What used Chevrolet Lacetti estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Chevrolet Lacetti estate?

One of the Lacetti's strongest points is value for money, which is bolstered by a generous three-year servicing, warranty and recovery package from new.

Insurance won't be a big worry, even if the Lacetti ranks a group or two higher than Ford's Focus. You'll fare respectably at the pumps, too; the 1.6 and 1.8 return 36.2 and 38.1mpg respectively.

As an example, a typical 1.6 SX is slightly cheaper per mile to run than a more expensive Focus 1.6 LX or similarly priced Kia Cerato LX, but servicing costs – when you do finally have to pay them – can be around 30% more expensive than the Ford's. They're still cheaper than the Kia's, however.
