What used Ford Fusion estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Ford Fusion estate?

The Fusion was between £500 and £1000 more expensive than the equivalent Fiesta when it was new, so it isn't quite as affordable as its smaller sibling, despite weaker retained values.

There's not much in it, though. If you find a three-year-old Fusion, you'll pay a bit less than half of the car's original price.

The Fusion's fuel economy isn't as good as the Fiesta's, either, by virtue of the larger car's extra weight. Again, though, there's not a drastic amount in it. Both petrol cars will better 40mpg and both diesels are capable of achieving more than 60mpg. The 1.4 TDCi is the best performer with an average of 64.2mpg.

Insurance groupings for the Fusion range between 4 and 6 for the petrol cars, while the diesels will command either a group 4 or 5 premium. Servicing costs are no more expensive than they'll be on a Fiesta - very low, in other words.
