  • Interior look and feel
  • Technology and connectivity
  • Family friendliness
  • Value for money


The Opel Zafira Life Edition eight-seater is a hardy MPV that is made to haul people and cargo, and nothing more.

The outside is stylish from most angles and although the inside can’t particularly be called luxurious, it certainly has its charms with its durable materials, spaciousness, and agreeable seating.

The Edition is priced lower than the majority of its competitors – R749,900 –  and while it might not offer as much as they do, it brings just enough to the table to make it worth your time.

For those who want more luxury but enjoy the Opel packaging, there’s also a seven-seater Elegance trim on offer with a raft of additional creature comforts and leather upholstery.
