MoneySuperMarket has revealed the nation’s most popular cars for young drivers, with the Ford Fiesta claiming the top spot, followed by the Vauxhall Corsa and the Volkswagen Polo. But the research also finds that it’s the Fiat 500 Lounge that is the cheapest to insure.
The website analysed over 1 million quotes made by its customers between 9 June 2020 and 9 June 2021 to identify the most popular car with first-time drivers aged 17-19, and the typical cost of insuring these vehicles.
Though the Ford Fiesta is the most popular car for Gen Z Brits aged 17-19, at an average of £711 for fully comprehensive cover, it costs £294 more than the average fully comprehensive premium nationwide (£417). Those aged 20 and over pay an average of 51% less to insure the same vehicle, at £347.
The Fiat 500 Lounge (£519) is the cheapest car to insure for those aged 17-19 - nearly £200 (£192) cheaper than the Ford Fiesta. It is followed by the Ford Ka (£543) and the Fiat 500 (£560). First-time drivers who own the second most popular first car, the Vauxhall Corsa, pay an average of £689 for their insurance, £170 more than what a young driver of a Fiat 500 Lounge pays (£519).
