Following in the tyre tracks of the Astra and Insignia bi-turbo models, Vauxhall has introduced state-of-the-art, sequential twin-turbo diesel technology to the Zafira Tourer range.
Powered by a 2.0-litre, 195PS diesel engine, the Zafira Tourer BiTurbo has a maximum speed of 135mph and can achieve 0-60mph in just 8.5 seconds, making it one of the fastest diesel-powered, seven-seater MPVs on the market. Start/stop technology also helps the Zafira Tourer BiTurbo achieve an impressive combined fuel economy figure of just 50.4mpg and emissions of 149g/km CO2.
Sophisticated sequential bi-turbo technology provides a high power output, an instantaneous throttle response and extraordinary pulling power from a wide torque plateau. It expands the Zafira Tourer’s broad powertrain offer, which now comprises four diesel and two petrol engines.
The Zafira Tourer BiTurbo is available in either SE, SRi or Elite trims with a range of options, including FlexRide adaptive chassis-control system, adaptive forward lighting (AFL) system, and a panoramic windscreen that floods the cabin with natural light.
Extra flexibility inside the Zafira Tourer is provided by the new-generation Flex7 seating system, including our unique lounge-seating options which give passengers an unprecedented amount of space in the second row.
Available to order now with prices starting from £27,685 on-the-road, the first Zafira Tourer BiTurbo models will arrive in showrooms in spring 2013.
“Vauxhall is currently the only manufacturer to offer a sophisticated bi-turbo engine on a seven-seat MPV,” said Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director. “It provides a perfect blend of high performance, impressive fuel economy and premium class quality in a seven-seat layout.”
