Car insurance groups use a scale from 1 to 50 to help determine how expensive it will be to insure a car. Those in group 1, which have smaller engines, are cheapest to insure, while those in group 50 are the most expensive. The groups are based on the Group Rating Panel by Thatcham Research. Other factors relating to your personal circumstances will also influence the premium.
The cheapest cars to insure are those vehicles which are relatively inexpensive to buy – usually low-specification models with smaller engines. You could expect to find cars such as the Toyota Yaris, Vauxhall Corsa, Kia Rio and Dacia Sandero among the cheapest to insure.
We’ve crunched the numbers and below is a breakdown of some of the cheapest cars to insure depending on which age group you fall in to.
