2019 Opel Zafira. The new Opel Zafira is by far one of the most famous Opel vehicles not only in Europe, but in the rest of the world as well. Its popularity can only be matched by Astra, and the competition between the two would be tight. Originally, Zafira started off as a compact MVP, or a multi-purpose vehicle. Since 2011, it has been marketed as a large MVP, and it became known as the Zafira Touring. It is also manufactured by other subsidiaries such as Vauxhall and Holden.
The 2019 Opel Zafira is going to be a very interesting vehicle, and we are going to discuss some of the changes made to the previous model. New 2019 Opel Activa mark the transition Zafira from MPV into crossover segment. The idea to change the segment is old since 2013 when Opel noted a large drop in sales MPV units and general craze for crossovers. We can safely say that Opel few delays which can be a problem in terms of behind the competition. Yet the German company first wants to launch a new Meriva crossover and then Opel Ampera-e electric auto as rebadged version Chevy Bolt.
If next year we see a new Meriva generation could have a close picture of new 2019 Opel Zafira or Activa. The reason is because both models exceed the crossover segment, and it is logical to expect that the company is granted a lot of stylistic solutions. It is interesting that the Meriva will not change the name, or we do not know yet so it will be interesting to hear why the Zafira differently. Perhaps the reason lies because the Opel test Zafira as MPV last year. Perhaps the company wants to have a model of this year as the last edition for fans of this segment while the Meriva wants to finish story.
The redesign would mean big changes and possibly larger dimensions especially if think about the 7 seats. For now an option for five more realistic works. Crossover to a greater distance from the earth and larger tires. Design can found inspiration in Peugeot 3008 with modern and aggressive stance expressed through dynamic lines during body. Slightly lower a rendering as it might look like and probably will not be major discrepancies. Perhaps as real changes can come lower openings in the corners and around the thinner grille. The 2019 Opel Zafira platform provides more space in the cabin and allows the option with three rows of seats.
Perhaps in the beginning it was too much or experience with Peugeot’s models can be taken immediately at least three rows as an option. A new generation and a new name might imply a serious redesign inside. Quality materials, cleaner center console and announced virtual cockpit will be refreshing for the line. For now it is too early to talk about more equipment since the Opel only confirmed his move to a new segment to a promotion remains a lot of time.
Again, as with any other 2019 Opel Zafira model, you are going to be able to choose from a range of possible engine options. One of them is a 1.4-liter EcoFlex engine with the output of 138 horsepower. Another option is the 1.6-liter inline-4 engine that can output 150 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque. Considering the fact that Europe is not as strict as the US with all the fuel economy and gas emission restrictions, we can expect to see a diesel engine as well.
In fact, we would be disappointed if there weren’t one. It would probably be the 1.6 CDTI diesel engine. All of the aforementioned engines come with the front-wheel drive as a standard. They are paired with either 6-speed automatic or manual transmission. The only different option would be a 1.8-liter petrol engine, which would come with a 5-speed manual transmission.
There are very little information at the moment. However, we expect to see the new 2019 Opel Zafira arrive in 2018. Furthermore, we expect to see it quite soon. We estimate that the starting price for the new Opel Zafira will be $34.000, up to the $45.000 for the best trim.
