A-Z of car manufacturers
Selecting a car can be a challenge, especially considering how many options there are to choose from. While it would be great to base our choice solely on how fast a car goes or how good it looks, practicalities often come first, such as tax and car insurance.
So, to get the wheels rolling, we’ve put together these handy guides covering different car manufacturers, so you can weigh up the pros and cons and choose wisely.
Chevrolet insurance – the all-American car. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to buy a brand new one, but you can still pick them up second hand.
Chrysler insurance – another American great, Chrysler cars have become synonymous with affordable luxury.
Ferrari insurance – driving one of these will make you feel like a titan, but you’ll still need insurance like the rest of us mortals.
Hyundai insurance – you’ll certainly get your money’s worth as all Hyundai cars come with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty.
Kia insurance – Hyundai’s little sister is making a name for herself and is determined not to be outdone. Furthermore, Kia cars come with an impressive seven-year warranty.
Lamborghini insurance – it might well be the car of dreams, but you’ll still need to do earthly things like sort the insurance out.
Land Rover insurance – if you’re looking for something utilitarian and old-school cool.
Lexus insurance – offering comfort and luxury, the Lexus is Toyota’s posher older cousin.
Lotus insurance – for speed freaks and racing fans. Just be sure to check out the potential cost of insurance beforehand!
Maserati insurance – designed for style and comfort, there’s no questioning these luxury credentials.
Mazda insurance – Mazda started out making three-wheeled trucks but now they’re on four, we bet they’re faster than before.
MG insurance – an icon of ‘Britishness’ (now made in China).
Mini insurance – still made in the UK, find out if the MINI’s insurance is as mini as its boot space.
Mitsubishi insurance – makers of the Shogun and Outlander, they also manufacture air conditioning units, so at least you can keep your cool off road.
Rolls-Royce insurance – the bad news is, even though you’ve got a Roller, you still need to insure it. The good news is, you can probably get your butler to do it for you.
Rover insurance – they don’t make Rovers anymore (the four-wheeled kind, not four legged), but there are still plenty around to choose from.
Saab insurance – if you’re after a bit of Scandinavian cool, then you might want to find out how to insure it.
Seat insurance – no, not ‘seat’ like for sitting, but ‘say-at’. It’s Spanish.
Skoda insurance – the Czech practical car of choice.
Smart insurance – the teeny tiny car that’s the motoring world’s answer to a contortionist – you can park it anywhere.
Vauxhall insurance – manufactured in Britain, Vauxhall’s been going since the early 1900s.
Volkswagen insurance – Volkswagen are so popular their cars don’t even go by their full name anymore. The Golf and Polo are like the car equivalents of Madonna or Kylie – why have two names when one will do?
Volvo insurance – nothing says safety like a Volvo, does it?
