Opel is describing the Zafira Tourer 1.6 SIDI Turbo as the “most powerful compact monocab” in the world thanks to its 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbocharged engine which churns an impressive 200 HP (147 kW) and a peak torque of 221 lb-ft (300 Nm). The power is sent to the front axle courtesy of a newly developed 6-speed manual gearbox that enables the vehicle to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 8.9 seconds before topping out at 140 mph (225 km/h). When equipped with this engine, the car will have a fuel consumption of seven liters per 100 km (40.3 mpg UK or 33.6 mpg US).
The Opel Zafira Tourer 1.6 SIDI Turbo is going to generate 164 g/km of CO2 emissions and will be sold with red “turbo” badging. Other than that, it will boast a dual exhaust setup and will be available with an array of alloys ranging in size from 17 to 19 inches. Set to be priced “highly competitive”, the car will be available on order starting November.
