The 2012 survey, which calculated the operating costs of more than 1,200 cars, reinforced Suzuki's status as offering the most value-packed and high-quality vehicles.
The Suzuki Alto
remained undefeated as the nation's most economical car to own and operate, with a weekly running cost of only $54.49 and average weekly fuel bill of $24.79.
With impressively low running costs, the Alto easily outshined its competitors including the Holden Barina Spark, Hyundai i20, Kia Rio, Nissan Micra, Toyota Yaris and Mitsubishi i-MiEV. But the award-winning line up does not end there.
In the Compact SUV Under $40,000 category, Suzuki Jimny
and Grand Vitara
, in several variants, claimed five of the top ten spots with weekly running costs from $65.56 and $72.63 respectively.
Suzuki also shone amongst the best performers in the light, small and mid-size car segments with the Swift total weekly running cost at $65.82, SX4 at $70.70 and Kizashi at $71.15.
With car-related expenses constantly on the rise, motorists can rest assure they are receiving some of the nation's best value when choosing Suzuki.
