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 33 - 39 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.

Holds its value quite well, and insurance, parts and servicing are all reasonable. Fuel economy is particularly impressive even on the most powerful model.

TF scores reasonably on the eco front. With an average of 182 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are quite low for a sports convertible. 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. The range is not particularly economical, averaging 36 mpg.

The MGF suffered plenty of reliability problems, not least a tendency to blow head gaskets. We see no reason to expect the TF to fair much better so close proximity to a dealer would be an advantage.
