The laws of physics used to be fairly strictly followed by car manufacturers until the wide acceptance of the people carrier as a damn good idea. Initially resembling vans with seats, the VW Sharan/Ford Galaxy/Seat Alhambra changed all that by making good, large cars with versatile seating arrangements and lots of equipment. However, the laws of physics dictated that these had to be large on the outside to be large on the inside - adding to size, cost and fuel consumption. Right then, said Vauxhall, we'll ignore that scientific rubbish and create a car that is smaller than a full size people carrier on the outside but just as big on the inside. For a ...

We were already converts to MPV`s when we chose the zafira for our company car....but to save us some pennies we decided to size down a bit from the Seat Alhambra we previously had. We expected to come down in quality and performance too....not so at all we found!! The Zafira is a much more pleasant car to drive than the bigger mpv....much more nippy and easier to handle. It is economical and has plenty of room for us ,three kids and luggage...although we did invest in a roof box for our annual trip to Cornwall....where else to put the surfboards??? The thing we like about it most is the ease of rearranging the seat configuration onside...no more lugging ... Read the complete review

This is my second Vauxhall Zafira and overall it is good value for money and a reliable and versatile family car. The interior trim is a little 'dated' and the wide swathe of plastic dashboard could be improved, but hey... it is horses for courses, depends what you want out of your car. I wanted a seven seater, reliable and (reasonably cheap) vehicle and this compares well with similar MPV's such as the Ford Galaxy or Mitubishi People carrier. Fuel economy is probably average for a car of this size. Reliability on this and my previous Vauxhall Zafira is good, I have only ever had puncture breakdowns (my fault?). The bodywork does seem to scratch easily, but I do ... Read the complete review

We have had our Zafira Comfort since Autumn 99. We love it in every way, and as the other reviewers state, you cannot beat the seating system in this vehicle. However, we do have one beef. The visibility out the front looking left or right is terrible. There are two great "tusk like" supports on either side of the windscreen (the technical name for these I do not know) which are in the way when looking to the left or right. I constantly find myself craning into various positions to see around them, and twice I've had near accidents with cars blocked from my view. I have to be very careful and hope that I never have an instance where time is too short. Read the complete review
