RACQ finds Suzuki Celerio most affordable car to own and run.
The recently released new Suzuki Celerio has been named the most affordable new car on the Australian car market.
Taking over from its predecessor, the Suzuki Alto (which took the title in 2013 and 2014), Queensland based motoring club, RACQ, found that the Suzuki Celerio has an annual running and ownership cost of just $5,187.87.
That figure is lower than micro-car rivals – Mitsubishi Mirage ($5,874.16) and Holden Barina Spark ($6,119.92).

Light Car - Suzuki Swift GL ($7,086.12)
