What used Vauxhall Meriva MPV will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Vauxhall Meriva MPV?

Compare the Meriva's price with those of other superminis and you'll see that the Vauxhall is noticeably more expensive. Weigh this against the car you get for your cash, however, and it takes some of the sting out.

The space and practicality you'll get for your money is well worth the extra, and when you compare it to similar cars like the Renault Modus and Nissan Note, it's a far more level playing field.

Pick the right engine and you'll enjoy low running costs. Our favourite 1.4 will return an average of 44.1mpg and you'll pay a group 4 insurance premium. The 1.7 diesel will costs more to insure (it's in group 6), but you'll get 53.3mpg.

The rest of the engines, even the sporty VXR, will all return at least 35mpg although this model has group 12 insurance.
