The Zafira is a compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) produced by the German manufacturer Open under the Vauxhall marque in the UK. The Zafira concept vehicle debuted at the 1997 Frankfurt Motor Show with production and sales commencing in 1999. The Zafira has produced over two generations, the second of which launched on the UK market in 2005. This second generation model remained in production until 2014, although it was officially replaced by the larger SUV-shaped Zafira Tourer in 2011. A minor facelift in 2008 saw a few styling and mechanical improvements, and though no longer in production the Zafira still offers great practicality for a large family, competing with older versions of the Mazda 5, Renault Scenic and Kia Carens.
The concise range of engines available in the second generation Zafira comprises two petrol units and one diesel. The entry-level engine is the 105bhp 1.6-litre petrol, followed by the 140bhp 1.8-litre. The latter gives a brisker performance, capable of the 0-62mph sprint in 11.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 122mph. The diesel option is a 1.7-litre CDTi unit, available in power outputs of 108bhp or 123bhp, the more powerful of which can reach 0-62mph in 12.3 seconds. The diesel engine is the best in terms of fuel economy, returning 55.0mpg and CO2 emissions of 134g/km.
The three trim levels on offer in the Zafira are Exclusiv, Excite and Design. The base level Exclusiv trim models are equipped with front electric windows, tinted glass, steering-wheel mounted controls and air-conditioning as standard. One of the strongest appeals of the Zafira is its family-friendly practicality, and it exhibits a hugely versatile interior. The Zafira can comfortably accommodate seven passengers, or be completely transformed into a 1,820-litre capacity transporter.
The Zafira offers a comfortable and pleasant driving experience, and comes packed with practical features to appeal to larger families.
