Cheapest Cars to Insure in 2018

Cheapest Cars to Insure in 2018

The cost of car insurance is increasing every year. If you are a new or young driver, the costs are likely to be especially high for you, so we have compiled a list of cars in the lowest possible insurance group to help you keep your car insurance costs as low as possible ...

As a general rule, entry level models will always be in a lower insurance group, as you start to add more features in the higher trim levels, you make the car more desirable and so the insurance cost increases. Generally, low insurance group cars are also city cars or small hatchbacks with lower powered engines.
