Which Is Britain's Cheapest New Car?

Nissan Pixo

Nissan Pixo

The Nissan Pixo is listed as Britian’s cheapest new car at £6,995.  But is it?  We looked around the internet to see if we could get rivals for less.

And guess what?  There’s cheaper.  Much cheaper.

Here are eight brand new cars you can choose from for the same or less than the list price of the Pixo.  These are all new cars with no previous owners, but sitting in dealer stock typically so you’re stuck with the spec and colour.  But they still represent a useful saving over normal retail price.

1. Fiat Panda 1.2 Active £5,895  (£2,260 saving) — online marque specialist

Due for replacement next year, the little Fiat is roomy and a hoot to drive.  69bhp petrol; top speed of 101mph; 0-62mp in 13.4 secs; 57.6mpg; 113g/km CO2.

2. Nissan Pixo 1.0 Visia £5,950 (£1,045 saving) — Nissan dealer, limited stock

Joint venture between Nissan and Suzuki and built in India.  Soul-less but competent.  68bhp petrol; top speed of 96mph; 0-62mph in 14 secs; 64.2mpg; 103g/km CO2.

3. Peugeot 107 1.0 Urban Lite £6,295 (£2,400 saving) — Peugeot dealer, limited stock

Same car underneath as Toyota Aygo and built to those standards.  Cool too.  68bhp petrol; top speed of 100mph; 0-62mph in 14.2 secs; 62.8mpg; 103g/km CO2.

4. Perodua Myvi 1.3 SXi £6,495 (£1,553 saving) — online car broker

Well below standard from budget Malaysian brand.  Hardly any dealers either.  86bhp petrol; top speed of 106mph; 0-62mph in 11.3 secs; 48.7mpg; 137g/km CO2.

5. Suzuki Alto 1.0 SZ2 £6,495 (£1,320 saving) — Suzuki dealer, limited stock

Sister car to Nissan Pixo, all but identical except for the trim and badges.  68bhp petrol; top speed of 96mph; 0-60mph in 13.5 secs; 64.2mpg; 103g/km CO2.

6. Hyundai i10 1.2 Classic £6,695 (£1,500 saving) — Hyundai dealer, limited stock

Newish entry level car from the world’s fifth largest car maker.  Class leading in some areas.  85bhp petrol; top speed of 105mph; 0-62mph in 12.2 secs; 61.4mpg; 105g/km of CO2.

7. Chevrolet Spark 1.0 £6,720 (£495 saving) — online car broker

Built in Korea rather than the US.  Competent but not much more.  68PS petrol; top speed of 96mph; 0-62mph in 15.5 secs; 55.4mpg; 119g/km CO2.

8. Citroen C1 1.01 VT  £6,995 (£1,700 saving) — Citroen dealer, limited stock

Same car as the Peugeot 107 (above) and Toyota Aygo.  But running costs likely to be less than both.  68bhp petrol; top speed of 98mph; 0-62mph in 13.7 secs; 62.8mpg; 103g/km CO2.
