Car reviews - Holden - Zafira - 5-dr people-mover
30 Aug 2001
A FIVE-SPEED manual and optional four-speed automatic transmission is available on Zafira. The manual has a shift mechanism that is decoupled from the drivetrain and aims to provide a more precise shift action and reduce noise and vibration. It also features a lightweight, maintenance-free, hydraulically operated clutch system with integrated vibration dampers. The automatic transmission's torque converter has been redesigned for the Australian market to give it a slightly higher stall speed. This is designed to make better use of the available engine torque and improve launch characteristics. The auto has three driving modes: Economy, Sport and Winter.
