They’ve been around forever (well, 1903) and are designed to be efficient, reliable and reasonably priced. The humble Ford Fiesta has topped the UK’s best-selling car list for four decades, and over 94,500 Ford Fiesta models were sold in 2017 in the UK alone. Other popular models in the UK include the Ford Ka, Ford Kuga and Ford Focus. Since it’s popular, does that also mean it’s cheap to insure? Here’s what you need to know.
