Motor Insurance Quote Analysis Reveals Car Choices Change With Age

Published: 6/9/2010

After a study of the data gained through the Tesco car insurance comparison site it has been found that car choice is determined a lot by the age of the driver.

The typical Jaguar driver, for example, is 47 years old, whilst if it is a Mercedes then they will be, on average, 43. Moving down a little on the age groups, Volvo drivers tend to be around 42 whilst Porsche drivers, specifically of the 911, Boxster and Cayenne will be around 40 years old.

These marques are only a small sample from the full list, but one thing that is immediately apparent is that, with the average value of these cars higher than the general runabout drivers may well need to be 40 plus in order to get car insurance cover at a reasonable premium, from Tesco Finance or anyone else.
