Vauxhall has introduced the new 2012 Zafira Tourer at the Frakfurt Motor Show. The vehicle will be positioned above the current Zafira model in Vauxhall's line-up and is set to raise the bar for design, luxury, flexibility and innovation in the MPV sector.

There are four trim levels: Exclusiv, SRi, SE and Elite.

The base model is priced at just £21 000 and it comes with an air conditioning, DAB, cruise control, MP3/Aux In connections, 6 airbags, 7-speaker sound system, active headrests, and Flex7 seating.

There are also two new engines – a 1.4 Turbo petrol and a 2.0 CDTi diesel with three outputs, including a 119g ecoFLEX version – join a 1.8-litre petrol unit. This means that you'll be able to choose from 110PS to 165PS.

A great emphasis has been placed on safety in the Zafira Tourer, with a plethora of driver-assist systems making a first appearance in the new model. Traffic Sign Recognition, Side Blind Spot Alert and Advance Park Assist – which helps drivers find an adequate parking space and guides them in to it – are among the option highlights.
