The Vauxhall Zafira is a seven-seater people carrier, which is based on the Astra. When it was launched it was a highly innovative car and many of its features were copied subsequently in other people carriers. For a large family car a used Vauxhall Zafira is a great buy and offers a highly practical solution, in addition to being a fun car to own.
The current Zafira model was launched in 2005. This model boasts sharper styling and an improved build quality as well as being more refined. The refinements include storage boxes in the roof and keyless entry. There is also the additional extra of a panoramic glass roof.
Depending on the generation there is plenty of engine choice. The post 2005 Zafira has four petrol and two diesel engine options. The diesels are 1.9 litres and deliver either 120 bhp or 150 bhp. Petrol engines include; a 1.6 litre, 105 bhp unit, a 1.6, 115bhp unit, a 1.8 litre, 140 bhp unit and a 2 litre, 200 bhp unit.
The Zafira handles reliably and is true to form. It was built for transporting people safely and economically from journey’s start to journey’s end, and not for hurtling round country lanes. It is fine in town and on the motorway. It will get you there in comfort and in one piece and is a great family car.
