( Worldcarfans ) - The second generation Opel Zafira was introduced mid-2005 and will receive a minor facelift for 2008 which will be shown to the public for the first time at the upcoming Bologna Motor Show early December.
The facelift consists of two main features, firstly the new front and rear design with plenty of chrome. The front bumper has more flowing lines and a redesigned foglamp casing, with the new lines following through on the side sills and the rear bumper.
Second upgrade are the new engines, namely the new 1.6 liter ECOTEC gasoline engine (replacing the 105 hp 1.6 liter engine) producing 115 hp and a new 1.7 liter CDTI diesel engine (replacing the 100hp 1.9 liter CDTI and 120 hp 1.9 liter diesel) producing 110 hp or 125 hp respectively. So power increases all around combined with higher fuel efficieny.
The Flex7 seating system is still standard on all models and will be available in European dealerships starting February 2008. Alain Visser, Chief Marketing Officer of GM Europe said:"We know that customers are very satisfied with its quality, reliability, functionality and versatility. And now we've made the Zafira even sportier and equipped it with more efficient engines."
