RACV report names Victoria’s most affordable new cars

Research from RACV has this week revealed Victoria’s most affordable new cars – or at least the ones least likely to burn a hole in your pocket.

The Victorian insurance provider’s survey showed that MG’s MG3 light hatchback is the most affordable new car to own in the state. 

First released in 2008, the MG3 hatchback has had regular updates over the past ten years. Now RACV’s research shows that the hatchback costs, on average, around $625.50 to run each month. The average monthly cost for all light cars in Victoria was around $738.43.

The average takes into account the initial purchase price, car loan repayments, registration costs, car insurance, auto club membership, petrol and EV charging costs, tyres and servicing and general repairs. All of these costs were averaged over a five-year time period.

Breaking down the average costs, RACV’s head of communications and engagement, Andrew Scannell said the up-front purchase price was most often the biggest cost.

“Registration, insurance and club membership make up about 15% to 20%, while fuel takes a 10% to 15% slice,” Scannell said. He added that servicing costs make up between 3% and 7% and tyres just 3% of overall running costs.
