Vauxhall Zafira Tourer Reviews
Gone is the time when seven-seaters had names that revealed their transporting ability and utility for extended excursions, which includes Holden Odyssey or the Hyundai iMax. Vauxhall has chosen something which seems just like the principle character in a cheesy fantasy fiction novel or an expert belly dancer in naming the Zafira. It's a great-seeming and somewhat exotic name that suggests at "Sapphire" also "Zephyr". It's the kind of name which would suit a sports car. And it goes to demonstrate that people movers can get their share of dash. After all, if you have a household of the size that needs a seven-seater, it's clear to everybody that you own had quite a bit of interesting already while in order to become all those children.
Going right along now... The Vauxhall Zafira is actually expected to reach Australian coasts at about that time of authorship, inside spite of Vauxhall determining that it is planning on leaving even the Australian marketplace. The Zafira has been part of Vauxhall's master plan for some time, although the business is keeping a bit hush hush about the precise specs of the Vauxhall Zafira we're really planning to get.
The latest Vauxhall Zafira surely looks like a great modern vehicle, with nicely shaped headlights, a smooth side-on profile and front air intake that seem a tiny little sporty. At first glance, the Vauxhall Zafira doesn't seem like an MPV, but looks more like a routine stationwagon, albeit a somewhat larger one. And I enjoy those 16-inch alloy wheels that come as standard on the international versions. The interior decoration is also quite stunning. The designers appear to have gone for a chunkier appearance to the buttons, dials and screens, making everything easy to see and use.

There are two chances for the engine that we'll have inside the Vauxhall Zafira. We might not know for certain just what we'll get but to judge from international versions, it'll be powered by diesel and it will have a 1.7-litre capacity. The difference between the two international choices is in the power result, with the 110-PS Ecoflex engine popping out 81 kW at 3800 rpm and the 125PS handling 92 kW at 4000 rpm. It also seems as though six-speed manual and six-speed transmission are going to be accessible.
The Vauxhall Zafira additionally seems like it's going to get a good dollop of bells and whistles, also. With any luck, we'll get a navigation system as well, like the international ones do. The FlexOrganiser system additionally seems like the type of thing I could do with in my automobile.
