2017 Opel Zafira - A Feast Of Connectivity
|   Monday, June 13, 2016
A unique blend of exceptional versatility and high levels of comfort were the main features of the Opel Zafira since 1999 when the company founded in Rüsselsheim revealed to the compact MPV segment its revolutionary integrated system with seven seats.
Since then, Opel has sold about 2.7 million Zafira units, especially to families and professionals who need a flexible and spacious vehicle to travel long distances at a high level of comfort.

Soon available to be ordered, the new Zafira will shine not only through its known virtues, such as the Flex7 seating system, AGR certified ergonomic front seats, FlexFix bicycle support, or FlexRide adaptive chassis, but it also comes with a new attractive design both for the exterior and interior, which emphasizes spacious ambience, along with an impressive connectivity offer.


The new generation of infotainment systems, Opel IntelliLink, is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with Opel OnStar (including 4G / LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, where available), and ensures the Zafira offers optimal connectivity for you, your friends and your family when you go on a journey. Moreover, Opel will introduce adaptive LED headlights in this segment to make the Zafira model a comfortable lounge for both its driver and passenger.

Like the previous Zafira generation, both the driver and passengers can enjoy a relaxing journey thanks to the sports seats with six modes of adjustment, which are available as optional equipment, and FlexRail, a multi-functional console system. This modular system includes a roomy storage space and beverage holders that can slide on aluminum rails to the desired position, enabling flexible use of the generous space between the front seats, exactly where it is most accessible and useful. Passengers in the second row can enjoy the unique, optional Lounge Seating.

In its five-seat configuration, the Zafira can carry a minimum volume of 710 liters, according to ISO 3832 (reaching up to 1,860 liters when the second row of seats is folded).

Moreover, it features more than 30 storage possibilities, including the center console FlexRail mentioned above. In addition, the transmission system, FlexFix, in the rear, offers a practical and easy solution to use for cycling enthusiasts. The integrated system unfolds out of the bumper like a drawer and can hold up to four bicycles. Because the loaded bike racks can be tilted, the tailgate can be opened even when FlexFix is fully loaded.

In addition, the new generation of frontal video cameras, Opel Eye, has a positive impact on all compatible road assistance functions, including supporting high beam with LED AFL headlights and traffic sign recognition.

Distance indication (FDI) also uses the front video camera to detect vehicles moving in front, while warning of a frontal collision provides visual and audible alerts, warning the driver when the distance between the car and the vehicle in front decreases too quickly.

A warning when leaving the road is activated automatically at speeds above 60 km / h and warns the driver if the road is left unintentionally, through a signaling mechanism from the instrument panel accompanied by a warning sound.

Two additional features of the new Zafira that increase comfort and reduce stress levels are adaptive cruise control and FlexRide.
Activated by a radar located behind the grille, adaptive cruise control helps the driver maintain the set speed while keeping a pre-set distance from the vehicle ahead. Meanwhile, the FlexRide adaptive chassis continuously adjust the vehicle's behavior according to road conditions, driving style and individual preferences of the driver.
