Do you value the BA ??? !!!! :badgrin:

Insurance is expensive for young ones on any car. I guess not a huge difference between the Yaris and the BA - try asking about an RX8 or an Astra GXR ...

Best answer surely is to keep the BA for you and get her another one, they are quite cheap to buy. You could buy a BA for £500 and insure it for her for another £1,000.

Hope that helps.

The Monash Uni 2017 Used car safety rating buyer's guide has just come out for 2017, based on real-world crashes in Oz and NZ.

As you can see, the 323 (Lantis et al) doesn't rate well. The Yaris rates a bit higher, BJ 323 also.

To be fair, comparing 20+ y.o. cars with modern vehicles isn't really fair! However you can see that, in general, the Euros rate better than the Japanese of a comparable age...especially older cars. I could be cruel and say that's 'cos the Euros were probably not moving anymore! :badgrin:

So your daughter would be better off in a VW Polo perhaps. Honda City- even better (and it'll still be moving). Note the newer Yaris (2012-on) isn't listed, it may not have been involved in enough crashes yet for the stats.

In general, bigger is better and perhaps if you can find a Hyundai i30 or Kia Cerato your daughter will be even safer and perhaps even get ABS/DSC/EBD/etc.

Cheers,
Patrick

I'll be honest I looked at a yaris, swift, micra before I bought my first 1.5 BA and all 3 proved to be more of insurance than the BA Salz so I would stick with it and do whatever you can to get the best policy :)
