Summary:

A reasonably priced mini MPV

Faults:

So far so good, a great car to drive. Had initial problems with the LH rear power window, but the dealer got it fixed under warranty.

General Comments:

Fuel consumption is a little on the high side at 10 to 11 litres per 100 km when the majority of the travel is city driving.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am curious why you changed from a Renault Scenic to an Opel Zafira? (We are trying to decide between them; Scenic wins on airbags, Zafira on potential passenger numbers)

The Zafira offer 4 airbags for the 1.8 auto version, and this car wins my heart for its good road manners and handling.

I just bought the modified version of the Zafira and am totally at awe with the car. This is the 2.2l petrol with automatic transmission.

Side air bags on the front driver and passenger seats, intelligent transmission and powered everything. Smooth ride and quiet road and wind noise.

What do you mean with this "modified version"?
