With over-pricing an issue of debate in Egypt’s vehicle market, it can be difficult for potential customers looking to purchase new cars to decide what best option suits their needs. Daily News Egypt has identified the six lowest priced cars available in the domestic market, with prices ranging from EGP 125,000 to EGP 169,000.
The cheapest in Egypt: Suzuki Alto
At the lowest price in the Egyptian market of EGP 125,000 for an 800 cc engine, the Suzuki Alto comes with a manual transmission and electronic fuel injection.
The model also includes 4 cylinders and a fuel tank capacity of 35 litres, while its top speed is 130 km/h. The Suzuki Alto features standard 13-inch wheels, front electric windows, a hydraulic steering wheel, front door storage, a front cup holder, and a total area of 180 cm in the rear trunk.
However, one thing for potential buyers to bear in mind is that the car lacks many safety factors compared to other vehicles, due to its low price. It does not feature airbags for the driver or front passenger, and does not come with ABS brakes. The Suzuki Alto does come with an immobiliser system.
Suzuki S Presso
Suzuki also offers the second cheapest car available in the Egyptian market, with the S Presso 2021 model coming in at about EGP 146,000.

It also features a CD player, USB plug, and Bluetooth input, with the trunk’s total area coming in at 280 cm.
