2004 Opel Zafira

2004-07-20 10:51

There is now a choice between the Zafira 1.8 16V Elegance, the Zafira 2.2 16V Elegance, and the Zafira 2.2 16V Elegance with automatic transmission.

The unique Opel Flex-7 seating system offers versatility allowing the vehicle to be adapted to a multitude of seating/load configurations at a moment's notice.

All three-model derivatives are fitted with 16-inch alloy rims as standard and have a full size spare wheel. Roof rails finished in black are standard.

Air conditioning with individual controls to suit passenger requirements is fitted on all three derivatives, as are electric windows front and rear.

Also standard features are electro hydraulic power steering, ABS brakes with EBD, remote central locking, and a transponder key immobiliser system linked to an ultrasonic alarm, radio with front load CD player, map reading lights for front and rear passengers, and a load compartment cover.

Cruise and steering wheel mounted controls for the audio system is also standard.

The Opel Zafira is built around Opel's Dynamic Safety Chassis (DSA) design principle that ensures a high level of crash protection as well as precise handling characteristics.

Frontal crash impact forces are routed through three defined load paths to absorb energy. Side impact protection includes side mounted protection beams and energy absorbing padding on the inside of the doors.

Full size front airbags are provided for the driver and front passenger. Seat belt pre-tensioners add to the effectiveness of the supplemental restraint system. Three point seat belts are provided for all seven seats.

Opel's patented Pedal Release System acts to disengage the foot pedals in the event of a severe impact to reduce the risk of injury to the driver's feet and lower legs.

This plan includes all normal-servicing costs during the period of cover plus the cost of replacing fair wear and tear items such as clutch, brakes, and shock absorbers. This is in addition to the comprehensive warranty cover provided by GMSA.
