An interactive configurator believed to have been made for Opel’s German website, has provided us with the first interior and exterior imagery of the facelift 2017 Zafira Tourer, ahead of the minivan’s world premiere in Paris this Autumn.
The update comes five years after the introduction of the current generation Zafira.
For now and to keep the Zafira relevant, GM is giving the Zafira a lifeline with a mild refresh that includes some exterior and interior revisions.
On the outside, the front end gets newly styled headlamps, bumper and grille abandoning the boomerang accents and bringing it more in line with the latest Astra and Corsa, while the rest of the body appears to remain unchanged.
Inside, the 2017 Zafira gets a new dashboard with a more modern layout that includes a redesigned instrument panel and center console that incorporates a larger infotainment screen with less buttons. It should also get OnStar along with added features like Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indication and the Forward Collision Alert with Collision Imminent Braking that debuted in the Astra. It doesn’t look like they made any other changes to the interior, so in all likelihood, it will retain the same space inside.
What the pictures don’t tell us is whether there will updates to the Zafira Tourer’s powertrains, but it shouldn’t be long before we find out.
