I’m a car expert – here are the best cars for cheap insurance from Ford to Volkswagen
A MOTORS EXPERT has uncovered the best cars for cheap insurance – and it can help motorists save hundreds of pounds.
Looking for cheap auto insurance is one of the best ways for motorists to save money, and choosing a vehicle with a low insurance rating is a good place to start.
Every car sold in the UK is placed under an insurance group, determined by the Association of British Insurers.
Safety engineering, safety and the cost of car repairs are taken into account when determining the group score.
And the car is then rated from 1 to 50, with 1 being the cheapest and 50 being the most expensive.
Conveniently, the car experts at Auto Express have ranked the cheapest cars to insure in the UK this year.
The Ford Fiesta is the cheapest car to insure due to the availability of parts and low repair costs.
Two of the three models in Insurance Group 5 have Ford’s 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine.
This three-cylinder engine may seem small, but it has good power for its size, is pleasant to drive and has good fuel economy.
The latest i10 is greatly improved over its predecessor; better looking with decent kit included by default.
Insurance groups for the i10 are very low, so premiums should be affordable – but buyers should keep in mind that Hyundai’s city car is quite expensive to buy compared to its rivals.
Kia has experienced a design revolution in recent years – and the Picanto is a clear example.
Although it has a lot more technology than the previous generation, it retains the small size and low price of the previous model, with insurance coverage to match.
The Kia Rio is a larger car than the Picanto but also occupies lower insurance groups.
The 1.2-litre, 83 hp model, in either trim level ‘1’ or ‘2’, belongs to Insurance Group 4.
The base model includes automatic headlights and air conditioning, but if you want extras like smartphone connectivity and cruise control, you’ll have to opt for the trim level 2
One of the larger cars in Group 3, the Ibiza is an excellent option if you’re looking for something more practical.
SEAT’s supermini is now available as a five-door hatchback, so this combined with its overall size offers a reasonable amount of space for all passengers.
This comes after a car expert compiled a list of the best cars for new drivers.
Also, an engine expert unveiled the best seven-seater cars on the market.
