    "Very small seating space."

    27-May-2014

    We had a Zafira Tourer as a hire car for a weekend and the main thing I noticed were how little seating space there is.

    On the second row of seats, the middle seat is comparably narrower than the other seats in that row. I'm not convinced that you could get three child seats in this row. Also there aren't Isofix points on the middle seat.

    I sat in the third row of seats and my head was touching the roof and I'm under 5ft 4". Clearly not the car if you need a true seven seater.

    "Warning to parents or child minders"

    WARNING

    We were looking at buying a new Vauxhall Zafira Tourer. Sales guy said it would be great for us to put 3 seats across second row. Reading the review on Mumsnet it said can fit 3 child seats across second row. I then read a Top Gear review by someone who thankfully read the Owners Manual before buying.

    On page 58 (http://www.vauxhall.co.uk/content/dam/Vauxhall/Europe/united_kingdom/nscwebsite/uk/Home/pdf/Owners_Services/owners_manuals/VX%20Zafira-C%20Tourer%20OM_KTA-2722-5_MY14.5%20(Jan%202014).pdf) it shows that the middle seat of the second row should not be used with any type of child seat. It also shows that the front seat can only be used with baby car seat, not suitable for any of the other groups of child seat even with airbag turned off.

    A real eye opener as I have seen parents and child minders with these cars using both of those positions. Apparently a safety hazard and also if using those with children and a crash happened the manual means the insurance company could say they were negligent in not following the Owner Manual.

    So this is not as suitable as other MPVs.

    Easy to drive and spacious,We can fit all 4 grandchildren and their belongings in easily and still have room for shopping or suitcases.Its also great for towing our caravan. It may not be the most trendy and up to date car but its great value and any minor repairs or servicing is reasonably priced.
