Cheap insurance can go in hand with cheap car tax. There are a number of cars on the market that offer low or free car tax. A great example of low car tax and low insurance is the Vauxhall Corsa ecoFLEX. The 1.0 litre petrol ecoFLEX Corsa is road tax band C so road tax is free for the first year of ownership then only £30 per year thereafter. The three door Vauxhall ecoFLEX Corsa boasts co2 emissions of just 98g/km and a combined fuel consumption of 76.3mpg. The five door version is just as economical achieving co2 emission of just 99g/km.
The funky Fiat 500 1.2i petrol models with Start/Stop technology are also road tax band C so you will only spend £60 in car tax across the first three years of ownership. This car comfortably seats four people and is fantastic value to the consumer as well as being one of the greenest cars in its class. It also leads the way with the latest USB-compatible eco:Drive system which shows the driver how to improve fuel economy and cut emissions.
If you are looking for something larger how about the Skoda Fabia Estate 1.2i S model which offers a cheap combination of low insurance and band D £95 tax after the initial twelve months which are free. The 1.2-litre 16v model manages to return a figure in the region of 48mpg on the combined cycle which is something many small diesels would be proud of. This choice is an amazingly economic option if you need a little more capacity.
