Vauxhall has improved the Zafira Tourer to a more upmarket look and feel compared to the two previous functional but basic Zafira MPVs by making it larger and far more exciting within..
The new Zafira Tourer still has the ever present Flex 7 seating which made it so popular but now comes with standard features such as front and rear park assist and cruise control.
The Tourer now looks the part, with styling that rivals the Ford S-Max and a smooth enjoyable drive. The Zafira is not just functional now, it’s a car you can be proud of driving. Because it now rivals the S-Max for size and space it can be seen as a true MPV for 7 adults.
The Zafira Tourer comes with several engine options comparing of one turbocharged 1.4-litre petrol, along with a pair of diesels: the excellent, fuel-sipping 1.6-litre ‘Whisper’ unit, which has proved very popular and a stronger 2.0-litre CDTi, which costs barely more than the 1.6 on equivalent trims.
In terms of gearboxes, the 1.4 petrol and the 2.0 diesel can be had either with the standard six-speed manual transmission, or with a six-speed automatic, which adds cost and has a significant punitive effect in terms of economy/emissions. The 1.6 CDTi can only be had as a six-speed manual, with Vauxhall’s Start & Stop technology fitted to the 1.6 CDTi and the 2.0 CDTi manuals only. All engine and transmission choices are available with all equipment levels.
We stock both Ford S-Max and Vauxhall Zafira Tourer and both have proved popular, the Zafira is smaller when at full capacity however it does come at a significantly lower cost. The savings against new on both are a sight to behold with up to 50% saving against new price if you purchase a 12 month old equivalent.
