Toyota AYGO

Toyota Celica

Having stopped production in 2006, the Celica is only available to buy second-hand, so it’s worth shopping around to find a great deal not just on the car but on car insurance as well. It sits in a fairly high insurance group range, so its premium could be quite steep and running costs could quickly add up. This makes it more important than ever to compare different providers, prices and level of cover, and make sure you get a good deal.

Toyota Corolla

The Toyota Corolla may not be known for its looks, but then that's not why people like it. The Corolla was so popular because it was cheap, practical and functional. If all you want is a car that gets you from A to B safely, economically, and with no fuss, then the Corolla could be the car for you.

Its engine sizes vary from 1.4l to 2.0l, and the typical insurance group range for the Corolla could start from just 8 to as high as 32 for its T Sport model. Generally speaking, the higher the insurance group, the bigger the premium.

Toyota iQ

With its low engine size, the iQ would typically sit in the lower insurance group, so by choosing a smaller engine size you could have a lower insurance premium while keeping the emissions down too, resulting in smaller tax bill. Take a look at the table below for some of the models in the iQ range in relation to their engine size, typical insurance group and tax bracket range.

Toyota Land Cruiser

With engine sizes starting from 3.0l and going all the way up to 4.5l, this full sized SUV is not just a thirsty car but it sits in the typically high insurance group and in the higher end of the tax range. What you could find with a car of this calibre is there may be less insurance options available to you compared to cars with smaller engine sizes or lower insurance groups. That's why it's worth comparing quotes from a range of providers.

Toyota MR2

The typical insurance group is expected to be at the higher end, and on top of this, if you have an accident, the parts may need to be imported from elsewhere which could put the insurance costs up. This might be a good reason to compare different policies to find the right policy for your MR2.

Toyota Prius

Probably the most famous green car on the market, and according to Toyota, it is the original hybrid car. The Prius is ideal for commuters and those who get stuck in traffic as it uses battery power at slower speeds, only drawing on the petrol engine when more power is needed.

The CO2 emissions of some Prius models could be as low as 49g/km where it finds itself in tax band A so it doesn't need to pay any tax.

Toyota RAV4

Arguably one of the most successful small 4x4s currently on the market, the Toyota RAV4 is a sport utility vehicle (SUV) that has been in production since 1994. The RAV4 is aimed at families and designed for consumers that wanted the benefits of the SUV, as well as good maneuvering and fuel economy of a compact car.

Toyota Urban Cruiser

Thanks to it's relatively low engine sizes, the Urban Cruiser could fall under a low insurance group and tax range compared to its rivals (generally speaking, the lower the insurance group, the lower the premium). However, there are a number of factors that could determine how much your premium could be such as your age, value of the car and cost of repairs (read more).

Toyota Verso

The Verso is generally considered to be a well built, reliable MPV. Most of its models typically range between ABI insurance groups 8 and 19. Generally speaking, the lower the engine size, the lower the insurance group. So if you're on a budget, maybe go for the Verso S 1.3 litre. If you prefer a bit more power, then a top of the range 2.2l T Spirit could take your fancy.

Toyota Yaris

For lower potential running costs, it might be worth trying the Yaris T2 or Edition with a lower engine size and generally lower insurance group. Typically, the lower the engine size, the lower the insurance group but it also depends on a number of factors such as the value of the car, security features and your driving history.
