Mitsubishi car insurance rates

What to expect when you’re insuring a Mitsubishi – plus compare quotes from insurers that could cover you.

Mitsubishis are growing in popularity in the UK. This is, in part, thanks to the brand’s greener models like the plug-in hybrid Outlander PHEV. This car is one of the UK’s most popular hybrid SUVs, having topped the UK’s best-selling electric cars list in 2017. The model is considered to be so mindful of its environmental impact that during 2018, it has qualified for a £2,500 government plug-in car grant towards the price tag. If that’s got you interested in owning one, read on to see how much it could cost to insure.

*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.
