Ford car insurance rates

What to expect when insuring a Ford, and the insurers that could cover you.

Last updated:

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.

What’s the average insurance cost for a Ford?

The insurance cost for a Ford varies greatly depending on the model you select and your own circumstances. For the Ford Fiesta, the most popular Ford model on the nation’s roads, we ran quotes using a scenario and found the average was £669 annually or £72 a month for fully comprehensive cover with no optional extras. Your actual will be more or less, depending on your driving record and the number of miles you drive in a year as well as other factors.

What’s the FordPass?

FordPass allows drivers that download the free app to access a whole suite of connected services, all in one place. If a driver arrives in a new city, they could use the FordPass guides to search and pay for parking, find the closest petrol station or find the best route through a congested road during rush hour.

The offers compared on this page are chosen from a range of products whose details Finder has access to track; they don't represent all the products available in the market. Unless indicated otherwise, products are displayed in no particular order or ranking. The terms "best", "top", "cheap" (and variations) are not product ratings and are subject to our terms of use.

*51% of consumers could save £200. Quote aggregator Seopa split the insurers on its comparison systems into different categories. It then selected quotes from the most popular providers as well as quotes from other providers which returned a price. It then selected providers, weighting them according to UK insurance market share (data from the Association of British Insurers), choosing the cheapest of either the most popular providers or other providers ("the cheapest selected quote"). Seopa then compared the cheapest quote on its system against this "cheapest selected" quote. The company then took the savings figure which 51% or over could have saved, using that formula. The savings you could achieve will depend on your individual circumstances and how you selected your current insurance supplier.
