Economy and emissions are impressive across the Doblo engine line-up and competitive for the class. The 1.4-litre petrol returns 39mpg and emits 166g/km, resulting in an annual road tax bill of £250. The 1.6-litre diesel is the highlight of the range, promising 54mpg and 138g/km , while the larger 2.0-litre diesel is good for 50mpg
Ford Grand C Max
Most efficient of the Grand C-MAX line-up is the 1.6-litre TDCi engine. It claims CO2 emissions of 129g/km and fuel economy of 57.7mpg. The more powerful 2.0-litre diesel unit is still impressively frugal, with 53.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 139g/km. Opting for one of the 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engines sees these figures rocket to 40.9mpg and 159g/km.
Peugeot Partner Tepee
Respectable economy and emissions will keep your day-to-day outlay for fuel and road tax to a minimum. Servicing and insurance shouldn’t prove expensive, and the Partner’s impressive equipment levels help boost residual values – handy when you come to sell it on in the future
Diesel models are inexpensive to run and offer between 41mpg and 55mpg, depending on the model. Petrol versions are pricier and return 38mpg and 39mpg. Insurance groups start at 12 and top out at 22, which isn’t bad at all for a large people carrier.
Vauxhall Zafira Tourer
If you’re worried about running costs, go for the ecoFLEX model; it emits 119g/km of CO2 and offers 62.8mpg economy. For a little bit more power, the other 2.0-litre CDTi engines – even the 163bhp – are quite cheap to run, returning 52.3mpg. Although the petrol engines are quieter and smoother, they are costly to tax and fuel.
The 2.0-litre DISI petrol engine returns 40.9mpg and puts out 159g/km so it’ll cost £155 in annual road tax, which is impressive for a petrol engine in a big car. The 1.6-litre diesel engine will return closer to 60mpg, so if you’re planning big mileage, that one makes more sense.
