What used Renault Espace MPV will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Renault Espace MPV?

If you opt for the 3.5 V6, petrol running costs will be high. Sure, it isn't that expensive to buy - in fact, you'll probably pick one up for less than the price of our favourite model, the 2.2 dCi diesel. But it's the second dearest Espace to service (the 3.0 dCi is most expensive) and returns an official average of just over 23mpg.

Generally, the Espace isn't that expensive a proposition, although used prices aren't the cheapest. You'll pay about the same to service it as most of its rivals.

Our favourite model, the 2.2 dCi Expression should give you 36mpg overall. The 1.9 dCi diesel stretches that to 40mpg, while the 3.0 dCi drops it to 30mpg, which is about the same as the turbo and non-turbo 2.0 petrols.
