Opel released their third generation concept named 2011 Opel Zafira. It is not the funky flex door with rear-hinged rear doors of the Meriva to get, and will continue to use conventional five-door layout space.

New Zafira will be available with three engines 1.4 L Ecotec Turbo 120 and 140 horsepower, 1.6 L 180 hp turbo diesels and next, the good old 1.7 L CDTI back into service in 110 and 125 hp while the The 2.0 CDTI should be available in 140 and 160 horsepower. It is based powertrain options is the same, which means that the range of 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter turbo diesel and 1.7-liter and 2.0-liter diesel closes .

New Opel Zafira include the panorama roof system with integrated storage compartments and power operated shading system, as well as the IDSPlus chassis with electronic continuous damping control. Other features include steering-linked AFL bi-xenon curve light, trailer stability assist, Hill Start Assist and the Open & Start keyless entry system. It includes eight airbags, active head restraints, ISOFIX child seat fixtures and Opel’s Pedal Release System, which decouples the pedals in the event of a frontal impact. In the Euro NCAP crash test, the Zafira achieved the maximum rating of five stars for passenger protection, and it also boasts excellent child and pedestrian protection.

The all new Opel Zafira was introduced back in 2001 and heavily updated in ’05. A face-lifted version with additional powertrain choices hit European dealers in February 2008. But here’s the kicker. As part of GM’s contract with the United Auto Workers, a variant of an upcoming redesigned Zafira may be built in the U.S. and could be sold here starting in 2011 as an addition to the Chevy lineup. Dubbed Orlando, the new Chevy version will have bolder styling than its Opel cousin, but the basic layout will closely mirror the Zafira. The 2011 Chevrolet Orlando will likely be marketed as a thrifty compact crossover SUV, not a small minivan. It’s the same approach used for the only other such vehicles on the American scene.
