Geneva motor show: Vauxhall Zafira Tourer



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).

Vauxhall-Opel chief designer Mark Adams explains that, 'we have transferred the idea of a relaxing lounge to a vehicle and created an automobile oasis, a place to relax and enjoy. The Zafira Tourer Concept's exterior design also makes a bold statement with its sleek, flowing lines and premium feel.'

The Zafira Tourer features conventional doors, unlike the small Meriva, and adopts the blade-like headlamp design of the Ampera extended-range EV.

It also has an exceptionally large panorama glass roof that joints directly to the front windscreen, to provide an airy cabin ambience.

The production version will be called Zafira, but have an additional name added to it to distinguish it from the model we know already.
