Are you buying a new car?

Making sure your car is insured with a trusted car insurance company is absolutely crucial in South Africa, especially due to the ever-rising crime and car accident statistics. Because of the tough economic times we,ve been faced with, cutting down on costs seems to be the only way to make ends meet for most South Africans.

One way to cut down expenses is to make sure you buy a car that’s cheap to insure. According to Compare Guru, here are the standard cars that you can expect to pay low insurance premiums for:

  • Toyota Auris
  • Toyota Yaris
  • Toyota Corolla
  • Toyota Tazz
  • Opel Corsa
  • Opel Corsa Lite
  • Volkswagen Polo
  • Volkswagen Golf
  • Hyundai 110
  • Ford Figo
  • Ford Focus

There are a few factors that determine insurance premiums for cars, such as the age of the car, the engine, added extras to the car and whether or not there is a tracking system installed in the car. There are also other reasons for lower premiums, including:

  • Cars with low to medium speed engines and low fuel consumptions
  • Locally assembled cars
  • Cars with cheaper and easier to find parts
  • Cars that are not often stolen
  • Driving short distances
  • Lighter colour cars as darkly shaded cars are less visible at night and, therefore, may pose higher accident risks
