What used Renault VEL Satis hatchback will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Renault VEL Satis hatchback?

The Vel Satis is extremely cheap to buy. So few were sold new in the UK - just 1400 in three years - that there's little reliable information for dealers to base a valuation on. They'll just want to shift them, and that means bargains for used buyers. Get a decent price for a good example, and it should be a lot of car for the money.

Fuel economy goes from the poor (24.6mpg for the 3.5 V6 petrol) to the very acceptable (our favourite, the 2.2 diesel, returns 39.8mpg).
