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 - 62 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 range from three to six, so they aren't as low as you might expect for a budget car. Thankfully, re-fuelling won’t be too frequent as economy is excellent, with the thrifty 1.5-litre common-rail turbo-diesel returning a remarkable 63mpg. Servicing is cheap and don’t forget there's that cost saving five-year warranty too.

The Getz performs very well on the eco front and the cleanest engine is the newer version of the 1.5-litre CRTD. Both the low and higher output versions emit 118g/km of CO2, making them cheap to tax and are capable of 63mpg.

The Getz is dependable, but some owners have found problems with the rear brakes which can be fixed by dealers. Servicing is cheap and there's an extensive warranty, so it's not a great worry if anything does go wrong.
