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 28 - 28 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.

It was expensive when new, but Ford servicing costs are affordable. Insurance, fuel and tyres will bring bigger bills.

Build quality looks good and reliability is above average, with only some minor problems reported.
