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 42 - 48 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.

Cheap to buy, strong re-sale values (most have lost their big chunk of money), cheap insurance and reliable. Service intervals are relatively short at 9000 miles, but that reflects the expected usage (lots of short trips need more frequent oil changes).

Generally reliable if serviced properly. History is essential and watch out for tired, ex-driving school cars.
