Vauxhall’s Flagship Car Gets A New Chiselled Look
The new and refined Vauxhall Zafira Tourer features an enhanced exterior and interior design, cutting-edge connectivity via OnStar, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and innovative Adaptive Forward Lighting LED headlamps.
The new headlamp design, together with a completely new upper and lower grille, set the tone for the design of the new Zafira Tourer. The front headlights have been enhanced, while the sculptural chrome logo bar blends into the headlights making the car look wider. In addition, the typical, precisely chiselled ‘Vauxhall double wing’ daytime running lights characterise the new light cluster design. The wheels are pushed outboard and housed under a muscular wheel arch.
The latest generation IntelliLink infotainment systems with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and OnStar, including 4G/LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, make sure the new Zafira Tourer offers optimum connectivity. Vauxhall is also introducing full LED Adaptive Forward Lighting headlamps to the segment.
On the inside, the new Zafira Tourer comes with a completely new interior and instrument panel, which offers greater forward visibility by utilising a completely new one-piece design. The screen of the infotainment system, which previously sat on top of the centre console, has been replaced with a new integrated screen. The lower position allows for many buttons to be eliminated with the switches now integrated into the overall design. The new seven-inch up-level touchscreen systems have been executed with quality inspired by top-of-the-range tablets. The new, three-dimensionally sculptured steering wheel with the small and efficiently packaged airbag cover is designed to not only look great, but to also put ergonomics at the forefront.
Vauxhall will offer two latest generation IntelliLink infotainment systems for the new Zafira Tourer. R4.0 IntelliLink will bring the world of smartphones to the car, offering both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Vauxhall will also offer Navi 950 IntelliLink for customers looking for an infotainment system with on-board navigation. Vauxhall OnStar is standard in the new Zafira Tourer with Automatic Crash Response and many other features, including Destination Download (with Navi 950) and 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, which enables up to seven devices to be connected.
Two features available in the new Zafira Tourer that increase comfort and reduce stress for the driver are Adaptive Cruise Control and FlexRide. Enabled by a radar located behind the front grille, the Adaptive Cruise Control helps the driver to maintain the selected speed while keeping a pre-set distance to the vehicle ahead. In addition to speed, the desired gap to the vehicle ahead can also be selected by the driver. Elsewhere, the adaptive mechatronic FlexRide chassis continuously adapts vehicle behaviour to the driving situation, style and the individual preferences of the driver.
The new Zafira Tourer will be arriving at Pentagon Vauxhall showrooms this October. For those wanting more information or to pre-register your interest in the vehicle please contact your local Pentagon Vauxhall dealership.
