Cheapest van to insure

  • All three major sectors compared
  • 30 vans have been compared in our survey
  • Insurance has quite a big impact on total life costs

When it comes to total life costs, we tend to think of depreciation, servicing costs and fuel economy. An often overlooked aspect is insurance, and this article breaks down all three sectors (small, medium and large vans) to present you with the cheapest vans for insurance.

We entered the details of a 26-year-old self-employed plumber, who parks on the driveway and covers around 15,000 miles a year for business and pleasure. The driver has held his licence for nine years and all vehicles in each section have similar power ratings and specifications.

Of course, this is just a representative example and quotes will vary depending on your circumstances.

Small Panel Vans (up to 4.5 cubic metres)

Renault Kangoo 2015

Winner: Renault Kangoo

Not surprisingly, the quotes we received for the entry-level small vans varied very little, with the winning quote working out at £391 for the year. Leading the small van section is the Renault Kangoo, thanks to its very basic spec, low list price and fairly gutless 69bhp, 1.5-litre engine.

Medium Panel Vans (4.5 to 7.5 cubic metres)

Fiat Scudo

Winner: Fiat Scudo

Moving up into the medium panel van sector, the variation in price begins to increase. Despite sharing the same engine, chassis and specification as the Citroen Dispatch, Peugeot Expert and Toyota Proace, the Fiat Scudo works out as the cheapest to insure and also boasts the best warranty.

Large Panel Vans (over 7.5 cubic metres)

Peugeot Boxer

Winner: Peugeot Boxer

In the heavyweight sector, the Iveco Daily works out at over 25 percent more expensive to insure than the winner, the Peugeot Boxer, for our representative example. Another surprising aspect that came out of this comparison was just how much more expensive large van insurance is compared with small and medium vans.
