What used Vauxhall Tigra coupe will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Vauxhall Tigra coupe?

The Tirga is based on the Corsa, so parts availability isn't a problem, and, while Vauxhall dealers are plentiful and good value, an independent garage will be even cheaper. Service intervals are every 9000 miles on pre-'95 cars, and every 10,000 for those built after - pretty much par for the course.

Regular running costs aren't bad for a coupe. The 1.4-litre has an insurance grouping of 10, compared with the 1.6-litre's 13, so it'll be noticeably cheaper to insure. Fuel economy is good, too, with the 1.4 returning 36.8mpg and the 1.6 36.0mpg. The automatic manages 34.0mpg.
