Cars that are Better Used with Great Real World MPG

Share

cars-1578513_1920For any motorist in the market for a vehicle but wanting to get great value, it can be a real challenge. One way to save money is to find used cars which are a few years old with high initial depreciation and high MPG; these can be extremely affordable and also very cheap to run. Here are a few of the best real world MPG cars that are better used due to their initial depreciation.

Vauxhall Meriva Mini MPV

The Vauxhall Meriva Mini MPV suffers from poor residual values, but this can be turned into an advantage if you buy one that is around 3 years old. Models of this age retain just 25.2% of the original cost, but it is an excellent family-friendly compact vehicle which offers over 60 mpg from the diesel engine.

Kia Carens MPV

One of Kia’s finest automobiles but one which has a large initial depreciation, this is a great vehicle to pick up used as it will retain around 28.5% of the price. It is a practical and compact MPV with a spacious interior, making it ideal for family use. The 1.7-litre diesel returns economy of 62.8 mpg whilst the less economical 1.6-litre petrol can return 45.6 mpg.

Citroen C4 hatchback

Although overshadowed by rivals in the competitive modern family hatchback field, the Citroen C4 hatchback is a great option and particularly if buying second hand. Demand is relatively low and the 1.2-litre petrol only retains 27.4% of its value after 3 years, plus it is cheap to run with a few different efficient engines. The stop-start diesel version can manage up to 85.6 mpg, whilst there is a petrol version that can reach slightly over 60 mpg.

Audi A5 Coupe

The Audi A5 is a classy car which received great reviews, but it is also known to depreciate quickly over the first 3 years of ownership. This makes it a great choice to buy used if you can find one that is almost new. The 2-litre diesel model returns 68.9 mpg, whilst the entry-level 2.0-litre petrol version offers 50.4 mpg. A used Audi A5 Coupe which is only a few years old may be hard to find, but it would be a great investment.

Due to high initial depreciation and large MPG, any of these vehicles would be a smart and economical purchase to make if they are used and just a few years
