1. Nissan Qashqai - £646.25 per year

It still holds the top spot for this category and just goes to show it doesn’t have to be all about tiny boot space and no rear leg room to get the cheapest insurance price. It’s more expensive to buy than most city cars, but, this urban-crossover more than makes up for it with its sporty handling and tonnes of tech.

2. Seat Mii - £668.83 per year


This tiny city car has bumped the Volkswagen Fox from second place! With great fuel efficiency, NCAP safety rating and many customizable options, every Mii can provide over and above what you need. Seat currently have an offer where you can save £500 if you take a test drive.

3. Fiat 500 - £673.27 per year

Coming in third is the Fiat 500. This quirky city run-around has become one of the most popular cars on UK roads, and it’s no surprise why. Italian retro styling inside and out, along with superb engine choices make this car equally fun to drive as to look at.

4. Citroen C1 - £681.86 per year

Jumping up two spots is this cute city-car. The new design has really enhanced the look and the choice of colours in a dual tone option means the ability for unique styles are endless. With options of keyless go, reversing camera and touch screen, the C1 is a tech box on wheels.

5. Ford Ka - £682.09 per year


Sliding on up to 5th place from 9th is the smallest model from Ford. Still keeping to its roots with the old design, Ford has gone on to create a car that is cheap to run, easy to drive and has excellent build quality. Overall, the Ford Ka remains a very attractive proposition.

6. Mazda 2 - £684.92 per year


New to our top 10 list, the Mazda 2 provides a healthy balance of efficiency and performance. With lots of tech and plenty of character, this car should offer a real thrill to any young driver.

8. Skoda Citigo - £695.63 per year


Compact and agile are two perfect words to describe this little run around. It’s spacious too, with enough room for two adults in the rear seats and a sizeable boot when there aren’t. It was also named What Car? 2017 Best city car under £10,000.

9. Kia Rio - £703.21 per year


The new Kia Rio has knocked its predecessor off of 9th place! Bluetooth audio, air-con and loads of standard equipment can be found on the cheapest base model. All of this and KIA’s renowned seven year warranty means there surely has to be a catch – but there isn’t!

10. Peugeot 107 - £703.68 per year


Bringing up the final spot is the 107, another new member to the club. One of the best selling Peugeot models out there, due to its natural ability to squeeze into the tiniest of parking spaces around town and act like a much larger car on the open road. With a similar design to the previous C1 and Toyota Aygo models, this 107 can vouch for its credentials with huge sales figures.
