What used Seat Altea estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Seat Altea estate?

The most efficient Altea is the 1.6 TDI Ecomotive, which uses stop-start engine technology to help give an average of 62.8mpg and CO2 emissions of 119g/km. The 1.9-litre diesel isn't far behind, with an average of 52.3mpg and emissions of 146g/km. The 2.0-litre engines average between 46.3mpg- 49.6mpg and emissions from 149g/km to 169g/km

The smaller-capacity petrol models are also fairly frugal. The 1.2 TSI averages 49.6mpg and 132g/km, the 1.4 TSI does 44.1mpg and 152g/km, while the 1.4-litre does an average of 43.5mpg and emits 152g/km of CO2.

It's not such a pretty picture with the larger petrols: the 1.6 averages only 36.7mpg and CO2 of 187g/km, while the 2.0-litre models both hover around 34mpg and 200g/km.
