Vauxhall has confirmed that the Zafira Tourer concept that was previewed at the Geneva Motor Show will be go into production with the first cars in UK showrooms by early 2012.
Named the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer, it will still feature Flex7 seating, but improved material quality, increased cabin space and a large airy cabin will differentiate it from the standard Vauxhall Zafira.
An important factor for the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer will be safety, will a multitude of driver-assist systems making a first appearance in the new model. These include Traffic Sign Recognition, Side Blind Spot Alert and Advance Park Assist - which will help the driver to find an adequate parking space and then guides them in to it.
A new 1.4 Turbo petrol and a 2.0 CDTi diesel (with three outputs) will join a 1.8 petrol unit, all of which offer a power range from 110PS to 165PS.
The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer's diesel engine comprises three versions of Vauxhall's Euro-5 compliant 2.0 CDTi common rail unit, also available in the vauxhall Astra and Insignia. Power outputs will be 110PS, 130PS and 165PS.
The petrol range sees a downsized 1.4 Turbo unit, which produces 140PS and a naturally aspirated 1.8 litre with 140PS. Start/Stop technology will be available on certain engines, which will be confirmed at a later date.
For the 1.4T and 2.0 CDTi engines, six speed manual transmissions will come as standard, with the option of a six speed automatic available on certain models. The 1.8 litre petrol model will have a five speed manual 'box.
The vauxhall Zafira Tourer will debut at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show.
