Suzuki has extended its ‘VAT free’ offer on the Suzuki Alto range to the end of 2013, meaning the entry-level Alto SZ is available for £5,999.
But the £1200 discount on the base model fails to secure it the accolade of Britain’s cheapest new car. The Dacia Sandero is priced at £4 less.
The offer, which has been extended until the end of March, sees up to £1,724 cut from the Alto range’s price list. Finance packages on the Alto have also been extended, meaning the Alto SZ can be had with a deposit of £779, followed by 41 payments of £99 with a final payment of £2352 at the end of the lease.
Suzuki describes the Alto as the “best value” city car on sale in Britain. Its emissions of 99g/km make it exempt from both road tax and the London Congestion Charge.
