While the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer has been around for a while, the 170PS (168bhp) diesel is a recent addition to the engine line-up. On paper, it combines the pulling power needed to tow a family caravan with very good fuel economy and low emissions. We’re testing the seven-seat MPV in SE spec, which has a healthy list of standard equipment included in the £25,675 price.

We’re hoping the Zafira Tourer will tow well and as a seven-seat people carrier it should also be very practical, with a flexible cabin able to cope with lots of people, loads of luggage, or a combination of the two. Read on to find out what tow car ability the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer has.
