In Europe and few more markets, the Zafira is in the company of most popular MPV models. The current generation is on the market since 2011 and latest reports suggest we could see a redesign pretty soon, already for the 2020 Opel Zafira model. This sounds logical, considering that the current model is based on the previous generation of the popular compact car Astra. The new model would come with lots of improvements, starting from a new platform, which would bring better driving characteristics, a higher level of comfort and more efficient ride. At the moment, we are still waiting for the official confirmation, though many reliable sources see the potential redesign as a certain thing.
2020 Opel Zafira Redesign
The redesign of this MPV will definitely bring lots of improvements. The current-generation model is on the market for almost 8 years, which seems like a pretty long period for the segment, where several competitors are much younger. In any case, count on a new platform. Once again, it will be based on the Astra. This means that the 2020 Opel Zafira would adopt the new version of the company’s familiar Delta platform. In practice, this would mean better dynamics and overall driving characteristics, as well as a higher level of comfort. Compared to the outgoing model, it should keep similar proportions and overall shape. Interestingly, the new-generation Astra features a little bit shorter wheelbase compared to the previous model. We will see is the new 2020 Opel Zafira going to come with something similar.
2020 Opel Zafira Styling and Interior Design
Besides complete overhaul in terms of mechanics, count on a new styling as well. At the moment, it is hard to tell how the new 2020 Opel Zafira will look like exactly. Still, there is no doubt that we will see very similar overall shape and proportions. Of course, expect to see a completely new design language, the same that characterize the newest models from the brand. Once again, expect an inspiration from the current-generation Astra. Still, consider that this compact car is on the market since 2015, so further aesthetic upgrades are possible. Same goes to the interior design, which should also come with a similar dashboard layout, characterized by lots of hi-quality materials and soft-touch surfaces. Of course, count on the latest tech updates as well, including some advanced safety and driver-assist systems.
2020 Opel Zafira Engines
In this aspect, we have no doubt that the 2020 Opel Zafira will stick very close to the current-generation Astra. This would mean a whole palette of gasoline and diesel engines. When it comes to gasoline units, base models will probably feature a small 1.0-liter unit with three cylinders, which is good for 105 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque.
The next in the line is a 1.4-liter unit, which comes in three output versions, with 100, 125 and 150 horsepower. Finally, there is a 1.6-liter engine, which features a max output of 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque.
When it comes to diesel units, there is a familiar 1.6-liter engine, which comes in four output variants. The base version is good for about 95 horsepower, while a version with 110 and 125 hp is also in the offer. Finally, you can go for a twin-turbo version. This one features a max output of 160 horsepower and 158 pound-feet of torque. All engines could be paired with either manual or automatic transmission.
2020 Opel Zafira Release Date and Price
Once we get an official confirmation of this redesign, we can count that the 2020 Opel Zafira will come sometime in the second half of next year. In terms of price, we don’t expect to see significant changes compared to the current model, which starts 30.000 dollars.
