Insurance is a real world cost and often one which gets forgotten about in the process of buying a new ride for you and your family. Here’s a few cars that are not only great value cars to buy but also represent great value when it comes to insurance costs.

The Escape beats most other crossover SUVs in insurance premiums, perhaps because it scores well in the safety ratings stakes from the IIHS and NHTSA. It is also typically bout by middle aged families who live in suburbs, so has no ‘young sports car’ stigma attached to it driving up insurance premiums.
