Which used Vauxhall Zafira MPV should I buy?
With the diesel engines liable to particulate filter problems at best, it makes sense to look at a cheaper petrol Vauxhall Zafira, and of those, the most cost-effective to run is the 1.6. Note, though, that early cars make do with just 105bhp and thus feel sluggish when fully loaded, so it’s better to go for a the later VVT version of the engine from 2009, with a perkier 113bhp.
The Zafira was offered in a staggering number of trims and special editions throughout its life, from sparsely equipped Expression to the racy VXR or top-of-the-range Elite with its leather seats, climate control and MP3 player connectivity.
However, it’s the mid-range Design that we’d recommend. Not only does it include equipment such as air-conditioning, alloy wheels, electric windows and a CD player, but it’s also in plentiful supply
