"The Toyota Starlet makes enormous sense," says motoring journalist Ciro de Siena. Got R204 900?

Toyota discontinued its popular but long-in-the-tooth Etios in March.

In its place comes yet another Indian-built model, the Toyota Starlet.

The Starlet is, in fact, a rebadged Suzuki Baleno.

It’s already in showrooms across the country – got R204 900?

Pippa Hudson asked motoring journalist Ciro de Siena what he thinks about the newest “affordable” Toyota.

I’m not sad about that [the discontinuation of the Etios] at all…

Ciro De Siena, motoring journalist

It’s a very decent car and a very good price point… It’s identical to the Suzuki Baleno… Spec for spec, however, the Toyota is R17 000 cheaper… The entry-level Starlet will set you back R204 9000…

Ciro De Siena, motoring journalist

The Starlet makes enormous sense… it’s probably one of the most fuel-efficient petrol engines on the market…

Ciro De Siena, motoring journalist

Safety? It’s quite good…

Ciro De Siena, motoring journalist
