Vauxhall Zafira is an eco-friendly MPV

Motorists looking for an environmentally-friendly seven-seater vehicle may wish to look into the Vauxhall Zafira, as the MPV is to use a new diesel engine.

The latest addition to the Zafira line-up is a 1.7-litre diesel engine, which generates combined emissions of 139g/km, making it one of the greenest vehicles in the MPV market.

Furthermore, the vehicle has the suitable credentials to become the first ecoFLEX model, offering motorists financial savings as well as eco-friendliness.

The Zafira’s low emissions put it in the Band C bracket in terms of Vehicle Excise Duty, while offering a solid fuel consumption of 53.3 miles to the gallon.

This means that a motorist should be able to travel 680 miles on a full tank before needing to pay a visit to a petrol station.

Other features of the vehicle are that it can be bought with any one of five trim levels, while passenger safety is boosted through the inclusion of six full-size airbags and an anti-locking braking system.

A review of the Vauxhall Zafira by What Car? highlighted that every engine in the range is good and the vehicle is "fun to drive".
