Mini insurance cost factors

Insurance companies look at a car’s safety ratings, its likelihood of being stolen and how costly it is to replace or repair, among other factors, when determining the cost of insurance.

Despite a Mini’s diminutive size, it does surprising well in safety tests, which helps to bring down the cost of insuring one. It’s also not too costly to repair or replace, another positive for the cost of insurance. However, there are less expensive cars of the same size out there.

About the Mini brand

Mini can trace its roots back to 1957, when the Morris Company set out to build a “small, fuel-efficient car capable of carrying four adults, within economic reach of just about everyone.” Two years later the first Mini was launched. The British public embraced the Mini, and it quickly became a cultural phenomenon.

In 1999, the new concept Mini was introduced in the US, the version seen on our roads and highways today. The Mini went on to win the 2003 North American Car of the Year Award, along with the hearts’ of American enthusiasts across the country.
