Designed to appeal to company car users, Tech Line Zafira Tourers include sat-nav, Bluetooth, 17-inch alloys and tinted glass
21 June 2012

Vauxhall has boosted the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer line-up with the introduction of its Tech Line specification, which is already available on Astra, Insignia and Mokka models.

Designed for company car users, Tech Line Zafira Tourers include sat-nav, Bluetooth, DAB, 17-inch alloys, tinted glass and chrome flourishes to the car’s exterior.

Four engines are offered with the new specification and include two petrols – a 138bhp turbocharged 1.4-litre or 138bhp 1.8-litre version – plus two 2.0-litre diesels in either 128bhp or 163bhp flavour.

The lower powered and most economical diesel achieves a claimed 62.8mpg and 119g/km CO2. The model also sits in Benefit in Kind band 17, placing it two bands lower than its Ford Grand C-Max Zetec rival. Total BiK payable for both models are £2340 and £2489 respectively.

The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer is available to order now ahead of deliveries in September. Prices start from £19,785 for the entry-level five-speed 1.8-litre car and rise to £23,395 for the range-topping six-speed automatic diesel.

I think this is a very good design.

I can’t think of any other mainstream manuafacture that would sell in the same model an old expensive to run engine, the 1.8, alongside the modern cheaper to run 1.4 turbo with exactly the same power output and only a £300 price premium. It would pay for itself in a little over a year.

True, but some employers mileage reimbursment schemes are behind the times and still pay out on the basis of engine size so someone may make enough more on a 1.8 to be better off, even with worse economy.
