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 43 - 55 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.

Thanks to low prices and a frugal engine, the Kelisa is cheap to run. However, you may have to travel to get it serviced as there are few dealers around. Insurance is group 3 and although depreciation looks heavy as percentages, it’s so cheap that even 50% depreciation is around £2500 – no worse than any other car.

The Kelisa is eco-friendly with CO2 emissions of 121g/km of CO2, but if this figure was below 120g/km, it would be considerably cheaper to tax. Most other small 1.0-litre cars emit less. Economy is good though with an average of 55mpg.

Some of materials inside look cheap, but the Kelisa doesn’t feel too flimsy. The platform comes from the Daihatsu Cuore (Daihatsu own a large stake in Perodua), which has a reputation for solid build quality. The warranty from new was only two years or 24,000 miles where most firms offer at least three years and 36,000 miles.
