Australia’s Most Affordable Car 2017 is Suzuki’s Celerio

RACV finds the little Suzuki is cheapest

The Suzuki Celerio, decent little car that it is, won’t be letting go of its long-held crown of being Australia’s Most Affordable Car.

Predecessor, the Suzuki Alto, had the title for years and the RACQ has repeatedly found the Celerio as being the best car for your hip pocket in more recent times.

Now RACV has also found the Suzuki hatch provides budget-conscious buyers with the most affordable new car experience.

Across factors such as initial purchase price, maintenance, fuel and depreciation, Suzuki’s Celerio came it at just $100.78 per week.

Micro car rivals – the Kia Picanto ($109.49), Mitsubishi Mirage ($116.80) and Holden Spark ($122.02) couldn’t match.

Suzuki also had the cheapest cars to own and run in the Light Car and Small SUV (2WD) categories with the Baleno and Vitara respectively.

Suzuki Australia boss, Andrew Moore, welcomed the RACV recognition.

“The cornerstone of Suzuki’s philosophy has always been to provide high quality products and outstanding value for money, both of which so clearly shine through in these fantastic results.”
