31/01/2013 16:44

Vauxhall's family of state-of-the-art BiTurbo vehicles is expanding once more this year, with the Zafira Tourer the latest to receive the update.

Drivers will have the opportunity to choose between three trim levels of the Zafira Tourer BiTurbo – the SE, SRi or Elite – with each as magnificent as the last.

All three trims are fitted with a 2.0-litre 195PS diesel engine, which is able to deliver fuel economy in the form of 50.4mpg and limit CO2 emissions to a respectable 149g/km.

When it comes to taking the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer BiTurbo out on the road, drivers will be able to get the car up to 60mph from rest in just 8.5 seconds and then go on to hit a maximum speed of 135mph.

Vauxhall has also been keen on making its new BiTurbo a breeze to drive, which is highlighted by the fact that the manufacturer has fitted this edition of the Zafira Tourer with its innovative Start/Stop technology.

What's more, an instantaneous throttle response and staggering pulling power from a wide torque plateau keeps the driver in control for every mile of their trip from A to B.

There are a bundle of handy options being made available with the Zafira Tourer BiTurbo as well, such as Vauxhall's new-generation Flex7 seating system, a FlexRide adaptive chassis control system and an AFL adaptive forward lighting arrangement.

The aesthetic appeal of the new Vauxhall Zafira Tourer BiTurbo's interior is also enhanced through the inclusion of a panoramic windscreen, which is designed to flood the car's cabin with natural light.

Summing up the appeal of the Zafira Tourer BiTurbo, Duncan Aldred, the chairman and managing director of Vauxhall, acknowledged: "Vauxhall is currently the only manufacturer to offer a sophisticated BiTurbo engine on a seven-seat MPV.

"It provides a perfect blend of high performance, impressive fuel economy and premium class quality in a seven-seat layout."

The new Vauxhall Zafira Tourer BiTurbo arrives on the UK's roads in the spring.
