New Opel Zafira Life Ready to Hit the Road
The new Opel Zafira Life just made its world premiere at the Brussels Motor Show in January and will be available to order from local Opel dealerships nationwide from Q2 this year. “The Opel Zafira Life is a multi-purpose passenger car tailor-made to customer requirements,” says Managing Director Sales, Aftersales and Marketing, Xavier Duchemin. “Available in two lengths, it covers multiple vehicle segments and makes it easy for customers to find the perfect model. In addition, innovative technologies ranging from IntelliGrip traction control to camera and radar-based assistance systems, and features such as sensor-controlled sliding doors can also now be ordered.”
Practical benefits, comfort and safety are top priorities
The new Zafira Life is available in the 4.95 metre “Medium” and the 5.30 metre “Large” version and is further enhanced by safety and assistance systems such as Hill Start Assist, Cruise Control and Speed Limiter as well as traction control with engine and brake intervention. The bench seat in the second row can be folded down in a 2/3:1/3 split. The driver and front passenger can set the desired temperature via a climate control system; in the rear the darkly tinted Solar Protect heat-absorbing glazing also helps maintain a comfortable temperature. Laptops and other electronic devices can be connected in all three rows of seats via a 12-volt socket.
The new Zafira Life can be configured with space for up to nine people regardless of the vehicle length. Opel also offers equipment options in other Zafira Life variants with five, six, seven, eight or nine seats – some in leather trim – that can be moved on aluminium rails. So high comfort does not come at the expense of practical everyday use – removing the rear seats increases the load capacity to up to 3.4m3.
Another major advantage the Zafira Life offers for city driving is that most model variants are just under 1.90 metres high and can therefore be driven into normal underground or multi-storey car parks without any problems. This is particularly important when it is used as a hotel shuttle, for example, but also for everyone who wants to park their car wherever allowed in heavily frequented urban areas.
Efficient Euro 6d TEMP engine portfolio for lively performance
The new Zafira Life is also well equipped for all applications with its engine portfolio. The range includes state-of-the-art Euro 6d TEMP diesel engines with 1.5 and 2.0 litre displacements. The four-cylinder engines range from 88 kW/100 hp to 90 kW/180 hp. In addition to the efficient Euro 6d-TEMP diesel engines, the new Opel Zafira Life will also be available as an all-electric version at the beginning of 2021. Opel thus continues pursuing its sustainability strategy and the PACE! plan on the way to electrifying the brand.
