Toyota Verso vs Opel Zafira

Toyota Verso

Opel Zafira

On sale from February 2011, the new Toyota Verso-s marks Toyota's re-entry into the B-MPV sphere, a segment the company itself created with the Yaris Toyota Verso in 1999.

The B-MPV segment has almost tripled in size since 2002. Driven by downsizing, this growth incorporates an increasingly diverse cross-section of buyers, many of whom appreciate the dashboard flexibility and loadspace provided by a Multi-purpose Car.

Supporting this growth are families switching over from traditional B-segment hatchbacks and, more significantly, empty nesters and seniors downsizing from C-segment vehicles. For them, a B-MPV is not only a rational buy essential to making the most of leisure time, but must also provide the levels of room, convenience, equipment and class they have experienced in a higher segment car.

The smallest car in the segment, Toyota's new B-MPV is less than 4 metres long. This makes it simple to drive in the urban environment. Conversely, meticulous attention to detail in each parameter of its practical, customizable dashboard layout has maximised spaciousness, convenience and perceived class throughout.
Product a ideal blend of functionality and convenience, the new Opel Zafira Tourer transports the Insignia values to the monocab segment - luxury qualities, high-tech technologies, sculptural and dynamic layout. Opel established the seven-seat compact van segment in 1999. With an extensively re-designed Flex7 seats system, the new Opel Zafira Tourer now sets novel standards in dashboard flexibility and atmosphere.

But the third-generation Opel Zafira's innovations go well beyond this newly designed, customizable seats customization. The Opel Zafira Tourer as a whole demonstrates a large step forward and expresses new ambitions. It is the perfect customizable companion, not only for families. Its elegant layout, roomy lounge atmosphere, updated chassis and new technologies allow relaxed driving with maximum convenience and security. The second generation of the Opel Eye front camera builds the basis for a range of high-tech assistance systems, and Opel is the first manufacturer to provide a compact van with adaptive, radar-based speed control.

The motor range on provide for the new Opel Zafira Tourer will initially consist of highly efficient diesel and gasoline engines with output from 81 Kw/110 hp to 121 Kw/165 hp. Shortly after the start of sales, an especially low-consumption Ecoflex model with a 2. 0CDTI common-rail turbo diesel and traditional Start/stop technology will join the Opel Zafira Tourer family. The Opel Zafira Tourer 2. 0CDTI Ecoflex, boasts one of the values in the compact monocab class with just 119 g/km CO2. And this comes with spirited performance of 96 Kw/130 hp and maximum torque of 300 Newton meters.

Also available is the especially economical natural gas variant of the new Opel Zafira Tourer. The Opel Zafira Tourer 1. 6 CNG turbo Ecoflex (110kw/150hp) will be on the sphere in early 2012.
