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 - 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.

Reasonable fuel economy (very good fuel economy on diesels); good value servicing at independents; has done most of its depreciating - residual values are gently lowering.

Few problems generally, but beware any cars with patchy history. Don't be scared of a high-miler with a good service history, it will run to very high mileages if well looked after.
