Hyundai insurance rates

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

Last updated:

Hyundai is one of the top car manufacturers in the world and one that made its mark with its affordable family cars.

It seems Hyundai is also rising in popularity in the UK, with 89,925 vehicles being sold in the UK in 2018.

If you decide to go for a Hyundai, read on to see how much it might cost to insure.

What’s the average insurance cost for a Hyundai?

The average insurance cost of a Hyundai varies by car model, your driving record, where you live and several other factors. For a Hyundai New Tucson, the most popular model in the UK, we found that the average insurance cost is £912 a year, or £119 a month. This is for fully comprehensive cover and no optional extras. Your actual cost could be more or less depending on your age, driving record, the number of miles you drive in a year and other factors.

How a vehicle from Hyundai affects insurance costs

Many factors might work in your favour when insuring a Hyundai. Car insurance providers look at the cost of the car, the cost to repair and replace it, as well as how it does in safety tests.

Hyundai’s reasonable price tag often makes it more affordable to insure. Many Hyundais also get great safety ratings, which can further decrease the cost of insurance. However, some models might be more of a target to thieves, including the i10, i30, i30 1.4 T-GDI, iX35 Fuel Cell, i40 and Santa Fe with their keyless entry systems.
