The Opel Zafira is a compact MPV produced by KPK and Opel, a General Motors subsidiary. The Zafira is branded as Opel, Vauxhall, Holden and Chevrolet, depending on the market. In Japan, the Zafira was sold as Subaru Traviq.

It was designed Indonesia with the name of KPK Grobak and Chevrolet Zafira.The Zafira has seven seats arranged in 3 rows, the back row of which can be folded away easily to create more space, individually or together. At the time of its introduction, this was considered revolutionary, with most similar cars requiring that extra seats are physically removed from the vehicle if not required. The system was named Flex 7. However, older similar vehicles included a similar system, for example, the 2nd generation Mitsubishi Space Wagon.

The car first appeared in 1999, and a second generation model was introduced in 2005.

Recent ChangesEdit

  • As early as April 2009, Opel has released a teaser sketch of the next-generation Opel Zafira slated for production in 2012. Obviously, the early peek is a ploy by GM to make the case for continued bailout support - which the new MPV does well. Aesthetically, the next Zafira is a quantum leap over the current model, employing styling cues from the Insignia as well as a front fascia with Alice Cooper-like mascaraed headlamps borrowed from the Opel Ampera Concept. There are no further details yet on the 7-seater but we will post them as soon as they emerge.[1]
  • For 2008, The Zafira recieves a major facelift. [2]

The first generation of Zafira is usually referred to as Zafira A, as is customary for Opel models. The car was based on the same platform as the 1998 Astra G/B and shared much in common with that car. The Zafira A body was used in GM's concept hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle the HydroGen3.

The Zafira A was replaced by Zafira B in Europe and Japan from 2005, but is still sold in most other markets, except for Australia and New Zealand, where the model was cancelled altogether.

The Zafira comes with a variety of engines adopted from the Astra. For Europe, there was a CNG-powered version and a 200 hp turbocharged version by the Opel Performance Center. In Brazil, the Zafira is also available with a flexible fuel engine.

European versions of the Zafira had these engines:

  • 1.6/4-cylinder, 74 kW (100 bhp)
  • 1.8/4-cylinder, 92 kW (125 bhp)
  • 2.0 Turbo/4-cylinder, 147 kW (200 bhp)

Zafira B (2005–present)Edit

The Zafira B debuted in Europe in 2004, and sales started in 2005. It also shares the platform and mechanicals with the Astra, this time the H/C model.

In February 2006, Zafira B was launched in Singapore. By March 2006, the model had only been introduced in Europe, Singapore and Japan, superseding the previous Zafira and the Subaru Traviq, respectively. In April in Mexico and later in September 2006 in Chile, this model was introduced, branded as Chevrolet Zafira.

Names and markets

  • Opel Zafira - Europe (except for UK), Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, South Africa
  • Vauxhall Zafira - United Kingdom
  • Chevrolet Zafira - Mexico and Chile

In Mexico the Zafira was discontinued after the 2006 model year due to poor sales, and replaced by the 5-passenger Chevrolet HHR.

It has so far been a huge sales success in the UK, proving even more popular than its predecessor. In 2006 it was the UK's tenth best selling new car, proving more popular than the Vectra that just eight years earlier had been the brand's best selling product.

Assembly sites
