Car insurance: Fiesta steals Golf's crown

Thursday, 23 April 2009

The number of European motorists taking out car insurance policies for the Ford Fiesta may be on the rise, if new figures are anything to go by.

Data from Jato Dynamics has revealed the model has stolen the crown of the continent's most popular auto from the Volkswagen Golf.

The supermini has continued to sell well in the UK despite the economic downturn and has enjoyed increased sales in Italy and Germany.

David Di Girolamo, head of Jato Consult, pointed out the car's success in the latter two countries may be partly due to the introduction of vehicle scrappage incentive schemes.

He stated: "We will track the markets with interest as it will be important to understand if this is a short term reaction by consumers or if it will have a prolonged effect."

Drivers who buy the Fiesta may benefit from low cost motor insurance as a result of the vehicle's relatively small engine size.
