Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 30 - 35 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The new price originally included three years/60,000 miles servicing, but in spring 2006 this was replaced by an optional fixed-cost servicing pack, available when ordering a new car. Fuel consumption and insurance costs are only average, and depreciation is quite steep.

The Tacuma performs badly on the eco front – showing its age. The ‘greenest’ model is the 1.6-litre which emits 191g/km of CO2 – incredibly high for en engine of this size and performance. It’s thirsty too – capable of just 35mpg.

No major problems have been reported for Tacuma. The only complaints come from loose or poorly-fitted interior trim – but they are few and far between.
