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 32 - 44 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.

With seven seats and generous standard equipment levels, the Journey is good value for money. Servicing costs should be reasonable (and cheaper than Chrysler and Jeep) while group 10 and 11 insurance is around the same as similar-sized alternatives.

The diesel engine is by far the most popular choice and it's easily the most efficient, emitting 170g/km of CO2 and returning 44mpg. This was tweaked in 2010 with emissions lowered by 5g/km of CO2 for the manual version and a 10g/km improvement with the auto.

Both versions of the Journey make use of well-tried components that have a good record of reliability, with few problems reported.
