Ownership cost

What used Hyundai Coupe coupe will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Hyundai Coupe coupe?

This is a good budget car that's reliable and cheap to fix. Hyundai keeps its labour rates down, so it's unlikely that previous owners will skimp on the servicing to save money, and examples with a good service history should be easy to dig out. These cars are not particularly sophisticated, so don't expect headaches when things do go wrong.

Early models are inexpensive although the later special edition models will set you back a lot more. Examples with air-con and leather seats will be sought after.

Insurance is relatively cheap. The 1.6 is in group 9 and the 154bhp 2.0-litre model is in group 14. Even if you opt for the 137bhp version, you only have to go up two insurance groups from the 1.6 at 11.

Fuel economy's not bad, either. The 1.6 manages about 37mpg if you're careful, and the the 2.0-litre car can return around 32mpg.
