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 - 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.

Good fuel economy – although the old 1.4e eight-valve engine is thirstier than the 1.6e. The last-of-line direct-injection diesels are very economical, cheap insurance, long service intervals.

Essentially reliable, but there have been niggles. Paint quality isn’t always brilliant.
