I think you need to test plenty. I drove various models until I found one I was happy with. The diesel I tried (pretty rare to find 2nd hand) idled very low and had a look of a used car even though the mileage was low. I ended up going for the 2.0 Monaco, the insurance was less than the 1.9Dci as well ?
Round town I'm getting about 30mpg on open roads around 40+ (can't remember now but it was loaded and I was giving it some to see how it handled).
Currently in chris m's garage:
2000 Scenic 2.0 16v Monaco, BMW 3 Series, Pug 206
