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 37 - 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.

Good fuel economy from the diesels (more modern offers much better figures than the old 1.9). Depreciation is severe, but servicing, parts and insurance costs are reasonable.

Partner Combi is an environmentally friendly choice for green buyers. With an average of 166 g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are quite low for a people carrier. 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 1.6-litre diesel, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is also fairly economical, averaging 43 mpg.

Combi has the ruggedness of a van but the interior is poorly finished with cheap materials; engines are proven and should be reliable if properly serviced. Users of parkers.co.uk have reported no problems.
