As sales of expensive sports cars and petrol guzzling 4x4s drop due to the current financial climate, motorists are searching for cars that provide more economic solutions, especially when it comes to car insurance.
A survey of 1,000 Swinton customers found that when purchasing a new car, the top five cost considerations were:
1. Price of vehicle
2. Car insurance premium
3. Petrol consumption/cost
4. Road tax
Steve Chelton, Insurer Development Manager for Swinton motor insurance, said: "With the current financial climate, people are thinking long and hard before committing themselves to buying a new or used car.
"There are many things to consider before buying a vehicle, and being able to find cheap yet good value car insurance is one of them. We'd advise anyone who's buying a car to get a quote a car insurance quote before making a purchase to avoid becoming trapped with costly monthly premiums."
