How can I save on my Hyundai Tucson premiums?

Car insurance costs can sometimes be a bit of a headache, so it’s understandable that you would want to find the best deal at an affordable price. For your Hyundai Tucson premiums, there are a number of things that you could try in order to lower your costs. These include the following:

  • Avoid any driving convictions. It may sound obvious, but having convictions on your record will hike up your premium.
  • Be economical about your car usage. You could save money on your insurance by being more sparing with your car usage. Opting for public transport or walking when you can will help keep your mileage, and premiums, lower.
  • Pay annually rather than monthly. By paying annually, you could save £518.88 on average – a year!
  • Install extra safety precautions. The safer you make your car, the better your premium will be. By investing in extra safety features, your vehicle will be more secure and less of a risk to insure.
  • Don’t just accept your renewal quote. When it’s time to renew your policy, make sure you shop around – don’t just settle for the renewal price given to you!

How safe is the Hyundai Tucson?

The Hyundai Tucson was awarded a five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP when tested in 2015. The car scored 86% for adult protection and 85% for child protection.

The Tucson also scored well for its various safety systems on board, including autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance system and static-bending lights. As standard, the Hyundai Tucson comes with airbags for the driver and front passenger.

As previously mentioned, the safer your car is, the better your premium will be. You have the option to add blind-spot detection or choose one of the Tucsons with Smart Cruise Control. Ask your insurer which safety features could result in lower premiums.
