As of January next year my current insurance year runs out and I'm looking towards getting a second car for my girlfriend, she will be on both cars..
Alfa 156 2.4 JTD 10v
and the list of contenders;
Fiat Grande Punto 1.3 JTDm 07 plate (valued at £3500) - £1450
Audi A2 1.4 TDi 02 plate (valued at £2500) - £1700+
Vauxhall Astra 1.7 DTi estate (valued at £1000) - £1500+
All quotes are based on 4000 miles for the 156, and 8,000 miles for the "main" economical car. Between us we don't travel far.
What I'm struggling to understand is how a 2002 75 BHP Audi A2 is £300 on top of a Punto...
And how can an Astra estate valued at £1000, be £130 more than a Punto valued at £3,500? I'm not sure where these random prices are coming from?
Now, the quotes themselves aren't bad. I am 21 with 1YNCB and my girlfriend will be a first time driver. So I know for £1450 for her to drive an Alfa 2.4 or a 07 Punto it's a pretty good deal. I'm just really confused as to how a small Audi A2 or an Astra somehow commands a premium over the Punto when it is valued higher than the others?
Sometimes I wonder whether they use a random number generator.
Anyone shed any light on this?
