What used Honda Stream estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Honda Stream estate?

Like most Hondas, the Stream holds its value well, so it's not going to be the cheapest MPV on the used car forecourt. Still, running costs are reasonable.

For starters, cars powered by the 1.7-litre engine fall into insurance group 9 and the 2.0-litre model sits in group 12. While compact MPVs such as the Vauxhall Zafira come in slightly lower, you'll pay similar premiums for most large seven-seaters.

It's a similar story when it comes to fuel economy, with the 1.7 averaging 36.7mpg and the 2.0 managing 32.8mpg, figures that are acceptable, though not exceptional.

Servicing bills are also likely to be competitive, and the average hourly rates that Honda dealers charge for repairs undercut many key rivals including Ford and Toyota. Independent Honda specialists, on the other hand, charge more than the class average.
