Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Hits European markets in Q4 this year.
Opel introduced a facelift for the Zafira MPV, which will go on sale in European markets in Q4 this year. Here’s a brief pictorial comparison of the new Zafira and the outgoing model.
The front-end of the new Zafira receives a bulk of the exterior changes. It loses the quirky boomerang-shaped headlamps for a conventional pair with LED daytime running headlamps, and features a redesigned grille with a new mesh pattern and updated bumper.
The profile and rear-end look largely identical to the outgoing Zafira, save for new alloy wheel design, updated light cluster for the taillamps. The styling of the new Zafira is impressive enough to bag an “Autonis” design award as well as best design newcomer for 2016.
The interior has undergone a more significant change, borrowing cues from the critically acclaimed 2016 Opel Astra. The 2017 Opel Zafira features a new steering wheel, new instrument cluster, redesigned dashboard housing the latest generation IntelliLink system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The facelift also introduces a slew of safety features like Adaptive Forward Lighting LED headlights, a new-gen Opel Eye front camera, High Beam Assist, Traffic Sign Assist, Following Distance Indication, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control.
