Opel is carrying out the renovation of much of its range of models. Few months ago knew the new Opel Astra and, as is tradition, the redesign of the Opel Zafira come a few months later.
The minivan of the brand has been about four years in the market and therefore not take long time to receive an update. As the Astra, which is the main model of the German brand, has had a complete redesign with generational jump, it was hoped that the Opel Zafira received part of the image of the compact and its technologies, as it has always happened in the seven-seater.
Now, through a few leaks that have come from the own brand Builder, we already know the exterior and interior of the Opel Zafira 2017 future which, in General, will be presented in this present 2016.
As we can see in the pictures, the German minivan will have a profound facelift. Adopts the image showing the new Astra but keeping the base of the 2012 Zafira Tourer. The characteristic front of the current Zafira disappears giving way to a very similar to the compact image, trying to imitate to the maximum in headlamps, grille and bumper bottom air intake. Conversely, lagging behind nearly undamaged except in the pilots lights, although they maintain their shapes, slightly changing the color.
Inside, the changes are very remarkable and attractive. The current Opel Zafirar Tourer used the instrument panel, steering wheel and center console of the Astra’s previous generation, which already have some outdated, especially at visual level. As we can see in the images, the restyling shows a more modern cockpit using the new interior of the compact, much more clean and attractive than the former, leaving behind as much boutonniere and winning practicality.
Regarding safety and driving aid, logically it will introduce all (or the vast majority) of the elements that the C-segment model premiered recently as, for example, notice of involuntary departure of lane, automatic emergency braking or adaptive cruise control.
We have no information regarding the mechanical range, but it is expected to again include the majority of engines available in the Opel Astra.
