For The cabin looks and feels classy, and there’s plenty of room in the first two rows. The cleanest diesel has very low running costs and every Vauxhall Zafira Tourer comes well equipped.
Against The rearmost seats aren’t comfortable for adults, while the middle three are heavy and not that easy to flip up or fold down. The ride and handling could also be better, and the diesel versions sound rough.
What Car? says
The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer is a decent MPV, but the best rivals are easier to live with because they’re more practical and refined.

There are 24 Vauxhall Zafira Tourer versions available
Target Price team says:
The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer is sold alongside the standard Zafira, but is a more upmarket offering, with some extra practicality.
There are two petrol engines to choose between, a 138bhp 1.8 litre or a pricier turbocharged 1.4 with the same power but better efficiency. There's only one 2.0-litre diesel, but it comes in 109bhp, 128bhp, 163bhp and twin-turbo 192bhp forms.
The Tourer comes in a wide range of trims, too, with the third rung on the ladder – Tech Line – the best option. It has more kit than the two trims below it, yet strangely, it actually costs less.
We'd avoid the top two trims because they push the price too high, although they do bring more versatile 'Lounge Seating'. This works in much the same way as the seating in lesser models, but the central seat in the second row can be folded upwards to create an armrest. The outer seats then slide backwards and inwards, giving their occupants improved legroom and shoulder room.
