Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Opel Zafira in Nigeria
Opel does not market the Opel Zafira in Nigeria; hence the ones found in Nigeria have been imported into the country. A few brand new ones are brought into Nigeria, but majority of the ones available are either fairly used (first class Tokunbo), or maybe two/three years old since date of manufacture (Second class Tokunbo). There are the ones which are in older states than the first class and second class ones, but provided they are in good road useable conditions, then it is fine.
