Following on from the success of their bi-turbo technology in the Astra and Insignia models, Vauxhall has introduced the cutting edge, sequential twin-turbo diesel unit to the Zafira Tourer range.
The new BiTurbo model will be available in three trim levels, the new Vauxhall Zafira Tourer SE, Sri and Elite and makes use of the 2.0 litre diesel engine (195PS) taking the vehicle from 0-60mph in a mere 8.5 seconds with a top speed of 135mph. This would surely meet the vast majority of power requirements in an MPV car as the new twin-turbo option makes the Zafira Tourer one of the quickest 7 seater MPV diesels available right now. The new biTurbo option widens the Zafira Tourer offering to customers with four diesel and 2 petrol units now available.
The new Zafira Tourer BiTurbo also makes use of start/stop technology to achieve an impressive fuel economy figure of 50.4mpg (combined) with emissions of 149g/km CO2.
There will be a range of options available for the Zafira Tourer BiTurbo including FlexRide adaptive chassis-control system which reacts instantly to changing conditions and continuously adapts to your driving style, adaptive forward lighting (AFL) system, and a panoramic windscreen that allows more light into the car.
Extra flexibility inside the Zafira Tourer is provided by the new-generation Flex7 seating system which enables the vehicle to be a 7 seater or a 5/6 seater with additional flat load space.
The new 2013 Vauxhall Zafira Tourer BiTurbo should be available in Spring.
