There was a time when anyone buying an MPV was forced to ditch any notion of form over function. All that changed with the arrival of more stylish people carriers like the Vauxhall Zafira.
Now the Griffin brand has upped the style stakes still further with last month’s launch of the new Zafira, but there will always be those who crave for more.
Well, not to worry. Vauxhall has created a styling pack to ensure that its latest MPV gets as many second looks for style as it wins points for practicality.
The pack consists of a rear lower skirt, rear roof spoiler, side sills and front lower spoiler. It can be supplied and fitted by Vauxhall retailers in any one of the new Zafira’s body colours for £1305.
A wide range of practical accessories designed to protect your vehicle from daily wear and tear is also available for the new Zafira. These include a selection of floor mats from £19, a rear seat protection cover for £39, and load sill protective film (£26), which is a discreet but effective way of preventing the rear bumper being scratched when loading and unloading the vehicle.
As a family oriented vehicle, the new Zafira can be fitted with such useful accessories as a Dog Guard to ensure safe travelling space for both pets and passengers. There is also an accompanying Divider Grid to create valuable space for luggage without compromising the safety of all the family members on board.
All items can be purchased from any Vauxhall retailer or by shopping online at www.vauxhall.co.uk/accessories
Vauxhall is also launching a dockable DVD player for MPV and estate models that promises to provide the ultimate in in-car entertainment. Easily mounted to the roof lining, the system will keep the kids in the back amused for hours.
Specially designed for in-car use with enhanced brightness and shock proof construction, it can be removed when the journey ends to enable rear seat passengers to continue watching movies or cartoons at home or outdoors.
Suitable for the new Zafira and previous model plus Meriva, it can be fitted in less than an hour at any Vauxhall retailer for £695.Published 25 August 2005
