The Opel Zafira Tourer Concept combines maximum flexibility with a premium lounge concept in a sculpted exterior design reminiscent of an elegant high-speed train.

Exterior design

The new Opel Zafira Tourer Concept takes the current Opel design language another step forward. Twin trapezoid grilles give a sporting front aspect. Bi-xenon headlamps with signature wing lights are housed in single aerodynamic units. At the rear the light clusters extend the belt line into a wrap-around structure that integrates with the chrome badge bar.

A waistline upsweep emphasizes the sculptural nature, helping give an overall expression similar to a high-speed train. Polished aluminum aerodynamic mirror housings highlight the detailed attention given to reducing wind noise. 20-inch dual spoke alloy wheels add a further sporting element. The use of new textured finishes and materials, such as the polished aluminum housings for the fog lamps, and the contrast between the polished spokes and textured rims of the wheels also helps lift the perception of quality and distinctiveness.

Interior design

Clarity plays a big part in comfort and well-being in the first row, where a large touch-screen display dominates the center console. A covered storage compartment above that can hold a tablet PC like an iPad. The heating can be controlled over two turn knobs below the display, and air conditioning via touch-buttons.

Opel Zafira Tourer Concept interior is bathed in light thanks to a panorama windshield that seamlessly flows into a generous glass roof which extends to the rear of the car. A special touch is a second pane of high-tech composite material that is edge-lit by LEDs. Tiny metallic particles are embedded in the plastic to reflect the light and give off a cozy, warm light that can be varied in different shades of yellow. This reinforces the homey lounge ambiance and lends the interior a glowing character.

A lounge on wheels

In the Opel Zafira Tourer Concept, Opel engineers further developed the seven-seat Flex7® seating concept pioneered by the Opel Zafira, making it more sophisticated than ever.

The third row can still be completely folded down flush with the floor in the innovative Opel Zafira Tourer Concept. Fully automatically at the push of a button, the five-seat configuration can then be transformed into a roomy four-seat rear cabin with first-class feeling and lounge character. Thanks to a clever new folding mechanism, the back of the middle seat in the second row folds to offer comfortable armrests for the passengers in the outer seats. These then slide back and towards each other, creating maximum space for passengers’ arms and legs and thus ensuring optimal comfort. With extended footrests, perfect seating for relaxation is created – the ideal place to unwind.With this feature, Opel redefines flexibility and brings it to a next, higher level

Wing-chair comfort

The seats in high-quality caramel leather underline the luxurious lounge feeling.

The tiltable three-piece headrests are also electrically powered and add to the spacious first-class character of the Opel Zafira Tourer Concept’s cabin. For safety reasons the headrests remain in vertical position for the driver when the car is in motion. In the lounge setting, with the exception of the driver headrest, they swivel 90 degrees to the horizontal position while the outer elements slightly curve forward – pure wellness for the passengers.
