  • Vauxhall Zafira Tourer (2012 - 2018)
    Originally sat above standard Zafira B in Vauxhall line-up before eventually replacing it. Has same Flex7 seven-seat system. Spacious interior.
  • Vauxhall Zafira (2005 - 2014)
    Compact yet can house seven people. Rearmost seats fold into floor. More versatile mid-row seating than previous model. Excellent diesel auto.
