Running costs

Despite being cheaper to buy, the Agila is not as well equipped as its close cousin, the Suzuki Wagon R+, although it depreciates slower thanks to the Vauxhall badge.

Emissions summary

Agila scores very well on the eco front. With an average of 147 g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are comparably low for a mini estate. It's worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.0-litre petrol, which is one of the greenest models in the range.

The range is impressively frugal, averaging 46 mpg.
