Holden's German stablemate Opel has revealed its all-new Zafira people-mover today, following its unveiling in concept form at Geneva earlier this year.

Opel is scheduled to hit the Australian market next year, and although the brand has so far confirmed launches for the Insignia and Astra only, a local debut for the new Zafira would help fill-out Australian showrooms.

Australia's people-mover market is not a fast-moving segment, but with the Hyundai iMax and Kia Carnival leading the pack, a well-appointed and priced Zafira could be just the ticket for Opel.

The new Zafira will be sold in Europe alongside its predecessor, and a similar formula could be pursued in Australia, the older model priced more in-line with the Kia Carnival.

An Australian debut for the new Zafira would also be the model's first local appearance since the ill-fated first-generation Holden Zafira in the early 2000s.

For Europe, the Zafira will feature Opel's 2.0 litre CDTi turbodiesel engine in 82kW, 97kW and 123kW tunes.

A 103kW 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol engine will also figure among the Zafira's powertrain options. The same engine currently powers the Holden Cruze Series II SRi and SRi-V models.

The new Zafira offers 710 litres of storage space with all five seats up, or 1860 litres with the rear seats folded flat.

A new version of Opel's 'Flex7' seating system is also featured, allowing three independent middle-row seats to be moved individually.
