  • Common FAQs
  • The 1.3-litre engine that powers the Suzuki Sierra sips fuel at 7.1 to 7.4 L/100 km. It can't quite match the thrift of the Hyundai Accent that boasts fuel consumption figures of only 6.3 L/100km.
  • The Suzuki Sierra is a lightweight but nifty hatchback that weighs only 870 kg. This is considerably lighter than one of its high profile competitors in the small hatchback market, the Kia Rio which weighs in a 1,170 kg.
  • The Suzuki Sierra is built for smooth motorways but not road racing with a top speed of 110 km/h. The Holden Barina CDX hatch can race to 182 km/h hitting the 100 km/h mark in 10.8 seconds along the way.
  • Given its lack of bulk, the Suzuki Sierra has a relatively light 750 kg braked towing capacity and only 400 kg unbraked. The Toyota Yaris beats that with figures of 550 kg and 1,050 kg braked and unbraked respectively.
  • The four-cylinder Suzuki Sierra set a world record for the highest altitude achieved by a four-wheel drive, so it must be a good car. If you're looking for a newer model, the Suzuki Jimny is one of the latest options.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: SUZUKI SIERRA (1996 TO 1999)

It was around 1996 that Suzuki changed the bodywork of the Sierra and gave the little off-roader coil springs to improve ride.

That also means these later versions are less likely to have been heavily modified as the coil-spring arrangement was less simple to fiddle with for massive suspension hikes and huge wheels and tyres.

In other ways, though, the Sierra is a bit of a victim of its own success and it has earned a hard-core group of rusted-on enthusiasts who cherish the things for their actual off-road abilities.

Which means the one you want to buy second-hand has avoided this sort of treatment. So be wary of a Sierra with mud tyres, a winch and big spot-lights. If it looks like it's lived in the jungle, it probably has.

Mechanically, these are simple vehicles, but they're old now, so check the condition of the engine and transmission carefully and be aware that nothing lasts forever.
