Who are group 17 cars most suitable for?

Most cars found in group 17 are considered mid-range family vehicles. However, young drivers may struggle to find affordable insurance for vehicles in this group. On the other hand, a more experienced driver with a clean driving history and a decent no-claims discount should be able to find a reasonably priced premium for a group 17 car.
