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 26 - 32 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.

Under the skin the PT Cruiser Cabriolet is the same as a five-door hatchback, so parts and servicing costs are similar. However, insurance jumps from group 12/13 to 15, which makes it more expensive.

With just one 2.4-litre petrol available it is little surprise that the PT Cruiser Cabriolet is a polluting model. It emits 223g/km of CO2 and averages just 30mpg.

There have been very few problems so far (the car has been on sale since 2000). The only concern has been a few niggles with the gearbox.
