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 34 - 53 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.

Reasonable mpg figures, and depreciation is low, but insurance is high. Servicing costs are no higher than a standard Rover 25.

ZR scores well on the eco front. With an average of 167 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are quite low for a small family hatchback. However, it's worth noting that the line up has a high number of diesel models, bringing the average down and giving buyers more choices of low-emission versions. Diesels typically produce less CO2 than petrol engines with similar power outputs.

Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 2.0-litre diesel, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is also fairly economical, averaging 43 mpg.

Long-running car with most of the problems sorted, but occasional head gasket problems spoil the show.
