaller brother, the Meriva.

Vauxhall has yet to release any details of powerplants in the new Zafira’s line-up. But the Geneva concept featured a 1.4-litre turbocharged motor with stop-start - and this set-up is almost certain to represent the entry-level model in the range when it goes on sale.Read about the Zafira concept at Geneva plus show pics

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
