The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer is a seven-seat people carrier that competes with the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso, Volkswagen Touran and the Ford S-Max. Although there is some price crossover, the Zafira Tourer isn’t quite as cavernous as the likes of the Seat Alhambra and Ford Galaxy.
There are three engines to choose from, a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine, a 1.6-litre diesel and, at the top of the range, a 2.0-litre diesel. A manual gearbox is standard, but you can have an automatic with the 1.6 and 2.0-litre engines.
A facelift in 2016 introduced some new front-end styling that echoes that of the Astra. Adaptive LED headlights and LED taillights are now optional, as well. Inside, you get a restyled dashboard with a new, relocated infotainment system complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Sat-nav is an optional extra on most trims.
