Perodua Nippa knocks SEAT Arosa off CAP's cheapest car to run slot

The figures are based on day-to-day expenses combined with a forecast second-hand value at three years/60,000 miles. The Nippa has overtaken the Arosa 1.0-litre as the cost champion due to a recent £740 price reduction making it the cheapest new car in the UK. An £800 reduction has also contributed to a 13-place leap up the chart by the Ford Fiesta 1.3 Encore three-door (14.8ppm), while solid residual values have contributed to the Volkswagen Polo 1.6 CL three-door, which costs twice as much as the Nippa new, but worked out at 16.8ppm.
