The Vauxhall Zafira is built like the Vauxhall Astra - which is to say as well as a Volkswagen Golf. The hard-wearing interior and well-made dashboard controls mean that even hard-used examples are worth consideration.
The Vauxhall 1.7 CDTi diesel engine makes the Zafira fast off the line, refined on the motorway, and easy on the wallet. Like Fords, Vauxhalls are cheap to service too. The only downside is that the fierce clutch can be a bit hard on your ankle.
There is a great choice of petrol and diesel cars on the market - the Zafira is probably best as diesel but it's substantially cheaper as a petrol.
You can get a 3 year old 1.6 petrol for £3000 less than the comparative diesel. That is the biggest no-brainer in second hand cars we a re aware of.
Pay £6700 for a 3 year old 1.6 petrol Zafira. Go auto if you do the school run - it won't cost you any more and there is no car better suited to that kind of driving.
Petrol Zafiras lose a massive amount in the first year so buy nearly new. Or wait till 3 years when the vicious depreciation eases a little.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Vauxhall Zafira you would aim to buy a 4 year old and sell it before it is 5 years old.
Diesel Vauxhall Zafira cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Petrol Vauxhall Zafira cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Vauxhall Zafira cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
