The Most Surprisingly Expensive Cars To Insure

We all dream of one day owning our favourite car. Some of us simply dream of being able to drive it, just so we can say we have. It’s not until we take a look at the insurance prices of some of our favourite dream cars where we start to feel grateful for our Ford Focus’ and our Skoda Fabia’s.

However, there are some seemingly cheaper cars out there that will shock you at how much they cost to insure:

BMW 2 Series

BMW’s aren’t typically cheap, but the Series 2 is definitely one of their more affordable models. This doesn’t stop the car appearing in group 46 of the 50-tier insurance gradient. Just four groups off the top spot means that this BMW model is one of the most expensive cars to insure.

Volvo XC90

A surprisingly high entry is the Volvo XC90. The vehicle actually comes packed with advanced safety equipment and has been regarded as one of the most safety-focused cars out there. It isn’t exactly the most attractive car out there either, which begs the question ‘How does it fall into group 45?’ – the fact that the 400-horsepower hybrid is actually the world’s fastest seven-seater SUV may go some way to explaining it.

Citroen DS3

The DS3 is a popular choice amongst young buyers thanks to its smart styling and fun nature. But any young driver may be put off when they see the price of their insurance quote, as the vehicle is listed in group 39, putting it into the same category as the Range Rover and the Porsche Macan.

MINI Convertible

Not you as well MINI? Another popular car amongst young and older drivers alike, which is notoriously expensive to insure, is the MINI. Finding it in group 36 is hard to swallow; especially as it sits beside the Audi Q7, Mercedes E-Class and Volkswagen’s V6-engined Golf R32.

When buying new or used cars, it is always important to research how much insurance costs will be on a car before you buy it. Rushing to buy your car first may end up landing you with a surprisingly high insurance cost. And that really sours that new car smell.
