What cars have the cheapest insurance for a young driver?

Which would be the best used car for under £2k for a young driver to insure? I've looked at some 1.0L engines but some are over £3k for insurance and some are under £2k. Does it not just go on the engine size?

Insurance groupings for cars do take into account the engine size, but also a number of other factors including repair costs, theft risk and initial purchase price.

You can read our guide to the best cars for new drivers here www.honestjohn.co.uk/guides/cheapest-cars-to-insur.../ but we would recommend looking at cars such as the Volkswagen Polo, Hyundai i10 and Kia Picanto,

It is also worth mentioning that even choosing a car with the lowest possible insurance group could still result in an insurance premium into four figures.
