Act fast if you want to buy these used cars

If you are in the market for a used Renault Kwid, Suzuki Celerio, or Toyota Agya as your next daily driver, be aware that these are among the fastest-selling vehicles on the pre-owned market, according to used-car platform Motus Select.

These hatchbacks tend to fly off showroom floors because they meet the expectations of being “quick, comfortable, and affordable,” said Motus.

We take a look at what the wallet-friendly commuters offer to buyers.

Renault Kwid

The Renault Kwid was updated in 2019 and is sold in three variants each powered by a 1.0-litre petrol engine producing 50kW and 91Nm.

The motor pairs with either a five-speed manual or automated manual gearbox, with fuel consumption listed at 4.4l/100km.

Standard trimmings include electric front windows, manual airconditioning, rear parking sensors, a digital instrument cluster, a Bluetooth radio playing through two speakers, dual front airbags, and ABS.

The Dynamique and Climber variants also bring rear power windows, an 8-inch media display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a reverse camera, and additional styling elements.

Suzuki Celerio

An all-new Suzuki Celerio range was introduced in early 2022 and it is readily available on the pre-owned market.

Offered in three specifications, the Celerio makes use of a 1.0-litre petrol motor putting out 49kW and 89Nm which again, can either be connected to a five-speed manual or automated manual shifter.

The hatch’s fuel usage of 4.2l/100km then makes it the most frugal on the list.

Buyers of the newer generation can expect amenities such as a multifunction steering wheel, multi-information driver display, two speakers, manual airconditioning, an auto start-stop system, rear parking sensors, dual front airbags, and ABS with brake assist.

The Celerio GA does not have a pre-installed radio and is regularly equipped with aftermarket systems, however, the pricier GL comes with a 7-inch touchscreen offering Bluetooth, as well as electric front and rear windows, two extra speakers, and central locking.

Toyota Agya

The Agya comes with the undeniable appeal of the Toyota badge and can be had in a variety of four trims.

Launched in 2020, this hatchback sports a 1.0-litre petrol engine capable of 49kW and 89Nm at an average fuel consumption of 4.8l/100km, and there are both five-speed manual and four-speed automatic models to choose from.

Features are standard across the range, each Agya offering LED lights, manual airconditioning, all-round electric windows, two speakers, dual front airbags, central locking, and ABS.

Similar to the Suzuki, buyers should take note that certain Agya specifications do not have a pre-installed entertainment system and will likely be sold with an aftermarket unit – if any – whereas others will have a Toyota-fitted radio with Bluetooth support and will have “(Audio)” written in their names.
