According to AutoBild, the MPV will grow in size to measure 4690mm long, 1820mm wide, and 1690mm tall. This will result in a more spacious cabin, which particular attention paid to the second and third rows. Speaking of the latter, the Zafira will adopt a Flex-7 seating system that allows the rear seats to be folded individually in a single motion.
On the styling front, we can expect an Ampera-inspried front end (as previewed by a leaked design sketch) and a sporty profile. Inside, the interior will be vastly improved with a design reminiscent of the Insignia and Astra.
Under the hood, a variety of engines will be offered. The petrols are expected to have output ranging from 120 hp (89 kW / 122 PS) to 180 hp (134 kW / 183 PS), while the diesels will produce 110 hp (82 kW / 112 PS) to 160 hp (119 kW / 162 PS). They will be mated to the usual transmission choices, but in the future, a dual-clutch gearbox will be offered.
The Zafira is scheduled to debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, so stay tuned for continuing coverage
