The Vauxhall Zafira is a popular car - and is a popular choice when looking for a car with wheelchair access. One of the main reasons is it is very much a car or often called a 'people carrier' and not a van type of vehicle. A wheelchair accessible Vauxhall Zafira typically consists of the floor being lowered (so there is enough head room and the ramp is less steep) and suitable for 3 people plus the wheelchair user, there a few conversions that allow for 4 people so look out for this in the WAV details if you need the extra person.
