After the people’s positive reaction of the Zafira Life minivan, the manufacturer decided to give more premium materials to the upcoming 2021 Opel Zafira model and make it more competitive on the market. According to the latest rumors, the next model will be available with few engine options alongside the new all-electric variant.
If this is true, the Opel will be the second one manufacturer that will use this technology. The first electric minivan that is presented to the public comes from the Chevrolet company and is called the Portal.
2021 Opel Zafira Design
The design of the 2021 Opel Zafira will be based on the current Life model. Furthermore, the upcoming model is caught testing on German roads these days. The test mule that is caught testing has camo and very little details are visible. However, according to the rumors, the new model will look more attractive and futuristic.
From the images that we got, the new model looks smaller than the Life model, and it comes with the more conventional wheels and tires. Also, as we can see the two-piece panorama glass roof is present. The back also showcases a similar taillight design and tailgate spoiler as on the Life model.
Interior Changes and Updates
The upcoming 2021 Opel Zafira is the minivan that will offer spacious cabin and it will feature great techs inside. Unfortunately, there are no available images right now to show what we can expect. However, according to the reliable source, the new model will use most of the techs and materials from Life model.
So, we can expect top technologies and the highest level of comfort. Also, very rich state-of-the-art driver assistance and infotainment systems will be highlights of this minivan. Furthermore, more standard features will be available like head-up display, intelligent speed assistant, 180-degree panorama reversing camera and IntelliGrip electronic traction control. Security will be also on a high level, and we can assume great ratings in the safety departments.
