Who are Ford?
Back in 1903, Henry Ford had a vision to make car ownership practical and affordable for everyone. He ended up inventing the assembly line and car production as we know it today.
Classic Fords include the Cortina, launched in 1962, and the Mustang, which was introduced two years later. Fast-forward to today and Ford’s most sought-after car is the Fiesta – certainly it’s the car we receive the most enquiries about. We’re not the only people to give it accolades, either – Top Gear magazine named it the Supermini of the Year 2017.
Almost as popular as the Fiesta is the Ford Focus, a spacious family car packed with advanced features like driver-assist technology and Active Park Assist.
Today, Ford is the second-biggest carmaker in the US and the fifth biggest in the world. The company remains in the control of the Ford family and is one of the world’s biggest family-run firms.
Frequently asked questions
How much does a Ford cost to insure?
Cars are grouped into insurance categories devised by the Association of British Insurers (ABI). Insurance groups range from 1-50. The lower the number, the lower your premium should be.
According to our data, average insurance premiums quoted include**:
- Ford Fiesta Style: average premium £822.96 per year
- Ford Focus Style: average premium £607.57 per year
- Ford EcoSport Zetec: average premium £484.19 per year
Why the price differences? The Fiesta is cheap to run and easy to drive, so is the vehicle of choice for many fresh-faced drivers. But because young, inexperienced drivers are high risk, premiums can get pricey. Just be aware that the prices quoted are averages and may not be how much you pay – remember, the cost of your insurance premium takes into account many factors, such as your age, driving history, where you live and the type of car you’re driving.
