The Zafira Tourer range is now getting the BiTurbo treatment, and we think that this is great news. It means another range-topping model which is very conscious of its green credentials. The BiTurbo models feature 162bhp twin-turbo diesel engines and Vauxhall claim that these will be efficient and capable of 50.4mpg whilst emitting only 149/km of CO2 with a little help from the stop-start technology which will come as standard.
This is not bad at all, especially for a large 7 seater like the Zafira Tourer. What’s more, its performance doesn’t sound too shabby either, so lovers of power and speed shouldn’t be too disappointed. Apparently it can do 0-60mph in 8.5 seconds, and it can also achieve a top speed of 135mph, again, when you consider the type of car the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer is; this is impressive.
Whilst you get the stop-start technology you may have to spend a little extra if you want the AFL adaptive headlights, panoramic windscreen or FlexRide adaptive chassis control system. The announced starting price sits at £27,685, you can order now and the first deliveries are expected in spring.
