Vauxhall Zafira rivals

This Astra-based seven-seater was Vauxhall’s surprise package upon its launch in 1999. Its innovative ‘Flex 7’ seat-folding technology was a forerunner for many of today’s flexible people carriers, putting it ahead of its peers in terms of use of space, while its compact size means it’s a good drive, too. Unfortunately, the ride is ponderous and the rear seats are for small children only, but Zafira is a great choice for the family buyer in need of practical versatility and a bit of fun.
