Ssangyong Tivoli 1.6 D SE 5dr - Cheapest cars to run

Cheapest cars to run - Ssangyong Tivoli 1.6 D SE 5dr: total cost of ownership: £7,921.00

SsangYong Tivoli - front

Whoa… what’s this? The Tivoli is a Ssangyong that won’t depreciate like a stone, or get you laughed out of the supermarket car park.

We know the Tivoli is cheap to buy, but even we were surprised to see it make the top 10 list of cheap cars to own. The secret is CAP’s predicted depreciation rate of just 52 percent – most current Ssangyong percentages are in the 30s. This supports our view that Ssangyong is finally on the right track with a city car that’s decent enough to drive, and crucially has the looks to take on the likes of Nissan’s Juke in the compact crossover sector.

Total cost of ownership (3-years, 36,000 miles): £7,921.00Monthly running costs: £220.03Cost per mile: 26p
