Although Opel delay the submission of its minivan to competition, no one expected such an innovative spatial concept was from Rüsselsheim. Deserves praise third row seats sink down. In practice this means seven-seater with a mid-size sedan.

These are more seats for “emergency” trips, but when folded into the floor to form a perfectly flat surface for loading luggage. The mechanism is simple and easy to operate. When the seats are up boot has a meager 136 liters volume, but when they come, space accommodates 495 liters.

Motors have been known Zafira Astra. In general, the smallest unit is sufficient. In support him and is cheaper. 1.8 liter is considerably more expensive without giving considerably more thrust. As to the first generation diesels (until 2005), in – better stay away.

That Zafira present in versions of gas or power 200hp or turbo, is a sign that is often criticized for its conservatism Opel engineers can be more daring. Otherwise, the two versions have significant market presence.

The suspension is comfortable settings. Whether empty or loaded, the car rarely allows travelers to be wracked by irregularities. Zafira has a great road behavior should clean set course and allows very high speed turns, even higher than for the comfort of up to six satellites driver. Occupant comfort depends on the availability of air binding, because Zafira heats quickly and strongly.

In terms of security Zafira was offered (in Germany, which means largely and elsewhere) without serial ESP. Supplement stabilization system as an extra. However important four airbags and ABS are standard on board. After 2001 there is now a head airbags to the standard traveling first two rows of seats.

In terms of costs does not change tradition Zafira, Opel cars are relatively inexpensive and no shocking surprises with prices for service or parts.

Diesel engines from the first generation (mid-2002) is known for high oil consumption, so vital and efficient petrol engines in the most general case is the better choice. The situation in the current model is not so – now diesel is preferable.

Pros: + interesting concept of interior space, a very balanced chassis, comfort, strong brakes, economical engines

Cons: – very narrow middle seat in the second row, there is an easy removal of the second row seats

Comments from owners of Opel Zafira

Drive Zafira 2007 with 1.6 motor. Urban consumption – 8 – 9.5 liter, extra 7-8 l / 100 km. By 3000-3500 rpm but I do not go this bike, the coupe / AC if you put just watch what happens / 3500 but after the car runs pretty good for 1.6 of this great body. The ride is good for me, the brakes are great. At 30,000 have changed tie rod ends, now the car is in the workshop for the 60,000 km service and may be changed and the clutch appears as a very bad starting shaking and also slip the clutch. As maneuverability for me this car is pretty bad. I hope I was helpful.

2008 Opel Zafira

Apparently referring Opel Zafira And when you mention 2001.

For her, my observations are as follows:

1. Personal such ECOTEC 115 horse 1.8 petrol.

+ Spending by car – 7 urban and 11 in the city, walk like a car, versatile and compact.

– Hard ride, 7 seats boot is symbolic last two seats for people to 1.65 – I 1.80 and I was super close.

2. Drive and company cars Opel Zafira 2,2 TDI 125 horses – spends much / VW Sharan than 110 horse 1.9 / – 8.5 in the city and more than 6 extra. Go over 1.8 petrol. A pretty business it changed the turbo cars still on 100k km.

My general conclusion that these dimensions – 4.30 m / Astra estate as / is super functional. But if you have the money Toyota Corolla Verso with 7 seats / after 2004 / is a better choice. A major disadvantage of the Opel Zafira – senseless system that ECOTEC expensive maintenance of the engine and makes miserable.
