Vauxhall has added the highly advanced, sequential twin-turbo diesel technology to the Zafira Tourer range. It comes after the arrival of the Astra and Insignia BiTurbo models. The Zafira Tourer BiTurbo is powered by 2.0-litre 195PS diesel engine. It can achieve a top speed of 135mph and can accelerate from zero to 60mph in only 8.5 seconds, making it one of the fastest diesel-powered, seven-seat MPVs available in the market.
In addition, start/Stop technology helps the BiTurbo attain a combined fuel economy figure of only 50.4mpg and has a CO2 emissions level of 149g/km. This sequential BiTurbo technology offers an impressive power output, an immediate throttle response and outstanding pulling power from a wide torque plateau. It broadens the powertrain lineup for the Zafira Tourer, comprising four diesel and two petrol engines.
The Zafira Tourer BiTurbo is offered in SE, SRi or Elite trims with a host of options such as FlexRide adaptive chassis control system, AFL adaptive forward lighting system and a panoramic windscreen that lends natural light to the cabin. The additional flexibility inside the Zafira Tourer is offered by the new generation Flex7 seating system, which includes the distinctive lounge seating functionality that offers passengers generous space in the second row.
The first Zafira Tourer BiTurbo models will arrive in showrooms in spring 2013. Order books are now open for this model, which is priced from £27,685 on-the-road. Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director, said that Vauxhall is the only car company to offer a sophisticated BiTurbo engine on a seven-seat MPV, which gives a “perfect blend” of excellent performance, outstanding fuel economy and premium class quality.
