Flex 7 is one of the Vauxhall Zafira’s best features. This offers a great deal of flexibility. Fleet companies and family drivers look out for the element of safety. The car received the maximum five star rating by Euro NCAP for it’s superb safety technology.

Vauxhall Mokka

The Vauxhall Mokka has helped the company improve on their reputation. At first the vehicle was slightly strangely received due to it’s odd shape but it has slowly become quite a popular vehicle in the UK market. Coming with a 1.7 litre engine the vehicle is offered in two or four wheel drive.
