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.
