THE annual Kinsey report has, for the third year in a row, announced that Datsun Go is South Africa’s most affordable car.

The report, regarded as the most comprehensive survey on everyday motoring, covers vehicles available locally.

It surveyed parts pricing of 69 vehicles across nine segments during July 2017.

These are the parts which ultimately affect your insurance premium and repair costs on a vehicle.

The report highlights the true cost of vehicle ownership and has become the benchmark independent parts pricing survey in the South African motoring industry.

Under the category of City Cars — entry level cars for first time buyers — the Datsun Go has been named the best overall in the service, repair and crash parts sections respectively.

Des Fenner, general manager of Datsun South Africa said: “With 2017 results of the Kinsey report, it is further evidence of the Datsun Go’s attractive pricing structure in SA, which ensures that South Africans can still maintain their vehicles at affordable prices, even in these tough economic conditions.”

He added that by scooping the title for the third consecutive year, Datsun was fulfilling its promise to bring quality, affordable motoring to South Africans.

“The Datsun Go has brought independence from public transport schedules to many and provided them with the personal mobility that has enabled these buyers to find and access new opportunities within the economy,” said Fenner.

He added that the affordability of parts, in conjunction with class leading fuel consumption, makes the total cost of ownership of the Datsun Go one of the best in South Africa.

Fenner also maintains that “the Go has not only helped motorists to contain motoring costs at a time when there are massive budget pressures on most households, but has also enabled many South Africans to enter the new car market for the first time.

“The Datsun Go continues to make an indelible impression on the entry-level vehicle­ segment.”
