Vauxhall Zafira Leasing
In many ways, this Zafira Tourer offers families pretty much the ideal People Carrying formula. It’s big – but not too big. Quite sporty to drive. Acceptably good looking. And clever enough to re-invent itself around almost any permutation that seven people and their luggage can create.
One car dominates the volume part of the segment for seven-seat MPVs and it’s this one, Vauxhall’s Zafira Tourer. Originally launched in 2012, this model has always been sensibly priced and practically configured but in its earliest form, really needed a more modern driving environment with updated media connectivity. This revised version delivers exactly that.

Why Would You Want One?
Families demand more from People Carriers these days. Much more. So Vauxhall’s improved Zafira Tourer offers it, now smarter and much better connected. Plus as before you get taut handling and clever seven-seat versatility from a shape not too big and not too small. On paper at least, it’s everything a modern MPV should be. Vauxhall Zafira lease deals can be tempting too.
Give Me the Key Details...
People Carriers must be spacious, but that doesn’t mean they have to look boxy. Here’s a case in point. The Zafira Tourer has always been one of the better looking MPVs in its segment and in this revised guise, it still is. British stylist Mark Adams and his team wanted to bring some of the style of the seventh generation Astra to this improved model, hence the changes made at the front end.
The centrepiece of the restyled dash is a beautifully-integrated 7-inch Intellilink infotainment screen which incorporates the usual DAB stereo, Bluetooth ‘phone and informational functions. In the second row, you get three individual comfortable and flexible seats that can separately slide by around 100mm backwards or forwards and recline for greater comfort into three different positions of 16, 20 or 24-degrees. As usual in this segment, third row seating is really only for children. As for luggage space, well inevitably, there’s not that much of it with all seven seats in place – just 152-litres – but if you fold down this third row, the figure rises to 710-litres. Go further and fold down the second row and up to 1,860-litres of space is revealed.
Your Vauxhall Zafira lease quote will be based around the choice you make from an engine line-up that focuses on diesels, either a 1.6-litre 134PS unit or a 170PS 2.0-litre option. Some buyers wanting Vauxhall Zafira finance may also want to look at the 140PS 1.4-litre petrol unit.
The Bottom Line
Provided you’re not troubled by considerations of badge equity and you can balance the efficiency returns against an affordable up-front asking price, there’s remarkably little not to like about this car. Some might find the ride to be a little on the firm side. Others might want a little more in terms of standard electronic safety cleverness. Overall though, this smarter, cleverer Zafira Tourer is a very complete package. If you’re shopping in this segment, it’s simply got to be on your shortlist.
