It isn’t difficult to see why hatchbacks are among the top choices when it comes to first-time car buyers. They’re efficient, easy to maneuver, and manageable when it comes to their size. And perhaps most important, there are plenty of affordable options in the segment, too.

If you’re shopping on a serious budget, Suzuki might be a brand worth checking out. The Japanese carmaker produces some of the most attainable hatchbacks in the entire country.

The Suzuki S-Presso, for example, carries a friendly P523,000 price tag. For that sum, you’re getting a “mini SUV” form factor, as well as a 1.0-liter K10B gasoline engine with an output of 67hp and 90Nm of torque paired with a five-speed manual transmission.

Suzuki claims this model’s manual variant can do up to 27.7km/L, too.
