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 facts
  • 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.

What's new with Hyundai?

Hyundai is Korean for ‘modern times’ a phrase that captures the progressive vision of founder Chung Ju-Yung. It’s a motif that has prevailed over the years, with the carmaker at the fore of many innovations in the field of alternatives to fossil fuel-run engines.

The company recently launched three zero emission cars, which are being revised all the time to extend driving range, comfort and connectivity.

Hyundai Kona Electric

The new swish and stylish Kona Electric has a streamlined design, with smooth sculptured lines that are designed to flow harmoniously into the body-coloured wheel arch-claddings, and complement the exclusive 17-inch wheels. 

The Kona Electric has a driving range of up to 300 miles, and a rapid charging function, achieving up to 80% charge in 47 minutes. It can go from zero to 62 mph in 7.9 seconds and has a top speed of 104 mph.

The range comprises four SUVs, which have a basis retail price of from £28,842 to £30,467 and are in insurance groups 20A to 24A. These cars have a range of up to 300 miles.

Hyundai Nexo

The Hyundai Nexo is powered by a second-generation, emission-free hydrogen fuel cell system, which provides a driving range of up to 414 miles. This generation of hydrogen cells consumes as little as 1kg of H per 100km and takes just five minutes to charge.

The Nexo comes with a number of top-class features designed for comfort and convenience. These include a 12.3-inch widescreen navigation system, wireless charging, and the Hyundai SmartSense Advanced Driver Assistance System.

In terms of performance, the Nexo has a top speed of 111 mph and can accelerate to 62 mph in 9.54 seconds. The car has a retail price of from £68,495, with optional extras, such as certain paint jobs bumping up the cost.

Hyundai Ioniq

There are two models in the Hyundai Ioniq range, the Premium and Premium SE. Both have a sleek, coupe-style silhouette, which has a practical advantage as an aesthetic one, with the aerodynamic profile resulting in just 0.24 coefficient of drag.

With a top speed of 102.5 mph and 115 mph, the cars are capable of going from zero to 62 mph in 9.9 seconds. The Ioniq models have a battery range of up to 194 miles in Sport mode. It can be recharged to 80% in 57 minutes.

Neither models emit CO2, both having an electric motor single speed and a 1.6 litre engine These cars retail from £27,009 and £28,676, respectively. The Premium is in insurance group 16E, while the SE is in group 17E.

Where next for Hyundai?

As part of its commitment to perpetuating green driving solutions Hyundai has pledged to produce 500,000 cars with hydrogen fuel cell technology by 2030. The hydrogen is stored in three high strength tanks to ensure security in the event of a collision.

Refuelling is straightforward. The hydrogen 700 bar nozzle is connected to the car and in five minutes you’re ready to go. An on-board system lets you know where the closest refuel points are, so there’s no chance of running dry.

The company is keen to be at the forefront of the next generation of cars, breathing new life into Chung Ju-Yung’s mantra: “How does one know it’s impossible if one hasn’t tried it?”
