Vauxhall Zafira Tourer pricing under-cutting Ford S-Max

Vauxhall has confirmed that the price of the all-new Zafira Tourer will begin at £21,000, more than £1,200 lower than its key rival, the Ford S-Max. Despite its highly competitive entry-level price, the Zafira Tourer ES 1.8 (140PS) will be fitted with a comprehensive array of kit as standard including Flex7 seating, active headrests, 7-speaker sound system, 6 airbags, MP3/Aux In connections, cruise control, DAB and air conditioning.

Sitting above the ES in the lineup will be the SRi, Exclusiv, Elite and SE trims. In the lineup of Vauxhall, the Zafira Tourer will be positioned above the recent Zafira model. Also, the Zafira Tourer is set to increase the standard for innovation, flexibility, luxury and design in the MPV sector.

The design of the production vehicle has deviated very slightly from the Geneva concept, illustrating design-chief, Mark Adams’ unrelenting influence on the appearance of all new Vauxhall products, and strengthening his "Sculptural artistry meets technical precision" mantra.

While the Zafira Tourer will still be fitted with the Flex7 seating, which raised the bar for seven-seat integration in the original 1999 Zafira, the system has changed radically in the new vehicle to offer even higher levels of comfort, innovation and flexibility. Elements that further define the Zafira Tourer from the compact MPV Zafira are enhanced material quality, an overwhelmingly airy cabin and more cabin space. Vauxhall's confirmation of the Zafira Tourer's price coincides with its world premier at Frankfurt.
