Vauxhall/Opel decided to modify the car's pedal box area after the brake pedal failed to break-away in the original test as it was designed to do. Euro NCAP allowed a re-test. The structure and performance of the restraint systems in the Zafira was criticised by testers. The results were reasonable but the body shell was judged to be unstable and could pose risks in a more severe accident. The driver and front passenger risked injury from hard areas of the facia. The child restraints performed reasonably but labelling on them and the car was inadequate.
