Before you buy or lease a family car, you must know how much insurance will set you back. Here at Nationwide Vehicle Contracts, we've made the process easier by compiling a guide listing the cheapest family cars to insure.
What factors influence car insurance costs?
Before we get into the cars, it's crucial that you understand the factors that influence car insurance prices. It depends on several factors, including:
- The driving history and 'insurability' of the primary policy holder and/or named driver. This includes any no-claims history, the length of time driving, the age of the driver, the profession of the driver and their postcode
- What can be considered a 'family car' (i.e. the size of the family, the age of the family, and the actual requirements of the family)
- What type of car it is and its' value, power and desirability to thieves
You will have your idea of what you want and the budget you can afford, but to help you out even further, we've scanned the wide world of insurance and come up with some suggestions.
As this guide is focused on family cars, the criteria to be included is five doors and a boot space of at least 300 litres.
NOTE: The insurance groups provided are for the car's newest model. Older versions may differ in insurance groups.
