We have Kia Sorento but it is not economic in the slightest. Great car apart from being thirsty

Sorento does 35ish. 2.2L diesel. Can get up a 1 in 8 in 6th gear though

Mine's petrol
Kia Carens, Renault Grand Scenic, S Max or one of the new Citroen Berlingo vans
I don't quite understand your requirements. You mention a £275 budget and £1500 budget which sounds like a per month figure for a brand new car. Then you say you want something that'll run for 3-4 years if possible which suggests you're after a car that's seven or eight year old car.

A Renault Grand Scenic is a safe bet though. They've always been comfortable and economical (50mpg)+ and the current model is one of the prettiest cars on the market.
Currently got a Vauxhall Zafira Tourer 1.6 ecoflex cdti. Drives nice enough, Fairly cheap and well spec'd. Probably struggle to get any adults in boot though. Had to have a new clutch and flywheel which cost nearly £900. Also had to replace a glowplug which cost over £100 as it has a pressure sensor on it has two of those and two normal ones. It's a got 108k on it and it drives like new. I get around 46.2mpg mixture of driving.

Previously had a petrol Smax and that was a nice drive and if it had been newer I would have kept it. They're nearly two times more expensive as Zafira Tourers or would of had another.

Ford Galaxy fits adults in back, drives similar to Smax as it basically is one but bigger.

Sharan/Alhambra are decent too but a little boring looking and probably more than all the others.

Im 5.4 and can sit in the back ok.

there should be a lot of pre reg cars coming up now.

Hello there ,

Thank you for getting back . £275 on pcp with deposit money available £1500 so I proposed for options and see what best out their . Some older model on pcp is coming high . i.e. older x5 or land rover . Few cars I have looked at as per aforementioned model can be even 9 years old and pcp is over £300 . I hope this clears the query to help me and offer options
There are always people trying their luck. £275 a month is 10k depreciation over three years. A 9 year old to 12 year old car isn't going to drop £10k in value unless it's an Aston Martin or something.

I suspect they're including the cost of it being scrapped entirely in which case it's likely a similar price to just buying the car outright (Hire purchase or a loan).

Plus the likes of a Discovery or X5 definitely won't tick the economical box. You'd be lucky to get over 30mpg.

Really kind of you . You are right on economy and overall cost
I’m looking for a deal in that same criteria as well. I’m contemplating even getting an approved used Kia or a lease.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned VW Touran?

Because it's boring and a little small for adults in rear, Decent though.

It's a good suggestion as it is supposed to be one of the best in it's class.

Lol yes indeed the part I was looking at
We were also looking at XC90 but they are expensive (although hold value AFAIK)
