Suzuki is known for being the kei car specialist. Here’s a look at our best small cars for under R200k, and what they have to offer.

 

Suzuki has long been on top of the compact car trend, thanks to the strict Kei (mini) Car laws in Japan. The growing congestion on the South African roads (especially in city centres), coupled with the ever increasing cost of fuel, is pushing South African motorists to follow the Kei car trend - choosing smaller, more cost efficient vehicles.

Have a look at four of our best small cars, all priced (very competitively) below R200 000

The master of small cars, here are our best small cars for a steal.

The Suzuki Celerio

Looking for a zippy set of wheels that’s still got room to sneeze in?

  • Starting price: R153 900
  • Warranty: 200 000 km / 5 years*
  • Nickname: The XL small car
  • Fuel consumption: 4.7L/KM
  • ABS
  • Dual SRS Airbags
  • Airconditioning
  • Power steering

The Celerio has been nicknamed the ‘XL small car’ because, despite its petite stature, there’s still loads of leg room for you and your passengers - so you won’t feel like a tin of sardines on a road trip. The Celerio was voted Budget Car of the Year (2017) at the Cars.co.za Consumer Awards and won Car Magazine’s Best Buy Award (2017) for cars under R160K.
