Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 41 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Costs are generally quite high for what is actually quite a small car. Despite being turbo-charged, the tiny three-cylinder 657cc engine gives acceptable – though not outstanding – fuel economy (around 40mpg ). Insurance is very expensive at Group 13 and rarity means parts can be costly. The only upside is that constant demand means that used values stay surprisingly firm.

Like all Suzukis, the Cappuccino is generally very reliable; however, the little engine has to work very hard, so check for service history.
