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 25 - 54 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 insure, easy on petrol and long (12-18,000 mile) service intervals. Depreciation shouldn’t be too bad now – most have settled around the £3-5000 mark.

Basically sound, but some cars are now six years old and may be running into some problems. Extended service interval might invite neglect on older cars.
