    Top Five Cheapest New Cars in South Africa 

    South Africa’s new car market is going through a bit of a rough patch and the importance of cheaper, more affordable cars is higher than ever. Manufacturers have been quick to adapt and, as a result, offer some interesting options to consider on a tight budget. Let’s look at the five of the cheapest cars available in South Africa. 

    #5: Datsun Go Mid

    The Datsun Go was a success as soon as it entered the local market a few years ago. As popular as it was, it did have its fair share of critics that weren’t too pleased with some of its features (or lack thereof). The refreshed Datsun Go addressed a lot of these concerns, and finds its way onto the list with a starting price of R154,500. 

    Engine: 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder, petrol

    Drivetrain: 5-speed manual, front-wheel drive

    Output: 50kW of power, 104Nm of torque

    Weight: 788-kilograms

    Consumption: 5,5-litres/100km

    Warranty: 3-year/100,000km

     

    #4: BAIC D20 Hatch Comfort

    The Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Company, or BAIC, is a Chinese manufacturer that has managed to bring in a handful of models at very attractive prices. The BAIC B20 Hatch makes its way into fourth place on the list with a starting price of R149,990. 

    Engine: 1.3-litre, 4-cylinder, petrol

    Drivetrain: 5-speed manual, front-wheel drive

    Output: 75kW of power, 128Nm of torque

    Weight: 1091-kilograms

    Consumption: 6,4-litres/100km

    Warranty: 5-year/120,000km

     

    #3: Suzuki Celerio 1.0 GA MT

    Suzuki is big on offering a lot of value at reasonable prices and the Celerio is the essence of this idea. It’s the cheapest Suzuki available and makes up a significant portion of Suzuki South Africa’s sales figures, indicating the importance of the model in the manufacturers product line-up. It finds itself in third place on our list with a starting price of R141,400. 

    Engine: 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, petrol

    Drivetrain: 5-speed manual, front-wheel drive

    Output: 50kW of power, 90Nm of torque

    Weight: 825-kilograms

    Consumption: 4,7-litres/100km

    Warranty: 3-year/100,000km

     

    #2: Mahindra KUV 100 K2+ Petrol 

    The Mahindra KUV is the Indian manufacturers attempt at a compact-budget SUV, and at a starting price of R137,999 it’s a very attractive option. In fact, it misses out on the first place spot by just under R100. Interestingly, it’s also one of the most powerful models on the list. 

    Engine: 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder, petrol

    Drivetrain: 5-speed manual, front-wheel drive

    Output: 61kW of power, 115Nm of torque

    Weight: 1085-kilograms

    Consumption: 5,9-litres/100km

    Warranty: 3-year/100,000km

     

    #1: Renault Kwid 1.0 Expression

    The cheapest car in the country right now is the Renault Kwid, with a feather-light price tag of R137,900. You’re probably thinking that the cheapest car in SA would sell by the dozen, and you’d be right. The Kwid makes up just under 50% of Renault South Africa’s total sales. 

    Engine: 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, petrol

    Drivetrain: 5-speed manual, front-wheel drive

    Output: 50kW of power, 91Nm of torque

    Weight: 693-kilograms

    Consumption: 5,9-litres/100km

    Warranty: 5-year/150,000km
