Find out which are the cheapest cars to insure if you're over the age of 25.

Car ownership is pretty costly – from the price of fuel, to insuring your car every year and making sure it’s serviced and passes its MOT, it all adds up.

In fact, we recently found the cost of car ownership has doubled in the past 20 years with the average cost increasing from £13,371 in 1995 to £23,768 in 2015.

This increase leaves most of us trying to find the best deal when it comes to buying a car; it’s all well and good grabbing a bargain from the car dealer but not so great if you get your pride and joy home and find insuring it is going to cost an arm and a leg.

To give you a better idea of what to expect from Admiral’s insurance prices we’ve compiled a list of the 10 cars which were, on average, cheapest to insure for drivers over the age of 25 between July and September 2015.

The list is broken down by make and model due to the vast number of specifications within each model type.
