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 32 - 43 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.

Servicing isn't particularly cheap, but it needed to be cost effective to run to keep fleet buyers happy and was generally competitive. Fuel economy is impressive for all including the GT model.

Reliability has proven to be exceptionally impressive with the Primera. Make sure servicing is maintained and this should continue to be the case.
