How much does a Hyundai cost to insure?
Here’s a quick indication of what you might expect to pay to insure your Hyundai based on some of our most-quoted-for* models.
At the top of the list is the Hyundai i10, which has been one of the car maker’s most popular models for over a decade. The popular i10 SE model costs around £457* to insure, on average. You can pick up a used i10 from around £3000. It could be a good choice for short hops around town.
For slightly more bang for your buck, the Hyundai i20 packs a bit more of a punch all round. These small family hatchbacks cost a bit more to insure than their little sister with the average premium for an i20 Classic being £668*.
These cost a little more to buy, though. Used prices for the i20 start at around £4,500. But with more boot space and more power under the bonnet, it might be a good choice for a family runaround.
If power is the name of the game, the Hyundai Tucson is a popular choice for families on the move. The Tucson estate is one of the flagship brands from the South Korean manufacturer, so its popularity is not surprising.
The average premium for the Tucson SE Nav Bluedrive CRD 116 comes in at around £414*. which makes it a pretty cost effective choice in terms of insurance.
The differences in insurance costs here are visible depending on the power and value of the cars. But your age, driving history and location could all factor into your own insurance costs.
So, it’s worth thinking of what car suits your needs rather than making a beeline for pure power or a luxury trim.

Hyundai history and facts
Hyundai was the brainchild of Chung Ju-yung, who packed up his job as a rice delivery boy, to set up a car repair service.
In 1947 this became the Hyundai Motor Group, which sounds like it produces cars, but in fact constructed heavy machinery and ran civil engineering projects.
It took 20 years before Mr Chung formed the Hyundai Motor Company and oversaw its first car, the Cortina, which was launched a year later in collaboration with Ford.
In 1975 Hyundai introduced its and South Korea’s first car, the Pony, following this with the Graneur, which was effectively a kit version of the Ford Granada.
Aside from Ford, Hyundai established links with Kia, owning a 34% stake in the Corporation. Since 1992 it has been an official sponsor of the FIFA World Cup, reflecting its export reach to more than 190 countries worldwide.
- Hyundai’s stylised ‘H’ badge is a silhouette of two people shaking hands, member of the car maker’s staff and a satisfied customer.
- Hyundai was the first automaker to offer a 10-year or 100,000-mile warranty.
- All employees at the company’s massive Ulsan plant, which churns out over 1.5 million cars a year, get a free lunch every single day. This honours a promise made by Chung Ju-Yung.
