Based on a Renault Trafic the Vivaro was since the purchase by PSA a small task in the Opel range. It disappears in favor of a brand new model that matches the brand's new situation, Zafira Life.
On this occasion, Opel has decided to give up the old name for a new, clearly directed to the Zafira minivan name. This model was precisely pushed to the exit by this new van.
The Zafira Life is neither more nor less than a clone of the Peugeot Traveler, the Citroën SpaceTourer and the Toyota Proace Verso. It is currently only available in its version for individuals, but the declination program will follow immediately.
Apart from some characteristic style elements (essentially the grill), Zafira Life faithfully reproduces the recipe of its cousins. It is therefore more or less long in three versions, which can accommodate all up to nine people: the small of 4.60 meters (10 inches less than the Zafira), the middle of 4.95 meters and finally the width of 5, 30 meters. It also benefits from complete equipment that includes, as standard or optional, a reversing camera, a front and rear parking radar, a traction aid, an automatic emergency brake to detect pedestrians, lane departure warning or Adaptive Cruise Control. Those looking for an ultra-equipped van can opt for a lounge version with four rear leather seats, a removable table and massage front seats. The range will also include a 4×4 version equipped with Dangel four-wheel drive.
Opel has not revealed what the engines suggest, but the logic is that we'll find the ones available for its cousins, namely the BlueHDi 120, 150 and 180 hp. A fully electric version will round off the 2021 offer.
The Zafira Life will be shown for the first time at the Brussels exhibition, which will open in a few days. It will be available from February.
