General Motors' German branch, Opel, presents the second generation of its best-selling Zafira minivan at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. With sales of around 200,000 units annually, the Zafira is GM's most important Geneva introduction. Opel has designed the Zafira to achieve an unprecedented level of versatility. The Flex7 system allows the car to transform from a seven- to a two-seater--or any configuration in between. Other features include steering-adaptive xenon headlamps, tire pressure monitors, and as many as thirty separate storage compartments. The panoramic skylights with power-operated shades gracing the headliner offer passengers a pleasant atmosphere. Performance is not so pleasant. The German version is available with five eco-friendly engines--three gasoline and two diesel--but the top-of-the-line unit only makes 200 horsepower. If GM decides to bring the Zafira to North America as a Saturn, we would hope for more power.
