All the others had to follow suit – from Volkswagen to BMW. Long back, these times of the Opel triumph, and the family vans are at all. Like the sedan, the whole class of the SUVs out of the market is crowded.

Genuine family vans from dying, not only at Opel, but also at other manufacturers, they are replaced by large-space Transporter, which can be sold in other equipment lines as commercial vehicles. The current Zafira model has except the name nothing to do with the predecessors in common. The new Zafira Life is a classic Großraumvan as the Multivan from Volkswagen.

the chassis of The Opel is emphasized comfortable. An optional air suspension there is not. The two-litre Diesel is already in the low speed areas of a very powerful on-the-go. The Opel Zafira Life can you get with an all-wheel drive from Dangel. The automatic transmission is convinced, however, of the four-cylinder works relatively loudly. The standard fuel consumption is depending on the wheels, weight, and body version between 7.0 and 8.1 litres of Diesel. In 2024, there will be the Zafira Life with an electric drive, which makes it for Shuttle services, or artisans interesting.

Variable interior

the interior of The Opel Zafira Life was highly variable – here, Opel has learned. The Transporter is to get five, six, seven and eight Seats; on request also with leather interior. In the luxury there are even heated front seats with massage function and four leather chairs for the passengers with a comfortable 48 centimetres of seat width. The passenger is allocated a seat, can fit up to 3.50 meters long objects in the Zafira Life. The third-row seats can be completely kill.

more space is when the seats are expanded. An electric door opener for the two sliding doors, however, costs extra. The entire tailgate will not open electrically, the window swings open by itself. Unfortunately, the seven-inch touch screen and the navigation system are out of date.

Buy the Zafira Life 2.0 Diesel M with 177 HP. This model costs at least 51.750 Euro. A lot of money for a Vauxhall – it will show whether the list prices also prevail on the market. A well-equipped and motorized Peugeot Traveller is traded with more than 10,000 Euro discount – this will not be the Opel different.

Despite the name of equality, friends of the old Zafira with the new alignment is not likely to be satisfied. More size does not necessarily mean more joy. A Transporter of this size always remains unwieldy. Also, the price jump to the old Zafira is phenomenal. For old Zafira to friends of the Combo Life is likely to be more interesting. The is a number of small and the Opel variant of the group-siblings Peugeot Rifter and Citroën Berlingo.

The Zafira ‘Life’ is an offer for all, the dream of a Multivan, but a little less than VW want to pay.
