Build quality excellent
Pleasure to drive
Huge amount of room
Seating arrangements make it very versatile
This is the first Zafira we have had. We chose the Vauxhall Zafira 1.8 Club because we wanted the option of the extra seats and because the rear passengers have loads of legroom. My wife also wanted a high seating position.
The car has not only met our expectations in these areas but has also proved to be an extremely good car to drive. I have never driven a more comfortable car on a long journey, there is loads of space inside, the visibility is great, you feel safe, the car is very comfortable and well equipped, the 1.8 engine is powerful enough even at a full load etc..
We test-drove a 1.6 but thought it probably would not have sufficient power so we went for the 1.8. The diesel did not have good reviews so that's why we chose the petrol engine. We get about 40 mpg on long journeys and about 25mpg around town.
As far as we are concerned the performance is excellent but if you want something dead fast get something else.
So far (18 months) we have only done 9000 miles and have had no problems (touch wood).
Considering that it only cost £12500 we think it is a bargain. Our friends and family have been very impressed by it also.
