Keeping this in mind, we asked the analysts on Admiral’s Pricing team to find out what exactly are the cheapest cars for drivers under the age of 25 to insure?

Our Pricing Analysts, as clever as they may be, weren’t exactly able to pinpoint the perfect car insurance scenarios for every young driver, but they did help us put together another list of the top 10 cheapest on average for drivers who were under the age of 25 between April and June 2016.

Moving into the number one spot, the Qashqai proves that it doesn’t always have to be small hatchbacks and city-cars. Designed to look more like a sporty SUV, this family car has plenty of legroom and space on the inside.

2. Volkswagen Fox average price £634.02 per year

Holding onto its number two position is the VW Fox. Although discontinued in 2010, you can still get a hold of this foxy vehicle for under £3,000. As one of the cheapest VW’s on the market, you have the joy of having the recognisable look of a VW, without the heavy price tag.
