The Opel/Vauxhall Zafira Tourer 2.0 CDTI BiTurbo is the model that sits at the top of the Zafira range and is powered by a 2.0-liter CDTI engine with a nice pair of turbochargers delivering 195 horsepower and 400 Nm of maximum torque. This cool diesel unit allows the popular 7-seater to reach a top speed of 218 km/h (136 mph), but it turns out that this model is noy going to be too thirsty when it will have to show up at the petrol station: combined fuel consumption in fact is rated at just 5.6 liters per 100 kilometers. Acceleration and pickup are just as valid, with a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 8.9 seconds and a progression from 80 to 120 km/h in 8.5 seconds in fifth gear.
The most powerful Opel Zafira Tourer of the lot will be available from April in Germany at a price of € 35,405, which actually is not that appealing as the other figures. The very same 2.0 CDTI BiTurbo engine is already available for certain variants of the Astra and Insignia models and provides a supercharging system with dual turbo sequential, which corresponds to a double intercooler: one is water cooled and is specific for the smaller turbine, the other one instead is of the traditional type and takes care of the cooling of the bigger turbine. This technology is basically unique in this segment.
This powerful 2.0 diesel unit completes the engine line-up of the Zafira that in recent months has also welcomed in its ranks the an interesting dual fuel petrol/LPG unit, a 1.4-liter Turbo LPG-Tech delivering 140 horsepower and 200 Nm of peak torque.
