FIRST AMONG SEQUELS (new2) 28/07/2016

Vauxhall's improved second generation Zafira Tourer diesel is a premium product with a proletarian badge. Jonathan Crouch looks at what's on offer.

Ten Second Review

The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer diesel is a smart choice in the sector for spacious yet still quite compact seven-seat MPVs. This revised version will continue to be mainly preferred in the 2.0 CDTi diesel guise we look at here. Improvements include smarter styling and upgraded infotainment. And it's as practical as ever.

Background

Some products are resolutely and forensically researched into existence, fitting into some sort of ruthlessly logical product masterplan. Others just seem to have sprouted from one corner of a giant organisation and defy conventional wisdom. Think Volkswagen Golf for the first approach and Nissan Juke for the latter. Then there's this improved Vauxhall Zafira Tourer. In execution it feels relentlessly thorough. It's beautifully built and is fiendishly clever. A seven-seater with real class, it's a bit of a head scratcher insofar as it's possibly the slickest car in its class yet wears one of the most blue-collar badges. If customers buy a vehicle based on what it can do, Vauxhall should have no problems shifting some serious numbers. The diesel versions are the best tuned to the demands of the British market and there's no shortage of choice.

Driving Experience

There's now only a single diesel choice for Zafira Tourer buyers, but it's the one that most of them would probably have gone for anyway, a 170PS 2.0 CDTi unit with a choice of either manual or automatic transmission. Acceleration to 62mph takes just over 9s en route to 129mph. This diesel engine is extremely refined, and decent torque means you don't need to mash the throttle hard, especially if you're driving fully laden. The Zafira Tourer has a clever suspension system, using the same strut front mounted on a separate subframe as the Insignia. The rear end doesn't feature a multi-link arrangement, Vauxhall rightly reasoning that this adds bulk and cost where it's not required but features a neat Watts link arrangement. Building on the chassis' dynamic prowess is the option of Vauxhall's FlexRide adaptive damping system. This automatically adapts the car's damping to suit road conditions, cornering speed, vehicle movements and an individual's driving style. In addition, drivers can select from a choice of three settings: Standard, Tour and Sport.

Design and Build

If you think this car looks smart from the outside, you'll be especially impressed with the upgraded interior, in which you'll find essentially a reinvention of every neat MPV idea you can think of packaged together into a 'Flex7' format that really works. The 'Flex7' thing has always been a Zafira trademark but before this Tourer model was launched, it had got to the point where third row seating that folded into the floor behind a central rear bench really didn't seem that clever any more. This upgraded system moved things on, a set-up that doesn't have a central bench, three individual more comfortable and more flexible seats instead provided. These can individually slide by around 100mm backwards or forwards and recline for greater comfort into three different positions of 16, 20 or 24-degrees. Go for a plusher Zafira Tourer with so-called 'Lounge Seating' and you'll find that they can do even more, should your need be restricted to the carriage of two rearward occupants seeking greater Club Class comfort. To create such a layout, you've only to slide each of the two outer seats in a L-shape, backwards then inwards. As you do so, the central seat also folds itself inwards, its bolsters becoming comfortable armrests for the remaining two passengers who suddenly find themselves with limousine-like standards of leg and shoulder room. It's certainly not very limousine-like if you've been confined to a place at the very rear, where the seats do very little other than to fold out from the floor. They'll be fine for reasonably agile uncomplaining adults on short to medium-length journeys but it would be a mistake to think of this car as some sort of 7-seater mini-bus. 710-litres of luggage room is available with the third row folded away and up to 1860-litres if you want to fold down the second row as well and switch to removal van mode.

Market and Model

Pricing starts at just over £21,500 for 2.0 CDTi diesel Zafira models. There are eight trim levels - 'Design', 'Energy', 'SRi', 'SRi Nav','SE', 'Tech Line', 'Elite' and 'Elite Nav'. All get Vauxhall's IntelliLink system and seven-inch central dash inftainment display, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity available. OnStar is standard across the range and the base model comes with digital radio and cruise control, LED daytime running lights, 17" alloy wheels and front and rear parking sensors. The latest model comes with all the well-known virtues of its predecessors, such as the Flex7aseating system and the option of features like ergonomically-certified AGR front seats, the Flex-Fixabicycle carrier and FlexRide adaptive damping. Most will want to pay extra for the optional foldable and space-saving luggage compartment FlexCover which can create a level load floor and protect the backs of the seats from dirt. The Panoramic windscreen, where glasswork extends up above your head, and the vast Panoramic Sunroof are also both tempting options, the latter explaining the regrettable absence of the central-spine interior roof storage system so useful on plusher version of the old MK2 Zafira.

Cost of Ownership

As we said earlier, most Zafira Tourer buyers will want a diesel - and may be surprised to find that the 170PS 2.0-litre unit manages 54.3mpg on the combined cycle and 137g/km of CO2. That'll give you a usefully long range from the 58-litre fuel tank. Helping in this regard is Cleantech Combustion Technology and a stop/start system that cuts the engine when you don't need it, say when you're stuck in urban traffic or waiting at the lights. Oh and the REPS Rack Assist Electric Power Steering system also helps, an electronic set-up that only kicks in when absolutely needed. Opt for a car with one of Vauxhall's sat nav systems and you'll get functionality that not only shows the fastest and shortest routes but also the one on which a driver can expect to use the least amount of fuel, taking into account vehicle specification, road characteristics and driving style.

Summary

Unexpectedly endearing would be my two word summary of the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer. The product is brilliantly resolved and if you want the best seven-seat mid-sized MPV, you may well be looking at it right here. The 170PS diesel engine is also the pick of the engine line up, although the 140PS petrol unit is also well worth your time if you're a low mileage user. With all the practicality you could reasonably expect, sweetly resolved driving characteristics, great economy figures and a broad range of trims and options to choose from, the diesel engined Zafira Tourers are squarely on point. If you can negotiate a discount to bring the pricing down, they're genuinely hard to fault.

TOURER DE FORCE (new2) 01/07/2016

The Zafira Tourer has proved to be the most sophisticated People Carrier that Vauxhall has ever made. Jonathan Crouch checks out the revised version.

Ten Second Review

Families demand more from People Carriers these days. Much more. So Vauxhall's improved Zafira Tourer offers it. Sharp styling, taut handling and very clever seven-seat versatility from a shape not too big and not too small. It's everything a modern MPV should be.

Background

Buying a seven-seater People Carrier used to be a frustrating process. Those in the so-called 'compact' sector - cars like Volkswagen's Touran and Toyota's Verso - weren't usually quite big enough if you regularly intended to use their third seating rows. While those in the 'large' class above - Ford Galaxys, Volkswagen Sharans and so on - felt too big and bus-like. So a decade ago, we started to get seven-seat MPVs that, though still based on compact family hatch platforms, were a little bigger inside. Ford's S-MAX started this trend, followed by Renault's Grand Scenic and then, in 2012, the car we're looking at here, Vauxhall's Zafira Tourer. It's been facelifted in the guise we're checking out in this instance, but more significantly, features the latest connectivity you'll find in some of Vauxhall's most modern designs. That means the OnStar connectivity system, plus the neat Intellilink infotainment set-up. Plus, as before, families get state-of-the-art seating origami, so it's as practical as ever.

Driving Experience

Let me start by saying this. If you haven't driven any of the latest seven-seat MPVs, you're going to be seriously impressed by this one as a driver's tool. Come to think of it, even if you are familiar with a few of them, you'll find much to like about this Vauxhall. It turns into corners with remarkably little body roll, much like a sports estate car rather than any kind of People Carrier. As a result, find yourself running late and, if you're not careful, you'll end up driving in a fashion that'll be most unwelcome to your occupants should you be travelling seven-up. It may lack the ultimate sharpness of response you'd find in a Ford S-MAX, but there's remarkably little in it, especially if you opt for the FlexRide adaptive damping system. Which means that once you've dropped off the kids, this is a car you can actually enjoy on the twisty route home. Engine choice is straightforward because these days, there are only three units on offer. The most affordable option is a 140PS 1.4-litre petrol turbo unit, but Vauxhall expects most buyers to choose one of the diesel options, a 136PS 1.6 CDTi engine or a 170PS 2.0-litre CDTi powerplant. The 2.0-litre unit makes rest to 62mph in 9.1s and 129mph but more importantly offers 400Nm of torque for easy overtaking. A reasonably slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission is fitted as standard across the range, with the option of a six-speed automatic if you want it.

Market and Model

Pricing theoretically starts at under £19,000, but you're looking at needing to find nearly £22,000 for the least expensive version of the diesel model that most will want. There are eight trim levels - 'Design', 'Energy', 'SRi', 'SRi Nav','SE', 'Tech Line', 'Elite' and 'Elite Nav'. All get Vauxhall's IntelliLink system and seven-inch central dash inftainment display, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity available.

The Panoramic windscreen, where glasswork extends up above your head, and the vast Panoramic Sunroof are also both tempting options, the latter explaining the regrettable absence of the central-spine interior roof storage system so useful on plusher version of the old MK2 Zafira.

Cost of Ownership

The relatively few customers who opt for this car with petrol power will find it reasonably efficient - the 140PS 1.4-litre petrol turbo manages 42.2mpg on the combined cycle and puts out 158g/km of CO2. Most though, will want a diesel - and may be surprised to find that the 170PS 2.0-litre unit manages 54.3mpg on the combined cycle and 137g/km of CO2. That'll give you a usefully long range from the 58-litre fuel tank. The 1.6 CDTi manages 68.9mpg on the combined cycle and 109g/km of CO2. Helping in this regard is Cleantech Combustion Technology and a stop/start system that cuts the engine when you don't need it, say when you're stuck in urban traffic or waiting at the lights. Oh and the REPS Rack Assist Electric Power Steering system also helps, an electronic set-up that only kicks in when absolutely needed. Opt for a car with one of Vauxhall's sat nav systems and you'll get functionality that not only shows the fastest and shortest routes but also the one on which a driver can expect to use the least amount of fuel, taking into account vehicle specification, road characteristics and driving style.

Summary

In this improved Zafira Tourer, families have pretty much the ideal People Carrying formula. Big - but not too big. Sporty - but comfortable. Surprisingly good looking. And clever enough to re-invent itself around almost any permutation that seven people and their luggage can create. OK, so the idea of a sporty, good-looking MPV pitched ideally in size between overly compact and overly large MPVs wasn't originally Vauxhall's - credit for that must go to the Ford S-MAX. It seems on this evidence though, that the Griffin brand has perfected the concept, with a more ingenious interior layout, lower pricing and sharper running costs. It's arguably the best-looking MPV you can buy too - though of course that's a subjective call. What's not up for debate is the Zafira Tourer's status as easily the most accomplished People Carrier Vauxhall has ever brought us. Got kids? Take it from us: you'd like one.

PRACTICAL MAGIC (family) 14/10/2016

The improved Vauxhall Zafira Tourer is a mini-MPV that still has the ability to show its opponents the way. June Neary reports.

Will It Suit Me?

On the face of it, the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer isn't the sort of car that would immediately turn my head. I have no real need for seven seats and I prefer something a bit smaller and sassier. After driving it, I'm not so sure. I like cars that do what they promise and the Zafira certainly delivers on all its promises. It's undeniably practical but it never feels as if you're making big sacrifices for that level of utility. If I was to own a Zafira, I would have to squirrel away two or three thousand pounds so that I could have a cheeky used roadster or hot hatch on the side for my driving jollies, but I don't doubt the Vauxhall would clock up the bigger mileages.

Practicalities

Where to start? The Zafira Tourer does practicality like no other car in its class. With seating for seven, the entire third row can be folded flush with the floor of the luggage area, but rather than being a bench, the second row instead comprises three separate seats that can be folded and moved fore and aft through 210mm. Passengers in the second row also benefit from plenty of space. Thanks to a clever folding mechanism (available on certain models), the back of the middle seat can fold forward and rotate, providing occupants in the outer seats with individual armrests. In five-seat mode, the luggage area holds up to 710 litres (up 65 litres), and up to 1860 litres (+40 litres) when all rear seats are folded. A FlexFix integrated bicycle carrier is available, fitting into the rear bumper and pulling out like a drawer to accommodate two bikes, without the need for any special fixing tools. Keep some wet wipes handy though. When I tried it, my bike got a bit grubby with road dirt. The FlexRail is a triple-layer system of containers which slide on rails set between the front seats. Pop bottles, shades, iPods and such like in there. They even feature red mood lighting strips which is a surprisingly extrovert touch.

Behind the Wheel

The model I chose to drive featured the top specification 170PS diesel engine and it was wholly adequate. Nothing more, nothing less. It rode reasonably well, wasn't too loud and wasn't too slow. I suspect that the less powerful 1.4-litre petrol version in the range might require a bit of pedalling, especially if you've got a whole bunch of people and gear on board. The steering is a little numb but the Zafira Tourer corners reasonably well without a load of pitching and rolling. Visibility is good with all of that glass around you, but you'll want parking sensors as this is a sizeable vehicle, measuring 4.65 metres long and nudging it into a multi-storey bay when you've got a bunch of kids launching Happy Meals at each other can be testing.

Value For Money

Prices start at around £19,000 but the diesel version costs from around £22,000 and with a few extras, you'd easily spend at least £25,000. That is quite a sum for what is still a compact MPV. Vauxhall have answered this accusation by providing plenty of kit for your cash. All models get an IntelliLink infotainment system with a seven-inch central dash infotainment display, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity available. OnStar is standard across the range and the base model comes with digital radio and cruise control, LED daytime running lights, 17" alloy wheels and front and rear parking sensors. The latest model comes with all the well-known virtues of its predecessors, such as the Flex7aseating system and the option of features like ergonomically-certified AGR front seats, the Flex-Fixabicycle carrier and FlexRide adaptive damping. Most will want to pay extra for the optional foldable and space-saving luggage compartment FlexCover which can create a level load floor and protect the backs of the seats from dirt. The Panoramic windscreen, where glasswork extends up above your head, and the vast Panoramic Sunroof are also both tempting options, the latter explaining the regrettable absence of the central-spine interior roof storage system so useful on plusher version of the old MK2 Zafira.

Could I Live With One?

The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer is built to a specific brief and achieves its goals in a classy and ruthlessly competent manner. I don't know if it's a car that suits me, but it's nevertheless an easy MPV to live with. I suspect it would be one of those vehicles that you'd use far more than you'd expect as you became slowly seduced by how easy it makes life.

User comment:
The 1.8 Zafira is a delight to drive with flexible driver positions, good all-round visibility and easy access to controls and instrument panel. The interior is comfortable with an extraordinary amount of space, front, back and in the luggage compartment, whatever configuration is being used. The car is also more stylish than the earlier models. My only gripe, and a small one at that, is that it is slightly noisier than most cars I have driven. Overall, it represents excellent value for money.

User comment:
The 2017 Vauxhall Zafira is a very smart looking family vehicle. We chose the 1.4 T Petrol engine as I need to drive an automatic. The car can sprint very quickly, but at the expense of fuel efficiency. We are getting only 27 mpg overall - according to the onboard computer and all the fuel we have had to put in. We expected something nearer 40 mpg having read the Vauxhall own reviews - we have driven over 200 miles since collecting the Zafira and this has included A roads, motorway and city driving - this is very poor and would have put us off choosing the Zafira petrol engine had we realised just how expensive it would be to drive. The automatic diesel was out of our budget range. A second disappointment is the inability of the normal dipped headlamps to light up the road in front. Our previous Fiat 500L was far better. We feel Vauxhall has let us down with not installing stop and start on the automatic gearbox. Also not the sport/economy modes of the manual gearbox. Another obvious fault is the failure to be able to read the automatic gear selection panel as it has been set up for a left hand drive vehicle. Having not tested an automatic this fault was not obvious until the car was driven away new. The indication as to which mode selected is on the passenger side of the gear selector instead of on the driver side. I am finding this most inconvenient and unsafe twisting my head about to see if I am in reverse/or neutral. It seems that Vauxhall. i.e Opel A.G., has not thought this through. We expect a recall on this vehicle to put this right as it is a definite safety issue. We are having real problems understanding just how to get the best out of the central computer display our failure. Overall apart from the above we can say the Zafira 2017 is a good car. Beautiful to drive. Sticks on the road like glue. Good vision for the driver. Plenty of room inside. Good to park with parking sensors both front and rear - something that most manufacturers forget to include. Having seven seats is also a bonus, although we got the Zafira for the ample boot space.
