Lowest running costs

Categories:

When it comes to buying a new car there are so many variables to consider, one of the most common is ongoing costs.

AS you start thinking about exactly how much petrol you need to out in your car every week for your daily activities, it’s important to remember running costs don’t stop there. Anyone who has owned a “luxury brand” (think German/British) you’ll know that the extra costs of servicing alone can double the everyday costs compared to some lower-cost Asian makes. 

If you are after pure affordabilty it’s fairly obvious that the smaller the car, the lower the running costs, and the lower the depreciation – mainly due to the lower initial outlay. While cheap and cheerful can be great for those only needing to transport themselves from point a to point b, for those of us that need to take passengers, school bags, trade tools, or even rideshare something bigger is exactly what we start looking for.

Considering the lowest price large sedan requires double the outlay of the micro Mitsubishi Mirage ($115.11 per week) or Kia Picanto ($111.49), it’s important to choose wisely when upsizing. Currently, the large sedan costing the lowest amount day today is the Holden Commodore ($219.43), with the cheapest to run mid-size sedan being the Toyota Camry Hybrid ($181.18).
