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.

Pros and cons of a Hyundai


  • Good safety ratings
  • Affordable price tag
  • Reasonable insurance rates


  • Some models are targeted by criminals
