What used Skoda Roomster estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Skoda Roomster estate?

Officially the 1.2-litre petrol model manages 42.2mpg on average, the 1.4-litre 41.5mpg and the 1.6-litre 40.4mpg. The lower-powered diesel manages 53.3mpg with the higher powered at 55.4mpg. The 1.9-litre comes in at 53.3mpg.

Servicing a Roomster isn't particularly expensive, and Skoda dealers have a very good reputation for customer satisfaction and service.

The diesel Roomsters are greenest, because all models emits under 140g/km of C02. The petrol models range from 159g/km to 185g/km. Insurance is cheap, with the least powerful model starting at group 2 rising to group 5 for the 1.9-litre diesel.

Depreciation will be your biggest cost while owning a Roomster, so make sure you don't pay over the odds in the first place. Car supermarkets are a good place to track down cut-price cars.
