Geneva motor show: Vauxhall Zafira Tourer

Richard Bremner

Vauxhall has pulled the covers off the Zafira Tourer concept; a preview of a larger cross-over MPV aimed at Ford's successful S-Max, with a production version is likely to be launched within the next year.

The Zafira itself, the best-selling compact MPV of its kind in Britain, will be facelifted at much the same time. The thinking behind the concept is of a lounge on wheels (expect the finished thing to be slightly less luxurious) that combines comfort with exceptional versatility (which we're very likely to see in the real car).
