The wheelbase is now 2760mm (+57 mm), while the tracks are 1584mm at the front (+96 mm) and 1588mm in the rear (+78 mm). The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer takes its front axle from the European Car of the Year-winning Insignia, the which means an isolated sub-frame and MacPherson struts.

A horizontal bar carrying the Vauxhall logo extends into the light elements, giving the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer a broad, sporty look at the rear. Visibility has been improved thanks to a completely re-designed front layout, with slim A-pillars, large side windows and re-positioned door mirrors (now fixed directly to the door panel).

Thanks to a clever folding mechanism (available on Certain models), the back of the middle seat now folds forward and rotates, providing occupants in the outer seats with individual armrests. So configured, the outer seats can move fore and AFT through 280mm (+80 mm compared with the current Zafira) and also move by 50 millimeters towards the center of the car, giving passengers improved shoulder and elbow room, and the feeling of limousine-levels of space and comfort.

In five-seat mode, the luggage area can now hold up to 710 liters (up 65 liters versus current Zafira), and up to 1860 liters (+40 litres) when all rear seats are folded.
