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 37 - 42 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.

Insurance groups are low (except for the Blue), depreciation average and of course, you don't need to worry about servicing, breakdown cover or a warranty for three years. Fuel economy isn't as good as rivals.

Kalos is an environmentally friendly choice for green buyers. With an average of 168 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are quite low for a super mini hatchback. It's worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.2-litre petrol, which is one of the greenest models in the range.

The range is also fairly economical, averaging 40 mpg.

Korean cars tend to be durable and Kalos doesn't appear to be any different. But the interior may not stand up to heavy punishment.
