Britain’s cheapest car

Rather than use the word ‘cheap’ Suzuki claim that their Alto is the UK’s ‘most inexpensive car’.

Going cheap? The Suzuki Alto

The Alto SZ model costs just £5,995 and its low CO2 emissions means it’s ineligible for London congestion charging (that’s a potential annual cost saving of £2,600 to a commuter travelling into the Capital five days a week).

With a five door body, there are three levels of spec – SZ, SZ3 and SZ4. Available from today the low price is held until 30 September because it is ‘VAT free’ until then.

And, as a city car, it’s really not that bad with good levels of equipment for the money. It will return about 66mpg and has a three year or 60,000 mile warranty. It also sits in the 4E insurance group which should mean it’s cheap for new drivers to insure.

If you are looking for a decent runabout/city car then the Alto could be for you – or will be until the next Dacia model is launched later this year.
