Its looks are challenging, says motoring journalist Ciro De Siena. But it’s well-specced and will find a lot of buyers.

South Africa has a new “most affordable car on the market”.

Coming in below the Celerio is the somewhat peculiar-looking S-Presso.

It’s going for R134 900, which includes a five-year or 200 000-kilometre warranty and a free two-year or 30 000-kilometre service plan as well as a year’s free insurance.

The chunky car’s three-cylinder, one-litre petrol engine consumes a measly 4.9 litres per 100 kilometres.

The S-Presso comes with two airbags, ABS and EBD.

Pippa Hudson interviewed Ciro De Siena, a motoring journalist at Cars.co.za.
