CHRONOLOGY

SUCCESSOR Subaru Exiga (for Subaru Traviq, Japan)

The first generation of the Zafira is usually referred to as Zafira A, as is customary for Opel
Opel
models. Developed with the aid of Porsche , the Zafira was first shown in concept form at the 1997 Frankfurt Auto Show , and entered series production in January 1999, with sales beginning in April. The Zafira placed third in the European Car of the Year for 2000, only behind the Fiat Multipla and Toyota Yaris .

The car was based on the same platform as the 1998 Astra G , and shared much in common with that car. The Zafira A body was used in GM/Opel's concept hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle the HYDROGEN3 . Offered with a series of petrol engines and initially a single diesel offering, the "X" engines were replaced by the newer "Z" engine generation in 2000.

These featured variable intake manifolds and were able to meet Euro 3 emissions standards. A facelift was launched in February 2003.

The Opel
Opel
Zafira has seven seats arranged in three rows, the back row of which can be folded into the floor to create more space, individually or together, rather than requiring that the extra seats be physically removed from the vehicle. The system was named Flex 7. In TüV's ranking of the quality of three year old cars, the Zafira was by far the best Opel, only slightly behind the winning Ford Focus .

Introduced at Geneva in February 2001, the turbocharged Zafira OPC went on sale in October 2001. With 192 PS (141 kW), this was the fastest minivan on sale in Europe. Only available with a five speed manual transmission, 0–100 km/h (62 mph) can be reached in 8.2 seconds and the top speed is 220 km/h (137 mph). The popular 2 litre turbodiesels were complemented by a 125 PS (92 kW) 2.2 litre option in January 2002.

The Opel
Opel
Zafira A was replaced by Zafira B in Europe, but was still sold in most other markets until 2012 (albeit that its cousin the Chevrolet Astra was discontinued in 2011), except for Australia and New Zealand , where the model was cancelled altogether. The Zafira was sold in the Philippines from 2001 to 2005, being the last European based Opel
Opel
car to be sold in the Philippines after they stopped selling the Opel
Opel
Astra in 2003. Production ended on 25 May 2005, in Bochum
Bochum
.

The Zafira was sold in Japan from August 2001 through to 2004 as the SUBARU TRAVIQ alongside the standard Opel
Opel
vehicle, where it was cancelled and replaced later in 2008 by the Subaru Exiga – developed from the Subaru Legacy platform. According to Subaru, the name was a combination of the words "travel" and "quick", however, the word more closely resembles the English word "traffic".

Due to the exterior dimensions exceeding Japanese government regulations for vehicles defined as "compact", Japanese buyers were liable for additional taxes. The Traviq was originally only available with the bigger 2.2 litre engine, although a 1.8 L, lower priced alternative was added in July 2003. The engines used were not Subaru supplied boxer engines, but were conventional in line units that were uncharacteristic to market-recognised Subaru products, and all wheel drive technology was also not available.

The sale of the Zafira as a Subaru created a conflict with previously established Yanase Co., Ltd. retail dealerships, in that Yanase was already selling Opel
Opel
products, like the Zafira. When production of the Traviq ended, Yanase continued to import Opel
Opel
products into Japan until 2006.

In June 1999, soon after the release of the Zafira, Griff Rhys Jones starred in adverts for the Vauxhall Zafira, in which he played a professor who was fascinated about the car. He was dismissed by Vauxhall in April 2001, after an embarrassing advert for the Vauxhall VX220 .

KNOWN ISSUES

In December 2015, safety officials in the United Kingdom asked Vauxhall to initiate a full safety recall of the model Zafira B, due to a worrying level of car fires apparently or alleged to have been caused by 'Improper Repairs'. The fires continued, even those recalled, and a second full safety recall was announced in May 2016, with all owners advised not to use the fan in speeds regulated by the "resistor pack" which contained a solder based unreliable safety critical thermal fuse, until the second recall, starting August 2016, had been carried out.
