After a week where our car failed its MOT spectacularly with three pages of failure notes, and a good four digits before the decimal point in the repair bill we headed off to our local used car place and decided to buy a Zafira. Should pick it up early next week.

Semed like a good idea at the time, however then I got back and Google threw up pages of people struggling to find seats to fit it.

Please tell me our current Britax first class plus will - think hubby will melt down if we have more expense this month!

I had a '53 Zafira and had no problems with our Britax First Class or our First Class Plus, they both fit fine.

According to Britax website: 'Due to a technical issue, we’re not able to include our FIRST CLASS plus car seat in the Fit-FinderTM results. Please contact our Customer Service on 01264 386034 or at for Fit-FinderTM queries concerning FIRST CLASS plus.'

Give them a call and ask.

Sorry, I should add that was in the middle row of seats- I never tried them in the back row.

Thanks - and yes it would be in the middle row (we're not actually planning on using the back row of seats much at all - bought it for the boot space with a side order of "nice to have the option" mainly)

I'd be interested to hear what you found out about this seat in the zafira as looking to get one for ours.

I have one in my Zafira (56 plate) no problem with fit. I'm about to switch to an ERF now

I have a 57 plate zafira and couldn't get the first class in without bad buckle crunch - ended up having to buy a britax duo fix instead as none of the belted seats would fit properly,

The First Class has an alternative belt routing for long buckle stalks. SO, there are two ways to install it forward facing
