[REVIEW] Best new 'cheap' small car in South Africa
Every week on a Wednesday, Pippa Hudson interviews motoring journalist Ciro de Siena.
He usually takes questions from listeners.
Question (from John in Paarl):
I’m considering getting a small second car.
I like the VW Up, but I've also been looking at the Suzuki Celerio and Toyota Aygo.
I don't mind second-hand either.
De Siena reckons any of the cars mentioned by John should be good buys.
Having said that; he seems to prefer Suzuki, mentioning a second-hand Baleno as a good alternative to the new cars looked at by John.
If safety – not driving pleasure – is what you’re after, then you can hardly beat the Toyota Aygo.
All of those cars are good choices. Suzuki, being small car specialists, offers a lot of cars in that range… The Swift, Ignis, the Celerio, the Baleno…Ciro De Siena, motoring journalist
A second-hand Baleno is a fantastic purchase. One of the best value cars on the road at the moment…Ciro De Siena, motoring journalist
The Toyota Aygo is not my favourite, but it outshines the rest in terms of safety equipment. It’s one of the only cars in that segment with electronic stability control. It has four airbags with an option of six… It feels a bit like a tin can… built to a prize. It wouldn’t be my choice…Ciro De Siena, motoring journalist
