Old Zafira to continue alongside new
19 October 2011
Vauxhall has confirmed the current Zafira will continue "for the foreseeable future", despite its replacement arriving in January.
The brand is attempting to move the new Zafira Tourer up a segment, as it has tried with the Meriva mini-MPV, and is targeting Ford's S-max, rather than the Grand C-max.
Pricing and final specs won't be announced until order books open in November, but Vauxhall has confirmed that the range will start from around £21,000 for the 140hp petrol ES model that's equipped with cruise control. Aircon, DAB radio and USB socket. The range will include, from launch, a 119g/km diesel model.
The current Zafira will sit between Meriva and Zafira Tourer. "We'll keep the current Zafira for the foreseeable future, several years," said a spokesman. "If you are in the market for a good-value seven seat with no frills you would look at it."
