Reliable fuel consumption data for comparison purposes is not available for this model.

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.
