Opel Zafira Project Prospects

January 29, 2013 at 9:26 am

New Opel Zafira and the successor of Peugeot 3008 will be created by the joint effort of the greatest automakers GM, Peugeot and Citroen. Even though the PSA Peugeot-Citroen will not take under its wing the Opel brand, but it does not mean that the French duo will not help the German “daughter” of their new partner GM. During a meeting with the press in Brussels head of GM Europe Girsky Steve and Chairman of PSA Philippe Varin stated that the French will give a hand to Americans in creating a platform for the “C-class minivan for Opel / Vauxhall». That is, the new Opel Zafira.

In turn, Peugeot aims to build a “crossover C-class”, which, obviously, will be built on the same platform as the Zafira and will serve as the successor for the model 3008. GM will take on the task of developing the new Meriva, which will also be built on the French platform. In addition, the Americans built for Peugeot-Citroen the new MPV B-Class.

However, this is not going to be the end of the cooperation between partners. At GM, Peugeot and Citroen are planning to work on a new family of environmentally-friendly B-Class, as well as on the new 3-cylinder petrol units.
