The Opel Zafira Tourer combines cutting edge suspension and chassis engineering with the intelligent, fully adaptive FlexRide chassis control system for a unique level of comfort and control.
A major consideration with the Opel Zafira Tourer was that the ride and handling should fit perfectly to the premium feeling. To achieve this Opel engineers have combined the well-proven and sophisticated front suspension from the Opel Insignia with the standard-setting Watt’s linkage rear suspension from the Opel Astra. The result gives the Opel Zafira Tourer outstanding ride and handling qualities.
This is a perfect basis for the Opel FlexRide system, which is still unmatched in this category. A further, less obvious benefit is that the space saved by the Watt’s linkage rear suspension has enabled the FlexFix® bicycle carrier to be installed.
The Opel Zafira Tourer with FlexRide chassis offers three distinct driving modes. Selecting Sport fully optimizes the car for dynamic driving, tautening the suspension and steering response and speeding up the reaction of the accelerator and the automatic transmission, also switching instrument lighting to red. By using the infotainment system menu, the driver can specify exactly which functions go into action when the Sport mode is activated.
The Tour mode is optimal for long-distance cruising, delivering a perceptible increase in comfort. When neither is chosen, the "standard" setting is selected, providing a balanced ride and handling feel.
No matter which is selected, in any case, the chassis system is constantly adapted to fit the various traffic conditions, providing substantially more safety than a conventional chassis.
