Car reviews - Holden - Zafira - 5-dr people-mover
30 Aug 2001
ZAFIRA features a good level of active and passive safety features, including dual front airbags, all-wheel disc brakes with ABS brakes and electronic brake-force distribution, traction control and an auto-reverse function on the power windows. Anti-submarining ramps are provided in the first and second rows, head restraints are used throughout and lap-sash seatbelts found on all outboard positions. (Holden is planning to convert the second row lap belt into a three-pointer.) Seatbelt pretensioners and force limiters are used on the front seats only. European NCAP crash test results give the vehicle a three-star (out of five) rating, with testers criticising the performance of the restraint systems and warning that the body shell could pose risks in a severe accident. By comparison, the Mazda Premacy also received three stars and the Renault Scenic four stars.
