Low insurance groups. Reasonable fuel consumption - nearly 50mpg overall for the 2.0 Di, and 30-35mpg for petrol models. Doesn't depreciate too fast (seven-seat models hold their value best).
Premacy is quite a polluting model. With an average of 204 g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are a touch high for a people carrier. The range is not very frugal, averaging 33 mpg.
Owners of Premacys have reported nothing more serious than the occasional stone chip to parkers.co.uk. Mechanicals are sound and, although the interior looks dour, it seems to stand up to rigorous family use.

How much is it to insure?
Vehicle excise duty (VED) varies according to the CO2 emissions and the fuel type of the vehicle. For cars registered before 01 March 2001 it is based on engine size. For cars registered on or after 01 March 2001 the VED or road tax is based on the car's CO2 emissions.
