What used Hyundai Matrix MPV will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Hyundai Matrix MPV?

The Matrix suffered from steep depreciation from new, however, this plays into the hands of used buyers.

When it comes to fuel efficiency, the original engines aren't great. The 1.5-litre diesel averages 49.6mpg and has emissions of 150g/km, the 1.6-litre petrol does 35.4mpg and 191g/km, with the 1.8-litre at 31.4mpg and 198g/km. The revised engines were better, with the new 1.5-litre diesel averaging 52.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 142g/km, and the 1.6-litre petrol managing 38.7mpg and emitting 174g/km.

The 1.8 is the most expensive to insure and sits in group 21, with the other engines in groups 17-19.

Hyundai dealers charge lower labour rates than many competitors, so servicing at a franchised garage won't mean expensive invoices. There's more good news in that replacement parts are not pricey, so a Matrix should prove easy on the wallet.
