The Top Gear car review:Vauxhall Zafira Tourer

Overall verdict
The Zafira Tourer is an able machine that’s very classy inside and out, but it’s not cheap. Good job the old one’s still around.


Luxurious update of Vauxhall’s popular MPV


Prices have risen to match its newfound luxury


What is it?

The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer arrives to complement the current Zafira range rather than replace it. Like the old one, it is a compact MPV with three rows of cleverly-folding seats, but instead of aiming for the mass-selling mainstream, Vauxhall is going slightly upmarket with this one. That’s why the old one remains on sale: it’s a Zafira for those who find this new quasi-premium one too expensive.

Mind you, there’s no doubting what the extra brings, for this Zafira Tourer is possibly the best-looking MPV out there, not to mention the most luxurious and upmarket Zafira there has ever been.
