Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Despite its shortcomings in various departments, the Turismo is staggeringly cheap, undercutting similarly specced rivals by several thousands of pounds. Whether that’s enough to overlook its other shortcomings will ultimately be down to personal circumstance, but it is certainly a big consideration if you’re looking to save money.

Running costs won’t be especially cheap, though. Claimed fuel economy ranges from 39.2mpg to 36.2mpg depending on your spec, while CO2 emissions are high at between 189g/km and 205g/km. All of this is worse than its rivals, but not by an embarrassing amount.

Overview

If you want lots of space for not a lot of money, then the Turismo delivers. But in every other respect, it is drab and uninspiring

  • Cheap to buy
  • Masses of space inside
  • Poor handling
  • Noisy engine
  • Cheap-feeling interior
