What's the used Vauxhall Zafira like?
It might not be the most dynamic of cars, or boast a revolutionary approach, but the humble Zafira is our favourite used MPV for one simple reason - value.
The Zafira has seven usable seats at a bargain price, and with thousands of examples on the used market, there's no shortage of cars to choose from.
The two third-row seats - which can accommodate adults - fold down flat into the boot floor when they're not needed, while the middle-row seats can be folded and pushed up against the front seats. The only drawback is the shortage of storage space in the cabin.
Up front, the driving position and visibility are good and the dashboard is clear and easy to use. The Zafira gained a five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating, although lower-specified models don't get curtain airbags as standard.
There's limited body roll and strong traction when cornering, while the steering has an accurate and direct feel. The firm ride can prove jiggly, but is generally comfortable.
