These are some of the cheapest cars to insure

  • February 22, 2023

Car insurance can often be one of the biggest expenses involved in owning and running a car, and like most things, the price of it is going up.

According to the Association of British Insurers (ABI), car insurance premiums increased by eight per cent in the final quarter of 2022, with the average premium now costing £470. If you’re a new driver, or just want to keep your motoring costs to a minimum, looking for a cheaper-to-insure car is a great option.

Every car has an insurance group, which ranges from 1 (the lowest premiums) to 50 (the highest), and it’s an easy way of finding the cars that are cheapest to insure. So, whether you’re a new driver or just want a car that’s cheaper to insure, here we look at some of the best new and used cars that will help to reduce your bills.

Please note that you should always get quotes for insurance before purchasing a car.

Hyundai’s i10 has become a popular choice with new drivers thanks to its affordability and small dimensions. It should also be comparatively cheap to insure, with some versions sitting in the lowest insurance group 1.

For these models, you want to look out for a car fitted with the 1.0-litre ‘Blue Drive’ petrol engine, sold in 2015 and 2016. It should also be very cheap on fuel costs, with Hyundai claiming 70mpg, while low CO2 emissions mean it costs just £20 a year in an annual car tax. Used prices start from around £5,000.
