2011 Opel Zafira Tourer Concept Geneva preview

Opel has revealed images and details of the new Opel Zafira Tourer Concept prior to its official Geneva Motor Show debut next Tuesday. The car features an interesting interior design full of technology. It also showcases an in-car environment described by Opel as a "lounge on wheels".

And once you take a look inside, you see exactly what Opel means. The interior showcases seven seats, of which three of them can be removed to transform the Zafira Tourer into a more luxurious four-seat lounge room.

No matter how the seats are arranged though, all of the passengers get to experience the open-air feel of the Zafira Tourer's panoramic glass skylight that occupies the entire length of the roof. This glass roof also lets in loads of natural light, making the cabin feel much larger and more welcoming.

Underneath the bonnet of the Zafira Tourer Concept is a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, offering 103kW of power and 200Nm of torque - an engine also seen in the Chevrolet Cruze and Chevrolet Volt.

Vice President of Design at Opel, Mark Adams, spoke about the car's design character in a recent statement, saying

"We have transferred the idea of a relaxing lounge to a vehicle and created an automobile wellness oasis, a place to relax and enjoy. Passengers can retreat in the lounge. It is a comfortable, roomy space where you really want to be – regardless if it’s for a business trip or to relax for a long journey."

The Opel Zafira Tourer Concept is only a concept at this stage but some of the personality is likely to rub off onto a production model further down the track.

As mentioned, the Zafira Tourer Concept will be unveiled in full detail at the Geneva Motor Show next week. We'll be sure to provide further details then.
