Vauxhall has unveiled today a new top-of-the-range luxury variant of the Zafira to further strengthen its position as the leader in its market segment. Loaded with standard equipment and offering great value for money with on-the-road prices starting at only £18,950, the new Elite is at Vauxhall retailers now.

As well as the innovative Flex7 seating arrangement with which the Zafira broke the mould in the MPV market, the Elite comes with full leather trim, electronic climate control, cruise control, CD30 stereo with MP3 socket, alloy wheels, a multifunction trip computer and a sight and light pack, which incorporates automatic lighting control, rain-sensitive windscreen wipers and an electro-chromatic self-dipping interior mirror.

Engine choices include 1.8i 16v, 2.2 16v Direct and 2.0i 16v Turbo petrol engines, or a choice of 120PS or 150PS 1.9-litre CDTi diesels. Vauxhall’s clutchless Easytronic gearbox is available on 1.8-litre models, with a conventional automatic offered on all other variants except the 2.0 Turbo.

As well as introducing the new flagship, Vauxhall has reduced the price of the entry-level Zafira Expression, making it the least expensive seven-seat monocab on the market, even undercutting rivals from the Far East.

Available with Vauxhall’s sophisticated 1.6-litre Twinport engine, the award-winning MPV costs just £12,995 on-the-road yet includes such equipment as a stereo-radio CD player, electric windows and mirrors, multiple airbags, a 12v auxiliary power socket, a height adjustable driver’s seat and remote control central deadlocking.

This one is good. I like its sophisticated image. The engine is not very
impressive. However, I am satisfied with its power. They should pictures of its interior.

The engine performance is I think suited only for this kind of car. The other commentators are right that this Vauxhall Zafira had its own sophisticated image.

I must agree with them, that this kind of car is really reliable and practical to use. Moreover, even though it only have a simple platform it still looks very appealing and awesome. Good thing as well that it has an impressive speed performance.

Zafira is still a good looking car for me though the style and the platform of it, is seems so ordinary. I just hope that TopSpeed also have some pictures of interior features of this car.

What I really love about this Zafira is that it is so practical to use in our everyday transportation and so reliable to see and drive on the road. I love this for having a simple design.

I must agreed with Kotseng Bullock this kind of car is really reliable and practical to use. Zafira had a simple platform design but it is very appealing and quite impressive.

Zafira is really practical and reliable for a family use and road trip. I love the standard equipment that Zafira had. I must agreed with LiveLongCoolCar that this car had its own sophisticated image.

This kind of looks is great for me. The innovative Flex7 seating arrangement is quite impressive. Zafira still had its own sophisticated image. The starting price for this one is cool.

it seems that downward kink on rear side windows aft of the B- ar is set to become a future car styling cue. It debuted on the Hyundai Genesis Coupe Concept (with its production version tipped to have it as well) and now it appears on this Opel/Vauxhall...

Yes, I wish GM would stop using "Consumer Digest Best Pick" in their marketing. It really devalues their product. Consumer Digest is a complete joke and I would not brag about having anything to do with them.
