- The car was kept in a secure car park during the day and on a driveway at the home.
- The car was used for reasons of a social, domestic, pleasure, and commuting nature.
- The driver kept to the national average of 10,000 miles per year.
- The driver had a good credit history and a clean driving record. They maintained no driving convictions or claims in the last five years, and had never been convicted of a non-motoring offence.
- We requested comprehensive insurance.
How can I bring down my premiums?
We understand that you don’t want to be spending a fortune on your car insurance if you don’t have to. So we went away and did our research and found a couple of things that could knock a bit off your insurance cost. Check them out below:
- Insurers will want to know whether or not your car possesses any modifications. Whilst your premiums may come down if these modifications enhance the safety or security of your car, modifications in the racing sphere or other non-safety measures may instead increase your insurance.
- Sometimes your insurance may differ due to circumstances completely out of your control. Insurance companies need to consider your age, sex, and geographical location as factors in determining how secure an investment you are for insurance purposes.
- How financially secure are you? You can actually save money on your premiums if you opt to pay your insurance in a single annual payment rather than every month. In fact, our research indicates the switch would save you an average of £57.97 every year.
- Insurers value security. If possible, try to keep your car secured during the day and overnight, for instance on a driveway or in a garage where possible rather than parked on the street.
- How much do you drive compared to 10,000 miles a year, the national average? Insurance companies may reward drivers who drive below the average, and may actually increase the premiums of drivers who regularly drive above it (deeming these drivers at greater risks of accidents!).
Random facts about the Chevrolet Lacetti
- The model name, ‘Lacetti’ is derived from a Latin root word that translates as ‘youthful and energetic.’

Safety and the Chevrolet Lacetti
Whilst the Lacetti has yet to be tested by Euro NCAP, its Australian model (the Holden Viva) received a four-star rating for safety. This indicates the Lacetti is certainly a safe vehicle, so don’t worry!
The standard safety features include front and side airbags, alongside an anti-lock braking system. It should be noted, however, that the Lacetti does not offer an electronic stability programme on any versions, a common criticism for reviewers. Ask your insurer what extra safety and security features you can add in return for lower premiums.
