What used Nissan Primera hatchback will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Nissan Primera hatchback?

You'll be able to snap up a Primera for surprisingly little dosh.

The diesel engines are the best for fuel economy, and you can reckon on getting more than 45mpg. However, diesel models cost a fair bit more, so you'll have to rack up a fair few miles before the better economy claws back the higher asking price.

Over lower mileages, the 1.8 petrol makes most sense. It's cheapest to buy, but still good for mid-30s to the gallon. The 2.0 will return about 5mpg fewer.

Servicing isn't that cheap. The Ford Mondeo, Mazda 6, Peugeot 407, Toyota Avensis and Vauxhall Vectra are all cheaper to service.
