2017 Opel Zafira Changes

Since the images with partly camouflaged vehicle appeared on the internet and magazines, increasingly talking about the latest model of the Opel Zafira 2017 is not stopping. Its testing is in progress, and it is noticeable that every time appears the less covered so we can better see its improvements. As it seems at first glance, the most important change that has occurred is an evolution from the family minivan to a very interesting SUV. Now it will be put in a new segment but despite that, the manufacturer has decided to reduce its dimensions. In addition to this change, it will have a different shape, a revised cabin, and more powerful engine. Although it has gone through many changes since it first appeared in 1997 at the auto show in Frankfurt, it is expected that the latest will bring the greatest benefit.

Inside, the 2017 Zafira gains a new steering wheel and the company’s latest IntelliLink infotainment system complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Adding to the list of in-car tech is the Zafira’s 4G LTE Wifi hotspot, which can connect with up to seven mobile devices.

Other updates for the refreshed people mover include Adaptive LED headlights, ‘Opel Eye’ front camera, high beam assist, traffic sign assist, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.

Mark Adams, vice president of GM Europe Design, said: “The front design of the new Zafira takes over the major characteristics [from] the one of the award-winning new Astra, and anchors it in Opel’s new portfolio”.

Crossover SUVs are tearing into the minivan market with gusto; minivan automakers have had to invest more on the designs and features of their minivan brands to keep them relevant in the changing market.  Despite this, GM is still going strong with their Opel Zafira MPV. The current model has been in the market for 5 years having been introduced in 2011. As such, the update couldn’t have come at a better time. The new 2017 Opel Zafira has received a bit of refresh both on its exterior profile as well as on the inside.

2017 Opel Zafira Release Date

The Zafira’s history dates back to 1997 when Opel debuted the seven-seater at the Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany. The Zafira went on sale in 1999 and helped the General Motors’ sub-brand better compete in Europe and other parts of the world. The first generation lasted through 2004 when a completely reworked Zafira debuted for the 2005 model year.

Ironically, when Opel replaced the second-gen Zafira, it didn’t stop its production. Rather, the automaker continued to build both generations side by side, marketing the second-gen Zafira (with a slight refresh) as the Zafira Family. It was slotted as a smaller, less expensive alternative to the third-generation Zafira. The Zafira Family ended production in 2014, leaving the third-gen Zafira to soldier on.

2017 Opel Zafira Specs

From the things which can be seen, the new Opel Zafira 2017 will be reduced, so its dimensions instead of the previous Length 4,660 mm (183.5 inches), Width 1,820 mm (71.7 inches), Height 1,690 mm (66.5 inches), Wheelbase 2,760 mm (108.7 inches). The characteristic headlamps which many claims to have a boomerang shape will get the more standard form. The reason for this is the use of the latest LED technology. The honeycomb shaped grid is likely to be replaced by one with horizontal holes. Back side is not expected to change much since it already looks quite modern and uses parts of the new generation. However, it will feature large rear doors and a spacious trunk.

The exterior profile features a number of upgrades. At the front, the model will have new headlights. It seems Opel has done away with the boomerang accenting which featured fog lights and turn signals in favor of the styling featured on the Corsa and Astra. The front bumper has also been slightly modified. The grille is also new. For the grille, Opel has replaced the honey-comb looking inserts with horizontal bars. The lower air dam has also been revised.

At the rear, the tailgate and taillights have not been altered. However, the bumper and quarter panel we saw on the testing mule were camouflaged which suggests they have been changed. Other features of the model remain including its large rear doors, tall greenhouse and compact dimensions that have made it a favorite in the MPV segment.

The interior of the Opel Zafira 2017 brings some surprises. For starter, there will be three separate seats in the second row of three total. A good impression will provide high-quality leather on them and soft materials throughout the cabin. The colors will be selected carefully so we cannot see too aggressive ones. Another big change is in the technology. Opel will use the IntelLink system that will provide many benefits. One of those is the reduction of physical commands which will affect the functionality, but also more beautiful appearance. Best of all is that the new system will support both- Android and Apple. For more details, we will have to wait for some time, but with no doubt, there will be modern features such as dead angle camera, automatic climate and so on.

The model we captured doing testing was under camouflage and only little could be seen about its cabin. However, interior sources intimate that the Zafira will have a new dashboard with a modern layout. The center console and instrument panel has been redesigned. The new center console features a larger infotainment system screen with less buttons which results in a cleaner look.

2017 Opel Zafira Engine

The engine of Opel Zafira 2017 can only be guessed. The stories tell that base model will have 1.4 liters EcoFlex LPG-burning option engine with 138 hp at 4,900 – 6,000 rpm. Another option is a petrol engine which will include a 1.6-liter inline 4 unit with outputs of 150 hp at 5,000 rpm and 155 lb·ft of torque at 2,300 – 5,000 rpm. A somewhat weaker variant which includes diesel will rely on 1.6-liter engine and will be able to create up to 134 hp. The manual 6-speed transmission will be standard while the automatic is an option.

As of this writing, there has been no concrete information about the lineup of Zafira engines. From the rumors, the base model will be a 1.4 L. EcoFlex LPG capable of 138 hp. Another engine that will be on offer is a 1.6 L, 4-cylinder engine which is capable of 150 hp and 155 lb-ft of torque. The base diesel engine is rumored to be a 1.6 L mill which produces 134 hp.

These are all rumors, but one thing is sure though, the model will come with many alternatives.  Currently, the Zafira is offered in 3 petrol engines, two diesel engines with the larger diesel mill further tuned into five different flavors.  The current model also offers an LPG as well as a CNG burning mill. All engines are 4-cylinder units and are transversely mounted.  I expect a similar lineup for the 2017 Opel Zafira.
