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 31 - 46 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.

Engines are reasonably economical, insurance costs are sensible, as are spares prices and servicing costs. Service intervals were initially short (6000 miles), but extended to 9000 in 1993. All diesels need servicing every 6000 miles. Most models can be picked up cheaply and have done most of their depreciating.

Generally good, apart from some niggling faults. Some cars are now 11 years old. Service history is essential on diesels, desirable on petrol engines.
