Opel will be adding an ecoFLEX model to its Zafira Tourer range, shortly after its launch, this autumn. Powered by a 2.0 CDTI engine, the ecoFLEX emits just 119 g of carbon dioxide every kilometre and drinks 4.5 L/100 km (63 mpg) in the combined cycle.

Producing 96 kW/130 hp and 300 Nm of torque, the 2.0 L turbo diesel unit helps the Zafira to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 11.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 193 km/h (120 mph), which isn’t too bad, but owners are probably more interested in the the fuel savings that this seven-seat monocab provides.

These come about thanks to technology such a slightly lower ride height and active aeroshutter within the radiator grille, helping the Zafira Tourer to become more slippery through the air. Low-rolling-resistance tyres are also fitted. Other contributors include the engine start/stop function, and an illuminated dashboard-mounted gauge that lets the driver know when it’s the perfect time to shift up a gear.
