The Rüsselsheim Opel Zafira Tourer space plane is quieter. Thanks to a new whisper that will make 120 hp, the Van is the class leader in terms of noise and vibration propagation. There's just one catch: The marketing strategists tell of course not the first time around that the small 1.6-liter diesel actually consumes more than its 136 hp great godfather. But of course the engine with less power is for something cheaper. Where to start prices, learn it here.
Who wants that his children can still sleep better at length trips while driving and will not be constantly awakened by a loud roar, which picks up immediately to Opel Zafira Tourer with new whisper with 120 hp. Which complements the 136 hp big brother, who leads the 1.6-liter class since 2013 in Motors portfolio of Opel. The developers have paid special attention to economy and smooth running on the new unit.
The economy with the sounds on a promised fuel consumption of just 4.5 liters per 100 kilometers, although not so bad, but the comparison with the 136 hp version (4.1 l) already shows here first weaknesses. Thus, the weaker is the diesel consumption well above the figures for the more powerful engine. And despite now as standard start-stop system and brake energy recovery system. With the new one is of course a bit slower on the go. It accelerates the car in 12.7 instead of 11.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h. When price is of course the little below the Great: 26,850 EURO have to shell out at least anyway.
