Vauxhall Zafira SE
The Vauxhall Zafira SE is a mid to higher end version of this popular people carrier that’s excellent for families as it actually wants to perform. Friendly, funky, interestingly designed and decently kitted out, there’s a lot to like about it, not least the fantastic value for money. Indeed you get a good amount of car for your cash, and the overall safety, reliability and security scores are right up there too. It’s a good all rounder that really does perform everyday, and engines span 1.6 to 2.2 litre petrols, as well as 1.7 to 1.9 litre diesels, so you get great fuel economy.
Yes, the Vauxhall Zafira SE sports some interesting designs from the outside, with funky angles and shapes galore on the bodywork. Inside, the cabin is roomy, inviting and nice and bright thanks to the large windows. It’s spacious and well finished, which means family use isn’t a problem; you also get 140 litres of boot space, which increases when you move the seats around.
