The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

At R126 300 for the Suzuki Cele­rio and R129 995 for Kia Pi­canto, th­ese two small hatch­backs are good value for city driv­ing, with the ex­tra R3 395 for Pi­canto buys a two-year or 45 000 km ser­vice plan and a five-year, un­lim­ited kilo­me­tre war­ranty. The Celero and Go have op­tional ser­vices plan and the war­ranty is a nom­i­nal three years or 100 000 km. Their en­gines make 50 kW and be­tween 90 Nm and 104 Nm, which re­quire a gear down to pass any­thing or go up­hil. Dat­sun wants only R119 000 for the 1,2 Lux and when the nar­row 13-inch tyres it is sold with are re­placed by fat­ter (more ex­pen­sive) wheels, the Go looks re­ally cute.

vro­let wants R137 000 for the Spark 1,2 Cam­pus, and the price udes a lead­ing ser­vice plan of three years or 60 000 km, with a tory war­ranty that will out­last this ser­vice plan by two years and 000 km. Four­teen-inch tyres and a 60 kW/108 Nm en­gine com­plete pic­ture of the lit­tle hatch that has also been at the top of gazine’s bud­get buy list for years.
