Opel is launching a new version of the Zafira Tourer which comes with one of the firm’s newest engines. Wearing the “1.6 CDTI ecoFLEX” moniker, this new flavor of the Zafira Tourer is motivated by a 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter CTDI turbodiesel engine rated at 120 PS (88 kW) and a peak torque of 236 lb-ft (320 Nm). Power is channeled to the front wheels with help from a six-speed manual transmission which according to Opel has been designed in such a way so that it has fewer frictions. To cut fuel consumption as much as possible, the engine benefits from a start/stop system as well as brake energy recuperation.
The Opel Zafira Tourer 1.6 CDTI ecoFLEX is capable of returning 52.2 mpg US (62.7 mpg UK or 4.5 liters / 100 km) with corresponding CO2 emissions of just 119 g/km. The model is already available on order at home in Germany where it carries a starting price of 26,850 euros, taking into account the value added tax.
