This Astra-based seven-seater was Vauxhall’s surprise package upon its launch in 1999. Its innovative ‘Flex 7’ seat-folding technology was a forerunner for many of today’s flexible people carriers, putting it ahead of its peers in terms of use of space, while its compact size means it’s a good drive, too.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

This Astra-based seven-seater was Vauxhall’s surprise package upon its launch in 1999. Its innovative ‘Flex 7’ seat-folding technology was a forerunner for many of today’s flexible people carriers, putting it ahead of its peers in terms of use of space, while its compact size means it’s a good drive, too. Unfortunately, the ride is ponderous and the rear seats are for small children only, but Zafira is a great choice for the family buyer in need of practical versatility and a bit of fun.

What owners say...

 The folding rear seats are great and when folded up you can easily fit a full size washing machine in it.

 The ability to switch it from a large estate vehicle to a 7 seater vehicle if you need extra seats.

 The sliding back seat is very quick to move for when you want a big boot.
