This is the case of Opel owned by the PSA group, whose fourth generation Zafira is not replaced by a compact minivan like its elders, but by the Combi version of the next Vivaro utility.

The German even urges the operation to the utmost, since he takes the form of the headlights of the Citroën and the underside of the shield of the Peugeot.

It also becomes a luxury shuttle with the lounge finish that includes four leather rear seats, heated front seats and a removable table.
Zafira Life also benefits from the equipment of these French cousins, especially with regard to driving aids. These include the front parking camera and the radar, the pedestrian detection system with emergency brake, the active cruise control, the lane keeping system, the drowsiness alarm or the color head-up display. His solution with every floor! Opel will offer the advanced traction system IntelliGrip and 4×4 version (provided by Dangel).
